    Disappointing. But it could mean as much as exit polls at the last election ...


    I've never heard of this Mitt Romney guy ...

    Did you miss the sarcastic font on the Romney comment? God I hope so...

    As for the poll, neither one has a snowball's chance to be nominated so it's all academic anyway.

    Good news for Hillary:

    If she runs, she would get about 55 million votes, which would have been enough to win the 2000 election.

    Bad news for Hillary:

    If she runs, her opponent would get about 80 million votes, because the turnout to vote against her would dwarf the 120 million who voted in 2004.

    I have absolutely no idea why the conservatives within the Republican party would favor Giuliani over McCain, other than sheer ignorance.

    A poll in November 1991 had George H.W. Bush beating Bill Clinton 65-35 in Clinton's home state, IIRC.

    The point being, it's an eternity to election day.

    McCain's best chance to win the presidency is to run against Hillary.

    The next two years are going to be really interesting...

    I'm with TigerVols on neither of them having a chance to be nominated.

    As for the question of conservatives favoring Rudy, they like guys who act tough and bully people and kickass on criminals like suqeegee men and panhandlers in the NYC streets...
    oh yeah, and condone police brutality

    Their conservo-chubby will disappear as soon as they discover Rudy is pro-gun control, pro-choice, and supports gay rights.

    Guess McCain donning his kneepads for the religious right is paying off...

    A_F posts this like it's some sort of surprise.

    I think I would poll higher than Hillary, despite being 10 years from being able to run for President.

    This may be true, and you are correct that it's an eternity until election day, but what Bill Clinton had going for him was that he was an unknown quantity, who was able to define himself and rise from nowhere. Hilary Clinton's problem is that she is too much of a known quantity. That's great if you are adored. It's really hard to overcome, if you're not.

    Those are all the reasons I like him... Even the stuff Spnited said...
