Polls Find Voters Weighing Issues vs. Electability

See full New York Times article

Democratic voters in Iowa and New Hampshire – the states that begin the presidential nominating battle – say Sen. Barack Obama and John Edwards are more likely than Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton to say what they believe, rather than what they think voters want to hear, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News Polls. But they also view Clinton as the best prepared and most electable Democrat in the field. On the GOP side, voters say they like former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney best on the issue of immigration, but believe that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani would be more electable next November.
