HUCKABEE STRONGEST GOP GENERAL ELECTION CANDIDATE IN SOUTHERN STATES


The best way to ensure Hillary Clinton wins the White House is if the Republican Party nominates either of the two northeastern "Yankee" candidates with liberal records of supporting abortion on demand and homosexual activists' political agenda, since they will put even some Southern states at risk to the Democrats in the November 2008 general election.

Rasmussen today confirms that scenario in the Southern state of North Carolina, where fellow Southerner Gov. Mike Huckabee holds the largest lead over likely Democratic nominee Sen. Hillary Clinton, while Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Gov. Mitt Romney are the two weakest potential GOP nominees.

Three weeks ago, Rasmussen confirmed the same scenario in the Southern state of Arkansas, finding Huckabee leading Hillary in that state while the two northeastern "Yankee" candidates trailed Clinton by double digits.
