The gap widens

And according to this Wall Street Journal article, leading Democrats are beginning to line up behind Obama to further pressure Clinton to end her quixotic quest. Upcoming endorsements expected for Obama include Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and all seven of North Carolina’s House members before that election.

(Update on North Carolina: Maybe not on that group endorsement.)

From the first link:

PRINCETON, NJ — Barack Obama has extended his lead over Hillary Clinton among Democrats nationally to 52% to 42%, the third consecutive Gallup Poll Daily trackingreport in which he has held a statistically significant lead, and Obama’s largest lead of the year so far.

Interesting breakdown from Daily Kos on how labor endorsements will affect/are affecting the Democratic primaries.

Particularly how today’s UFCW and the expected SEIU endorsements will help Obama on the ground.
