Answering the Red Phone

Hillary Clinton’s famous television ad suggested that if the telephone rang in the White House at 3 a.m., she would be better equipped to answer it, and deal with the implicit crisis, than Barack Obama. It occurred to many Republicans, of course, that John McCain would inspire a lot more confidence under those circumstances than either Obama or Clinton.
Now, Scott Rasmussen has done a poll. It turns out that Republicans aren’t the only ones with more confidence in McCain:

McCain beats Obama by 12 points among voters with no party affiliation (interestingly, Clinton does much worse with this group). Among men, McCain beats Obama by 30 points and Clinton by 32.
