5:09 pm
first, it is hard to poll in a presidential primary state this far in advance. voter exposure has been uneven and people are just beginning candidate shopping. candidates can and do stumble unexpectedly. let's look at recent history, on this date four years ago, remember him, herman cain was on top of the gop field. and the end personal scandal was -- hit. even rick santorum had a turn on top of the polls in february, leading by as much is 15 points before romney took over for good. now, let's talk democrats. on this day in 2007 hillary clinton led then senator, barack obama, i 26 points.
