Forty-one percent of Florida voters who described themselves as moderates said they voted for McCain, compared to 22 percent for Giuliani.
Romney was looking to more conservative voters for the lion's share of his support.
Among the 1,505 poll respondents, 37 percent of those who called themselves conservative went for Romney. But McCain was only 10 points back at 27 percent. McCain was hoping to stay close enough to Romney among evangelicals and other conservatives to use his bigger lead among moderates for a win.
Moderates only made up 28 percent of the poll respondents, but McCain held an 18-point advantage over Romney among them.
J/O posted: McCain-Romney has to be looked at as a tag team. Romney can hammer Obama on economic issues, which can take some of the shine off Obama's halo because hope doesn't pay the bills. That leaves McCain to tackle Hillary, which he can do if he is willing to be more hawkish than she is/was.
xpert11 says: IMO if Hillary chose Obama as her VP pick she or her team would ensure that Obama would take a crash 101 course on the Clinton economic plan. Hillary could also go for one of the lesser players and avoid the problem all together. If Obama was to pull off an upset then it would be a different story.
Well just food for thought if anyone is crazy enough to keep another Republican in office after the train wreck that’s pulling out now needs to be locked up and put under watch. The whole political 2 party system you guys have bought with your soul have turned this country inside out. And this goes for the Democratic wack jobs as well. Wake up guys and stop taking the ..."Red" &"Blue"..pills . .
If you look back thou this thread you will find discussions concerning the merits of a more representative political system and how it could apply to the US.
TKainZero I guess we should have acknowledged Rudy dropping out a bit more on this thread. At face value lesson the lesson is that during a long distance you have save some fuel in the tank for the end of the race. A more pointed view is that the minor battles in places like Iowa are a vital tool when it comes to building momentum. Candidates need to win some of the minor battles without expending to many resources.
Don by your logic Clinton mandate ran out in 1994 does the same logic not apply?
There is no denying that Rudy was badly advised. I thought that his strategy stood at least a reasonable chance of success. Shows what I know.
It pains me to say this but given that Rudy wasn't able to tell that he was getting bad advice it is probably just as well that he didn't get any further. If I recall correctly Justin has been saying all a long that Rudy was being badly advised.
Super Tuesday falls on a Wednesday for me Super Wednesday just doesn't have the same ring to it does it?
I don't vote (red) or (blue) cause I want to see true change. Not some B.S. that has been slung around for as long as I have been alive.
The real reason African Americans moved to the "white" enclaves as you put it which I think is kinda racist if you think of it as "WHITE" instead of just plain "OVERPRICED DIRT" is cause they want what anyone who is dumb enough like me to get ripped off by this housing market is a damn home. That’s the real reason. They want a home.
And yes African American money spends the same as my cracker ole cash spends .. So the fact the rich live in gated communities don't mean to keep African Americans out .... That’s retarded.
