A Case For Fred Dalton Thompson

Why Fred Thompson? We think Joe Colvin might be on to something...

  1. There is no clear-cut favorite: A large percentage of the Bush fund-raising team remains uncommitted, a signal that the Republican establishment is not satisfied with the present field seeking the party's nomination.
  2. Fred Thompson is strongest in the GOP South: 51% of his supporters are from the South or Southwest, his strongest region and a key to the GOP primary and nomination.
  3. Thompson's support among independents points to a formidable general election candidate: 33% of supporters identify themselves as "independents who lean Republican," the highest percentage in the field.
Here's looking forward to July 4th!
