Dem Voters Choose McCain Over Intra-Party Rival

Recent political polls indicate John McCain would be a statistical dead heat with either Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton. Though the numbers show McCain slightly beating both Democrats, his polling numbers are within the margin of error.

If Clinton were to gain the Democrat Party nomination over Obama, 20% of the Obama messianists say they would vote for John McCain in November. When the question is reversed, Clinton is smacked down by Obama, 19% of the Clinton deadenders would cast their vote for McCain. (Poll here)

That does not mean John Sydney McCain, III would be the automatic numerical winner in the General Election come November. What the numbers and preferences do mean is that there are extremely deep divisions in the Democrat Party. The extent of the animosity will most likely throw the Democrat race into a serious knife fight in the convention.

At that point, all bets are off as to whether the Dems nominate Tax and Spend, or Spend and Tax. If the rifts are not bridged, opponents do not kiss and make-up, and the preferences expressed in polls today hold, then John McCain stands the best chance of winning the White House even if only by default.
