Election 2008: McCain 45% Clinton 38%


According to The Rasmussen Reports polling information
McCain beats Clinton 45% to 38% in the 2008 Presidential Election

Rudy Giuliani beats Hillary42% to 40%

April 27, 2005–Given a choice between Republican John McCain and Democrat Hillary Clinton, 45% of Americans today say they’d vote for McCain. Thirty-eight percent (38%) for Clinton.

If the Republican in the race was Rudy Giuliani, it’s a toss-up–42% for Giuliani and 40% for Clinton.

Both Republicans in the poll are viewed favorably by 48% of Americans. Giuliani is viewed unfavorably by 25%, McCain by 24%.

Senator Clinton is viewed favorably by 41% and unfavorably by 42%. Rasmussen Reports publishes a Hillary Meter every other week to track the former First Lady’s effort to move toward the political center.

Giuliani does a bit better than McCain among Republican voters while McCain makes slightly bigger inroads among Democrats.

Among those not affiliated with either major party, McCain leads Clinton 38% to 29%. Clinton leads Giuliani 36% to 30% among unaffiliateds.

Sixty-four percent (64%) of conservatives have a favorable opinion of Giuliani. Just 51% have a favorable opinion of McCain.

Self-identified liberals are evenly divided in their opinion of Giuliani (35% favorable, 37% unfavorable). However, liberals have a far more positive view of McCain (45% favorable, 26% unfavorable).

Despite the more positive opinion of McCain, liberal voters would vote for Clinton over McCain by a 71% to 16% margin.

Assuming this will occur; however, I cannot see in any way that the Republican Party would ever nominate John Mc Cain.

Also on the Liberal Hillary meter, Hillary is up 4 from last week.

Forty-seven percent (47%) of Americans now believe New York Senator Hillary Clinton is politically liberal. That’s up from 43% two weeks ago, but down from 51% in late January
