Rasmussen: It's Anybody's Game, All Five Major Candidates Between 19% (Huckster) and 11% (Teh Fred)

Hmmm... pretty much they all have a shot, including the once left-for-dead McCain and Thompson, who everyone is basically saying is out of it because he's polling so low... but, um, just a couple of points behind the people who are leading.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday continues to show that five Republican hopefuls are in double digits. However, for the first time ever, not a single Republican candidate reaches the 20% level of support. In the race for the Republican Presidential Nomination, itís Mike Huckabee at 19%, Rudy Giulianin 16%, John McCain and Mitt Romney at 15% each, and Fred Thompson at 11%. Ron Paul currently attracts 6% of Likely Republican Primary voters nationwide.

So... I guess I have to say this or the Fredheads will bitch. (Guys, some of you are getting to be like the Paulbots of the respectable candidate field. Dial it down a few notches, huh? Let people take their time about making up their minds... the way Fred would want it. All moseying-like and unhurried, eh?)

There's no reason of electability or viability to withhold support of Fred, because he's not any more out of it than Romney or Giuliani is.

Edit: Because my original comparison of Fredheads to Paulbots was far, far more incendiary than I ever imagined it would be (I thought it was joke... mostly), I've re-written it to be gentler and also more reflective of what I actually meant.
