    Zogby: Al Gore Leads Blind Poll

    A Zogby International “blind bio” telephone poll shows that former Vice President Al Gore is favored over the current Democratic frontrunners by likely Democratic Party voters nationwide – particularly among liberal Democrats.

    When Democratic likely voters were given brief biographical descriptions of the top three Democratic candidates – New York Sen. Hillary Clinton, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, and former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards – along with the biography of Gore, the former Vice President won 35% support, while Clinton won 24%, Obama won 22% and Edwards trailed with 10% support. Gore’s bio was the top choice of both men (39%) and women (31%), and also most favored by younger voters. Self-described liberal Democrats strongly favored Gore’s bio (43%) over Clinton (21%), Edwards (17%) and Obama (12%). The bio selections of moderate Democrats closely mirrors the choices of likely Democratic voters overall, with 36% giving the greatest preference to Gore’s bio.

    In a blind bio poll, the names of the candidates are not used, but are replaced with a brief description of each candidate’s biographies. Those biographies are included in the chart below. The telephone survey commissioned by AlGore.org was conducted October 24-27, 2007, included 527 likely Democratic voters nationwide, and carries a margin of error of +/- 4.4 percentage points.

    A separate Zogby Interactive survey also conducted last week shows Gore’s overwhelming favorability among Democrats – 92% gave Gore a positive rating, with 67% saying they held a very favorable view of the former Vice President. This nationwide poll of adults finds the vast majority of progressives (97%) and liberals (98%) view Gore favorably, with more than two in three moderates (67%) holding a positive opinion of Gore.

    This latest telephone survey shows 35% of likely Democratic voters are “very satisfied” with the current field of declared Democratic Party candidates regarding their position on the Iraq war and plan to vote for one of the current candidates. But three in five (60%) would at least consider voting for someone new based on this issue, with 7% who are somewhat dissatisfied and would prefer a new candidate and 12% who said they are very dissatisfied and are strongly hoping for a new candidate. Nearly two in three (65%) said they would support a Presidential candidate who has always opposed the war in Iraq and 68% would support a candidate who initially supported the Iraq war but now opposes it. The vast majority (89%) want U.S. troops to be brought back from Iraq as soon as possible.

    When asked about the current field of candidates and their position on global climate change, 29% said they are very satisfied and plan to vote for one of the current candidates, but 65% said they would be open to supporting a new candidate based on this issue. Nearly half (47%) said they are somewhat satisfied with the current field’s position on global climate change, but would consider supporting someone new, while 9% are somewhat dissatisfied and would prefer a new candidate – 8% are very dissatisfied with the current candidates’ stances on global climate change and are strongly hoping for a new candidate. Eighty-four percent believe global warming should be a top priority of the next administration.

    That is a tough call there. Both are equally nauseating IMO.

    I think I have just invented a cure for insomnia. I should record a debate between Bob Dole and Al Gore.

    We could also use an Al Gore - Hillary Clinton debate on the poison control emergency telephone service! - "to induce vomiting, press 3"

    Those are the most worthless polls in the world, IMO.

    They are so easily influenced by how the bio is written and what is included and not included.

    It's even more worthless given how high-profile the respective candidates are... Gore and Hillary (and even Edwards and Obama to a lesser degree) bring so much baggage to the table that you can't possibly discount the impact that their name has on people's opinions of them.

    Face it... the media loves that fat, pompous A--hole and desperately wants him to run.

    I agree. I don't put too much into any poll. During the last election (Bush vs Kerry) the exit polls showed that Kerry would win but by the end of the evening that proved not to be the case

    By the way... that's the Rev. Fred Phelps with Gore in the photos...

    Although Phelps hosted fund raisers for him (which he and Tipper attended) and was a Gore delegate at the DNC, Gore refuses to comment...

    If we can have a picture of prominent republicans shaking hands with a dictator we were told was so dangerous that we have to invade his country and take him out. And shaking hands with him shortly after he killed a bunch of his own people.

    Not so sure these current pictures could not be spinned by the politicos.

    Eitherway...I don't want gore in office.

    That's my point... how many times have you seen the picture of Rumsfeld shaking hands with Sadam... or Cheney...

    Those same people would defend Gore as he's one of their's...

    This is a little different though. Diplomatic hospitality is different than getting in political bed with people for money. Phelps supported him because Gore opposed a gay bill of rights and stated that homosexuality was not something that society should affirm.

    Why is that never brought up?

    It probably was at one time, no need for it now as I don't think he will run...at least I HOPE he does not run.
