Hillary Leads Condi in 2008 Match-Up

February 12, 2005--In a very early look at the 2008 Presidential Election, Senator Hillary Clinton leads Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice 47% to 40%. At the same time, Secretary Rice leads Senator John Kerry 45% to 43%.

The survey was conducted January 29-30, before Dr. Rice's first international tour as Secretary of State. Since the survey was taken, Americans have grown more optimistic about the situation in Iraq.

Fifty-one percent (51%) of voters believe that Senator Clinton is politically liberal while 27% say she is a moderate. For Senator Kerry, 46% said liberal and 31% moderate.

Secretary of State Rice is viewed as conservative by 43% and moderate by 28%.

Among married Americans, Rice has a very slight lead over Clinton. However, the New York Senator leads 55% to 32% among those who are not married.

Rice leads among Investors, 50% to 40% while Clinton leads among non-Investors 53% to 30%.

In a match-up with Senator Kerry, Rice does better among men than among women.

These numbers make no sense at all. I do not believe that Hillary is that much more popular than Kerry, especially since they also show that Hillary is perceived as far more liberal.

Besides that:

1-any polls at this point are about as useful as the results from ATFFL's method with his dog.
2-There is as a better chance of me renouncing socialism and expressing support for Bush than that matchup happening, so it's a completely moot point.

The most recent Gallup poll had Hillary leading the Dem field 40% to 25% for Kerry.   Liberal or not, she didn't lose the last election--Kerry did.  That makes Hillary the fresh face of the Party.   At this stage of the game, name recognition has more to do with who leads the polls then anything else.  Given that, Condi is doing surprisingly well.

Hillary is by no means my prefered choice of Democratic candidate come 2008. She may be moving to the centre - but what about her record?

Nevertheless, she seems to be the early front runner and she does have a high profile. Should she win the Democratic endorsement in 2008, she will have my support

Should Hillary govern competently as Bill did (the Lewinsky business don't even come into the equation), he still did a good job as president, then I think the US could do a hell of a lot worse

I love polls that show how people who won't be the nominees do.
