New Zogby Poll: McCain Bests Clinton, Obama in Three Way With Nader

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 15, 2008

God Bless Ralph Nader!

  1. 45% John McCain
  2. 39% Hillary Clinton
  3. 6% Ralph Nader
  1. 44% John McCain
  2. 39% Barack Obama
  3. 5% Ralph Nader

The introduction of long-time activist Ralph Nader into the mix is having an effect on the race, as he wins enough support to make a difference, the poll shows. Nader entered the race recently, charging that there is little difference between the Republican and Democratic parties and their presidential candidates. Using the same argument eight years ago, his presence on the ballot in Florida may well have tipped the presidential election away from Democrat Al Gore and in favor of George W. Bush. His run four years ago yielded less dramatic results, but the political atmosphere has changed since 2004, and may be more favorable for him again, the Zogby survey shows.

In the McCain-Clinton-Nader match-up, McCain leads mainly because of a significant advantage among independents. Among those voters, he wins support from 45%, compared to 28% for Clinton and 15% for Nader. McCain wins 79% support from Republicans, while Clinton wins 75% support from Democrats.

Clinton leads only among those voters under age 30, while McCain leads among all voters over age 30. Nader also does well among the young, winning 12% support among those under age 30. Among men, McCain leads 51% to 33% for Clinton. Among women, Clinton leads, 45% to 40% for McCain. Nader wins 8% among men and 3% among women.
Nader also does particularly well as a third-party candidate among progressives, winning 15% support from the group that would very likely otherwise go to Clinton were he not in the race. At the other end of the ideological scale, he wins 12% among libertarians. He also wins 6% support among both conservatives and liberals.

And it can only get better the longer Clinton and Obama sling mud at each other!

Why Democrats Need A Brokered Convention

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 15, 2008

Politicos have scandalously short memories. In their rush to the left, both Hillary and Obama and their respective campaigns seem to be forgetting the lessons of Bill Clinton. President Clinton’s DLCification of the Democratic Party is largely responsible for the lock that Democrats now have on big states with large urban centers in presidential elections. Before 1992, states like California, Illinois, and New Jersey were actually competitive. Bill Clinton, by moderating the party on fiscal issues, made it safe for secular white collar professionals, who dominate the urban and suburban areas of what we now call blue states, to vote Democratic without worrying about the economic sky falling.

In attacking free trade, in showing little or no interest in balancing the budget, and in competing to see who can some up with the leftmost plan for tax hikes and universal health care, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are currently pissing away the Democratic gains made by the husband of the former over the past fifteen years. Democrats claim that such a message is necessary due to tough economic times and the strains of globalization. But again, 1992 refutes that claim. In 1992, Bill Clinton ran in a similar economic environment on a pro-trade, fiscally conservative platform that felt people’s pain but acknowledged that growth, not populism, was the way out of that pain. In so doing, Clinton bested both the hapless Bush 41, who seemed unable to feel anyone’s pain, and the apocalyptic prophet Ross Perot, who is the true precursor to the doom and gloom of Hillary and Barack. If either is nominated in Denver, the Democrats will have officially repudiated Clintonism for the first time since 1988.

Commentary

It has been lovely to see Hillary Rodham Clinton (HRC) and Barack Hussein Obama (BHO) at each other’s throats for the past few weeks.

This is, I believe, a side effect from the nutroots of the progressive blogosphere. Their influence is not rooted in reality…and HRC and BHO have been chasing the attentions of a scant portion of their party. The smart move would have been to the right of McCain.

I have Republican friends in Pennsylvania who look forward to voting for HRC just to prolong the battle in a “Rush the Vote” effort. Who knows, I may be able to do the same here in North Carolina. The last day to register to vote is April 11th. I may change my affiliation just to vote for her!

Just wow!

More Excerpts of Barack Obama’s pastor in the Pulpit

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 15, 2008

First, be warned that his Pastor uses profanity and blasphemous speech during his church services.

Where are the lefties now on their holy doctrine of “separation of church and state”? (Cricket, Cricket)

Here is a passage from Obama’s book, The Dreams of My Father, where he praises the racist ideology of his Spiritual Adviser:

“It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year, where white folks’ greed runs a world in need, apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere…That’s the world! On which hope sits!”

And so it went, a meditation on a fallen world. While the boys next to me doodled on their church bulletin, Reverend Wright spoke of Sharpsville and Hiroshima, the callousness of policy makers in the White House and in the State House. As the sermon unfolded, though, the stories of strife became more prosaic, the pain more immediate. The reverend spoke of the hardship that the congregation would face tomorrow…
