Yahoo !!!

Democrat 52%
Republican 31%


"If the next election for president were held today, and were the Republican candidate and were the Democratic candidate, for whom would you vote?"

Rudy Giuliani 43%
Hillary Clinton 48%

Fred Thompson 31%
Barack Obama 50%

1. It's funny that a generic Democrat always beats a generic Republican.
Edited on Sun Jun-17-07 05:55 PM by Drunken Irishman
Always. It was like that in 2004, 2000, 1996, 1992, 1988...

This tells me that the idealized Democrat is far better than the idealized Republican. Or essentially, it's FDR/Kennedy going up against Reagan in the minds of voters. It's just a shame we have a hard time finding that one Democrat that can be idealized like that in real life.

2. A nice start would be a Democrat who stands up for actual Democratic
principles instead of the usual namby-pamby "centrist" pablum we end up getting stuck with.

3. If they're so great, howcome NEITHER can make the margin?
Neither of them is getting 52% in these match-ups, and this is hardly a representative sample of various pairings. It sounds like each of them isn't as popular as "generic Democrat".

I wonder what it would be like to mix-and-match the top 4 of each party.

Lest we forget, too: this is the Wall Street Journal.

5. Fred Thompson scares me.
Paint him gray and he'd look like that cave troll from Fellowship of the Ring.
