  •  The poll (8+ / 0-)

    Actually shows a large jump in the number of people who think the media have been too harsh on Obama.

    Still, more people think the media has been "too harsh" on Hillary. Scary.

    At any rate, though, the American people told the pollsters that McCain is getting a free pass. Will the MSM listen?

    This is all in the poll PDF. Look it up if you want detailed numbers.

      They need a horse race. Any attention that they pay to McCain drives his numbers down.

        the primaries end?

        It sure seems so to me. Once the Dems settle on a candidate, the media has to cover the critique of McCain, at least to some degree. And when that happens, it seems to me, McCain's candidacy will inevitably fall apart.

        I just can't see him as a viable candidate in the current climate once people start taking a serious look on his stances on the war, the economy, his egregious flip-flopping and pandering, his ties with lobbyists, etc. And his "eloquence" and inspirational skills, when compared to Obama's, are ludicrous.

        Hillary, I believe, could clean his clock and with Obama, barring some kind of disaster, it could be a massacre of historic proportions. Witness LA-06 if you have doubts. This is not going to be a GOP year, espeically if their candidate is the "last man standing."
