The next President of the United States
-Headline of the day-
"Kucinich would beat Palin, Trump in hypothetical races: Poll."
Sure, Donald Trump dropped out, but a poll was in the field while he was still a maybe-candidate and it shows that The Donald quit while the quitting was good. Sarah Palin, a consumate quitter herself, might consider following Don's example.
A Public Policy Polling survey [pdf] put the two potential candidates up against Dennis Kucinich -- the longest of Democratic long shots -- in head-to-head matches to see how things would turn out. For Trump and Palin, the turning out was not well.
According to the report, "The outspoken anti-war liberal would rout Palin by 43 to 36 percent, and beat Trump 40 to 36 percent," with the rest undecided because they didn't know who the hell this "Dennis Kucinich" guy was.
Run Sarah, run! (Raw Story)
