*More than nine in ten Iowa Democrats (93%) agree it is in keeping with the country’s values and history of compassion to lead an effort to solve some of the most serious problems facing the world’s poorest people. The ONE Poll–Iowa also found that more than eight in ten Democrats (86%) agree that reducing poverty, treating
preventable diseases and improving education in poor countries will help make the world safer and the United States more secure.
*When it comes to addressing these issues, more than eight in ten Democrats (82%) would be more likely to vote for a candidate who supports reducing by half the number of the people who live in extreme global poverty and suffer from hunger.
*The poll found that 30% of Iowa caucus-goers favor John Edwards for president in 2008. Hillary Clinton is favored by 22% of Democrats, Barack Obama by 18% and Bill Richardson by 13%.
