Gore Supporters Least Likely To Go To Clinton?
Gore Still a Factor in New Hampshire

First Read http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2007/07/16/27160... looks at yesterday's Concord Monitor poll and notes some interesting results. "First, check out who benefits the most when Al Gore is taken out of the mix in a Dem primary. With Gore, Clinton's lead over Obama is minimal (27%-23%), with Gore at 14% and Edwards at 10%. Take Gore out and Clinton jumps to 33%, Obama only moves to 25%, and Edwards moves up from 10% to 15%. The CW we believed is that Gore supporters are least likely to go to Clinton. Is the CW wrong? Or is this just a function of name ID?"

A poll last month found that Gore would win New Hampshire.

1. True that ...
At least for me.

I am a Gore supporter and have been since 1998. I will not vote for Hillary.

2. Gore whipped my guy, Bill Bradley, in the 2000 New Hampshire primary.
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 09:17 AM by Old Crusoe
It made me a believer in his ability to roll up his sleeves and get to work. He's got the political acumen necessary to enter the race and win the nomination, definitely. Naturally I wanted Bradley to win and thought New Hampshire would prefer him to Gore in the way it chose Hart over Mondale.

I was wrong.

Gore is still very popular in NH and enjoys a great deal of support, likely enough to upend the whole pack of Democrats in the race right now.

4. I wanted Bradley also.
I will not vote for Hillary. Everyday she sounds more and more like the talking political robot. If Gore doesn't run (which he's already said he's not), I will vote for Biden.

7. On Biden. Bush's many failures domestically are bad enough, but
his foreign policy failures are at least as damaging.

Biden is an expert on foreign policy and has been for some time.

I think he'd make an excellent president.

3. Could be -- The Tesha family falls in that category.

If Gore jumps in, we're for Gore all the way.

With Gore out, Kucinich is next or Richardson if
we get struck by a sudden bolt of pragmatism.

But we're unlikely to vote for Hillary ever. She
simply doesn't stand (as in, both believe in and
vote for) for far too many *BASIC PRINCIPLES* that
we hold far too dear.

9. I will support the Democratic candidate.
Because I understand what it means to have Roberts and Alito on the Supreme Court.

And because I'm not idiot enough to believe that in a representative democracy I can get everything I want if I just worship the right candidate.

10. I think 99% here would agree with you...
The primaries are the time when we can speak or an individual Dem over another. I do believe that when the general comes, then most progressives will support whoever is on the ticket.

6. "Take Gore out and Clinton jumps to 33%" Make that 'Most Likely'
"Take Gore out and Clinton jumps to 33%"
So make that 'Most Likely' to go to Clinton...

The text doesn't support the OP's subject line.
Gore is my first choice. But since he's not running, I support Clinton.

12. It *is* an issue of experience - at the Take Back America Conference -
over and over progressives would say that their heart was with Edwards or Kucinich or... but that they would vote for Hillary because she could hit the ground running.

Gore could hit the ground running just as fast or faster and is way, way, way more my preference than Hillary (this is a D-E-M-O-C-R-A-C-Y not a D-Y-N-A-S-T-Y).

I think many, many Hillary voters would shift to Gore if he announced.
