5. That sounds about right
I think folks in CA are kind of regretting moving our primaries forward. I know a lot of people who voted for Clinton by default, because they knew her well, whereas they were not so familiar with Obama. And folk who didn't bother to vote because they assumed it was a foregone conclusion for Clinton. And now a lot of them are wishing they had voted otherwise.

Obama is partly responsible for this: his campaign also assumed Clinton's CA lead would be insurmountable and didn't campaign hard enough here. Of course there were many other states to be fought on Super Tuesday so I understand, but if the campaign had spent a bit more time in CA then he would have wrapped this up earlier.

Somehow I suspect Hillary won't be going around quoting that particular poll.
