Clinton Vs. McCain

We know how most of Vassar would vote this November.

A new poll though suggests that Clinton now has a better chance of beating McCain than Obama does.

It's worth checking out.

UPDATE: Thanks for all of the comments. Keep them coming.

The reason we put this up is not necessarily because we are endorsing the Senator Clinton, but because this poll shows a change from previous projections. Back in February, a Time poll put Obama as having a slightly larger chance of beating McCain than Clinton did. Now that seems to no longer be the case.

she looks effing manic in the picture in the article.

also, i hate when people try to play the odds with their votes. vote for the candidate you think would make the best president.

There was an interesting op-ed in the Times recently talking about the fact that over 200,000 registered Republicans in Pennsylvania went to the polls to vote against McCain, months after he was declared the nominee. The Republican party may be counting on votes they won't ultimately get in November. Let' just keep our fingers crossed that the Democratic nominee doesn't fuck things up badly enough in the next five months to get us four more years of Bush economic and foreign policy.

Judging someone by mere appearance is puerile. I think that the primary concern (no pun intended) of many voters is getting a Dem in the White House, which can include "playing the odds". Not the ideal voting situation, but whoever the nominee is will be a hell of a lot better than McCain.

Zack--I'm from PA and went home to vote (Democratic, of course). I was surprised to see that Mike Huckabee was still on the ballot. Weird.

9:46, feel free to stay. Ron Paul should have been the Republican nominee.

mads--i can't blame you for having an opinion, but i do blame you when it affects your ability to report the news. obama was shown to have a better shot against mccain in numerous polls for about two months, and i didn't see much about it on here. this is some pretty blatant cherry picking of information.

still though, every democrat should start realizing that we do not want mccain as our next president. yeah he's a war hero and seems like a good guy-- but hes socially prehistoric and has admitted to knowing "next to nothing" about the economy. between clinton and an iran invasion, i choose clinton.

Um, isn't it kind of stupid to bash Mads for expressing his opinion on his own blog?

i think mads posted it because it's such a change in the tides, and it's worth noting no matter who you support. this poll is newsworthy everywhere

yeah, well, when Obama takes the lead again, we probably won't see Mads post it. Well actually, now we probably will, because after this discussion he'll look like a dickhead if he doesn't

UGH. Mads can post about whatever the eff he wants! There's no rule that he has to be impartial on his own blog. He's not trying to be anyone's only source for national politics.

Gah. Your politics make me cry, Mads.

I think the important thing here is that the DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE will have a better chance at beating McCain. Right now the Dem vote is divided, and it needs to end. As of right now, Obama has won more states and more delegates than Clinton.

Ugh.
