Colin Powell More Likely To Beat McCain Than Obama! Powell Would Beat Obama!
Rasmussen is reporting results from one of their newest surveys, and the results are startling…
“It’s a good thing for Republicans that Colin Powell is still one of them.
Powell, the popular former Secretary of State and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, handily beats Republican presidential candidate John McCain in a one-on-one match-up. This comes at a time when Barack Obama holds a very slight lead over McCain in the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll.
Powell, the best-known African-American in the Republican Party, beats McCain more than two-to-one, 54% to 26%, with 21% of voters undecided.
An identical number of Democrats (75%) prefer either Obama or Powell over McCain.
But while 84% of GOP voters favor McCain against Obama, just 48% favor him over Powell, who pulls 35% of GOP voters in a contest with his fellow Republican.
Unaffiliated voters give the edge to McCain over Obama 41% to 35%. But Powell beats McCain among unaffiliateds 44% to 21%. Female voters prefer Powell 56% to 22%. Men are divided.”
And of course, there is still that constant rumor out there that McCain has persuaded Colin Powell to run with him. The polls show that combination would be unstoppable. Too bad most Obama supporters are radical leftist atheists. Obama could use their prayers about now. 🙂
