Marist poll

The May 6 Marist poll has a few bits of interesting data. One that I like is as follows:

For the Democrats, it’s John Edwards, not either of the two marquis names of Kerry or Clinton who runs strongest against the top Republicans. Edwards is numerically three points ahead of Rudy Giuliani and three points behind John McCain. Statistically both contests are a tossup.

Unless the two Senators have acquired titles of nobility, that should be "marquee names," but you get the picture.

In other news, Clark gets 4% support in the Democratic primary, but I know it's higher than that among activist types. Clinton gets 40%, which is way above what you'll find if you poll the activists, and the Kerry/Edwards 18/16 are a bit inflated too.
