Gore More Competitive Than Clinton In IA
Despite campaigning for an entire year, Hillary Clinton does not fare as well against national Republican frontrunner Rudy Giuliani in Iowa, as compared to non-candidate and former Vice President Al Gore.
In a head-to-head matchup poll of registered Iowa voters conducted October 12-14 by SurveyUSA, Clinton leads Giuliani by 5 points—48 to 43 percent. Gore leads Giuliani by 9 points—51 to 42 percent. Gore won the Hawkeye State in his 2000 presidential election bid.
Gore is also as competitive a candidate as Clinton in each of the 6 other states for which SurveyUSA has released polling data during the past week.
In New Mexico, Gore is up 4 points on Giuliani with Clinton up 1 point.
In Ohio, Gore is up 4 points with Clinton up by 2 points.
In Kentucky, Gore leads by 1 point and Clinton leads by 2 points.
In Missouri, Gore is up 5 points and Clinton is up 7 points.
In Kansas both Clinton and Gore trail Giuliani by 17 points.
In Alabama, Gore trails Giuliani by 9 points, and Clinton trails by 8 points.
One note: the SurveyUSA poll was conducted just as Al Gore co-won the Nobel Peace prize (on October 12th).
