Gallup's Dem vs McCain Demographics


New analysis from Gallup looks at data collected among 19,076 registered voters between 3/7 through 3/29 and finds:

"Obama's strength is his appeal to black voters, and his somewhat greater appeal than Clinton's to independents and Republicans. On the other hand, although Clinton attracts the support of a lower percentage of blacks than Obama, she has a stronger appeal to white Democrats, particularly white conservative Democrats, only half of whom at this point say they would vote for Obama if he were the nominee pitted against McCain."

@rs/really truly true/

thank you so much for your polite posts and guidelines for deciphering wonderfully turgid posts.

needless to say, facts will have out despite pre-announcements that your candidate has been
anointed. from your lips to howard dean's ear.

BTW remember Bush on his big boat with his grandiose pre-announcement of the war's end???

sadly, this kind of wishful thinking is characteristic of the magico-religious diatribe your band of loopy activists SHOUT all over the web.

"A Dem president is useless without a heavily Dem Congress to pass Obama's legislation."

forgive me, but why should the great obama require a democrat weighted congress if he had big plans to "make change and unite." ??

i suggest that it has recently dawned on you that as yet the constitution has not been tweaked (sadly) and he will have to work with it. sigh.

and as you have proudly trumpeted his unique unifying abilities, why not just relax and let the magician go to work with a republican congress and finesse them. now that would certainly prove your and his point, wouldn't it?

then he would deserve the moniker "uniter. leader of change". if it's all dems in congress, , where's the genius in that?

i suspect that the above data as it continues to flow in is a bit of a rude awakening in the after blush of so many latte victories particularly with the prospect of kentucky, oregon, PA, WV and Indiana causing a little gas as the foamy milk goes down.

i might just vote for mccain to make sure sure that obama has the opportunity to show us his magical skills in uniting AMerica, crossing the aisle, bringing change. Gee, maybe it's you folks who should have written my posts about updating the consitution. that's the only way
obama'll get anything passed..

@lsmakc:

Touche - the true test of President Obama as a uniter will come only with a GOP-controlled Congress.
But how does your voting for a McCain presidency enable that test? If you really wanted to ensure Senator Obama has a chance to prove his uniting skills, here's what you should do:
Vote for President Obama
Vote for down-ticket Republicans.

Deal? ;-)

I still haven't figured out why you bitch and moan about the federalist constitution. After all, it's the federal nature of things that enables Massachusetts to allow gay marriage, and attempt universal health care... Oh wait - it's because your candidate is losing! So - let's amend the constitution!

@rs, uhhh, you kinda got fuzzy here.

big government ie BIG use of THAT document and its flexibility is the rabbit your candidate wants to pull out of his hat:overhaul this/that across the states.

so be consistent: if you want states right for gay this or health care that or primary here and caucus there -- this is classic tacking right to republican and small document.

your obama wants BIG document. why not take a breather and get your ducks in a row before you start sputtering.

i know, i know, it's tough reconciling so many disparate and confounding elements coming from the mouth of one single human being. makes yuh crazy, no? he's probably got a crib sheet on his hand just trying to keep things straight. problem is, they cant be lined up, they are flying at cross purposes just like your zany post!! :)))) :)))

Ummm.... Not quite sure where you are going with this. Still, I feel so proud to call him MY Obama... getting a tingly feeling all over!

I don't know where you got the idea that reliance on the Constitution equates to Big Government. The Constitution guarantees the right to free speech and equal voting rights, among many other things - that definitely isn't Republican or Democrat. Are you saying Senator Clinton is against the Constitution and the freedoms enshrined therein? Egads - no wonder people don't like her!

Besides, I think Republicans have the better track record at expanding the federal bureaucracy, no?
