Hillary’s Electability

From Zogby’s new survey:

Clinton trailed Senator John McCain 42 percent to 38 percent, former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani by 43 percent to 40 percent and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney by 43 percent to 40 percent.

She also lagged behind former Arkansas Republican governor Mike Huckabee by 44 to 39 percent, and former Senator Fred Thompson by 44 to 40 percent in hypothetical general election matchups.

Clinton’s top Democratic challengers Barack Obama and John Edwards however would still beat their hypothetical Republican rivals in potential 2008 contests.

The significance of the poll is more symbolic, as all leads fall within the margin of error.  But still, the results are unfavorable to the tenet central to Clinton’s strategy – she alone can beat the Republican nominee.
