Re: Obama's Numbers [John Hood]
Rich, I'm told that a new Survey USA poll for a NC television station today will put Clinton within five points of Obama. So, yeah, assume a roomful of scaredy cats over at Obama HQ.
I’m sick. Hillary is going to be our next President.
i think we should panic if hillary is nominee. i think operation chaos
will be a disaster.
Survey USA is a robo poll and not worth much, but I don’t doubt the race is closing.
She will win the nomination and, as Bill Bennett said, the Clinton’s do not lose. So she will be the next president. Obama would have been much easier to beat. Don’t understand Fox News and Rush, et al infatuation with her.
But he does agree with the rev’s worldview. Now he must mask it.
After 20 years in his pews, he now disagrees...??? You’re right.
No she ain't. McPain's the next president.
Never in a million years would I have guessed I would EVER say that!!...lol
A far-left EXTREMIST like Obama makes Hillary look almost middle-of-the road (which isn't even possible).
I disagree. By nominating Hillary, the Dims will alienate their black voters, who will probably rather not vote than vote for Hillary. Combine that with the high negatives that Hillary continues to have and McCain stands a very good chance of winning.
If Hillary becomes the nominee, a majority of blacks are going to be outraged that Obama was robbed. Hillary can't win without their vote. It is pretty debatable if Hillary can even win with their vote. Hillary has huge negatives and that is poison in the general election.
McCain will be the next president simply because Hillary will not be able to clinch the nominee. Democratic party is willing to lose an election than alienating blacks. They’re basically been blackmailed by black voting bloc.
If Hillary magically pulls an upset in the primary fight, McCain is toast. McCain simply does not have the guts to battle that witch. She will destroy McCain in OH, PA and FL.
He has not broke with Wright, IMHO it was all staged and planed by the Media group hired by the Obama camp to help Wright and this is what they came up with.
If it works look for something similar concerning Ayers.
Fear not...Mrs. Clinton will lose against McCain. ;)
If hillary wins, Obama will ABSOLUTELY take the VP slot. Then no problem with the black vote.
Now if McPain chooses someone more liberal and elite than himself, those people never voting for Hillary may just be disgusted enough not to vote, to take the day off (working of course) and let the bi**h become President by default.
In a Democratic Primary in North Carolina today, 04/29/08, one week till votes are counted, the 10-point lead that Barack Obama has had for two months is halved, to now 5 points, Obama 49%, Clinton 44%, according to SurveyUSA’s 7th tracking poll, conducted exclusively for WTVD-TV Raleigh. In SurveyUSA last four polls, over the past two months, Obama has led by 10, 8, 10, and 9 points. Today: 5. White voters are key. Since January, Clinton had led among Carolina whites by 14, 19, 17, 22 and 23 points. But today, suddenly: 31. In the Research Triangle, Clinton is up 9 points, week-on-week; Obama is down 3; a net swing of 12 points to Clinton. Among unaffiliated voters, Clinton has overtaken Obama for the first time in 2008, though the difference is small and within the sub-group’s margin of sampling error. The two tie among Moderates. Obama leads slightly among Liberals. Clinton leads slightly among Conservatives. There is enough cross-current in the political waters that SurveyUSA’s final pre-Primary poll, next week, may show more movement — though in which direction it is impossible to know.
That's about 20% of the Dems constituency. I wouldn't be surprised if there were riots if Hillary gets the nomination.
Relax. She can’t win enough delegates. Super delegates dont have the guts. A very damaged Obama will be the nominee or else there will be rioting in the streets of Denver and elsewhere.
The remaining states are more conservative states, so Hillary is likely to narrow the delegate gap a little, but she needs to get about 3/4 of the remaining superdelegates that haven't declared for one of the other so far in order to take the lead.
It really still is Obama's nomination to lose, and Wright by himself doesn't appear to be enough of a millstone around his neck to sink him.
I'm sure Hillary still has some tricks up her pants suit jacket sleeve, but with a large portion of the media running cover for Obama, I'm not sure she's got enough ammo to take him out.
I don't want to underestimate Hillary, but she's not used to having to fight a hostile press. After all, who would have thought a year ago that Bill Clinton's efforts on the campaign trail would have been so successfully shut down by the press not playing along with him?
I disagree with your disagreement. The clintin machine will flood the black neighborhoods with 'walking money' and cigarettes, and they'll roll out the buses. The residents of these cities will do just about anything the democrat party asks if their axles are greased with walking money and smokes.
Based on what do you assume that?
It's a rookie mistake that now makes him look weak. Hillary would have shut the guy up at the first sign of trouble and rode out the storm.
“Operation Chaos is working!
The funny thing to me about Operation Chaos is how Rush is using Ms. Clinton like a man with Montezuma’s Revenge uses toilet paper. Whoodathunkit?
Based on what?
I must respectively disagree with the previous posts.
If Obama drops out, the black vote will turnout for Clinton.
If Obama stays in and Clinton get the nomination, the black vote will turnout and will still turn out for Clinton.
The Democrats and their allies will do everything to get out the vote. Blacks may not like Clinton but they will still turnout and vote overwhelmingly for the Democrats on the ticket, including Clinton.
The polls show most of the Obama supporters willing to support Clinton not the other way around.
Everyone on this site knows about the Clintons. I think we will see operation Chaos to have been a mistake.
With THAT in mind, the women in Hillary's life haven't yet told their stories.
All around it's a pretty grim year Republicans. We can still have fun listening to Rush regarding Operation Chaos (or is it KAOS?).
Rasmussen has him up by 14 points in North Carolina.
I just don’t understand how anyone can continue to vote for him.
I just know things. I was predicting McCain as nominee last summer. ;)
The S.S. Obama
For sure, John McCain won’t fight She Who Cackles for the Oval Office, and it is not even certain that he would make much of a contest against Barack Mohammed (since we are no longer to refer to his given middle name) Obama, Jr., the charismatic, messianic Magic Negro. But as is becoming all the more apparent all the time, poor Barack may have discovered that ship has already sailed. The Reverend Dr. Jeremiah Bullfrog, er, Wright has just about cast off all the lines, and if anchor has also been lifted, the boat is probably adrift.
And if Hillary IS going to be the next President, then that changes the whole dynamic. Suddenly She Who Cackles OWNS the problems, and can either attempt to continue on the “kick the can down the road” strategy as was done before, or actually turn around and FACE the problems.
Imagine a reprise of 9/11, only about ten times as bad.
No kicking the can down the road on THAT.
If Hillary is the nominee, you can bet the house Obama will be her running mate. She has no choice, and he will happily accept it for the sake of party unity.
It’s really peeing me off listening to Rush gloat on this. Today he said without sounding disappointed, that it’s not his fault if hillary wins. Then he goes on bragging about “Operation Idiot”.
It'll be a blood fest when all their connections come to be aired in front of the American public.
Maybe Mcpain will challenge and fight against the hildabeast. He'll never fight against obama he'd be too afraid of being called a racist.
With about 50% of the registered democrats in NC being black, if Fauxbama can’t win NC rather handily... I’d say its much over for him.
Not that he could win a general election anyway... but still.
actually 35% are black in NC.
Hillary is a centrist and might very well win ... esp against McCain. Obama’s going down the drain now.
We want to run against Obama!
I’ll believe that when I see it.
If he chooses a liberal as a VP, we're all screwed. And playing a game of darts to elect a president.
Obama LIED today big time! Notice in the clip he could not look up while lying about denouncing Wright.
And Wright has even said that Obama has to lie about distancing himself becuase that is what policians do. They are still on the same wavelength.
I think Obama expected Wright would have been more discreet. But they think the same way.
I can hear the two reverends playing the "race card" at the dim convention. You are correct about the blacks not supporting hillary. There have been a number of callers to the "right wing" talk shows expressing their disgust with her. Most will either sit out or vote for McCain.
Here in Austin, there are several regular [black] callers to the Morning Show and every BO supporter has said they will NOT vote for HRC. Most don't like X-42 being called the "first black president" either.
Hillary can win. People already know her foibles. They know she is a liar and has dirty hands ... and still they vote for her.
Obama is very vulnerable. People are just getting to know this guy and some are scared at what they are seeing.. Rightly so.
History, personal history. When I voted for clinton, twice, I hated her guts. Everybody I knew hated her guts. She is throughly despised.
If SurveyUSA Is On Target, We’re Seeing a Dramatic Shift
After seeing the Survey USA poll showing Hillary within 5 percent of Obama in North Carolina, I decided to go back to see how that firm had done in recent Democratic contests.
In Pennsylvania, Survey USA’s last poll had Hillary 50, Obama 44. The final numbers in the Keystone State were 54.6 percent to 45.4 percent.
In Ohio, Survey USA’s last poll had it Hillary 54, Obama 44. That almost nailed it, as the final numbers there were 54.2 percent to 44.1 percent.
In Texas, Survey USA’s last poll had Obama ahead, 49 to 48. Hillary won that state, but it was indeed close, 50.9 percent to 47.4 percent. They had Hillary two points too low, and Obama about 1.5 percent too high.
So while Survey USA is the only one putting North Carolina in single digits, their track record lately suggests we shouldn’t expect them to be too far off the final results. Also note that Survey USA puts Hillary ahead in Indiana by 9 percent.
