Hofstra poll: McCain leads suburban vote


Don't expect to hear a peep from the Networks about this poll. I know it!

Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain holds a slight edge over Democratic rival Sen. Barack Obama among suburban voters, according to a new poll sponsored by Hofstra University to be released Monday.

The nationwide poll, conducted for Hofstra's National Center for Suburban Studies, found that 48 percent of suburban voters said they support McCain, compared to 42 percent for Obama.

By comparison, the poll found that McCain leads Obama among rural voters, 51 percent to 35 percent, while Obama is ahead in urban areas, 57 percent to 34 percent.

The results of the poll are scheduled to be released at 1 p.m. Monday at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
