Despite the recent shrill attacks from Jeanine Pirro, Hillary Clinton is looking solid in NY.
Do you definitely plan to vote for Hillary Clinton for re-election as U.S. Senator or do you definitely plan to vote against her?
Definitely Vote For 52%
Definitely Vote Against 32%
Depends Who Runs 8%
In head-to-head match ups against the two top Republican challengers:
Hillary Clinton 59% (50%)
Jeanine Pirro 35% (28%)
Undecided 6% (22%)
Hillary Clinton 61% (66%)
Edward Cox 34% (26%)
Undecided 5% (8%)
According to the same Marist Poll, New Yorkers respond: Yeah, so what?
During Hillary Clinton's re-election campaign for the U.S. Senate, do you think she should pledge to fulfill another six year term and not run for president in 2008, or should she not make such a pledge?
Should Pledge 37%
Should Not Pledge 53%
Do you think Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2008 or not?
Will run 54%
Will Not run 34%
More than half of New Yorkers already assume Clinton will run, yet she is trouncing Pirro as well as all other possible challengers. Pirro's campaign is turning into a giant money pit. Her shrill attacks against Hillary play well with the national Clinton haters, but they ring hallow in New York. Pirro is going to raise and spend a lot of money to finish a distant second.
Btw, the same Marist Poll has Eliot Spitzer very comfortably leading all challengers as well.
