Poll: Giuliani, Clinton lead presidential race

WASHINGTON (AP) - A new poll shows Hillary Rodham Clinton still holding her big lead over her nearest Democratic rival.

The Associated Press-Ipsos poll finds the New York senator keeping her 2-to-1 lead over Illinois Senator Barack Obama. The 45 percent to 22 percent margin is about the same margin as last month's -- before the fallout that followed last week's Democratic presidential debate.

The polls gave John Edwards 12 percent.

Among Republicans, the survey suggests that Rudy Giuliani is holding on to his slight advantage over closest competitor Fred Thompson.

Three other GOP candidates also stayed roughly where they were a month ago. The poll gave John McCain 13 percent, Mitt Romney 12 percent, and Mike Huckabee 10 percent.

The AP-Ipsos poll involved telephone interviews with more than 1,000 adults from November 5th-7th. It had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
