The Uncivil War Begins to Mount Casualties
Posted by Ryan on March 26, 2008
This report from the Gallup organization has to have McCain feeling pretty good today, and also shows how the Uncivil War is doing potentially lasting damage to the Democrats. According to the article, 19% of Obama supporters would desert and vote for McCain if She Who Must Not be Named were nominated, while 28% of SWMNBN supporters would likewise vote for McCain instead of the Empty Suit.
While it’s still too early to put a lot of importance behind these kinds of polls in regards to the Fall Campaign, it does indicate a lack of tolerance building between the Lying-Shrill One and the Empty Suit amongst different factions in the Democrat Party. I don’t think that 28% of any Democrat’s supporters are going to flock to McCain in the Fall, but staying home or throwing one’s vote away on Nader would still do the trick in some important states.
