Democrats Aren't Electable

It is official, we're screwed again. Hello, EU Citizenship!

McCain can beat Obama and Hillary according to the new poll that was released today. This is what I have been saying in discussions that I have been having over the last few weeks. A lot of people, misguided as they may be, really like John McCain.

McCain is statistically tied with Sen. Barack Obama, 44 percent to 42 percent, and ahead of Sen. Hillary Clinton by 6 points, 46 percent to 40 percent.  The poll's margin of error was plus-or-minus 3 percentage points.

The poll also showed McCain with a 61 percent approval rating, a number higher than both Clinton's and Obama's in past polls.

Never mind that fact that he is not pro-choice, was involved in an anti-gay amendment in Arizona and wants to be in Iraq for 100 years. Do you remember his bomb Iraq story from this summer?

McCain is popular in my state. But, I believe the religous right will NOT vote for him becaue he is not "conservative enough" just to make a point. I'm hoping that Barrack Obama picks a strong running mate and that they can do a hard press ad campaign that will help divide the red voters and hold on to the blue voters : )

It's definitely time to enroll in that French course.

It is still too early to even look at these polls. Obama has a history in Illinois and in the primaries now of gaining momentum. He has proven his cool under attack, too. McCain will lose his over time. Plus, the surge is not REALLY accomplishing anything and can't last anyway. The economy is tanking. Be patient and don't dust off your passport just yet.

McCain can beat Obama and Hillary...

I think that poll went on to say, "...with his hands tied behind his back and one eye closed...nyah, nyah!"

This was just one of many polls pitting Obama or Hillary against McCain. Here is a link of many polls showing Obama's chances. As a democrat would support either, but being a current Obama advocate I haven't yet done my research with Hillary. I do believe he has a better chance, but that is only one of many the reasons he is getting my vote. I find no reason to distress over his chances at all, and in you initial post I'd like to point out that McCain's lead is well in the margin of error. While these polls likely do not yet mean much, I admit they are intriguing to look through. It is, on the other hand, quite too soon and unreasonable to give up!

Don't have a link (I think you can find it at Salon.com), but a newer poll has Obama up on McDubya by 12 and Hillary up on him by 6. No way St. Sleeps With Lobbyists occupies the White House in '09.

Or ever.
