Many Obama And Clinton Voters Refuse To Vote For The Other

This looks good for McCain (Gallup)

A sizable proportion of Democrats would vote for John McCain next November if he is matched against the candidate they do not support for the Democratic nomination. This is particularly true for Hillary Clinton supporters, more than a quarter of whom currently say they would vote for McCain if Barack Obama is the Democratic nominee.

….But only 59% of Democratic voters who support Clinton say they would vote for Obama against McCain, while 28% say they would vote for the Republican McCain. This suggests that some Clinton supporters are so strongly opposed to Obama (or so loyal to Clinton) that they would go so far as to vote for the “other” party’s candidate next November if Obama is the Democratic nominee.

….Seventy-two percent of those who support Obama for the party’s nomination would vote for Clinton against McCain, while 19% would desert and vote for the Republican.

Granted, it is only March 26th, and it is a long time to go before the Primary, but, we are continuing to see the meltdown in the Democrat Party, and not just withing the Nutroots. Hillary is not planning on dropping out, despite many Democrats hoping for that, and will certainly take it all the way to the Democrat convention, during which I certainly hope the Colorado National Guard is ready.

A lot can change, though. Remember, it was just a few short months ago that the media and the Democrats were talking about how the Republican Party was toast, due to the fighting between Romney, Huckabee, Paul, and Fred. McCain was out of it. Yet, McCain fought back, things calmed down, and we are doing fine. While it is certainly easy to see the national GOP go idiot, I doubt McCain will go soft. He is too seasoned, too principled, and, after being thought dead in the race for the GOP convention, yet, with the fight back, he will not give that up.

    I don’t put much stock in that report. I was saying the same thing 2-3 months ago when McCain was taking down what I considered to be the best candidate(s) in Thompson and Romney. While I still don’t quite trust McCain, I have resigned myself to the fact that he is the nominee and I will NEVER pull a lever for a Lib in a general election if I can at all help it. There are times I am forced to in state and local elections when that is all I have to choose from, but that is another story. I suspect that when all is said and done, the Libs care more about being in power than for their “Principles”. face it, the only difference between Hank Clinton and the Obamessiah is the that one is a chick (allegedly) and the other is a black man.

  4. I think McCain will do ok, as long as he doesn’t lose his legendary temper. Hopefully.

    You are right, MBP, the libs only care about power. They have no principles but one: abortion on demand.
