Obama 55% to Huckabee's 45% come November

Don't just take my word for it.

Here is the data.

Not that I think the primary is over, its just started, but the one thing that makes me shiver is the two winners on the GOP side are Huckabee, who will be slaughtered in the general election and McCain who fairs much better in the general election but would be a disaster in the oval office from a conservative point of view. Gang of 14 ring any bells? Just think of more Supreme Court justices like Breyer and Kennedy, not Roberts and Alito. That being said, I will take any Republican over anyone the Democrats roll out in 08', except for Ron Paul, crazy people don't count.

This is going to get every interesting, very fast.
For Rudy, Florida can't get here soon enough and may be too late when it does.
Anyone need a Fred Thompson bumper sticker? There will be a big sale on those very soon.

For everyone who thought McCain was dead as disco, your truly included, the maverick is back in the game for now. It was interesting when I was looking at McCain's staff I found Mark McKinnon was running the campaign. It makes sense. McKinnon is about as good you get, tough, smart and able to dig in when things get rough.

New Hampshire has always loved John McCain and he may get the bump he needs from the granite state, but after that? Do you think the maverick is going to do well in South Carolina? Maybe.

If Romney shrivels up and fades away after a defeat in NH, where will that establishment money go? Huckabee? I don't think so, if McCain wins big in New Hampshire, Romney is toast and Rudy and McCain will divvy up the old line GOP money.

Time will tell.

The only good news I came away with tonight was this.

The Republican National Committee, which reported yesterday that it had raised $83 million for the year, easily topping the Democratic National Committee, which had raised $50.5 million in the first 11 months of 2007.
Oh, my let the spin begin!
