Are there any polls that factor in Nader?
I think Nader said he would consider running if Hillary got the nod. I would like to see how the top Dems fair vs. Repugs in a poll with Nader factored into the race.

1. There are no polls big enough
to include his massive ego.

2. Nader loves to guarantee one thing...
and that's Republicans winning.

4. I'm not so sure...
Especially, if it comes down to Hillary vs. The Ghoul.

First, NY is not is sure thing for Hillary. The Ghoul will be competitive here.

Second, a lot of progressive Dems would be turned off by Hillary enough to vote for Nader or a 3rd party candidate.

10. The sponsors are also from Democrat leaning areas...
If the poll was done in Corning, Jamestown, Utica, Watertown, etc. I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see The Ghoul come out ahead.

11. The Poll Was For The Entire State
I also think HRC won nearly all NY counties in 06 including many that went for Bush* in 04...

12. Cool... poll does include all of NY
The Repugs basically conceded the race as they didn't run a competitive candidate (John Spencer). In fact, Spencer received no help to speak of from the national Repugs.

In fact, it is kind of troubling that he got 31% of the vote. If memory serves, he won 3-5 counties.

To contrast this, Clinton's 2006 margin did not quite equal the percentage received by Eliot Spitzer in the concurrent gubernatorial race (69%-29%) nor by Charles Schumer in his 2004 Senate re-election campaign (71%-24%), both of which had also been against little-known Republican opponents.

14. Here you go:

and while Nader and/or Greens might run against Clinton, they might run against Kucinich too. Greens worked to defeat Lamont in CT and Wellstone in MN, so they will work to defeat any Democrat.
