NOTE: I apologize for the crappy formatting on this post. I'm using tables for the poll data, and it has left a ton of white space on screen. Frowny Face...

Here's an interesting poll from Gallup. It asks Republicans and Democrats which nominees are acceptable and which are not.

Some of the Democrat numbers are interesting. More Democrats would find Howard Dean an unacceptable candidate. Even though the Dean Scream will stay in our hearts forever, it appears that he'll never be the President of the United States.

But... Wesley Clark's numbers are somewhat close to Dean's. I would've thought Clark would be considered acceptable, but I guess not. Denis Kucinich's numbers are not surprising. But a 20% acceptability rating is a bit higher than I'd expect with regard to Kucinich's crunchy Granola factor. I guess we'll probably never see a Dean/Kucinich Presidential ticket, but maybe a groovy Ben & Jerry's ice cream is possible.

John Edwards seems to be the most acceptable, least hated candidate. He's slightly ahead of both Gore and Clinton.

On the Republican side, here are the numbers I found interesting. John McCain is somewhat acceptable, but his not acceptable numbers are high. But they aren't as high as Jeb's or Cheney's. It's almost like the Republican base is rejecting the current administration. Will history reject him, too?
