    •  Ras is a ditto head. Hmm would Gore or Hilliary h (0+ / 0-)

      have faced criticism over the past month and a half?  Yes, would there numbers have gone down as a result?  Yes.  But Ras wants us all to believe that Gore and Hiliary would have stayed honey sweet in voters minds for the past month and a half.  The guy does not understand political reality.  The candidate that is NOT in the race always fares better than the ones in the race.

      •  No doubt Ras is a conservative RW... (0+ / 0-)

        guy...but overall his polling analysis has been pretty accurate...that being said, I partially agree with your point that the non-candidates would have had some more negative press if they were running.

        During the primaries when Obama was "flying high" in the tracking polls against the Republicans...I always predicted the attacks (although I did not think they would be this bad from the left) would bring Obama's positives down to the level of Hillary's...and I was right...

    •  interesting but meaningless observation (0+ / 0-)
      1. because it's July
      1. because it's not electoral vote
      1. because it's an idealized candidate vs a real candidate
