Of registered Republicans, 46 percent think McCain is most likely to beat the Democratic presidential nominee in November.

Clinton and Obama are competing for votes in New York City, where half the state's Democratic voters live. Clinton has 43 percent there compared with 39 percent for Obama. Of likely Democratic primary voters, 59 percent believe Clinton, a New York senator, has the best chance to defeat the Republican nominee.


The WNBC 4/Marist poll was conducted by phone from Jan. 15 to Jan 17. It involved interviews with 1,467 registered voters in New York and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percent.
