POLL: Rasmussen Democratic Primary


A new Rasmussen Reports automated survey of 769 likely Democratic primary voters (conducted 2/26 through 3/1) finds Sen. Hillary Clinton (at 34%) continuing to lead Sen. Barack Obama (26%) and former Sen. John Edwards (15%) in a national Democratic primary.

This poll reveals a slight bounce for Edwards, the candidate who should be the Democratic nominee and has already been through a national campaign, from the previous Rasmussen Democratic poll. I consider Hillary's poll numbers, much of which is probably based on name recognition, to continue to drop and for the Democratic race to tighten. Who would have thought that, in March 2007, that Giuliani, not McCain, would have a stronger consolidation at the Republican nomination than Hillary for the Democratic one?

Edwards already lost 2 national elections in 3 years. Democrats need to support winners and quit nominating the same old losers over and over again. Edwards needs to withdraw from the race and give NEW democrats a chance to finally WIN a national election.

Edwards was very new to the American public in the 2004 campaign, but did remarkably well. As he has matured and as we have gotten to know him better, I believe that he can win and is the best candidate to begin to unravel the myriad of problems that beset our country. He is intelligent, flexible, diplomatic, can speak well, and has a practical vision for a better future, along with the passion and energy to see his visions through.

It is time for a change and new blood. I am tired of the same old folks. I agree with another posting that Edwars, although a good man, has no shot to win. Clinton I believe will not win at all because the right will bring out all the weapons to see it doesn't happen. I really believe she is her worst enemy. She is fake, plain and simple. After watching her in that church service just made my skin crawl. Obama is a fresh face with a great attitude and vision for America. I just hope America looks past the race issue and push this man as they did Kennedy. I really believe this country will grow to great heights under him and not be under this grid lock we are in now. I really believe he will unify the nation. Clinton will further divide it. It's time for a change. And to the Edwards Family, my prayers and God's speed!
