Twenty Eight Percent of Dems Would Vote for McCain

Only days before Super Tuesday's primary, Michelle Obama told the media that she "would have to think about supporting Clinton if she [were] the nominee."

Obama also claimed that Hillary Clinton's supporters would vote for him in the general but unfortunately for the 'bitch that won't quit,' the same was not true of her.

"I am confident I will get her votes if I'm the nominee. It's not clear she would get the votes I got if she were the nominee."
Of course, media elites bobbed their heads up and down for months and repeated the mantra with electromechanical certainty.

Hillary was bound to lose independents in the general election; all those wonderful Reagan Democrats that Obama had lovingly brought back into the Dem fold would never vote for her.

Never mind that Obama didn't exactly win over Reagan Democrats as evidenced by his loss in Ohio, Arkansas, Texas and Tennesee. Shhh, don't ruffle the media meme.


Now as usual, conventional wisdom is being bitch slapped by conventional reality. AGAIN.

"A sizable proportion of Democrats would vote for John McCain next November if he is matched against the candidate they do not support for the Democratic nomination," the pollsters at Gallup report this morning. "This is particularly true for Hillary Clinton supporters," they add, "more than a quarter of whom currently say they would vote for McCain if Barack Obama is the Democratic nominee."
A whopping 28 percent of Hillary supporters indicated "they would vote for Republican Sen. McCain in the general election if Sen. Obama ends up being the Democratic presidential nominee."

And although 19 percent of Obama supporters claimed they could not support Hillary, folks, that's still a 9 percent gap, with only a 2 percent margin of error.

So for all you Obamamaniacs, here's your next assignment, should you choose to accept it. Spin, spin away the latest poll and keep trying to knock Hillary out of the race.
