The Uncivil War Begins to Mount Casualties

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.

From an outsider’s point of view, a slightly ‘wobbly’ McCain is looking a great bet to win. Let’s hope the dems keep squabbling!

I know McCain is not as hard right as some Republicans would like (hence the ‘wobbly’), but he does look a potentially good president, and FAR better than anyone on the other side of the fence.

As for Nader! Now that’s a waste of space! I remember reading Unsafe At Any Speed when it first came out (yes I’m THAT OLD). While it made many valid points about car safety, some of the ‘tests’ were so rigged as to be laughable. Talk about engineering the results to match your previously set agenda.
