Pay Attention to These Polls!

Hatched by Dafydd

Remember earlier this month, when we warned you to Ignore This Poll? Well that's still good advice; the Zogby Interactive online poll isn't worth the paper it's not printed on.

But that's blogporridge in the pot, nine days old. As of right now, we instruct you to pay attention to these real polls, as collected by our friend and old blogmeister, Captain Ed Morrissey; they all show Queen Hillary hemorrhaging support like a New Orleans levee in a mild drizzle.

Rudy Giluliani is also losing steam, Mitt Romney and John McCain are staying about the same, and Mike Huckabee is shooting up. I suspect the last will drop again, and I don't expect him to win Iowa (turnout is much more important in a caucus state than popularity in polling); but no question, this race is tightening considerably.

If Hillary loses Iowa and New Hampshire, she's a goner. Her only real strength is the aura of inevitability; lose that, and all you have left is the grimace-inducing, anti-charismatic, lamp-hurling fishwife of a reasonably popular but inconsequential past president.

I again note for the record that I have predicted all along that Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-Carpetbag, 95%) will never be the Democratic nominee for president. I have never tried to weasel out of that prediction, and I'll stand or fall by it.

"grimace-inducing, anti-charismatic, lamp-hurling fishwife of a reasonably popular but inconsequential past president."

Best description I've ever heard of her.

Actually, she would have been sunk months ago if there were a better alternative.

Biden - Arrogant to the point of absurdity.

Edwards - Inexperienced trial lawyer who couldn't get elected dog-catcher in his home state.

Kucinich - Nutbag leftist. Is he still even running?

Dodd - Claim to fame being he's the other senator from CN.

Obama - Foreign policy experience being he once lived in another country.

Richardson - Only guy on the D side with a reseasonable resume comes off as oddly goofy.

That the race is tightening is very good news. IMHO, the very best thing that could happen would be for all of these polls, early primaries, caucuses, straw polls and over-hyped media snorefests produce no clear leader until the national conventions in September. That might convince all these power-mad prima dona presidential aspirants to contain their campaign antics to something approaching a rational human's attention span-- say a month or two, tops.
