Nice to see Rasmussen and Quinnipiac lining up on Pennsylvania, momentum is finally "real". I still think all of these polls are underestimating Obama's support in Texas...

I still think the Republicans have made a fool of Obamabots thinking they will be able to turn him into an ultra liberal, lol.

First plan: Take HRC out by voting in the Dems primary as republican

2nd plan: Defeat Obama soundly so that all of you obama fans look like bad gamblers, lol

I think you can stop here. I haven't crunched the numbers, but it seems to me that most times Obama gets more votes than the polls indicated.

I think the moderates and the undecideds will break to him more than Clinton (and more than McCain in General Election match-ups).

mc member,

CHRC is always the victim-in-chief. And anything bad that happens to her is either because of the "right wing conspiracy" or the "left wing conspiracy" or media bias.

Maybe the answer is as simple as this: she is divisive and people don't like her.

It is amusing that among all the conspiracy theories about how the Repbulicans are manipulating the Democratic primary, nobody has suggested the one that might have at least a shred of plausibility, namely that Mark Penn is a plant.

I suppose that in the spring of 1980 there were people saying that Democrats were crossing over to vote for Reagan in order to set him up.

Lisa:

You see Roy, Mark Penn is the CEO of the company that McCain's chief strategist works for. They are business partners. So McCain and Hillary basically have the same guys running their campaigns. That why their is a theory that these guys are helping Hillary.

I imagine that if I were a Republican that was in love with John McCain, I would be praying for Hillary rather than Obama to be the Democratic nominee. Unless every single poll is wrong, she is the much easier opponent.

As it is, I am a Republican who crossed over in support of Obama because I believe he is exactly the right person to lead our nation at this particular time.

Be careful what you wish for, RNC.

What an amazing difference in Hispanic voting. Rasmussen says Clinton +7, while Belo Texas/WFAA Tracking Survey says +32. Just a day ago, a statewide poll of hispanic voters suggested she was up by 41 among this group. http://www.foxbusiness.com/article/statewide-poll-latino-voters-texas-brings-upcoming-elections-clearer-focus_496259_1.html

One of these polling agencies is going to be very wrong. A +7 to +41 spread in the Hispanic vote is wild!

Hillary Clinton is a liar and a hypocrite. She WELCOMED the endorsement of that anti-Jewish group in New York that she claims to have rejected. She only rejected them later when it became politically untenable for her to keep them in her campaign. What a phony!

Obama supporters are really pi$$ing a lot of people off with their attitude. I hope he loses big in Texas and Ohio just to bring them down to earth.

Adam. Obama rolls over the clinton machine in T-minus 5 days!

Another MIke:

Adam,

As an Obama supporter, I can only hope that the posters you are referring to are bored trolls, looking to stir up trouble among Democrats. However, even if they are real Obama supporters, I would hope that you and other Clinton supporters would not judge the candidate based on the stupid remarks of a few anonymous internet posters.

Chantal:

I agree that there are a lot of Obama supporters with attitude issues. But it's probably just a product of the demographic that supports him. I'm curious to see whether or not this privileged attitude holds up after a few months, especially in a general election.

Though for Ohio, I'm curious to see if this NAFTA story carries any change in momentum. It's one thing to make deals behind closed doors, but it's another to do so but spend your whole campaign running against such a practice. Though I guess this assumes Obama supporters are actually voting on the issues, as opposed to their reasons for voting for him coming after their decision to vote for him.

Isn't this place supposed to be one to talk about polls and all things related? I really wished this site was moderated to keep out all the mindless negative attacks and rah rah cheerleading. Aren't there a million other places on the web for that???

If you take a good look at the numbers - a true unbiased observer could say that: Obama's support has peaked. People are taking a good second look. Clinton's favorables among the undecided are just to high. Take a good look people. Let the best man or woman win.

Rasmus:

There are 21 (!) comments and 2-3 of them really had to do with the poll published here.
This is a website for analysing POLLS not a forum for spamming Obama- or Clinton "supporters".

I am supporting Obama, and I am glad to see him leading in TX and gaining momentum in PA, but I would never post something like

"

Hillary Clinton is a liar and a hypocrite. She WELCOMED the endorsement of that anti-Jewish group in New York that she claims to have rejected. She only rejected them later when it became politically untenable for her to keep them in her campaign. What a phony! "

This is not of interest here, even if this is true, this is not the place to post such comments.

Early voting in Texas is huge. I waited 15 minutes to vote..I was the only Republican in line. I think the polls overall trend to Obama Nationally, but it's gonna be close in Texas. On average, Obama is up by 2%. In any event, Hillary cannot get the 60-65% threshold in delegates to surpass Obama.

This race was over after Wisconsin, even if Obama loses by slim margins in TX and OH, he is going to win VT, NC, Miss. I am looking forward to an Obama-McCain matchup that I think McCain can pull off.
