The final nail in Team Clinton’s coffin

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , , — David Kirkpatrick @ 4:08 pm

Rasmussen is no longer polling the Democratic nomination race.

From the link:

At the moment, Senator Clinton’s team is busily trying to convince Superdelegates and pundits that she is more electable than Barack Obama. For reasons discussed in a separate article, it doesn’t matter. Even if every single Superdelegate was convinced that the former First Lady is somewhat more electable than Obama, that is not enough of a reason to deny him the nomination.

With this in mind, Rasmussen Reports will soon end our daily tracking of the Democratic race and focus exclusively on the general election competition between Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama. Barring something totally unforeseen, that is the choice American voters will have before them in November. While we have not firmly decided upon a final day for tracking the Democratic race, it is coming soon.

Obama gaining in Penn

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , , — David Kirkpatrick @ 2:58 pm

It looks like the predicted, and expected, Clinton blowout in Pennsylvania might not come to pass.

It’s fairly widely accepted she needs to win the state by around 20 points to remain the least bit (and that right there is a real stretch) viable in the race.

From the (second) Daily Dish link:

Rasmussen has Clinton by five in Pennsylvania: last week the spread was 10. SurveyUSA has her by 12: last week it was 19. A good trend for Obama. We’ll see if it keeps up.
