A new poll says Hillary Rodham Clinton has widened an already strong lead over her Democratic rivals in Michigan.
But the poll says the picture on the Republican side remains unclear.
Forty-nine percent of 400 likely Democratic presidential primary voters polled by Lansing-based EPIC-MRA said the New York senator was their pick. Eighteen percent backed Senator Barack Obama of Illinois and 15 percent favored former Senator John Edwards of North Carolina.
Among the 400 likely Republican presidential primary voters polled, former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani got 28 percent, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney had 25 percent and former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson had 13 percent.
The polls of the two groups released Thursday each had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.
They were conducted by telephone November 7th through Tuesday for The Detroit News and television stations WXYZ, WILX, WOOD and WJRT.
