McCain Leads BOTH Obama and Clinton in National Poll

Posted by Thunder Pig on February 28, 2008

The Mason-Dixon Poll on the numbers for the general election:

  • John McCain 47%
  • Barack Obama 37%
  • John McCain 49%
  • Hillary Clinton 40%

McCain leads Obama 47%-37% and Clinton 49%-40%. The Arizona senator leads the Democrats across the board. About 80% of Republicans are behind McCain. Only 66% of Democrats are behind Obama and 72% are backing Clinton in one-one-one match-ups with McCain. Currently, 17% of Democrats indicate that in a match up with Obama, they’d support McCain; 16% say so in a match up with Clinton. Seventeen percent of Dems also say they are undecided in a match up with Obama; 13% say so with regard to McCain-Clinton. Those numbers though could be a reflection of McCain being the presumptive nominee and Obama and Clinton still engaged in a fight for the nomination.

Commentary

Wow! This confirms my assertions here, and in several forums that Obama will be easier to defeat than Hillary.
