Meaninless poll interesting results

Polls like this are crap this early in the game but the results are interesting. I not particularly excited at all about any of these candidates except possibly Obama. There is much talent in the Democratic party so expect other exciting candidates enter this race. Only 11% of Americans support sending more troops to Iraq which McCain is pushing for at this moment. This can't be helping his situation but who cares. I say let him keep proposing this nonsense and if Bush does go along with more troops as I think he will, McCain will have a difficult time getting past the primaries in 08.
Newsweek Poll conducted by Princeton Survey Research Associates International. Dec. 6-7, 2006. N=864 registered voters nationwide. MoE ± 4

"Now I'm going to describe some different choices of candidates voters might have in the 2008 election for president.

Suppose you HAD TO CHOOSE between [see below], the Democrat, and [see below], the Republican. Who would you vote for?" If other/unsure: "As of TODAY, do you LEAN more toward [see below], the Democrat; or [see below], the Republican?"

Clinton 50%--43% McCain
