Working in Kentucky this week, I’ve been listening to Lexington’s Westwood One conservative talk radio station in the car on my way to and from work- and it’s been pretty eye opening.
I mean- I already knew that Hillary is hated by every right-leaning person and that some conservatives were against McCain as the nominee- but I didn’t realize these people were so SERIOUS about it.
For example, Bill O’Reilly took a call from a guy who said he’d never vote for McCain because John isn’t a real conservative. The guy said he might even switch over and vote for Obama if the Republicans nominated McCain. Of course, when asked about Hillary he admitted he might actually have to vote for McCain if she was nominated.
I know we can’t count on getting a lot of conservative voters switching over to vote against McCain- but we can at least hope they’ll stay home.
And, according to a poll conducted by Laura Ingraham, that’s exactly what they might do if McCain is nominated. When asked “Will you consider sitting out this election if John McCain is the nominee?”, 54% of Ingraham’s conservative listeners answered Yes.
Of course, this assumes Hillary doesn’t become our nominee. If that happens, then all bets are off.
Conservatives hate Hillary and WILL come out to the polls just to vote against her.
And why do they hate her?
Well- they all have different reasons, I suppose.
Dennis Miller took a call from a guy who claimed he could never vote for Hillary Clinton because she stole all the furniture from the white house – he claimed to have friends who drive the trucks carrying the furniture.
Now THAT’S a new one.
