New Poll: Clinton Trails All Five Republicans in General Election

A new Zogby poll has some sobering news for democrats. In a general election match-up, Sen. Hillary Clinton trails all five likely republican candidates-Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, Fred Thompson, Mike Huckabee, and McCain- while both Edwards and Obama lead all five. Read more here.

This is not the first poll that has pointed to Clinton's general election problems. Her negatives have always been high. She has had consistent problems with making the "electability" argument. We have three supreme court justices on the line, folks. Don't we need to nominate the candidate who has the best shot at actually defeating the republican nominee? Looks to me as if either Edwards or Obama would stand a better shot than Clinton.

I am not sure about Zogby polls because the population for these polls consists of people who have opted in to take polls from Zogby,i.e. like signed up on their webside as I did. This method of selecting the population may have a certain amount of bias built in, as compared to a randomly selected group.
