41% of Republicans find McCain unacceptable as GOP nominee in '08
But, interestingly, Rudy Giuliani is found not acceptable by only 25% of his party. Interestingly because Rudy is pro-choice and pro-gay marriage.

Here is the list--first column is percentage acceptable/ second is unacceptable column:

Giuliani: 73/25
Rice: 68-29
McCain: 55-41
Gingrich: 45-50
Jeb Bush: 44-52
Frist: 38-44
Allen: 36-35
Cheney: 34-61
Pataki: 33-51
Romney: 31-42
Huckabee: 17-40
Brownback: 14-43

Here are the Democrats most acceptable/unacceptable (among Democratic voters)
Edwards: 71-25
Clinton: 69-29
Gore: 68-31
Kerry: 59-40
Biden: 44-37
Clark: 42-49
Dean: 40-54
Richardson: 36-38
Daschle: 35-50
Feingold: 29-41
Warner: 29-42
Kucinich: 21-51
Vilsack: 19-47

1. Looks like Edwards could be the "anti-Hillary"
he's got my vote.

2. It depends on the acceptable/unacceptable rating from people
who have the ability to donate major $$$

5. Edwards has taken more trips to Iowa than anyone
He seems to be thinking ahead and laying out the ground work for a successful run. Edwards is VERY electable just because people like him. Every Republican I know really likes Edwards.

Clark/Edwards or Edwards/Clark Both sound great to me!

3. Man, Feingold sure scores low
and Clark with a 49% unaceptable rating. These are strange numbers.

4. It looks pretty heavily weighted towards name recognition

7. Edwards is at the top of my list too.
Mostly b/c he sincerely wants to help the less fortunate in America.

On the repuke side, I can't believe the support for Condi, that's just scary as hell! :scared:
