Gallup: Obama Up By 10 Against Clinton

Gallup: Obama Up By 10 Against Clinton


I wonder what it’ll be after Saturday’s Michigan/Florida decision?

The details…

Since just after the North Carolina and Indiana primaries, Obama has led Clinton nearly every day, including a stretch of double-digit leads in the May 18-22 Gallup Poll Daily tracking releases. Since then, his advantage had been slightly less, at five to eight percentage points, but is back to a 10-point lead in the latest data.

Just three primary contests remain, and news reports suggest that the dispute over the Michigan and Florida convention delegations will not be resolved in the best possible way for the Clinton campaign. The Democratic National Committee will meet this weekend and likely allow either half those states’ delegates to attend, or the full delegations to attend, but with each member given half a vote. Thus, it is a near certainty that Obama will have clinched enough delegates to win the nomination under the current rules, and Clinton’s only hope of winning the nomination may reside in lawsuits or a convention floor fight.

More tomorrow…

    The DNC lawyers have argued that at most half the delegates (or all the delegates with half a vote) could legally be seated. Anything more would reek of impropriety!

    The heavy-weights are about to chime-in.

    “Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that he, House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi and party chairman Howard Dean will urge uncommitted superdelegates — the party leaders and other who may choose whomever they like — to choose sides quickly so that there is not a fight at the August convention.”

    Stay tuned for the season finally of the Obama-Mama-Drama!

    I don’t want to spoil the ending by telling you that Obama emerges the victor; oops!

    Hillary, the Queen of Spin and a Legend in Her Own Mind!
