Clinton 62, Obama 26
Woah! Almost a 40% lead. Amazing.

Let's put this into perspective. The only state Clinton has beaten Obama by more than 30 points is Arkansas. Oklahoma was the only one between 20 and 30. Even Tennessee was less than 15%.

And even more interesting perspective: wow the Democrats are horribly divided. I have been predictng this since Iowa - when the meda first started calling for Clinton to step out, followed by the New Hampshire "tear-gate" (which makes bitter-gate look above the belt), and "you're a racist-gate" and the "Kennedys will crush Clinton" run-up to Super Tuesday. This was inevitable. Four years ago, the media managed to scare off Dean's supporters with the scream. A lot of people anticipated that Clinton's supporters would abandon ship if they kept pounding her and, more recently, if Obama's supporters kept saying she should get out. All of this has just made her supporters "bitter." The Democrats are now in a red-alert mode. Everyone is overly sensitive, but I think Clinton's supporters are more likely to defect or stay home. Oh, well, 2012 is just around the corner. If I could live through 12 years of Bushes, 8 of Reagan, 6 of Nixon, and 2 of Ford, I'll be fine....Upset, but fine.
