1. And least likable -- sorry but the presidential vote is personal
This person will be the "face" of the country and will be in our homes via TV more than almost any other person over the next four years. People don't vote for candidates they just don't like ...

10. No it doesn't
It asks who is the most likeable...

I have two friends...I like one more than t he other...doesn't mean I don't like the other...it's a matter of degree...

The proof of this is that Hillary maintains high approval rating as well...

All presidential candiates are...doesn't mean they aren't sincere as well...

In fact I am glad they are ego driven...means the are self assured...

12. Sure you are happy she is seen as most negative and less able to bring a real change as well.
Personally, if I have to choose where Obama wins in this poll and where Clinton wins, I would take Obama's number.

24. The ego is an illusion.
The more ego-driven a person is, the less enlightened they are.

4. Those numbers are all pretty close, many within MOE.
Edited on Mon Dec-03-07 07:31 PM by calteacherguy
And "most experienced," whatever it means, doens't mean anything. It's vague.

Experienced at failing to get health care reform passed because of her ego-driven, stubborn, self-centered personality perhaps?

Experience at doing the politically expedient thing in voting for an unnecessary war?

Experience in riding her hubby's coattails?

What?

13. Thank you...and most of the rest are close to the MOE.
Not that it means much, people are looking for the most principled and honest candidate.

26. So you agree then that 3 is not most...?
As to your comment...sound like you had it pegged more accurately last month

Sounds to me like the Obama campaign is looking for any sort of excuse they can muster to throw mud at Clinton, frankly.

29. calteacherguy on Hillary's experience in the White House...not too long ago...


They're team players, and Hillary Clinton was an intergral and active member of the Clinton White House. She's also interacted extensively with foreign leaders, and those connnections will be of great benefit in restoring our image abroad. - Calteacherguy

28. Most Socially Progressive should go to Kucinich with Clinton coming last
Most knowledgeable about the world should probably go to Richardson or Biden.

38. that anyone cd think she is the most socially progressive strains credulity
she is simply not even close to that.

Kucinich
Gravel
Edwards
Obama
Richardson
Dodd
Biden
Clinton

the power of obfuscation and smoke and mirrors is all that could account for this.

by Presidential, they must mean her husband was once the President.

Fiscally responsible is all that I'd give her, and I don't absolutely mean that as a compliment.

40. You have it in the right order
Edwards use to be less progressive but I would agree he has moved into the #3 spot.

43. Not sure I'd rank Gravel as highly with his support for a flat income tax...
But other than that, you have the right figures here I think.

46. Hillary: "biggest disappointments"
Edited on Tue Dec-04-07 07:23 AM by progressoid
She topped the list of candidates whose nomination would be one of the biggest disappointments at 27 percent.

I was part of this Register poll. :)
