Obama Support Softens
Buyers remorse...? Nah, perish the thought!
Say what???? Hillary bests Obama in a face to face match with McCain...? How can that be??? Media pundits and bloggers have been telling us over and over, 24/7, that Hillary can't win.
The poll showed that Mr. Obama now leads Senator John McCain of Arizona, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, 47 percent to 42 percent; his lead was 50 percent to 38 percent in late February...The latest poll shows Mrs. Clinton leading Mr. McCain, 48 percent to 43 percent, in a similar match-up.
Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Obama are now effectively tied among Democratic voters, with 46 percent saying they want the party to nominate Mr. Obama, compared with 43 percent for Mrs. Clinton. In late February, 54 percent of Democrats said they wanted Mr. Obama to win the nomination, compared with 38 percent for Mrs. Clinton.
Just today at the Warrenton library, the howler was chitchatting with a local librarian about this and that when wham, like a bolt of lightning, she learned that Hillary cannot win without the support of superdelegates.
Wow, here all this time she thought that it was equally true of Obama, but apparently not.
Talk about a dog and pony show to go with the horse manure from MSNBC. The interesting aspect about all this is how voters came to believe that Hillary was out of contention. And how in spite of it, she still leads McCain by a wider margin than Obama.
Folks, the New York Times/CBS News poll is ugly.
