When Italian surgeon Dr. Sergio Canavero first announced his plans to conduct the first head transplant at some point, there were a few in the medical community who expressed some doubts.

A new ABC News-Washington Post poll out Monday morning has the latest numbers for both the Democratic and Republican candidates for president in 2016.
