Republicans think that their candidates are losers.
Three weeks before the Iowa caucuses, Republican voters across the country appear uninspired by their field of presidential candidates, with a vast majority saying they have not made a final decision about whom to support, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll..
Not one of the Republican candidates is viewed favorably by even half the Republican electorate, the poll found. And in a sign of the fluidity of the race, former Gov. Mike Huckabee of Arkansas, who barely registered in early polls several months ago, is now locked in a tight contest nationally with Rudolph W. Giuliani and Mitt Romney.
By contrast, Democrats are happier with their field and more settled in their decisions. For all the problems Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton appears to be having holding off her rivals in Iowa and New Hampshire, she remains strong nationally, the poll found. Even after what her aides acknowledge have been two of the roughest months of her candidacy, she is viewed by Democrats as a far more electable presidential nominee than either Senator Barack Obama or John Edwards.
That pretty much jibes with my feelings. Any of the Dem candidates would work fine with me, except possibly for no-chancers like Kucinich and Joe Biden, and even Biden has been an amusing pain in the GOP ass lately. A noun, a verb and 9/11 has impressive legs as a capsule description of the Giuliani campaign. On that other hand I really feel sorry for GOP voters who have to pretend enthusiasm for their pathetic slate of has-beens, flakes, fakes and crooks.
Consider this an open thread for whatever political news I should be blogging but I’m not.
