It’s just nine weeks until voting in the American primaries begins. As of now, Hillary Clinton is sweeping the board. A national poll, just out, has her beating Rudy Guiliani in the general election by eight points. She has a double digit lead in most of the primary states. Only in Iowa are Obama and Edwards still competitive. In South Carolina she is 13 points ahead of Obama among black voters. She is leading among women voters and is catching up among men. In the last quarter she raised $27 million to Obama’s $20 million.
Edwards has to win Iowa or he’s a gonner. Obama probably has to win either Iowa or New Hampshire. Clinton could lose both and her organization is so strong that she could recover to win in the big primaries on February 5.
Can Hillary be stopped? Short of a gargantuan gaffe, it’s difficult to see how.
Would you like to see Hillary become the first woman president of the United States?
If your answer is no, whom would you like to see elected?
Off to Vermont. Back Sunday. Have a great weekend. Neil
