Yahoo! News The latest Associated Press-Ipsos poll found that nearly a quarter of Republicans are unwilling to back top-tier hopefuls Rudy Giuliani, Fred Thompson, John McCain or Mitt Romney, and no one candidate has emerged as the clear front-runner among Christian evangelicals. Such dissatisfaction underscores the volatility of the 2008 GOP nomination fight.
Or maybe we are just not concerned in 2007 about who will be elected in 2008 and take office in 2009,In sharp contrast, the Democratic race remains static, with Hillary Rodham Clinton holding a sizable lead over Barack Obama. The New York senator, who is white, also outpaces her Illinois counterpart, who is black, among black and Hispanic Democrats, according to a combined sample of two months of polls.
So Obama should just drop out?A half year before voting begins, the survey shows the White House race is far more wide open on the Republican side than on the Democratic. The uneven enthusiasm about the fields also is reflected in fundraising in which Democrats outraised Republicans $80 million to $50 million from April through June, continuing a trend from the year's first three months.
Republicans are saving their money until it really matters. Probably investing it so that it grows more money."Democrats are reasonably comfortable with the range of choices. The Democratic attitude is that three or four of these guys would be fine,"
But the top leader is not a guy, and it a girl with a lot of baggage. The only reason for wanting her back in the White House is she might bring back some of the stuff she stole when she left the first time.
Most of both fields are filled with senators and former senators, with a former mayor thrown in. They don't have a clue about what it takes to run the country. And the only former governors are very far behind the back in both races.
