The McCain Juggernaut?
Wow. Back in July, when it came time for positive news about John McCain's campaign for the presidency, it was pretty slim pickings. Now it almost seems like it's hard to choose which one to lead with.
McCain's now the #1 pick to win the nomination in the InTrade political markets
McCain is the only candidate with above a 50% favorability rating. And yes, he has the highest favorables among conservatives
Of course, entering the Primary season, it may be that opinions within the partisan ranks matter more than the overall numbers. McCain is viewed favorably by 66% of Republican voters nationwide, Thompson and Giuliani are viewed favorably by 65%, Romney by 57%, and Huckabee by 55%.
RCP's average of several polls now shows McCain leading Romney
in New Hampshire.
Fred Thompson may drop out
if he does not finish highly tonight and back McCain. This will clearly help things further for McCain in New Hampshire.
