US elections

Public opinion polls for the 2008 election yielded the following results for potential Republican candidates:

(American Polling Research Institute - June 13-16, 2006}

Condoleezza Rice 30%
Rudolph Giuliani 21%
John McCain 20%
Newt Gingrich 8%
Mitt Romney 7%
George Allen 5%
Mike Huckabee 3%
Bill Frist 2%
Unsure 3%
Wouldn't Vote 1%

I notice Romney is still in there with 7% but as long as you have their supporters writing articles like
fighting the name recognition factor
you know they are in trouble. Name recognition is absolutely vital to winning an election it is even more important than actually having policies!

According to the polls the first three could win an election against Hillary and the rest couldn't HOWEVER I would say it is a sound bet that Hillary will finish strongly and McCain and Rice might not fare so well so they could be tight battles. I think Hilary would beat rice in the end at least.

I am pro Rudolph Giuliani for his ability to get thigns done and his (as far as I can tell) socialy liberal positions. I am pro Hilary because it gives me Bill back again - and he did pretty well from an impartial perspective aside from a sex scaldal or two (and who doesn't love a sex scandal?).

So Hillary v Rudy... Let the battle begin!
