McCain Trails Obama + Hillary by Double Digits

John McCain trails both Hillary Clinton by double digits in this latest CBS poll.

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/05/0 4/opinion/polls/main4069259.shtml

Once again this shows that both Obama and Clinton are the electable ones and John McCain, the fatally flawed candidate who has sold his heart and soul to Bush, Hagee, Hannity, Parsley, Quinn, and other extremists on the far right, has absolutely no chance in November considering how 8 homes 100 million dollar elitist McCain supports the same policies that Bush does on Iraq, mortgage foreclosures, gas prices, the economy, tax policy, and other issues in which McCain is completely outside the mainstream of American politics.

While I welcome the news by great measure, I take this poll with a grain of salt because it sounds too good to be true!

Great news for getting a democrat elected in the fall-which is the top priority.

I wouldn't get overconfident

I wouldn't say that he has "no chance," but things don't look good for him if things proceed as they have been.  

Both of our Democratic candidates are fighters that won't let themselves be swiftboated; in fact, after campaign-season scandals, both Clinton and Obama have significantly rebounded.

McCain really hasn't had much in the way of scandals (unless you count his "100 years" comments); his numbers are just kinda bad naturally.  A strong candidate would be polling much higher while Democrats tried to eat each other alive.

Credit should go out to the DNC for running ads against McCain while our candidates are... occupied.

I wouldn't worry too much - Dems are still infighting.

How dare you bring good news to democrats/progressives in general. If you haven't gotten the memo, neither of the democratic candidates are electable.

I'm sure someone will "partisanize" the thread soon enough, but at least for the moment, it's nice to hear some unambiguously good news.

This is good news for sure

Nice to see that it's the hardcore Republicans that have the biggest problem Rev. Wright and not everybody else. I always figured it would shake out that way. There are some people who just despise Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama - mostly because they are Democrats. And those voters will latch on to any story they can. For them, Fox News exists. For the rest of us, Obama and Clinton are miles better than McCain and the Republicans.

Re: lol
That was 20 years ago.
Take it from an ex-Republican who saw Reagan as Goldwater II, yesterday's train wreck is yesterday's train wreck, times change and so does the political landscape.
