NEW YORK, Oct 05, 2008 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Hillary Clinton would beat Sarah Palin head-to-head by a 2-to-1 margin if the 2012 presidential election were held today, according to women voters.
A national telephone survey of 600 registered women voters was conducted by Blum & Weprin from September 25 through October 3, 2008. The poll, commissioned by SheZoom.com, a new women's internet media company, is titled 'Palin vs. Clinton - You Decide.' The survey (with a margin of error of +/- 4 percentage points) queried women in all 50 states on their personal and political preferences pertaining to the two female party leaders.
The poll asks questions relating to presidential responsibilities, as well as personality and "values" questions important to female voters. For all areas, the survey shows Clinton with broad-based support, including the "values" questions, such as "Whom do you trust?"; "Who's a better role model?"; and "Who's been a better mother?" On all these issues, Clinton wins by at least 10 points. [NB: The poll's results did not shift in any significant way following Thursday's vice presidential debate.]

Bring it on--- "Wrinkles vs Winkles" in 2012!
not in my world.....not a chance....Sarah is the real deal!
600 registered women voters....(in New York)
things that make you go hmmmmmmm
I don’t know any women who are interested in voting for Hillary.
in 2012 Palin will be more experienced and Hillary would be very retro.
Clinton is going to look like a old bucket of bolts by 2012. The only thing more rusty by then will be her tired old warn out policies.
Palin will have matured by then. Hillary thought she was going to represent the party this time. My guess is she may not even get the nod in 2012.
Market watch, in this environment you have nothing better to do than address a possible race in 2012?
And a lot of those Hillary supporters will nevertheless vote for McCain/Palin this time, because they like that much better than BHO, who shat all over ‘their’ candidate.
2012, they may go back to their candidate, but that’s then. Got an election this year first.
By 2012 Clinton is going to be one of those “What were we THINKING?” “sure bets”. Her moment has passed, and the Dems foolishly voted instead for someone who’s never managed a 7-11 to be in control of the most powerful nation on earth.
It’s true that Palin does better with men than women. During the debate, Men reacted more favorably.
They must think Obama is a gonner by then, right?
It will depend how McCain’s four years go. It would be stunning if Republican’s can hold the White House for 16 years. That will be difficult, but it will be totally up to McCain.
Well, I don’t mind that. I say let them vote in droves for McCain/Palin.
Could this be the new line of pity the MSM will take WHEN McCain/Palin beat 0bama. That and racism.
Lets stay in 2008 till after 11/4/08?!?!
VPP will be there as PP!!
If hillary was the nominee the election would be over but they had their chance and blew it.
there is no do over. if Obama loses, she’ll still have to deal with the black vote, the youths and moveon crowd who will accuse her of sabotaging Obama’s campaign
An “internet media company”.
Most of these polls tell you more about who their readership is than it does about the candidates or the mood of America.
It is also true that men are more Republican than women. The real question is whether Palin can help McCain narrow or even erase this gap, especially with Republican and Independent women. The early indications are promising.
Son of a gun, they’ve got the 2008 election all sewn up and are working on 2012 already.
Yeah, but what if Hitler had B-52’s?
Who do you think the majority of men would vote for? 'Nuff said.
