Democrat Armageddon

Guess what? All Hillary's posturing is NOT paying off! Polls pitting her against McCain in 08 don't look good.

Hillary vs McCain 52%-36%, McCain's favor
Hillary vs. Generic GOP 41%-39%, Hillary's Favor
McCain vs. Generic Dem 36%-29%, McCain's Favor

2 Lessons:

1) Hillary barely beats Generic GOP, within MARGIN OF ERROR! Not good at all. The Republicans could go with McCain or someone obscure and probably win.

2) Democrats actually would fare better against McCain if they ran an obscure (MARK WARNER!) than if they ran Hillary.

Bottom Line: Hillary is bad for the Dems. And if Republicans ended up choosing McCain they'd likely take the White House in a landslide.

H/t: Kaus!
