Favorite Sons and Daughters, 2008 from the most recent AEI Political Corner.
|Q: Would make a good president . . . ?||Yes||No|
|Arizona voters||John McCain||48%||42%|
|Georgia voters||Newt Gingrich||30||63|
|Illinois voters||Barack Obama||64||29|
|Massachusetts voters||Mitt Romney||31||65|
|Massachusetts voters||John Kerry||25||71|
|New York voters||Hillary Clinton||57||39|
|New York voters||Rudy Giuliani||46||51|
This is probably meaningless but fun. Amusing points:
- McCain is the highest of the GOPers in his home state, which is actually a red state, unlike the others.
- Obama is the highest of the Dems in his home state.
- Clinton beats Giuliani in NY.
- Romney beats Kerry in MA. Good for him. But Romney probably looses to McCain in his own state, so I wonder what that means…
