Nice Real World Poll for McCain
Although the media have been trying to sell the idea of a McCain collapse, this poll
suggests strongly otherwise:
The candidates can be grouped as follows:
I. Very well-liked candidates with high favorable to unfavorable ratios of more than two to one:
* Rudy Giuliani
* Barack Obama
* John McCain
In fact McCain has a huge net positive rating compared to (say) Hillary Clinton. I happen to be one of those folks who think that Giuliani and Obama's high positives represent a ceiling, while McCain's represent a floor.
The better news for McCain lies in the other ratings. Mitt Romney barely comes out a positive (23-19) among those who are familiar with him, while Newt Gingrich gets a horrific -20 (29-49). If you want to know why he's not in the race, that's your answer.
