    It's too early to predict a John McCain victory. The democrats are too busy challenging each other to mount a unified spirited campaign against McCain.

    The general is 6 months away - a lifetime in presidential politics.

    Right now, all anyone can do is wait for the democratic nominee and speculate about what's going to happen, and who may or may not win.

    Read the poll, it has nothing to do with the primaries, it has to do with who TRUSTS whom.

    For now, ads usually chip away or add to those numbers.

    McCain hasn't had anyone challenge him yet.

    Like I said...wait 5 months or so.

    There is a good ad running now with everything McSame says about the economy dead wrong. I am starting to find him a bit out of touch with reality especially when it concerns Iraq. But as far as republicans go is there anyone better?

    The polls, if accurate, reflect the damage the Democrats are doing to each other, and the free ride McCain has gotten from his opponents and a friendly press. That situation won't last.

    Didn't the military teach you to lead your target, RGS? You're firing your shots at where the candidates are now. That's why you missed; they're moving.

    Looks to me like both candidates can beat McCain.

    Rasmussen and Gallup run tracking polls every other day or so pitting McCain against Obama and Clinton respectively. Generally, both of them beat McCain by about the same margin (roughly 2-4 points). You can find polling information updated daily at
