Dems Enthused About Candidates, Republicans Not So Hot On McCain

Real the full USA Today/Gallup poll

The USA Today/Gallup poll conducted Feb.8-10 finds most Democrats believe both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are better than most candidates who have run in their lifetimes (62 percent say it about Clinton and 60 percent about Obama). But among Republicans, only 34 percent say that of John McCain and 52 percent rank him as not much different than other candidates. Gallup says that what this dynamic means for the general election is unclear, as horse-race polls show McCain competitive with both Democrats in a general election. The margin of error is 3 percent.
