Hillary Vs. the GOP


A new Zogby poll of 9,355 people shows that if the presidential election were held today, Hillary Clinton would lose to any of the five of the GOP candidates included in the poll. Shrillary, who is still the Democratic front-runner despite a series of screwups, trailed Rudy Guiliani, Mitt Romney, Fred Thompson, John McCain, and Mike Huckabee by 3-5%. In July, the same poll had her leading the pack (with the exception of Huckabee, who wasn't included). Sorry Ron Paul fans, he wasn't included in either poll. As scary as a potential of a President Ratched is, this poll is encouraging. However, Edwards and Barack Hussein Obama would probably fare better than Hillary in the general election.

if you want to be, you know, fair and balanced, perhaps you should also mention a Gallup poll which found the opposite:

Or mention that Zogby online polls are considering unreliable by professional pollsters.

and, obama's middle name is a red herring, but does smack of racism as it seems to imply that he has middle eastern connections.

I've never intended to be "fair and balanced." There are plenty of other places to find the opposing view point: CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, NPR, just to name a few. The Zogby poll is considered unreliable by some, competing professional pollsters. I'm not trying to imply that Obama has middle eastern connections. I'm trying to imply that he has Muslim connections. Which he does. His father was a Muslim and his step father raised him as a Muslim in Indonesia. In the interest of fair balance, he claims to be a Christian, but does not believe in hell and believes there are many paths to the same place.
