Republican John McCain trails Democrat Barack Obama by three points in a national general election test, but leads Democrat Hillary Clinton by 10 points, the latest Zogby Interactive survey shows.

The online poll, conducted April 25-28, 2008, shows that Obama retains 80% support among Democrats, compared to just 66% of Democrats who said they will back Clinton against McCain, the survey shows. Against Obama, McCain wins 11% of the Democratic support, while he wins 10% support against Clinton. In the McCain-Clinton race, 12% of Democrats said they were undecided, compared to just 4% of Democrats who were undecided in the McCain-Obama race.

Asked who they thought would be the next president, McCain led the way with 45%, compared to 40% for Obama. Just 11% said they thought Clinton would be the next one to occupy the Oval Office. Only 20% of Democrats said they think Clinton will be the next president, compared to 63% who believe Obama will get the job done.

Interestingly, 1% said they think former vice president-turned-Nobel laureate Al Gore will be the one to succeed George W. Bush in the White House.

The survey included 7,653 likely voters nationwide and carries a margin of error of +/- 1.1 percentage points.

In a general election match-up between McCain and Clinton: McCain 44%; Clinton 34%; Ralph Nader 3%; Bob Barr 4%; not sure/someone else 16%.

In a general election match-up between McCain and Obama: McCain 42%; Obama 45%; Nader 1%; Barr 3%; not sure/someone else 8%.

Asked which candidate - McCain or Clinton - most shares your values, 48% said McCain, compared to 37% who said McCain, with 15% not sure.

Between McCain and Obama, 48% said McCain shared their values, compared to 44% who said Obama most shared their values.

Among Democrats, 9% were more likely to say McCain more reflects their values than Clinton, and 12% of Democrats said McCain is closer to their values than Obama.
