Poll: Hillary Would Lose To All Major Republican Candidates, Including Huckabee
Update: The Bad News Is, It's A Zogby Poll

McCain seems to do the best, though they all beat her.

A coblogger (probably Dave in Texas) posted this in the sidebar, but RobG just reminded me. Seems big enough to note on the main page.

Democrat Hillary Clinton would lose to all major Republican White House candidates, according to a hypothetical election matchup poll Monday, reversing her months of dominance over potential 2008 challengers.

The Zogby International poll was the latest sign that withering attacks on the former first lady were chipping away at her opinion poll leads just 38 days before the Iowa caucuses, the first party nominating contests.

In the new survey, Clinton trailed Senator John McCain 42 percent to 38 percent, former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani by 43 percent to 40 percent and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney by 43 percent to 40 percent.

She also lagged behind former Arkansas Republican governor Mike Huckabee by 44 to 39 percent, and former Senator Fred Thompson by 44 to 40 percent in hypothetical general election matchups.

Clinton's top Democratic challengers Barack Obama and John Edwards however would still beat their hypothetical Republican rivals in potential 2008 contests.

In July, Clinton held a five point lead in the same poll over Giuliani, edged out McCain by two points and had a clear lead over other contenders.

A Rasmussen poll last week had Clinton also falling behind Giuliani in a hypothetical matchup of the November 2008 general election, and narrowly beaten by McCain.

InEVITAble? Let us hope so, at least as regards the Democratic nomination.

But It's Smothered In Secret Sauce: TMF points out

A. Its Zogby

B. Its Zogby interactive

C. Its got John Edwards beating men with actual penises (McCain, Guiliani)

D. Its Zogby.

True enough. The "interactive" part is especially bad because that's not even a random sample.

Allah noted that, and suggests checking out Gallup instead, which has the White Witch beating Rudy by five and McCain by six and everyone else by more.
