John McCain in 2008 Speculation


On Principles & Values: Poll: Hillary vs. McCain in 2008 would be “nailbiter”

If the 2008 presidential race were between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican John McCain, the country could be in for another nail-biter. The next presidential election may be more than two years away, but the politicking has already started and many consider Clinton and McCain the front-runners for their respective political parties.

In the latest national voter poll, McCain bests Clinton by a slim 4-percentage point margin - 46 percent to 42 percent - in a hypothetical matchup. Given the poll’s 3-point margin of error, that means this race could go either way.

Women are slightly more likely to favor Clinton over McCain (by 4 percentage points). Self-identified independents are somewhat more likely to say they would vote for McCain (by 8 points) than for Clinton. “The nation has witnessed two very close elections in a row, and right now it looks like a third may be shaping up,” the pollster said.
