Latest Florida Mason-Dixon Poll

The latest Mason-Dixon poll has the top tier Republican presidential candidates beating Hillary Clinton in the Florida general ection.

Giuliani - 50
Clinton - 43

Romney - 46
Clinton - 45

Thompson - 48
Clinton - 44

The poll shows one in five voters will not vote for a Democrat because of the candidate boycott and the DNC stripping Florida of delegates. Ouch.

There's a way to win a swing state. Though I guess the Democrats could figure, "Even when we receive the majority of votes there, we still lose!" and take Florida for a lost cause. The wounds of 2000 are still raw.. Despite how much everyone wants to blame it on Nader (instead of fixing a rigged electoral system).

Now. Which means nothing. The likelihood of this many people still being upset next November is very unlikely.

Similarly, opinion polls about who people are going to vote for this far in advance of the election are largely meaningless.

Both are true. There's no question if Nader isn't in that race, Gore wins easily. Also, if Jeb hadn't been governor. Or if Gore campaigned better. Or...or...or... Lots of factors gave us the 2000 turnout.

Yes, don't forget the feline factor; Krazy Kitty Harris.

I sum it up too simply I suppose: they stole it. It's not sour grapes. It's well-researched.
Personally, I'm glad they did. I was sleeping at the wheel. THAT will never happen again.
I forever state what I do not trust: Mason Dixon is FIRMLY on that list.
Also to be considered is that many very politically astute folks no longer have land lines.
