    I find it interesting that this state supports two candidates (Vernon Jones, and Fred Thompson) who have yet to even make an formal announcement that they will run for those offices. Both have only expressed interest. And if thats the case, I have interest in both offices, so you can now vote for me in the straw polls.

  2. Tommy_a2b says:

    When are:
    Tommy Thompson 1%,
    Chuck Hagel 1%,
    Jim Gilmore 1%,
    Duncan Hunter 1%,
    going to drop out of the race? They are a wasting America’s time. If you are unable to get out some form of message that is getting some attention and getting you some followers then stop wasting our time. These are all good men but who cares at this point?

  3. John Konop says:


    They stay in because they help with the debate. Also many are running for VP or cabinet positions. And also sometimes a dark horse breaks out winning or doing well in a early primary. Finally if we do not have a clear winner at the end of the primaries their supporters could have a say at the end!

  4. Common Sense says:

    It’s always cute when SV puts % signs next to their personal predications as if they had called “voters” and “polled” them.

    In 2005 they had Ralph Reed with 88% named ID a year out. Real polls had him at 30%.

    I know we are all addicted to polls like crack, but SV just gives us baking powder.

  5. drjay says:

    i know this year is suppose to be “different”but dude–if you look at polls from this far out in years like 68, 72, 76, 88, 92, 04 you may or may not see the nominee in those polls- lieberman was leading them at 1st and then dean for the dems in 04 for instance–muskie was all but annointed in 72, carter was pulling in around 1% at 1st—if they are still going nowhere at the end of the year that’s one thing–but its still only june…

  6. Ragnar Danneskjöld says:

    I take Strategic Vision Polls as seriously as I do John Konop. So ya know…

    Amen Common Sense. They are hacks

  7. Bull Moose says:

    Thank you Dr. Jay. It’s a marathon not a sprint. In 2004 Wes Clark was the leading candidate when he was drafted into the race. That didn’t turn out so hot. And Howard Dean was beating them all even going into Iowa.

    John McCain is tied for the lead in a new national poll put out yesterday. Keep your powder dry and stay reasonable in reading too much into these early polls.

    As for Thompson, lest I remind you that currently he is the fill in for Paul Harvey on ABC radio, can be seen almost at any hour of the day on TNT reruns of Law and Order, and is the former Senator to the north of Georgia – of course he’s doing well in a poll.

    However, I expect when the record shakes out and people find out more information about Thompson’s time as a Washington lobbyist that those poll numbers will begin to fade.

    And in defense of Tommy Thompson, he gets 6% in Iowa.

    Bull Moose;

    National polls are worthless.

    If this is a marathon, McCain is a runner who is falling behind at a rapid rate. He started out as the pre-race favorite and should be winning, but has not performed as well as he should have, especially with such mediocre competition.

    Your analogy stands.

  9. Bull Moose says:

    A strong runner conserves his energy for the final sprint — which isn’t until winter 2008.

  10. Bull Moose says:

    And by God, what campaign does Robert Novak work for? He has a beef against McCain worse than some of you on this site.

    Heck, in his latest newsletter, old man Novak attacks McCain for trying to raise money!

    Good night shall we be so outraged that a Presidential candidate tries to raise money!

  11. Tommy_a2b says:

    Jeff Emanuel- Ron Paul won’t drop because the libertarians would kill him. He has a set base, small as it is, and I think he stays in for that reason.

    BTW- Bull can we stop using, “It’s a marathon not a sprint.” after reading it everyday from you I almost dream about old man McCain dying at the end of running a real marathon. PLEASEEEEEE, I’M BEGGING!!!!

  12. Bull Moose says:

    Look Rugby Man, it’s a four man race for the White House on the GOP side — John McCain, Fred Thompson, Rudy Guiliani, and Mitt Romney.

    Depending on the poll, McCain and Rudy are tied for first. In others, Thompson and McCain are tied for third. So, if you say McCain has fallen behind so badly and then site Thompson’s strength at third, you are also attacking your candidate as well.

    Yes, that’s the logic used by the selective thinkers!

    Tommy — YOU MADE ME spit my food laughing!

    We are in the pre-election phase on the road to the White House and there are going to be bumps along the way for all the candidates. But, I’m confident my candidate, John McCain, is built for long haul success.

  13. rugby_fan says:

    I said Thompson was doing well?

    McCain should be leading this pack of pathetic candidates and leading handily.

    The fact that he isn’t speaks volumes about his current bid for presidency.

    The man who ran against Bush (when he was a good candidate) and was competitive is hoping his experience will count for something.
