We ran across an interesting Rasmussen Poll this morning. The survey showed John McCain ahead of Hillary Clinton and Al Gore in prospective matchups. This isn't that suprising- until you see that it's a poll of likely voters in.....Massachusettes.

That's got to make Ted Kennedy want to have another beer. (or maybe just another painkiller)

In other matchups, Hillary is leading Rudy by 8% in Mass. and the generic ballot showed D over R by 31%. Ouch.

Several months ago, a Rasmussen Reports survey found Clinton soundly defeating Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney in a 2008 Presidential match-up. So take that for what it's worth.

Here's the link

We've got a lot of other news banging around the cooler that we'll get to soon.

hmmmm... Mass libs may not like Romney for governing as a fiscal and social conservative...

Like Huckabee, Brownback or Steve King, they would not either.....

WAR Mitt Romney

I would think that its not the name ID hurting Mitt in his home state. Watch out Al Gore, here comes another home state loser!

Name ID? Read Yoda's post again genius. Tennesee rejected Gore for being a liberal, Mass is upset with Mitt for governing as a conservative.

Class dismissed.

And by the way, home-staters don't like the idea of their Governors off running for president. They punish you for that. See Tom Vilsack and the DMR poll as a reference point.

Pataki would be losing NY. Allen would be losing VA. McCain would probably even be losing AZ.

The fact that McCain and Giuliani beat out Hillary in the most liberal state in the nation should tell the GOP base something . . . McCain and Giuliani are not true conservatives.

If I were a GOP candidate, I would be embarrassed to poll so well there. Romney's firm fiscal and social conservatism has made him a known and "unacceptable" presidential candidate for many Bay-Staters. The fact that he's running for POTUS makes the polarization against him all that much stronger. Awww shucks.
