Gore emerging as the un-Hillary for 2008

Sure, strategic vision is a republican polling firm, but Chris Bowers had recently quoted their poll to talk about Rendell's numbers I believe. So, let's look at 5 most recent polls in stratetic vision's series of state polls.

Who is your first choice for the Democratic nomination in 2008? (Democrats only): highlighting the double digit performances.

(I'll repost in table form later if time permits).

It appears clear to me that barring "homeboy" advantage for Edwards in SC in the ARG polls Chris brought to our attention, and Feingold in Wisconsin (while 23% in WI is still anemic, it's good for him that he's improved there compared to earlier polls there), it appears to me that Gore is quite clearly emerging as the top un-Hillary for 2008.

Now a simple question to Chris: how come you didn't mention these polls in making the pronouncements of your post?

As for Esteem

Chris also says "Feingold, Clark, Warner and Edwards have significant potential for upward movement, considering the esteem in which they are held among the activist base.

Sure those four have decent support levels (esp. the first three have clear double digit support) ground among the netroots, but let us remember that Kos and Bowers' pre-selecting polls are taken after excluding Gore in them giving one excuse or another.

Thanks.

Re: Gore emerging as the un-Hillary for 2008

This is from the same ARG poll. If she cannot win in NE blue from McCAIN why should the democrats nominate her.

Right now it's all about one thing:

Name recognition.

At this point in 2002, I bet you'd have seen Lieberman topping polls for '04 because people knew his name.
