Voters Want McCain to Answer The Call

Rasmussen Reports finds most voters said John McCain is the person they’d most want to answer the phone in the White House when a foreign policy crisis arrived.

Which candidate would be best President to answer a foreign policy crisis call?
John McCain - 42%
Hillary Clinton - 25%
Barack Obama - 25%

This is why Hillary's "experience" argument makes no sense. Senator McCain is by far the most experienced candidate, and the voters know it:

Among Republicans, 79% named McCain while neither Democrat reached double digits.

Among unaffiliated voters, 39% said McCain would be their top choice to handle such a crisis. Twenty-seven percent (27%) of unaffiliateds said they thought Obama was the best to handle the call while 18% named Clinton.

Among men, 51% preferred McCain, 21% Obama, and 19% Clinton. Women were evenly divided—33% for McCain and 30% for each of the Democrats.

Even Obama's senior foreign policy advisor, Susan Rice, said that neither Democrat was prepared to take that 3:00 a.m. call. Watch the following Video:

Only Democrats prefer that Hillary answer the call - 46% said they’d like Hillary to take that call, while 36% prefer Obama.
