ChristiaNet 2008 Presidential Poll

HOUSTON, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 28, 2006 -- (, the world's largest Christian portal with twelve million monthly page loads, recently gathered opinions about potential 2008 Presidential candidates. In a closed poll of 681 registered Christian voters, ChristiaNet asked voters who they would and absolutely would not vote for in the upcoming Presidential elections. Those participating could select from three democratic possibilities, three republican possibilities, or place a vote of uncertainty, if undecided. (

Most polled voted in favor of the Republicans with a 53% approval. Interestingly, the number of unsure voters outweighed the Democratic presidential heavy-hitters. Those unsure of their choice of candidate ranked in at 25%. Democratic potentials received only 22% of the votes among those polled.

The possible Republican candidate choices were Jeb Bush, Rudolph Giuliani, and John McCain. Bush received 44% of the votes; Giuliani and McCain each received 28%. The Democratic candidate choices included Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, and John Kerry. Clinton received 53% of the votes as the Democratic candidate hopeful, with Gore at 26% and Kerry trailing at 21%.

When pollers responded to the question of who they would not vote for, Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush were, once again, the forerunners. Seventeen percent of those polled indicated that they would not vote for Jeb Bush and 46% of pollers stated opposition towards Hillary Clinton. Results from a recent Gallup Poll support the polarized views. "All in all, the public is just about as likely... to come up with positive views of Clinton as they are to come up with negative views," Gallup reported in a survey conducted June 26-29.

Giuliani received the least amount of unfavorable votes at 2.5%. Based on his low negative scores, Rudy Giuliani still has an opportunity to define himself to the American people. Giuliani could prove to be a contender come election time.

"With the surprising revelation that 25% were unsure about who they would vote for in the 2008 Presidential elections, there is still room for political maneuvers by each of the potential candidates," stated Bill Cooper,'s President. Though results indicate that Bush and Clinton are the most widely known, preliminary election climates are very unstable! For more information visit,
