McCain Still Polls Best Against Hillary
This poll is a little dated (middle of the month), but it highlights a trend we've seen often in the past, with John McCain outperforming
the rest of his Republican rivals against Hillary Clinton.
The latest Rasmussen Reports survey shows Clinton with just a single point edge over McCain, 44% to 43%.
McCain also trailed Clinton by just one percentage point in September and by two points in August. Those consistent results put McCain in a more competitive position at this time than any other Republican hopeful.
The new survey shows Clinton with a 47% to 41% lead over former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. Clinton has led Romney every time we’ve polled this match-up. In September, she had a nine-point advantage.
Clinton currently leads former NYC mayor and Republican frontrunner Rudy Giuliani by seven and former Senator Fred Thompson by 15. Her lead has been growing steadily over these two in recent months.
But of course, some Republicans don't care about beating Hillary; they'd rather lose gloriously.
