Some quotes from Robert Novak

On Human Events Online today, Robert Novak has some interesting insights about the Presidential Election, Congress and the Senate. A few interesting insights:

” Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has come out in front in Iowa on four
different recent polls, including double-digit leads in the Rasmussen, Newsweek,
and Mason-Dixon polls. This surge is for real.
Interestingly, most surveys
don't show a huge decline for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who hovers
around 20 to 25 percent in most polls, not far off his peak. Huckabee's big jump
comes at the expense of former Sen. Fred Thompson (Tenn.) and former New York
Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
Iowa's caucuses, however, are famously difficult to
poll. It's very possible Romney could win in Iowa in three weeks, despite
Huckabee's big leads. “
As I stated previously polls mean little in the caucus process since the voters don’t go into a voting booth and cast a vote then go home. The caucus process is much more interactive and opinions and voting preferences can change at the end of the day.
And this:
“Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) still has a huge national lead for the Democratic
presidential nomination, but it is deceptive. Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) has not
only moved ahead of her in the opening Iowa caucuses but has pulled even in the
subsequent primaries in New Hampshire and South Carolina. The panic felt by the
Clinton camp explains the attacks on Obama, which so far have proved
counterproductive. Democratic insiders who not long ago viewed Clinton's
nomination as inevitable now see it as only a slightly better than even
In a general election, I fear Barrack Obama more than Hillary Clinton, since Clinton has way more negative’s to overall voter’s than Obama. I think the Republican candidates are way more qualified across the board than either the DEM frontrunners but we have a lot of negative attitudes to overcome to gain those all important “undecided” voter’s.Read Article here”
