Who Do You Dislike Most?

  • 19 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols


There’s been a lot of talk in Colorado political circles about which candidates for President will have the best down-ballot effect for other candidates. Much of that talk has centered around the candidacy of Hillary Clinton, which many on both sides of the aisle warn could be trouble for Democrats.

But is that really the case? A recent ABC News/Washington Post poll might indicate otherwise:

“If [see below] wins the Democratic/Republican nomination for president would you definitely vote for him/her in the general election for president in 2008, would you consider voting for him/her or would you definitely not vote for him/her?”

PERCENT SAYING “DEFINITELY WOULD NOT”

Obama — 39%
Clinton — 41%
Edwards — 43%
Giuliani — 44%
McCain — 45%
Thompson — 54%
Romney — 57%

This is somewhat surprising, since the prevailing wisdom has always been that Hillary is so loathed by a wide swath of people. If this nationwide poll reflects attitudes in Colorado, then the candidate with the biggest down-ballot effect isn’t Hillary – it’s Romney.

What do you think? Poll follows…

  1. this does reflect opinion in Colorado.  I think Clinton’s “definitely not” would be somewhat higher here.  Don’t see her helping down-ballot candidates. Bill Clinton lost here without Perot to symphony R votes in his second election and I don’t see her being better liked than Bill.  In 2004 the Salazars won in spite of Kerry losing. In Colorado  a Clinton candidacy will either not help or hurt down-ballot.

  2. I did not expect to see Romney being the #1 disliked. That really surprised me. OTH, I note that both Thompson and Romney are up there, so maybe I should not be too surprised. Thompson is just another reagan/W. clone (you can expect moster deficits, loads of lies and treason, corruption out the ying/yang), and Romney has neo-con backing (he was doing great in my book until the neo-cons backed him AND he accepted it).

    But I am also surprised to see HRC so low. I would have expected her to be MUCH higher.

  3. I don’t think I could vote for any of them even if Kucinich was the Dem candidate.

    The Mitt Romney who was governor of MA – I could have voted for him. The Giuliani who was mayor of New York – possibly, depending on who was the Dem.

    But what they have become – NFW!

  4. McCain has returned to where his 2000 campaign was derailed:

    A smear campaign during the primary in February 2000 here had many in South Carolina falsely believing that Mr. McCain’s wife, Cindy, was a drug addict and that the couple’s adopted daughter, Bridget, was the product of an illicit union. Mr. McCain’s patriotism, mental well-being and sexuality were also viciously called into question.

    1. Campaigns really bring out the best in people, don’t they ?

      In my mind there is no question about John McCain’s sexuality – actually I have got to give him props.  He is about 70 and Cindy is still not a bad looking gal.  If my wife looks that good when I am 70 then I can’t wait for retirement !  Good job John.

      1. “props” be directed at Cindy–not John?

        She has more to do with her appearance than he does.  She is, after all, a person–not a posession that he has “maintained”—like a car or something.
