(Newser) – They were in a dead heat two weeks ago, but a new USA TODAY/Gallup poll out today puts Hillary back in front for the Dem nomination with a double-digit spread over Barack. The red team is also shaking up, with not-quite-official candidate Fred Thompson stealing second standing from John McCain.

Clinton leads Obama 33% to 21% if Al Gore is included in the field, and 39% to 26% if he's not. Giuliani leads the GOP field at 28%, down 4% from the last poll. Thompson is in second at 19%, McCain at 18%.
