Andrew:

But I thought the super-electable post-partisan Obama would attract Obamacans (Republicans for Obama) and would go on to easily win the presidential elections.

We should be trying to find a name for the new McCain Democrats instead.

John - Spokane, WA:


Thanks for the updated polls - Its shows just what I Thought, A huge downturn for Obama. Just a few days ago he had a 6 or 7 point NTL lead - that is cut half and continues to drop almost hourly. Obama is now TRAILING McCAIN in a GE - Hillary Leads McCain in a GE. You can disect the demos all you want but the bottom line is that Obama is on his way out.

____________________

Andrew:

John, Clinton doesn't lead McCain. They are tied.

John - Spokane, WA:


Your right Andrew, I was looking at the Arkansas Poll on the 13th - But she's doing much better than Obama is vs. McCain .

____________________

scoop:

Put away the Koolaide John, Obama just gained new delegates in Iowa and is picking up new Super Delegages almost daily. It's still going to be a tough fight no matter who wins.

Jonathan:

Who can support a guy that attends a radical black church that hates white people. If the dems are stupid enough to give him the nod, then the 527's will chew him up. I think he would loose every single state, even illinois. Obama should quit for the good of the party. More jeremiah wright tapes are coming, stay tuned.

____________________

Mike in CA:

The only reason that McCain leads Obama nationally is that Obama has not yet campaigned nationally. We see that everywhere he goes, his numbers usually go up anywhere from 10 to 30 points. Thus, once he starts campaigning nationally, we can expect him to move well beyond McCain and win a landslide like 1964 or 1984, but bigger.

____________________

John - Spokane, WA:


Your right Jonathon, Scoop is just wearing Rosey Glasses. Obama, even when he was at Peak, only won Iowa by ONE delegate - Iv'e seen nothing to show that he's garnering support ANYWHERE right now. Everybody knows Iowa is just a stepchild of Illinois anyways, The Iowa Cubs, etc... If he's looking to Iowa to save his butt he's sadley mistaken. Its PA, MI, FL, WV, IN & KY that are coming to the plate - Iowa means about 0 in the scope of things.

____________________

John - Spokane, WA:

Lets see then MIKE in CA - According to your logic, since Hillary is already tied - then she goes flying past McCain when she starts Campaigning. Obama has lost the trust of anyone paying attention and you know it. You wont admit it but you know it. Not only has the Obama Bandwagon lost its wheels, its flipped upside down and broke into a million peices - They're all on foot now about to watch Hillary ride off with the nomination !

Mike in CA:

Obama got 10 more delegates in Iowa because he worked hard for them and respects the good people of that state. They got to know him and rewarded him with 10 extra delegates at the county conventions. Deal with it Johnny or Jon.

____________________

Mike in CA:

The point I was making John or Jon is that people do not yet know Barack Obama on a national level. How else can you explain that he wins by 20% when he campaigns in a state, but is tied or trails nationally? Simple, it's that people nationwide do not yet know him. He will get upwards of 63% of the popular vote nationwide given his ability to outperform polls and his numbers go up 10-30 percent when he campaigns someplace, this place, nationally.

John - Spokane, WA:

@ Mike,

Also know as "Moderator" !! LOL - I have always posted under one name because unlike you, I dont hide behind the guises of alias's. So... you didnt catch anything other than a case of Obama fever ! AND he is not up 10 delegates in Iowa - sorry. look at your delegate count again and make sure you get your calculator out so you can count all 40 or so delegates that they have there ! LOL
I dont know who Jonathon is - but I like what he said. Hey Maybe, your boy Obama could drop out of the Dem Party since he likes to listen to how this is a "God Damn Nation" and he could run on the Black Panther Party ticket with his good buddy REV WRIGHT !!

____________________

Nickberry:

According to the polls... Obama is losing the argument on electability against McCain. The focus on Pennsylvania will only emphasize that Hillary is gaining strength... and a go-ahead with a revote in Michigan and Florida will most likely also benefit her. And this in turn will help her in the remaining primaries: Indiana, North Carolina, West Virginia, Montana, South Dakota, Puerto Rico, Guam, and Kentucky. (I will give Oregon to Obama.)

Hanging your hat on a handful of additional delegates from Iowa will not change today's situation and future outcomes... But Obama's blunders and personal issues with his mentors and friend will.

Mikey,

The only States Obama has won by large margins like that are small states and most of those (Like Wyoming, Idaho & Utah) are all going republican anyways - so again, he brings nothing to a GE ticket. EVEN LESS THan That now !!

Jordan Davies:

Jonathan: maybe if you were black and your ancestors were slaves you might not like white people either. Maybe if you understood that slavery was legal in this country for over 200 years, and that those slaves were African American, you might reconsider your position. Barack Obama does not hate anybody. But you do. What Reverend Wright is saying is that still in this day there is racism and you are one who is happy to promote it. Are you afraid that an African American president might take away your rights and make you a slave?

Mike in CA... I think you are deluding yourself. Obama wins by big measures in states where there are caucuses, and not as you stated where he has had time to campaign. For example, in Ohio Obama outspent Hillary 2 to 1 and still lost by 10 percentage points.

Why can't you idiots understand??

PEOPLE HATE CLINTON!!!!!

She has to win by 90-10 margins to overtake Obama. By the way, she isn't winning Montana or South Dakota, or North Carolina or Indiana.


You know what you should do though, keep donating to camp Ferraro, I mean Camp Clinton. You got a real winner there!

@ Jordan,

Do your homework Jordy, just because its not pointed at black people, doesnt mean its not racist. Besides, Im Irish American, DID YOU KNOW THAT THE IRISH WERE ENSLAVED IN FAR GREATER NUMBERS IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY FOR CENTURIES ? look it up, google "History of Irish Slavery " YES ALL THE TORTURES, ALL THE GENICIDE AND NEAR ERRATICATION OF THE IRISH POPULATION MORE THAN WITH AFRICANS - SO dont hand me your sob story with the Idea the World owes you something over something that happened over 150 years ago of which you nor your parents were affected by it - the longer you use this as a crutch in society the worse it gets for you. Hey, the English almost eliminated my people (2/3 of Irish pop) - I dont walk around being pissed off at the English, in fact I have English friends, Its OLD NEWS, IT HAPPENNED OVER CENTURY AGO - GET OVER IT. IT WAS A SAD TIME IN OUR NATIONS HISTORY BUT ONE THAT IS BEST LEFT IN THE PAST, I LET GO, WHY CANT YOU ??

____________________

Rod:


1) Obama will have the pledged delegate lead - even if FL and MI are counted as they stand right now (which would be against the rulebook). Right now, including FL and MI, he still leads in over 50 pledged delegates

2) Unless Clinton gets a miracle, Obama will have the popular vote lead. Even counting FL and MI as they stand right now, he leads her by over 75,000 votes counting MS. And he is favored to win 6-7 of the next 10

3) Obama has won more states than Clinton

The only area he isn't winning in is "super delegates" - which he has picked up many more in the past month than Clinton - and is only 36 away from her (according to Real Clear Politics) - with 338 still left to decide. Even if the rest break at the same percentage as they have so far - he will have the required total delegates to win the nomination when adding in the projected pledged delegates in the coming contests.

It is CLINTON'S campaign that has tried to push this "popular vote" message that could give them the leverage with "super delegates" NOT Obama or his supporters. It is the CLINTON campaign that is wanting to find a back door to win - because if we follow the rules as they stand right now - Obama will be the victor.

4. Obama - Patronized Anti-American REV WRight who Blames America & Americans for 911 and declares "GOD DAMN AMERICA"

5. Obama - Prior to the Presidential election made no bones of his church's affiliation with Farrakahn.

6. Obama - LIED To America in his AC interview when he claims he never knew of the sermons being made by Wright

Most of the insane trolling will be gone when they have the authentication up and running. That will be soon.

In the meantime, let's not engage in trolling. We all know the talking points of the candidates and there's little point in repeating them.

What this poll shows us, I believe, is that negative campaigning for the Democrats only weakens both of them for the long run, an observation I can only call a "Duh!".

Those of you who are here to support McCain can, by all means, whip up one or more of the Democrat camps. Those of you who are Democrats and participate in this have had all of your arguments refuted by the poll above. Please look at it, as it does lead this thread. Thanks.

George:

The disturbing comments on this blog from Obama supporters illustrate exactly what's wrong with his candidacy. Although Obama supporters like to compare his "movement" to that of JFK or Robert Kennedy, those past movements joined people around ideals of better behavior. In Obama's ranks, all I see are rancororous followers gone amok, capable of the worst cruelty to other candidates and their supporters. Where are the tolerance and restraint essential to "unity?" Those Wright tapes exemplify the narrow views and disdain for others rife in the Obama camp. Obama is the most divisive candidate to appear in the Democratic party in the last 50 years. He is ruining all hope of a Democratic victory in the fall by constantly playing the race card -- just like his mentor. The American public is slowly catching on.

____________________

George:

I meant "rancorous" in the above post.

michael:

It seems like Obama peaked some time in February, and has declined in competitiveness since. See, when the media is being critical because he is the front-runner, Obama doesn't do so well. Moreover, I think what we are seeing is the emergence of new cleavages.

McCain and Obama, are somewhat post-partisan, and at least reduce the salience of ideological cleavages with their rhetoric (if not their voting records). But in terms of class and race, Clinton is actually the unity candidate.

That is, working class "Reagan democrats", and white swing voters prefer Clinton to Obama. So Clinton and Obama do well among different kinds of swing voters (although I would argue that Clinton's are more strategically situated).

For some reason, some guy has decided to adopt my signature of "Mike in CA" -- just for clarification, I am NOT the guy who made all of the above posts (if anyone remembers me from past discussion boards). Pollster needs to come up with a system where you can register usernames.

The "Mike in CA" above is either unapologetically stealing my username, or innocently using it not knowing that I have been using it for months.

So, for anyone confused, there are two separate "Mike in CA"s, and I am the one who has posted on this site for several months (at least since January).

Anthony - Los Angeles, CA:

The campaigns always talk about playing by the rules, but they are trying to make new rules for the superdelegates. They are supposed to vote for whomoever they choose. If they were supposed to vote the way of the states or districts, then why not just give those states/districts an extra regular delegate. It makes no sense. It may be an imperfect system, but nevertheless, still the rules...one cannot argue that Mich/FL cannot be seated because of the rules and then try to create new rules for the supers. The new logic of both campaigns seems to be "whatever helps me win" even if it means disenfranchising voters or making up new rules. This is no longer a battle for delegates--it's a PR battle to see what they can get the public or superdelegates to believe despite the rules.

@Anthony
The rules were tossed out of the window the minute HRC appeared in Florida after her "victory" there. So why not continue to morph the process until not even Howard Dean knows what is going on. Heres the new rule book:

Rule 1: Every State (that favors HRC) should count and we should have as many elections there until we like the result

Rule 2: Caucuses shouldn't count unless HRC wins them; if BO wins they're activists, if HRC wins they're true patriots

Rule 3: Only registered democrats should determine the democratic nominee, hec only registered democrats should vote in the general election

Rule 4: If we (ie HRC) cant win the pledged delegates we should look at the popular vote only after excluding caucuses, WI, MO, IL or any other primary that BO won and then definitely exclude the democratic voters in Red/Purple/Swing states...and then follow Rule 3

____________________

George:

illinoisindie, The Democratic National Committee rules allow the states to determine the rules by which a state caucus or primary is run. By party rules, Michigan can hold a primary on or after Super Tuesday. It's planned June 3 primary is within the rules. It is necessary to only allow Democrats to vote in that primary, because now there will be no competing Republican party primary on the same date. Hence, Republicans, in swarms, could wreak havoc on the Democratic primary in Michigan if they are not restricted from voting. It was not against the rules for Hillary to appear in Florida after the primary in Florida. It is likely Hillary will win the popular vote, and Obama will be ahead in pledged delegates, by the time of the convention. The superdelegates have a right, by party rules, to vote however they want, and determine themselves what criteria to use in selecting their candidate. In fact, the purpose in creating the superdelegates was to have high-ranking party officials have an influence over the selection of the nominee independent of the popular vote or delegate count outcome. Your derogatory comments about Hillary above, do not derive from fact.

The tide is finally turning. I've heard that Edwards is going to endorse Clinton next week. I think he is finally making this move because he is a true American. Unlike most foolish liberals, he sees it right through Obama's fake agenda of unity but operating an Anti-American agenda in the background.

Alan:

I know that it is getting nasty out there. I will say straight up that I am a Clinton supporter and proud of it. Whatever the outcome of the nomination race, Senator Obama's resume does not compare to Senator Clinton's. The reason she is so hated by the press and Obama supporters is that she has fought for us. The Clintons come from the winning wing of the Democratic Party.

Obama's supporters have totally taken up the role played by the Republicans. All Clinton smears, all the time. Obama supporters are not rational people, that's why they support him.

I will never be persuaded by irrational people about anything. That's why I am a Democrat in the first place.

Obama supporters should go back to the party of irrationality-the Republicans.

I completely followed the point of your post which was that the rules were variable. I was just highlighting some of the other variable rules in the contest.The rule for the superdelegates is that they vote however they want, the point of my post was to show that since the other "rules" are in flux, why not the superdelegates now have a new rule too.

@George
I am fully aware of democratic party politics... I noticed you forgot the rule that Michigan and Florida being stripped of their delegates and not being seated. So I guess you should be okay with the re-vote but then their delegates still shouldnt get seated (because that is the rule right??). Or maybe the first rule had a caveat that we didnt know about...."Michigan and Florida will be stripped of their delegates Unless they have a revote after super Tuesday."
As for my "derogatory" points towards HRC, the activist comment came from "the horses mouth" so I guess she is degrading herself.

As for not allowing "others" in the democratic nomination process your party your "rules"...or maybe they are more like loose guidelines...

Let me show you that we arent irrational.
All Obama supporters go back to the republican party which would total 13.2 million votes so far, which gives Mc-Cain the election and Clinton no longer belongs to the "winning" party as you call it.
Do you really want Obama voters going to the republicans in NY NJ and CA... didnt think so.

Im glad to see people are finding out the truth about Obama - Its worth being called every rude & crude name in the book as long as truth prevails. No man that pretends to offer unity can justify in any way his patronage of more than 20 years to an Anti-American, Racist, Hate Monger like REV WRIGHT. The nitwit that used my name earlier today is nothing more than an agitator. Thats what some people resort when they have no defense of their feable positions.

maybe the reason this snapshot of a poll is favoring McCain is because while he is off in Europe shoring up his foreign policy credentials the democrats are here fighting over 2 candidates with 99% similarity in their policies. As I said leave it to the democrats to lose and un-loseable election

____________________

John - Spokane, WA:


The more we learn, the more seperable Clinton becomes away from Obama - the polls are already starting to show that. Obama would love to stay close in this race and try to sneak out a photo finish. With PA, MI, FL and others still ahead, Im sure we'll see the fall out of his recent unveilings. On to the Convention unless Hillary puts him away before then.

Here's The Republican Strategy;

1. Invade the Democratic Party & Vote for Obama to try to get him nominated.

2. If Obama gets nominated, McCain wins Big.

Either Dem canidate will beat McCain. 70% of the people in the US dislike the war and McCain has been quoted to know nothing about the economy. McCain is old and has no life to him and has so many vulnerabilities more than I'd say Obama does when it comes to core issues.

This will drag on but Obama is gaining all the superdelegates as the race drags on. Hillary would have to win Penn., NC, Mich, FL by 70% to say in this race and the number just aren't there.

All you are really going to have is these desperate Clintonists like "Obama is toast" that are trying to hype C+ News. Obama's transparency is relieving and the secrets of Hillary Clinton (tax returns, Hsu, ect.) are still largely kept secret to the American public since Obama has given Hillary a free pass since he has refused to engage in attack politics.

Obama's skeletons are laughable at best. I voted for Obama not Rev. Wright or Rezko. I would hope people would hold those people accountable for their actions and not pass blame on Obama.

This story has been out for 2 weeks if not longer now and there has been only a 4 point +/- fluctuation in Obama's National Polls. If this was really a scandal you'd see Spitzer like numbers (50% drop in approval). These numbers just aren't coming out. America could care less about Rev. Wright.

BHO is Done, finished:

More turn coat remarks coming from the BHO camp. The Nice Nice Nice candidate who was not gonna "GO NEGATIVE" is NOW going negative.

As more and more comes out about BHO he is showing that his New Politics of Change is the same same same as the old politics of Ted Kennedy and the OLD School that endorsed him.

Btw, where is Ted Kennedy and Oprah on the Rev Wright issue ? Ummm, they are kinda scare in appearance. Or are they, tooo, like the American People, distancing themselves from BHO ?

Obama prepares for full assault on Clinton
Contender to take aim at Clinton's ethics
PLAINFIELD, Ind. - Sen. Barack Obama is trying to air his dirty laundry -- even some items that might appear just a little wrinkled -- as he prepares a full assault on Sen. Hillary Clinton over ethics and transparency.

On Saturday he invoked Robert F. Kennedy as he continued to try to distance himself from controversial statements made by his former Chicago pastor that are circulating on the Internet.

With a gap between campaign contests, Obama is trying to unload controversies. On Friday he held extended conversations with the Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times about his longtime relationship with indicted developer and fundraiser Antoin "Tony" Rezko.

At this point we know that:

1) Obama will end the contest with the most pledged delegates,

2) Obama will likely end the contest with the popular vote tally,

3) Obama will end the contest with the most money and greatest fundraising potential,

4) Obama will end the contest with the most states,

5) Obama will end the contest with the best poll numbers against McCain, and

6) Obama will end the contest with the most primary state victories and caucus state victories.


So what's left for Team Clinton? She has to convince a majority of the super delegates to cast their vote for her, so how does she get those supers to ignore all of the above Obama advantages in order to cast their ballot for the candidate who is losing?

Apparently, it's a two-pronged strategy.

The first is what we've been seeing this week -- tear down a candidate who has inspired and given hope to millions by appealing to white resentment and turning him into the "black candidate". It's ugly and revolting, but the Clinton campaign is banking on it scaring people away from Obama. And by "people", I mean "super delegates".

Remember, Clinton can't win based on the math. The rules -- the "process" -- are her enemy. The only way she can win is by having the super delegates ignore all of Obama's clear advantages -- a coup by super delegate. And the way that coup is by tearing Obama down and discrediting the process that gave Obama those advantages.

But here's the rub -- the "process that gave Obama those advantages" includes latte drinkers, and black people, and young people, and red state Democrats, and small state Democrats, and blue states that voted for Obama.

So it's a sort of Catch-22 -- she needs the super delegates to abandon the winner for her loser campaign, but the way she's trying to win them over is by insulting their very states and constituencies.

Clinton is in a bad place. She is behind in every metric that matters, and has been relegated to trashing our likely nominee and entire Democratic Party constituencies and states in order to make the case that she's somehow "more electable" despite all evidence to the contrary. Unfortunately for her, the super delegates aren't all cloistered in New York or in DC.

They represent the United States of America. And outside of Clinton's Blue bastions, her insults aren't winning any new converts.

Some coward used my name "KS" to post a msg. saying that my "Edwards endorsing Clinton" was a rumour. I hope that no one would be fooled by that as all you need to do is to follow the link in my previous msg. to judge it for yourself. I hope that the new sign in procedure would alleviate some of these ID theft problems.
