More Proof: Hillary Wins, Obama Loses

Yet one more poll, this one from Quinnipiac University showing Hillary Clinton beating McCain in key swing states; and yep, Obama loses.
Plagued by a defection of Clinton supporters and white working class voters, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, the leading Democratic presidential contender, trails Arizona Sen. John McCain, the likely Republican candidate, in Florida and Ohio, according to simultaneous Quinnipiac University Swing State polls released
today. Sen. Obama is six points ahead in Pennsylvania. New York Sen. Clinton wins handily in all three states. No one has been elected President since 1960 without taking two of these three largest swing states in the Electoral College.
Earth to Obamatrons, give up the fight for the good of the party. Please stop insisting that superdelegates vote for your guy. Remember, you promised to abide by the will of the sacred voters, the same bunch you kept blabbing about on and on 24/7 until you realized that Barky was likely to come up short on the vote total.

The numbers for Florida and Ohio are good news for Sen. John McCain and should be worrisome for Sen. Barack Obama. That is especially true about Ohio, which decided the 2004 election. Ohio's economy is worse than the rest of the country and the Republican brand there is in disrepute. McCain's Buckeye lead may be a sign that nationally this may not be the easy Democratic walk to the White House that many expected," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
Worrisome??? Obama should be quivering in his unity seat right about now.

Looking back at the Hillary/Obama slugfest, Howling Latina can't help but recall how netroots sweetheart Leslie Byrne supported Hillary during the Virginia Democratic presidential primary; and how in running against Fairfax County Executive Gerry Connolly, Byrne was enthusiastically endorsed by Sen. Jim Webb, Emily's List, Blue Majority and the blogosphere; and how Gov.Tim Kaine endorsed Fairfax Board of Supervisor Chairman Gerry Connolly; and how Kaine also endorsed Sen. Barack Obama; and how Webb has steadfastly refused to commit to Obama; very likely it is that Webb favors Hillary over Obama because he knows that Obama is not the strongest candidate to against McCain -- the decisive factor as explicated by Webb in an earlier inteview on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos."

H/T Talk Left.
