    There are three things I see here.

    1. Everyone hates McCain, thats not surprising but good to note
    2.Putting Non-Canidates (Read Fred Thompson) in the poll messes it all up and invalidates the results
    3. Measuring opposite party favorableness does not tell us ANYTHING.

    That being said I still enjoyed that poll.


    I like Fred Thompson only, the rest can crawl back to wherever they were spawned from.

    Fred Thompson is NOT a “non candidate.” Just because he hasn’t taken the step of filing an “official” declaration of candidacy doesn’t mean he ain’t running. Hell, Hillary was a candidate starting in January 2001 (some would say starting before she went to Wellesley).

    Further, as no one is asked to rank a candidate above or below any other candidate, having (or not having cough Ron Paul cough) a certain candidate on this list has NO BEARING on the outcome for anyone else.
