Thompson is Edwards (7% more than Obama)

The Ranking for “Margins of Victory”
(aka. Win, Place, or Show for you Horse Race fans )

Contest 1st 2nd 3rd
Dem vs Giuliani: Edwards 8% Obama 1% Clinton -3%
Dem vs Huckabee: Edwards 17% Obama 9% Clinton 8%
Dem vs McCain: Edwards 7% Obama 6% Clinton 2%
Dem vs Romney: Edwards 16% Clinton 11% Obama 9%
Dem vs Thompson: Edwards 14% Obama 7% Clinton 4%

What more do you need to know. Neither Obama nor Clinton can match Edwards when it comes to winning against the real enemy….Republicans.

And given Senator Edwards solid progressive plans for real change which this nation so desperately needs, right track/wrong track is extremely negative, what are you waiting for! Get behind Edwards and push!
