Those who get their news from television will be shocked to learn that apparently some voters are not swooning for Barack Obama, as Rasmussen Reports found:
Thirty-four percent (34%) of all voters say they will definitely vote for John McCain if he is on the ballot this November. Thirty-three percent (33%) will definitely vote against him while 29% say their support hinges on who his opponent is.
Barack Obama has the same number who will definitely vote for him--34%. But, more people are committed to voting against him than McCain. Forty-three percent (43%) say they will definitely reject him at the ballot box. For 18%, their support depends on his opponent.
Read the entire article at the link provided. Hillary Clinton's negatives lead all major contenders (as she has for the entire campaign) with 46% professing to oppose her with certainty, but this is statistically within the margin of error of Obama's rating.
McCain begins the campaign with the largest segment of the voting population willing, at least, to consider his candidacy. Not bad for a fellow written off by most observers - including yours truly - nine months ago.
