    Poll's have Hillary at all time High !

    Every week brings a new series of polls - some good, some bad - and always revealing, as different elements of what Americans are thinking get captured.

    A USA Today/Gallup poll that came out in the last week had Hillary's favorable at an all-time high of 58/40 - which, by the way, is higher than any recent winning presidential candidate on Election Day. It also had her increasing her vote share in the Democratic primary from 29 to 40 percent, with her opponents showing little movement.

    This poll - like just about every poll - has the horserace for president at a statistical tie or better. When people ask me, "Can she win?," I tell them she is already winning in the polls. Going forward, we may have many twists and turns - but Hillary has already shown that just by getting in, she is well positioned to win. And, as she says, she is battle-tested, and knows how the Republicans think and how to beat them.

    Three other points worth noting from recent polls:

    The sentiment that Hillary won't win is dropping fast - down from 71 percent to 51 percent in just a few short weeks. This is an argument that is rapidly falling away as people see her.
    Belief that America is ready for the first woman president is rising, from barely a majority this time last year (CBS / New York Times, Jan 06) to fully 2/3 of Americans today (Times Union / Siena, Feb 07).
    And finally, it is important to distinguish all the hoopla around this election from who is gaining ground. The press always wants to make a race, and they have been giving all the campaigns a lot of publicity. And buzz always circles around. In poll after poll, Hillary has moved up, and either maintained or widened her lead. In Gallup she went up from 29 to 40, and in a new WNBC/Marist poll her 21 point lead became a 20 point lead in the primary to the next potential opponent. She is scoring the most points with those who count the most: the voters. Of course there will be a lot of ups and downs through this process, but for now, you have to ask for her opponents, "Where's the bump?"

    That was silly.
    Sample groups are notorious for inaccurate polls. This is way to early to be picking a winner in a race that won't be decided until 2008. Who cares who is leading today? If they are 'leading' at the convention then it's time to call it a done deal and not before.
    Unbunch your panties and find another silly topic.

    They sure aren't polling this Form.

    "I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution."

    I really don't find it silly at all, I find it encouraging, there was so many nay- sayers
    but those voices are being silenced by distant shouts of Victory. The mid-terms set the tone, and now that tone will carry us all the way to the history books as well as the 1600 Pennsyvania ave.

    I beleive that the only people who find the polls "inaccurate" are the ones who don't want to see the results fall in favor of the other side. Its going to be a long time till my "panties are bunched" again, at least 5 years anyway...

    I hope the best man wins as the saying goes. If that is Hillary then we will be stuck with her/him just as you are with GWB. I will hazard a guess that there will be a great deal less complaining about that outcome from conservatives then there has been complaining and/or crowing from the liberals over currant situations.

    Even a well built, expensive Fluke irony meter has a short life in this forum.

    Damn Rob your just as inane now as you were when you left maybe even more so. Who are you trying to kid with this harley stuff your to fat and short to ride a harley.

    Hillary doesn't have a chance she won't win the primary let alone the general election. She it is a pure socialist and the people regardless of political affiliation will not stand for a socialist in power.
