NewsMax/Zogby: Clinton Continues To Dominate Dems

Another poll shows Hillary Clinton dominating the Democratic field.

"New York Sen. Hillary Clinton has extended her lead in the race for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in New Hampshire, capturing 38% support as the contest enters the crucial fall phase, a new NewsMax/Zogby International telephone poll shows.

Illinois Sen. Barack Obama has slipped slightly but retains a strong grasp on second place with 23% support, while former senator John Edwards of North Carolina faded to 12%, the survey shows. Ten percent said they remain unsure about who to support in the race."

An interesting tidbit, "Obama leads among likely Democratic primary voters under age 30 with 38%, compared to 30% for Clinton. The two are closely matched among those age 30–49, but Clinton holds a strong advantage among those over 50. Among those age 50–64, she holds a 45% to 18% edge over Obama, with Edwards at 17%, and she wins among those age 65 and older, 45% to 14% for Obama."

Here are the poll results:

Clinton: 38%
Obama: 23%
Edwards: 12%
Richardson: 8%
Kucinich: 3%
Biden: 2%
Dodd: 2%
Gravel <1%
Not Sure: 10%
