Fred Thompson Out-Helps McCain
With Fred out, many are wondering who will benefit. The WAPO touches on this here.
... The Post's last national poll suggests that McCain may gain a very slight boost from Thompson's departure. If Thompson is eliminated and his supporters' second choices are re-allocated, that poll showed McCain leading the Republican field with 30% -- 2% higher than he received with Thompson included in the ballot test. The only other candidate to make gains with the reallocation of Thompson supporters was Giuliani, who went from 15% with Thompson in to 18% with him out.
Interesting. Read the entire post. Helps McCain they say...Who would have thought..I think it is a little early to conclude any results.
