      Now I have examined the figures. New York State is a Democrat stronghold. Kerry beat Bush in 2004 in New York by 18%
      The poll says McCain-Rice wins by 3% in New York State which makes a 21% swing to the Republicans. Imagine now a 21% swing to McCain-Rice compared to Bush-Cheney ...
      To put this in perspective, if McCain-Rice did 21% better in all states compared to Bush-Cheney in 2004, what states would the Democrats win, if they couldn't even win in their democrat stronghold of New York State?
      Come on people do the math! The answer I think is -

      McCain-Rice 2008 - 46 states won easy

      Clinton-Obama 2008 - 4 states won maximum

      The Democrats would only win -
      D.C., Massachusetts - if they were lucky they might win Rhode Island and Vermont as well.
      Against McCain - Rice, the Democrats would win 2 states for sure, maybe 4 in total, not much more.
      All the other states would be won by McCain - Rice, assuming the swing of 21% to McCain-Rice.

      The Rice boost to the ticket.

      McCain-Rice is trusted by the voters of left and right and 21% more in New York State than Bush-Cheney was trusted.
      Please people MATH, MATH, MATH.
      Look at the evidence of the poll and understand that McCain-Rice would be a landslide victory for the republicans.
      The Democrats - Dean and the Democrat High Command - are betting everything on the GOP not being able to do the math.
      If you can understand the math, and that poll is correct, then McCain-Rice is a LANDSLIDE victory in all states apart from a few.
      Why choose a running mate who only adds one or two states to the ticket - when Condi adds almost ALL STATES to the ticket.

      Poll: McCain-Rice ticket wins in New York

      Published: April 10, 2008 at 7:11 AM
      POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y., April 10 (UPI) -- A Republican ticket featuring John McCain and Condoleezza Rice could be a winner in the Democratic stronghold of New York, a poll suggests.

      The Marist College-WNBC poll indicates a ticket featuring the Arizona senator and the U.S. secretary of state would upend a Democratic presidential ticket of Sens. Hillary Clinton of New York and Barack Obama of Illinois by 3 points, 49 percent to 46 percent, and an Obama-Clinton ticket by 5 points, 49 percent to 44 percent, the college said in a news release.

      The poll comes just days after a leading Republican strategist suggested Rice is working behind the scenes to be on the ticket with McCain, the GOP presumptive nominee, despite Rice's statements to the contrary, CNN reported.

      The Marist-WNBC poll indicated a close head-to-head race with either Democratic presidential nomination contender and McCain. Clinton has support from 48 percent of the respondents, compared with 46 percent for McCain. Obama receives support from 46 percent of the voters, while 48 percent said they favored McCain.

      The survey interviewed 576 registered New York voters April 3-4 and has a sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points, the Poughkeepsie, N.Y., college said.



      Story Bottom
      April 10, 2008 -- ALBANY - A Republican presidential ticket of John McCain and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice would beat a Democratic ticket of Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama - in either combination - in heavily "blue" New York, a surprising poll showed yesterday.
      The Marist College-WNBC survey found a McCain-Rice team ahead of a Clinton-Obama ticket, 49 percent to 46 percent, and an Obama-Clinton ticket, 49 percent to 44 percent.
      Without including a hypothetical running mate, the poll found McCain ahead of Obama, 48 percent to 46 percent, but trailed New Yorker Clinton, 48 percent to 46 percent.
      "It is quite shocking and it really speaks to how much the Democratic primary battle is spilling over to the electorate," said Marist pollster Lee Miringoff.
      "It doesn't mean the Republicans are going to carry New York in November, but it does mean the Democrats are being hurt right now and would be well advised to bring down the curtain on their battle as soon as possible," Miringoff continued.

       A McCain-Rice ticket could carry New York, a new poll says.
      A McCain-Rice ticket could carry New York, a new poll says.
      (CNN) – Condoleezza Rice has said she has no desire to be John McCain's running mate, but a new poll out Wednesday suggests that duo could beat the Democratic ticket in the bluest of states.
      In a new poll conducted by Marist College and WNBC, a McCain-Rice ticket would beat a ticket that includes both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in New York — a state that reliably votes for the Democratic candidate. (In 2004, John Kerry beat President Bush there by nearly 20 points. In 2000, the margin between Al Gore and Bush was an even higher 25 points.)
      But should McCain and Rice team up, the poll suggests the two Republicans would carry New York, defeating a Clinton-Obama ticket by 3 points (49-46 percent) and an Obama-Clinton ticket by 5 points (49-44 percent.)
      The poll comes days after a leading Republican strategist suggested Rice, contrary to her own public statements, is engaging in a behind-the-scenes campaign to land a spot on McCain's ticket. Former Bush administration official Dan Senor made the suggestion on ABC Sunday, noting Rice's recent appearance at the weekly meeting of Americans for Tax Reform — a leading organization of Republican insiders — as evidence she is attempting to cozy up to the conservative elite.
      That suggestion immediately had Beltway insiders speculating on the potential advantages Rice would deliver, especially in light of the fact the Democratic presidential ticket will either feature a woman or an African-American for the first time in American history.
      Rice herself attempted to put the speculation to rest Tuesday, saying, "I very much look forward to watching this campaign and voting as a voter — I have a lot of work to do and then I'll happily go back to Stanford."
      But with polls like this, it's likely some Republicans hope she reconsiders.
