Pollster Frank Newport, a Kudlow & Company regular and editor-in-chief of the Gallup Poll, revealed some very interesting information this morning. These numbers below are a big deal.
As I wrote yesterday, we're not far from the point where John McCain establishes a commanding lead in the run-up to November.
Here's the Gallup headline:
If McCain vs. Obama, 28% of Clinton Backers Go for McCain
PRINCETON, NJ -- A sizable proportion of Democrats would vote for John McCain next November if he is matched against the candidate they do not support for the Democratic nomination. This is particularly true for Hillary Clinton supporters, more than a quarter of whom currently say they would vote for McCain if Barack Obama is the Democratic nominee. . . .
Incidentally, Mac 's foreign policy speech later today indicates a McCain administration will spend diplomatic efforts shoring up our allies. Obama, on the other hand, wants to work with our enemies. Big contrast there. Think Hugo Chavez. Ahmadinejad. Baby Assad. Kim Jong-il. Two totally different foreign policies between Mac and Obama.
