    Thank you for the information. I didn't click on the link. I figure there will be another 30,000 or so of these to come and I didn't want to get survey fatigue too early. :wavey:

    He/she who gets the most corporate campaign contributions wins. Might be more accurate to judge by the money rather than the polls.

    Salty, those are the really important numbers. Also it is far, far, far too early to become excited or depressed over numbers.

    Don't think so. Wendy Davis had a lot more money in her coffers than her opponent, and she lost, most heinously.

    Absolutely!

    But when it comes to the Party primaries, I would like to see two things:

    1) Closed primary to party members only
    2) Institute either Approval or Instant Runoff voting

    Don't sweat it we all get things wrong. Except for neocons they're always right.

    There must be at least one politician who was victorious, even after being grossly out-funded.

    I don't think Clinton is going to get the nomination. Everyone knew in 2006 that Hilary was going to be the DNC candidate for 2008. Just like everyone knows in 2015 she is going to be the candidate for 2016. If I had to guess who I think its actually going to be on the Democratic Ticket I would say its going to be Elizabeth Warren not Hilary. And I have no idea on the Republican side but as long as its not Romney or Bush or Cristie I will be happy.

    She says she is not "Currently" running which is true as no one is Currently running. She will run. Hillary will not be unopposed in this primary season.
