The Post has a New Poll!

Okay, first off, here’s the cheat sheet link!  Here is the full breakdown. 

Interesting is that Hillary Clinton appears to have a very strong lead amongst Democrats.  Can she be stopped?  Looks hard to be honest with you. 

Rudy is in first place, McCain in second, and the newly minted candidate Fred Thompson in third.  (Newt is in 4th Georgians). 

It’s a national poll so take it with a grain of salt…

    Given the number primaries on Feb 5th, I think the national polls mean a lot more this year than they normally would.

    Waterboy,

    He went from 9% in January to 9% in April and 9% now. How do these numbers represent that they “keep going up!”?

    Re: Hillary, it’s been trendy among Republicans to bash Hillary for a long time now, but the fact of the matter is that she’s well-spoken and highly intelligent and every moment of camera time that she gets is a moment that her numbers go up. There are plenty of reasons not to vote for Hillary Clinton, but she’s a great candidate and she’ll be a strong contender if not the nominee.

  6. Nicki says:

    Hey, I defended Dan Quayle, too. It still doesn’t change the fact that Hillary generally knows her stuff. And knows where the bodies are buried, plus probably put some there.

    Thoughts:

    If you turn this election into a referendum on Hillary, we (Republicans) lose. America is past that point and Republicans just need to accept it. If we’re going to win, we’re going to have to win on the issues and because we understand that American wants something different.

    If you can, go back and watch Meet the Press yesterday. GREAT panel.

    waterboy,

    All that shows is that Romney’s name ID is on the rise as it should since he has been spending millions for months…

    “If you turn this election into a referendum on Hillary, we (Republicans) lose. America is past that point and Republicans just need to accept it. If we’re going to win, we’re going to have to win on the issues and because we understand that American wants something different. ”

    My thoughts exactly. We tried running “against” a Clinton in 1992 and 1996. If we don’t have an optimistic, Morning in America type message, it doesn’t matter who we run, or who we run against.

  10. Federalist says:

    This ought to make Jeff E”wo”manuel angry…if the Republicans aren’t going to run against Hilary, what are they going to for?

    Tuesday, June 05, 2007

    With former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson taking his first formal steps towards a Presidential run and the immigration debate creating challenges for Arizona Senator John McCain, the race for the Republican Presidential nomination has an entirely different look this week.
