New poll by Rassmussen shows who people would never vote for…
Among the leading Presidential candidates, New York Senator Hillary Clinton and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney have the highest level of core opposition among voters. Forty-seven percent (47%) say they will vote against each of these candidates no matter who else is on the ballot.
[…] 42% will definitely vote against Giuliani, 38% against Edwards, 36% against Obama, 34% against Huckabee, 34% against Thompson.
Hillary’s numbers aren’t surprising as they’ve been there since she first announced her intent to run. A lot of people don’t like her and they probably never will…a big reason why Obama is coming on strong.
But this has to be very bad news for Mitt Romney. Why? Because it makes the rise of McCain that much more problematic…
At the opposite end of the spectrum is Arizona Senator John McCain. For the second straight month, McCain finds himself with the smallest level of core opposition–just 33% say they will definitely vote against him. That figure is unchanged from a month ago, down from 39% a two months ago and a peak of 42% in June. These results are just one part of the reason that it is a good time to be John McCain.
McCain has kept his straight talking reputation intact. But does that translate into votes?
