I was checking out the polls for the 2008 presidential election the
other day and couple interesting things struck me. The one I'll
mention here is how dramatically Al Gore's standing has improved in the
past year. Here's the data from pollingreport.com:
A year ago, both McCain and Giulani trounced Al Gore, but had much smaller leads over Hillary Clinton. Now, at least in trial heats, Al Gore seems to be equally as strong a candidate as Hillary. A pretty dramatic change. I think it is safe to say that “An Inconvenient Truth” (in addition to being a really good movie) has done wonders for his image. It really is too early to speculate much about 2008, but Republicans should feel good about these polls. On the other hand, there is no way, the pro-choice Giulani wins the Republican primaries.
