“One reason the race appears to be tight is that Texas Democrats are having a hard time choosing between two attractive options,” says CNN polling director Keating Holland.
“Likely Democratic primary voters would be equally happy if either candidate won the nomination, and they don’t see a lot of difference between them on several top issues.
“Roughly a quarter of likely voters say they could change their minds in the next two weeks — and not surprisingly, those people are splitting roughly equally between Clinton and Obama.”
The biggest issue here is Hillary needs to win Texas in a big way in order to make up ground in the pledged delegate chase. Her team can’t like these numbers, and so maybe that’s why we’re seeing more negative attacks?
