MLAs for Hillary?
The political consultants Stratagem have conducted a survey of more than 50 MLAs together with a London polling company, ComRes. They asked the politicians to name their favourite candidate in the US Presidential Race.
32% backed Hillary Clinton
29% backed John McCain
22% backed Barack Obama
Apparently McCain was the favourite amongst DUP MLAs, Obama amongst Sinn Fein MLAs, whilst Hillary Clinton drew support across the board.
Somehow, though, I think she'd swop any number of MLAs for just one Democrat superdelegate.
The survey also asked the MLAs to name their who had been their greatest political influence.
Ian Paisley topped the poll, followed by Margaret Thatcher, then Martin Luther King.
Other figures who featured included the former SDLP Leader John Hume, the former UUP Leader Lord Trimble, the Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness, Bobby Sands, Edward Carson and the future First Minister Peter Robinson.
