Wednesday, August 24, 2005

Most Americans (56%) say it is somewhat or very likely that Senator Hillary Clinton will be the 2008 Presidential Nominee for the Democrats. While that's still enough to grant her front-runner status, that's down eight points from 64% two weeks ago.

Just 24% now say the former First Lady is "very likely" to win the nomination. That's down from 33% two weeks ago and is the lowest level recorded all year by Rasmussen Reports. (review trends).
