55-45 WINS NH (via obc):

Hatin’ on Hillary: N.H. Dems lambaste Clinton (Brett Arends, 8/07/06, Boston Herald)

Dick Bennett has been polling New Hampshire voters for 30 years. And he’s never seen anything like it.

“Lying b**** . . . shrew . . . Machiavellian . . . evil, power-mad witch . . . the ultimate self-serving politician.”

No prizes for guessing which presidential front-runner drew these remarks in focus groups.

But these weren’t Republicans talking about Hillary Clinton. They weren’t even independents.

These were ordinary, grass-roots Democrats. People who identified themselves as “likely” voters in the pivotal state’s Democratic primary. And, behind closed doors, this is what nearly half of them are saying. [...]

His conclusion? “Forty-five percent of the Democrats are just as negative about her as Republicans are. More Republicans dislike her, but the Democrats dislike her in the same way.”

What state is it even possible for John McCain to lose to her?

What state? The state of denial, of course.

Ron Sims is already in the process of making sure she wins here in the Upper Left Washington. Of course in this state, you can win without having the most votes.

After Topinka saddles IL with yet another massive Republican tax hike, Hillary will win here too.

Republicans will will be forcibly relocated to other states.

(Rod is still the way to bet, but indictments from Fitzgerald may yet sink him. The irony! Peter Fitzgerald gets a prosecutor to clean up IL, and it ends up electing the vile b---h who played a major part in forcing Fitzgerald's hands in deciding not to run.

And she's just as corrupt as Rod! Only in IL.)

The epitome of the current conservative climate is mourning when you take away a governorship.
