Kiwis prefer Obama in poll

"A poll of New Zealanders asking who they would like to see run against Republican John McCain in the US election revealed 47 per cent chose Obama, compared to 31 per cent supporting Hillary Clinton. A further 22 per cent were unable to offer an opinion. The telephone survey involved 750 people aged 18 and over, interviewed between April 24 and May 1... The poll found National and Labour voters [the more right and left wing parties respectively] recorded almost identical results with National voters preferring Obama 44% to 33% and Labour voters preferring him 47% to 33%."
