In a poll conducted by KCCI-TV in Iowa among likely caucus goers during December 18-20, HRC faces an uphill challenge.
The basics (truncated from Real Clear Politics)…
John Edwards 22%
Barack Obama 22%
Tom Vilsack 12%
Hillary Clinton 10%
In a match-up to the Republican nominee, HRC only beats Mitt Romney – but Romney also loses to Kerry and Gore.
This might suggest the problems with HRC as electable in a general election and interestingly the fact that Democrats are coming to that understanding now.
Does HRC still enter looking at these numbers?
By the way, where HRC had been clearly ahead of all contenders in New Hampshire, look who caught up spending only 5 days there in December.
