Name Recognition

Gallup Poll reports that among the four Republican frontrunners only Giuliani and McCain have high name recognition at 91% and 87% respectively. Romney has 64% recognition and undeclared Thompson has 56% recognition.  But only 46% of Republicans know all four candidates well enough to rate them. This leaves room for significant fluctuation in the leaderboard.  8-24-2007

Ohio May Not Be the Battleground State in 2008

Democratic strategists tell us that with Florida tilting more Republican and Ohio going the other way, it is states like Colorado, Montana, Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico that will be the battlegrounds in 2008. Among the reasons, say Dems: a growing Hispanic population that leans left and independent voters angry with a fat and pushy federal government. “We’ve got a lot more places to play in 2008 than Florida and Ohio,” says a party strategist.  Paul Bedard  8-26-2007

Hillary Considers Strickland as Running Mate

A new name has entered conversations among Democrats contemplating a running mate for Sen. Hillary Clinton if she is nominated for president: Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland.

Strickland, age 66,  easily won election as governor after five terms in Congress. He evokes interest for a Clinton ticket as a moderate liberal who has a clean record and comes from a closely contested swing state that decided the 2004 presidential election. Robert Novak   8-25-2007
