Hillary Clinton Vs. Condi Rice
Most voters now say there's no way they'd vote for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton if she runs for president in 2008 - while just 16 percent are firmly in her camp, a stunning new poll shows.We’d like to see Condi Rice run for President, although she probably won’t. Still it’s good to see Secretary of State Rice is more popular than Senator Clinton.
CNNGALLUP found that 51 percent say they definitely won't vote for Clinton (D-N.Y.) in 2008, another 32 percent might consider it, and only 16 percent vow to back her. That means committed anti-Hillary voters outnumber pro-Hillary voters by 3-1. The poll suggests she can forget about crossover votes - 90 percent of Republicans and 75 percent of conservatives say there's no way they'd back her.
Meanwhile, 46% said they would oppose Secretary of State Rice if she ran for President - a step Rice has repeatedly said she won't take.
Update - Riehl World View: Okay, now ask yourself, this is stunning and shocking as compared to what, exactly?
Was there another recent legitimate poll done showing her as a shoe in I missed? Has there been anything other than some MSM talking heads who perhaps love to coo over Hillary's political potential telling us anything contrary to this poll? If so, I'm unaware of it.
