Prediction:
Latest polls are Obama 41 to 44, Clinton 47 to 54, with 4 to 11% undecided.
Going with the upper range for both, 53 to 43 leaves 3 undecided. I would split those 2 for Clinton, 1 for Obama to give 55 to 44 with 1% other, or if you prefer, 55.7 to 44.3
Headline: Hillary wins by 11%, vows to fight on.

As an Obama supporter, I was hoping to hold her to single digits (for the psychological effect more than anything else), but it looks like she will do a little better than in Ohio.
If I could give a range, I bet she wins by a 10 to 12% margin

Note that Clinton gained 1 point and Obama held steady since the last survey. This reinforces my assumption that Clinton will pick up most of the "undecideds" who show up at the polls.

Here's a question: how many voters are likely to choose a candidate other than Obama or Clinton? Some polls have suggested that 3-4% favor "other" candidates. In Ohio, Edwards received 1.7% of the vote (despite having dropped out more than 6 weeks earlier). Does anyone know if Edwards' name will be on the PA ballot?
