the effect of Hillary continuing to fight for a nomination she can't win.
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 11:22 AM by IrishBloodEngHeart
McCain's numbers are going up as the media attention is negatively focused on the democratic campaign

Her numbers are staying the same, she continues to be polarizing and unpopular, with very little chance to win the primary or general election

Obama's numbers are going down, as all the mud being slung at him by a fellow democrat continues to take hold.

Good work Hilary!! You should be proud of all you are accomplishing. Enjoy the McCain presidency

Notice the following: "It appears that Clintons challenges to Obama may be helping McCain at least in the short-term. McCains polling numbers against Obama began improving during the run-up to the hard-fought Democratic Primaries in Ohio and Texas: "

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton essentially even in the race for the Democratic Presidential Nomination. Its Obama 46% Clinton 45% (see recent daily results). This reflects an unusually sharp change from yesterdays results when Obama led by eight points and reached the 50% level of support for the first time. Daily tracking results are collected via nightly telephone surveys and reported on a four-day rolling average basis. Last nights results were very favorable for Clinton and it remains to be seen whether this marks a lasting change in the race or is merely statistical noise. Single night results are based upon very small samples and are more volatile than the overall tracking poll.
Looking to November, John McCain now holds a slight lead over both Democrats in the General Election. Its McCain 47% Obama 42% and McCain 46% Clinton 42% (see recent daily results). It appears that Clintons challenges to Obama may be helping McCain at least in the short-term. McCains polling numbers against Obama began improving during the run-up to the hard-fought Democratic Primaries in Ohio and Texas. Obama has a three-percentage point edge over McCain among unaffiliated voters but is currently supported by just 65% of Democrats. By way of comparison, McCain earns the vote from 80% of Republicans.

1. The effect is that Hillary becomes the nominee.
She will fight to the last and she will use every legal tactic. She won't roll over like Gore and Kerry.

If Obama can't beat her fair and square by the existing rules, he does not deserve the nomination anymore than she does.

If there is an impasse, it is Obama who should drop out -- for at least a dozen solid reasons.

See BartCop for them.

2. That is her strategy. I predicted she would begine sliming him to hurt his electability.
She's trying to win by SDs alone.
