Today's Daily News has blockbuster front-page news: In a poll of New York City residents, more would pick their own senator to be the Democratic presidential nominee than would pick a freshman Illinois senator with far lower name recognition. (Who'd have thunk it?) If there's any interest to the poll, it's in the demographic breakdowns.

• New York City voters who would pick Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nominee: 43 percent
• New York City voters who would pick Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nominee: 24 percent
