Well, speaking as a white collar worker, I have to tell you it's pretty ease to take off in the middle of the day and go vote (and maybe work an extra hour in the evening).
I am not sure the same thing can be said for blue collar workers generally.
No they do matter. Which is why, it is fair to say, the Democratic party needs the 'dream ticket'.
The key question, really, is who will be on top of that ticket.
I do not think there is any doubt he can win primaries.
The challenge is he is not doing well in any of the battleground states and depending on how the majority of the Latino vote would go in the general he might very well put CA in play for the GOP.
Don't get me wrong, clearly Clinton has her own disadvantages, but you have to admit the electoral map favors Clinton at this point.
Well Harris is now at 50% and BO gained a net of 10k so he might get another 40k? But then HRC will probably get another 30k from Hidalgo so I don't think he will win TX but it will be damn close.
The networks aggregated the early voting numbers into the precinct number so even though the precincts were not fully reporting the numbers showed up with the reported precincts.
The actual results are here ...
... Clinton has a 1% lead now with 8+%. She'll probably win by a few %.
The latest state of texas results:
... show Obama with a 33k vote lead and about a 2% spread.
You understand that Obama is not winning the popular vote overall, right?
So there is much convincing to be done ;-)
Personally, I think this contest will be neck and neck all the way through PA and I do hope, at that point, the candidates sit down and come up with something (anything really).
Actually I heard this diary is accurate. I mean, I heard from a person close to one of the campaigns that they are proposing to sit FL and a new caucus for MI.
At the same time, everyone now knows it will be a brokered convention and, most likely, a unity ticket (if both Obama and Clinton agree to be VP).
The debate is now who will be at the top of the ticket or will we get some wacky 4 year split thing.
Did you entirely miss the point of this post?
30% of voters said they would not vote for the other candidate
The 2/5 poll asked if the voters would vote for the other Democratic candidate. About 70% said they would vote for either.
If that happens neither Clinton or Obama can win.
If this goes to PA then McCain wins the presidency.
Clinton currently has many older voters and if there is not enough time to move them to Obama you won't win PA or FL (to say nothing of the whole FL fiasco).
Are not 35% of CA delegates awarded by statewide totals.
You know, the little ones, like TX and PA.
