Is Romney the Weakest of the Possibly Republican Nominees?
Average difference in races between Clinton or Obama and Republican
McCain . . . . +3 Percent
Giuliani . . . . -8.8 percent
Huckabee . . -9.3 percent
Thompson . . -9.75 percent
Romney . . . . -13.9 percent
Between Clinton and Obama it isn't even close. Obama is a much stronger candidate than Hillary. I haven't figured out the average difference but it looks like about 7 percent on average. Plus every Republican would apparently lose to Obama. One warning with all these numbers is that the general election is a long ways away, but these are big differences.
