More Americans Would Definitely Vote for Rudy Than McCain
A new CNN poll shows more good news for the Mayor. When asked who Americans would definitely vote for and against in 2008, Rudy scored the highest positive score of any Republicans and had the lowest negative vote of any candidate, period.
Regarding potential Democratic candidates, 47 percent of respondents said they would "definitely vote against" both Clinton, the junior senator from New York who is running for re-election this year, and Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, the party's candidate in 2004.
Forty-eight percent said the same of former Vice President Al Gore, who has repeatedly denied he intends to run again for president.
Among the Republicans, Sen. John McCain of Arizona and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani fared better than the Democrats, and Florida Gov. Jeb Bush fared worse.
Only 30 percent said they would "definitely vote against" Giuliani; 34 percent said that of McCain.
Here were the positives:
Among all choices, Clinton had the highest positive number; of those polled, 22 percent said they would "definitely vote for" her.
Giuliani was next with 19 percent, followed by Gore with 17 percent, Kerry with 14 percent, McCain with 12 percent and Bush at 9 percent.
Despite all this, I expect Chuck Todd to continue to raving about how all's well in McCainsville.
