    It was an open ended question:

    If the 2008 presidential election were held today, who would you vote for president? Just tell me the name.

    Here's the total chart:

    ALL D R
    (All Names Given by Respondent)
    DON’T KNOW 30.7 22.7 34.8
    CLINTON 18.0 30.0 2.1
    OBAMA 13.8 20.4 6.7
    ROMNEY 8.9 * 21.8
    EDWARDS 8.9 16.1 *
    GULIANI 4.0 10.0
    RICHARDSON 3.5 5.5 1.8
    OTHER 2.6 2.8 2.4
    THOMPSON, F 2.1 * 5.2
    MCCAIN 1.0 1.8
    PAUL 1.0 * 2.4
    GINGRICH * 1.2
    THOMPSON, T * 2.1
    DODD * *
    BIDEN * * *
    BROWNBACK * 1.2
    HAGEL * * *
    HUCKABEE * 2.4
    KUCINICH * *
    *= mentioned, by <1%; blank=not mentioned in subsample </p>

    You will note that three Democratic canidates scored over 1% amoungst Republicans (Richardson got 1.8%), while no Republican canidate (at all) scored more than 1% amoungst Democrats.  Also, look at the overall numbers.  First is Don't Know, then a D, then another D, then a R, then a D, then a R, then a D, then "Other".  The top two canidates were both Democrats, and only two of the top eight responses were Republicans.
