Gallup: McCain, Clinton Not Wanted as President

From Gallup:

When Americans are asked which of the leading candidates left in the race for president they least want to see elected president this year, 40% name John McCain, 36% Hillary Clinton, and 20% Barack Obama.

McCain leads this inauspicious list in part because he is the only Republican among the three candidates -- meaning he is the primary focus of Democrats and independents who lean Democratic, while Republicans can split their choices between Obama and Clinton.

Seventy-one percent of Democrats name McCain. Republicans divide their answers between the two Democratic candidates, although they name Clinton by nearly 2-to-1 over Obama, 60% vs. 34%.
