CNN is just releasing a poll showing Edwards is doing the best against all Republicans and has the highest margin of victory in General Election matchups.
Interviews with 1,002 adult Americans conducted by telephone
by Opinion Research Corporation on December 6-9, 2007. The
margin of sampling error for results based on the total sample
is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
FOR RELEASE: TUESDAY, DECEMBER 11 AT 6 AM
Edwards performs best against each of the leading Republicans. In addition to beating Huckabee by 25 percent and McCain by 8 percent, the North Carolina Democrat beats Romney by 22 percentage points (59 percent to 37 percent).
This is some good news to focus on and to stay above the fray of the negative campaigning that will be going on in this last few weeks.
UPdate: Just read this and thought I would add it in, cause of the way it sounds...
Standing outside the "Main Street Express" bus inside the Polk County Convention Center, John Edwards kicked off an 8-day tour of Iowa telling supporters that it's "crunch time" and urged them to caucus for him on January 3rd.
If you "stand up for me," Edwards told the union-heavy crowd, "I will stand up for you."
Edwards told the union-heavy crowd who interrupted the speech with"President Edwards" chants that "it is time for America to rise again."
