New Rasmussen Numbers for 2008 Race

Posted by Thunder Pig on December 6, 2007

These numbers are surprising, on both sides:

GOP:

1 Mike Huckabee 21%
2 Rudy Giuliani 18%
3 Mitt Romney 12%
4 Fred Thompson 11%
5 John McCain 11%
6 Ron Paul 8%

Huckabee sure has surged in the past few weeks hasn’t he? And what is up with Ron Paul? If he makes the 15% mark…I’ll be seriously concerned, because then he would be in a position to pick up some of the supporters of the other candidates (especially if they distrust the current leaders of the pack) as they drop out.

Dems:

1 Hillary Clinton 31%
2 Barack Obama 26%
3 John Edwards 15%
4 Bill Richardson 6%

I sure hope Obama doesn’t catch Hillary, because I think she’ll be the easiest for the GOP to defeat between her and Obama. I used to fear Edwards being nominated; these numbers look like he is pretty well toast.

**update**12.32pm I was remiss in not including this information on the poll:

This survey includes approximately 750-800 Likely Democratic Primary Voters and 600-650 Likely Republican Primary Voters. Margin of sampling error for each is +/- 4 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
