A new Wall Street Journal / NBC News poll came out today. They asked about the current presidents approval rating but they also asked about whom people liked for 2008. Hillary, Obama, and Edwards are the top three for the Democrats.
For the Republicans the top three are Giuliani, McCain, and Gingrich. That’s right, Newt is ahead of Romney. The survey asked about one scenario for the general election, McCain vs. Edwards (not quite sure why they choose the #3 Democrat and #2 Republican.) Anyway, Edwards beat McCain by 2%. Yeah, yeah, I know it is early. But McCain is a sitting senator who is in the news every day. The last time I saw John Edwards in the news it was over a staff member trying to hustle Wal-Mart for a PlayStation3. One would think that McCain would be able to poll ahead of Edwards at this point.

Thanks to STS for bringing the Bloomberg / LA Times poll to our attention.
Sorry about the story but the WSJ has added two pages of questions to their report since our post was first written. They do have Hillary ahead of McCain but only when adding Bloomberg as an independent. McCain does win over Obama in a head to head race.
