VOTERS BEWARE! Why early matchup polls are total bunk:
1) Early polls taken during the 1996 primary season turned out to be dead wrong in the case of Senator Dole, since all January polls showed him beating Bill Clinton but in the General Election in November he lost in a landslide,
2) Potential third party candidates like Perot make any 'head-to-head' or 'one-on-one' poll at this point wholly irrelevant (i.e., Bloomberg, Nader),
3) The hardcore conservative base told Rush in no uncertain terms they will not turn out to vote for McCain in the General Election, and no Republican nominee has ever won a General Election without energizing the conservative base,
4) McCain obviously can get anti-Romney votes, but so far he hasn't won a majority of any state and has single-handedly de-energized the conservative base.
"Many McCain supporters insist he is the only Republican who can beat Hillary Clinton or Barak Obama. And they point to certain polls. The polls are meaningless this far from November. Six months ago, the polls had Rudy winning the Republican nomination. In October 1980, the polls had Jimmy Carter defeating Ronald Reagan. This is no more than spin."

"And also says this about whether the race is over, "No, absolutely not. I think this race is wide open. I think Mitt Romney still has a very good chance of winning. You know, I think right now, we’re looking at the media trying to make Barack Obama the president, and make John McCain the shill for him. And I don’t see, I think they know that John McCain can’t win this election, and they know…it’s probably the best chance for them to do it." (Senator Rick Santorum,
"John McCain is Bob Dole minus the charm, conservatism and youth. Like McCain, pollsters assured us that Dole was the most "electable" Republican. Unlike McCain, Dole didn't lie all the time while claiming to engage in Straight Talk" (Ann Coulter, 'STRAIGHT TALK' EXPRESS TAKES SCENIC ROUTE TO TRUTH, http://www.anncoulter.com/cgi-local/article.cgi?article=231)
MEDIA ANOINTS MCCAIN THE NEXT "BOB DOLE"
McCain doesn't need fundraising. Media gives it to him free. McCain lies about Romney 3 days before Florida primary with willing accomplices in the press. So what hypocrisy to deny regular Americans the right to produce attack ads within 30 days of an election (McCain Feingold)! So much for free speech!
Senator McCain cannot win General Election any more than Senator Dole in 1996. Even though all early media polls during Primary Season showed Dole winning handily, Clinton CRUSHED Dole in the General. Wasn't pretty.
No difference between Hilary and McCain. Both voted for War in Iraq, and both later attacked Rumsfeld. McCain is also against the Federal Marriage Protection Act to the U.S. Constitution, was one of only two Republicans who voted against Bush tax cuts (now he is for them!), and wants constitutional rights and trials given to unlawful enemy combatants! This man wouldn't know a strict constructionist judge from a terrorist!
Senator McCain is a CLONE of Senator Dole. Both were Senators for a couple decades. Both were decorated war heroes with serious war injuries. Both were known to 'reach across' the aisle and 'be friends' with liberals. Both thought their friends the 'Clintons' were going to go easy on them during the debates (hardly!). Both were known Rhinos and moderates especially on taxes. Both were running against a Clinton (Dole in 1996 and McCain maybe in 2008 if he gains the nomination).
Both during the primaries were AHEAD of their rival Clinton in all the media polls (all polls showed Dole beating Bill Clinton in the General Election). And guess what, MY FRIENDS? Bob E.D. Dole was SLAUGHTERED in the General Election despite all the early 'polls' to the contrary!! That's why Ann Coulter endorsed Mitt Romney, because he is the ONLY conservative that can win in the General election. It takes the whole Republican BASE to win an election, not just 30% of moderates!!
