Netroots Rooting for Edwards in Presidential Debate

The majority of the netroots is rooting for John Edwards in tonight's Democratic Presidential Debate, according to an informal poll over at dkos.

But that's no surprise.

Time and time again, John Edwards has led on issues crucial to the base. Obama and Clinton have sometimes followed his lead; other times they have not. While polls among the general population find Clinton in first place, Obama in second and Edwards in third, that is far from the case when it comes to the netroots.

The dkos poll results are in line with virtually every netroots poll I've seen.

The question:

Who are you rooting for in tonight's Democratic presidential debate?

Edwards is currently at #1 with 37 percent; Obama is #2 with 22 percent; Bill Richardson is #3 with 14 percent; No one in particular is #4 with 13 percent.

Hillary? Trailing behind Dennis Kucinich, Senator Clinton is #6 with 3 percent.

Number of votes at this time: 10,078.

Go vote in the dkos poll. (Thanks to Bill in Portland Maine!)
