Despite having absolutely no plans to run for president, Al Gore has as much — or even more — support than John Edwards:
The latest poll put Clinton at 36 percent, Obama at 24 percent, Gore at 14 percent and Edwards at 12 percent. None of the other Democrats running received more than 3 percent. With Gore removed from the field, Clinton would gain ground on Obama, leading the Illinois senator 43 percent to 27 percent. Edwards ran third at 14 percent. The poll was completed the night Gore’s documentary film “An Inconvenient Truth” won an Academy Award.
The real point of the Post article from which this is taken is the gain Obama is making on Hilary, as black voters begin to shift their support to Obama.
