Posted on 12/19/2004 10:00:10 PM PST by vmoney
If the next Presidential Election were held today, 46% of voters would vote for a generic Republican candidate over Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton. A Rasmussen Reports survey found that 39% of voters would cast their ballot for Senator Clinton.
The New York Senator holds a narrow 45% to 42% lead among women, but trails by 17 points among men.
The national telephone survey of 1,500 Likely Voters was conducted by Rasmussen Reports December 3-5, 2004. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
An earlier Rasmussen Reports survey found that 42% of Democrats believe that Senator Clinton is the Democrats' strongest candidate for 2008. Other survey data shows that 51% of Democrats want their next Presidential candidate to be more of a centrist than John Kerry.
Forty-five percent (45%) of voters have a favorable opinion of Senator Clinton while 42% have an unfavorable opinion. The fact that 87% of voters have an opinion about her is remarkably high for a United States Senator.
(Generic fist pump. Generic Republican gives Generic campaign manager generic high-five.)
The headline "Hillary Trails in Polls" made my day.
Never thought Hillary could be much of a poll dancer anyway.
Ha! What did I tell you?
And what's the deal with women? Pathetic. Too much daytime TV.
Don't believe the polls:
Ick! Thanks for that image. Now I have to go scrub my brain.
But this is against a generic Republican. She might actually to better against particular candidates.
-good times, G.J.P.(Jr.)
It didn't include Guliani who will most definately run and win. Rest easy...God won't let another Clinton in office!
No problemo in any election - the RATS will just recount the votes in as many places as necessary until she "wins."
While it is 3.5 years down the road and a lot can happen I'm not as happy s some about the numbers. IMO 39% is the Beast's rock bottom number, her absolute, unshakable core and she is just smarmy enough to collect another 15%, especially if the rep candidate is weak. Again, IMO these numbers are not reassuring.
Hahaha, good one, Phil. You got her number, LOL.
These results conflict with those in the link posted above!
These early polls are wortless, we have no idea what the issues are going to be in 2008. Too many things can happen in 4 years.
But a gun grabbing pro abortion candidate like Guliani would be ok with Him?
And she has already started to try to mine that segment. See my post 17. Her 39% would appear to be a lock They already know plenty about her, would vote for her now and I doubt this segment can b dissuaded.
So George Allen may have a shot after all.
Most slugs leave trails.
Please see my Post 17 above. If these numbers are more accurate/reflective of the electorate at this point I think a lot of work is necessary starting right now. IMO no matter which numbers are more accurate the Beast appears to start out with a solid base, a place from which she can only rise in the absence of any external factors.
I totally agree. This was proved on November 2, 2004.
Although I would never advocate violence(especially gun, as it would feed the liberal mantra), I would hope that H.Clinton would die at the hands of a knife weilding thug, before she coule EVER get a chance at the Presidency!
Or, maybe just die of a heart attack...that would be a good thing.
In case nothing happens to stop her from actually RUNNING for president, I think her actually losing the race would be a great thing in two ways: #1 She actually lost the Presidency..THANK GOD! And, #2 Because she lost (see #1) she would no longer be A SENATOR! Which would mean: THE CLINTON LEGACY IS DEAD!! Until, of course Chelsea can run for office...damn!
Personally, although she is supposed to be a woman (that's debatable at times...okay at all times) I think more women ACTUALLY dislike her, than like her. At least here in the South anyway.
I think women in the blue states worship her and real women (red states) have nothing but contempt for her. The urban libs (lesbos) literally love her. Damn, I hate liberals.
"It didn't include Guliani who will most definately run and win"
This party is unlikely to nominate a pro-choice, anti-gun adulterer. How's he any better than Hillary's hubby?
And, if he is nominated, expect a strong third party challenger. Somebody who isn't afraid to stand up for CONSERVATIVE values like securing the borders, protecting unborn life, and upholding the 2nd Amendment.
There's no better way to put Hillary in office than to nominate Giuliani. The Clintons will "divide and conquer" this party again, just like they did in 1992.
What a shock. We've had 12 years to figure her out...does she really think she can fool us by claiming to love the south and saying she's an "evangelical in her heart". We know what she is in her heart...and it ain't pretty (or American.)

And yes, that picture is the one of Hill kissing Suha Arafat ( "wife" of The Littlest Terrorist ) after Suha had accused the Israelis of poisoning Palestinian children...
I live in the bluest area of the bluest city of the bluest state -- and I detest Hillary. Actually, the people I know who support her are the stupidest people I know.
Guiliani would destroy her.
Stay Prepared and BE Prepared:
Hillary is **Out There** still.
Hillary's Poll Numbers Startling (Early 2008 Poll Numbers)

his Pro-Bush message to the California area.
And Rush Limbaugh won't be able to transmit
his message, or hype the Time Magazine cover either.

(It's always an "airplane," isn't it? ...How convenient for Hillary's Team.)
What would make my day is the headline "Hillary and Bill indicted for multiple murder"
I don't think she could easily fool many anti-immigration types. Her reputation for posturing and machievellian maneuvering are legendary, even among Dems. Dick Morris, for example. However, I wouldn't count her out either. If there is a bad economy and/or one of our wars is going badly, and/or an inept Republican candidate would certainly give her an opening.
If immigration becomes a big issue by '08, I would hope we nominate Tancredo or someone with the same anti-immigration credentials.
Also worth mentioning is that Hillary is actually hated by the hard left, ie. they hate the Clinton's in general for not being total socialists while in power (welfare reform, NAFTA, etc.) So she would have a time of it trying to hold the radical Dem base together while reaching out to centrists and disgruntled conservatives. If she can find just one burning issue and push it and push it.
When will the great Republican hope, the perfect combination of Goldwater/Reagan/and GW, emerge?
Jeez! Didn't we just get DONE with an election? Wow.
Yeah, go ahead you stupid 'RATS. Run ANOTHER FAR
LEFTY LIBERAL! hahahahaaaa!

Is Hillary more centrist than Kerry?
I agree with you. The above quote is not from me.
This is mostly name-recognition.
But numbers this strong against a generic GOP candidate still surprise me a bit. As soon as you name any particular Republican, the generic opponent becomes inevitably weaker vs. Hildebeast. OTOH, the level of hate for the Clintons is very strong in the Red states and Hildy can't win without at least a few of them (hence her newfound concern for illegal immigration).
Still, it's way too early for this to mean anything.
That is the tragedy, they don't have to be intelligent to be allowed to vote.
I will admit that my red/blue comment was too specific so I will add "as a general rule". lol
