Sixteen states surveyed.
Clinton, Edwards, and Obama beat Thompson in the following states:
Washington, Oregon, California, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Wisconsin, New York, Missouri, Iowa, New Mexico.
Clinton and Edwards beat Thompson in the following states, while Obama loses or ties (in Ohio) Thompson:
Kentucky, Texas, Ohio
In one state, Edwards and Obama beat Thompson while Clinton loses to him:
In only one state all 3 Democratic contenders lose to Thompson:
At this point in time all 3 Democratic contenders do very well against Thompson across the board. Since Edwards has one state in which he wins vs. Clinton losing (Kansas) while Obama loses by himself in 3 states, the ranking in this particular contest should probably be 1. Edwards 2. Clinton 3. Obama
Of course, it is early in the contest, and Thompson has not announced yet. But perhaps if Thompson sees how badly he fares against all 3 Democratic candidates across the board he may not even bother going through with this thing.
