The latest USA Today/Gallup polling numbers are out and they show both the Democratic and Republican front-runners are gaining strength.

• In the race for the Republican presidential nomination, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani has a 10 percentage point lead nationally over former Tennessee senator Fred Thompson. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., maintains his place in third.

• In the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has a 16-point lead over second-place Sen. Barack Obama. Former vice president Al Gore, who has repeatedly said he has no plans to run for the White House in 2008, comes in third.

Interestingly, I recently saw a graphic in Newsweek that showed no matter how you slice it any Democrat wins just outside the margin of error against any Republican. I wonder how those numbers are looking today?
