Who to Invite for Memorial Day? Obama, Clinton or McCain?

John McCain and Barack Obama are in a dead heat – when it comes to who voters would like to chat with at a Memorial Day picnic, according to a Quinnipiac University poll conducted May 8-12. No kidding. Thirty-five percent chose Obama, 33 percent chose McCain and Hillary Clinton would rate an invite from only 27 percent. The margin of error is 2.4 percent so Clinton is statistically less likeable. Men much prefer the company of McCain, while women would opt for either Democrat.

Maurice Carroll, director of Quinnipiac’s poll, said, “Sen. Hillary Clinton has downed a few shots and beers recently to show she’s a regular gal, but American voters would rather hang out with the guys.”
