Clinton Leads By 12 Points In California

Clinton is leading in a new poll of California voters.
The latest Field Poll, taken among 377 likely Democratic primary voters Jan. 14-20, gives Clinton a 12-point lead over Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, 39 percent to 27 percent.

Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards comes in a distant third with 10 percent, and by more than 2 to 1, his supporters say they would vote for Obama if Edwards were to drop out of the race, the poll showed. The senator from New York retains an advantage over Obama among a wide swath of California voters, including Latinos by 40 points, seniors by 22 points, and both women and Asian Americans by 19 points. Clinton also is ahead among every voter age group and in every geographic region of California, the poll showed.
California has a rather complicated system of choosing convention delegates.
