Associated Press

Sen. Bob Dole would beat President Clinton by a slim margin if a head-to-head presidential election were held today, according to a poll released Saturday.

The Newsweek poll of 755 adults to be published in the magazine’s June 15 edition shows the Kansas Republican ahead of Clinton 49 percent to 40 percent.

The poll’s margin of error was plus or minus four percentage points.

The Newsweek poll also showed Clinton beating House Speaker Newt Gingrich in a one-on-one presidential race, with 52 percent favoring Clinton and 33 percent for Gingrich, R-Ga.
