No, it doesn’t really mean anything this far out, but it is interesting to read and pick over. New York is quite blue though and, for some god awful reason, Hillary remains popular. She’s even popular among weak Republicans of which there are many. People I know here (in upstate New York) who have voted Republican all their lives seem to flock to her.
I think people like the “idea” of Hillary rather than Hillary herself.
Hot Air also had some discussion of the thumping McCain and Giuliani seem to take from Hillary.
