General Clark steals Deans thunder......

.....slightly.

A new Fox News Poll has General Clark leading the Democratic pack by a small margin.

Clark 14%
Lieberman 12%
Dean 12%
Kerry 10%
Gepthart 8%

With 10 candidates, its a very tight field. It looks like Clark has taken a little from everyone. The question will be when certain candidates start to drop out of the race, who will their supporters turn to?

I think it's de facto pretty unreliable in whatever corner of the world you care to look.

Well, it certainly is a bit questionable, if only because of Lieberman's high place in this. In most polls, he runs pretty low, which makes me ask how FOX News conducted this poll.

It's not so much news as entertainment, is it? I sometimes watch Fox news (yes, we're cursed with it over in the UK too) before I go to some political activity...it just reminds me who they enemy is.

Ooops, almost forgot to comment on the actual story there. I'm not entirely convinced of the poll's reliability given that other polls I've seen placed both Kerry and Dean above Lieberman and it seems to me unlikely that he's pulled support away from Kerry/Dean at the same time that Clark's won support from their backers.

Even so, assuming it is reliable, I've heard many people say they think Clark would be the most credible Democratic candidate, which would obviously be good as he would have the best chance of beating Bush. It would also be less good as I can't say I agree with a lot of his politics and I would agree more with someone like Howard Dean.

I guess it comes down to that lesser of two evils argument again. Hmm.

I know what you mean, Fizz. I'm a liberal, but I'd rather have a moderate in the White House than a dyed-in-the-wool conservative like we do now. It's a matter of philosophy, and not really a personal deal for me. Besides which, Dean is not as liberal as Kucinich is. A friend of mine is supporting Kucinich and he *hates* Dean. If Clark wins the nomination, I'll be glad to vote for him. But I really don't give a damn about polls now. They are really premature, and Fox doesn't have much credibility anyway.

A Time/CNN Poll from last week of registered Democratic voters across the country showed Kerry and Lieberman ahead of Dean. Where Dean has blown out the others are in the "early primary State" Polls. In national polls, Kerry and Lieberman do better.

As far as Fox's credibility, other polls should be coming out soon. Will see how close they are to the one Fox had which again was of national registered Democratic voters instead of just particular states.

NEWSWEEK POLL

Quote:
CLARK WON SUPPORT from 14 percent registered Democrats and democratic leaners, outpacing former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean (12 percent), Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman (12 percent), Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry (10 percent) and Missouri Congressman Dick Gephardt (8 percent).

Meanwhile, as Americans focus on the fiscal realities of creating a stable Iraq, President George W. Bush’s approval ratings continue to slide, the poll shows. The president’s approval rating now stands at 51 percent, down 1 point from last week’s poll and from 65 percent on May 1, when major hostilities in Iraq ended.

For the first time in a year, Bush’s approval for his handling of the situation in Iraq has dropped below 50 percent to 46 percent, a 5-point drop from last week. Fifty-six percent of Americans say they think the amount of money being spent in Iraq is too high. And 57 percent of Americans now disapprove of how Bush is handling the economy, an increase of 6 points from only one week ago.

The NEWSWEEK poll was conducted by Princeton Survey Research Associates, which interviewed 1,001 adults by telephone on September 18 and 19. The margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.

I think the the poll I saw on FOX may have been FOX simply reporting the Newsweek poll.

Well, assuming that this poll falls in line with other polls, it certainly shows that more people are familiar with Clark than just FYM!

It's that beginners buzz. Not to say I wouldn't play that way. I do have a problem with Leiberman's numbers. They haven't been that high on any poll.
