Presidential Race AP Poll

WASHINGTON (AP) -- An Associated Press-Ipsos poll on the 2008 election shows Senator Hillary Clinton has an across-the-board lead in the Democratic race over Illinois Senator Barack Obama (ber-AHK' oh-BAH'-muh).

Clinton leads by 34 percent to 20 percent, roughly the margin she has enjoyed for months.

Lagging behind is former Senator John Edwards of North Carolina at ten percent. Another 12 percent had no preference.

Clinton's lead stretches even more when Democrats supporting former Vice President Al Gore -- who hasn't said he will run -- are divided among their second choices.

Then, she is ahead of Obama by 43 percent to 23 percent.

The poll was conducted this week and involved 1,000 telephone interviews. It had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points.
