Presidential Race Poll

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The latest Associated Press-Ipsos poll shows Hillary Clinton holding a sizable lead over Barack Obama in the Democratic race for the White House.

The New York senator also outpaces her Illinois counterpart among black and Hispanic Democrats, according to a combined sample of two months of polls.

Neither Obama nor former North Carolina Senator John Edwards have threatened Clinton in national polls. But both are giving her a chase in other areas. Obama leads her in fund-raising for the primary and Edwards is running stronger in Iowa.

Nationally, the combined sample found that Clinton has the edge among black Democrats, with 46 percent of their support to Obama's 33 percent.

Her advantage is even wider among Hispanics. She has the support of 45 percent of them to Obama's 17 percent.

    I like the fact that with Hillary we actually get two for the price of one, Bill and Hill...provided she lets Bill participate. The problem I have with Hillary is that she definitely holds grudges and that could quickly make her in-effective. Obama seems very level headed and a very quick study and I think has much less baggage and may surprise a lot of people because he does like to read and unlike Hillary who did not read the full Iraq report prior to going to war, Obama would no doubt have digested every word and we would not be in the mess we are today.
