42% of Dems Say Hillary Strongest Candidate for 2008
Rasmussen Reports ^ | November 22, 2004

Posted on 11/23/2004 12:01:41 PM PST by RWR8189

Forty-two percent (42%) of Democrats say New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton would be the party's strongest Presidential candidate in 2008. A Rasmussen Reports survey found that 16% think 2004 nominee John Kerry would be the best bet for Democrats in the next Presidential contest. Thirteen percent (13%) named Kerry's running mate, John Edwards.

Among unaffiliated voters, 27% named Senator Clinton as the Democrats' strongest candidate. Sixteen percent (16%) named Senator Edwards and 10% Senator Kerry.

No other candidate reached double digits among Democrats or unaffiliated voters in the Rasmussen Reports survey. None of the three "Red State" candidates reached 5%. Those potential candidates were Evan Bayh from Indiana, Bill Richardson from New Mexico, and Mark Warner from Virgina.

Senator Clinton is seen most positively by liberal voters. Thirty-nine percent (39%) of liberals believe she is the Democrats' best bet.

The support for Senator Clinton may create a conflict with another perception of Democratic voters--51% of the nation's Democrats say it would be best for their party to nominate a more centrist candidate in 2008.

Who cares what they say, they're never correct.

P.S. What the heck is this whole "Ping" thing I keep seeing? Someone held a simpleton please.

Nominating Hillary is like a suicidal person actually stepping out onto the ledge in front of a crowd. They've given up and they want people to pay attention to their suicide and recognize their trauma.

I say 'jump'.

That has got to be some of the best news I've ever heard!! Hitlary is nearly universally hated by married women and even many single women with children don't trust her! If Hitary's the best they've got, the DemonRats may cease to exist as a party!

That is an ALMOST GUARANTEED REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL WIN!!!

Excellent. The Democrats lost big when they ran a Northeastern Liberal in 2004. I say let 'em repeat the same mistake for 2008!

Senator Clinton is seen most positively by liberal voters.

Perfect! Please, please, please let this be true and let ole' stinky run for the nomination.
