Zogby Interactive's Latest National Poll

The numbers look good these days for any of the major Republican presidential candidates against the likely Democratic nominee. Zogby Interactive's latest nationwide poll found that Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, Fred Thompson, John McCain and Mike Huckabee each lead Hillary Clinton "by three to five percentage points in the direct matches," according to Reuters.

Zogby's findings undercut the latest Kentucky poll conducted by Survey USA, which found Hillary to be ahead of every Republican candidate in Presidential head-to-head contests. If Zogby is correct that Hillary is behind in the national polling, then it is hard to fathom that a poll showing her leading in Kentucky would be very accurate.

Survey USA also found that Barack Obama trailed Giuliani by 14, McCain by 22 and Romney by 1 in the Bluegrass. Zogby, in contrast, polled Obama and John Edwards both with "narrow leads" nationwide over the Republicans, according to Reuters.

Please note: The postings of "G. Morris", written by John K. Bush and which end in 2016, stated his views as of the dates of posting and should not be understood as current assertions of his views. The postings, which have not been altered since they came to an end, remain on this blog to preserve the historical record. In 2017, Mr. Bush took a position that precludes further public political comments or endorsements. He will no longer be contributing to this blog.
