Has a SINGLE Superdelegate left Obama since Wright story broke?
Doesn't seem like it.


Conversely, has Hillary GAINED a single Superdelegate since Thursday?


So.... 72 hours into this.... not a SINGLE thing has changed.


We'll see... but I don't see Obama losing any Supers over this..... or Hillary gaining any.

1. Polls are shifting.

Looks like a 15 point one day drop for Obama.

2. 15 points, eh?
Looks like he dropped 4 points.

Perhaps you mean a 15 swing? Nope, that's not right either. It'd be a 7 point swing.

I thought you were leaving.

3. If your theory holds true
If SDs are going to overturn the will of the voters so far and choose Hillary, they will wait to see if there is actually a negative reaction to "pastor-gate" by looking at the PA results. If Hillary blows him out, they might think about it. They won't just kneejerk go from uncommitted to Hillary without seeing some evidence that it is in the best interests of the party.

7. You need to do some research and understand why the SDs were created in the first place
I suggest you start with google, superdelegates and George McGovern.

13. Thanks for the condescension. I know all about it.
It was due to an overreaction to a single presidential election.

4. They will......
If public opinions swing away from Obama (and it's doing just that) then the superdelegates will walk. I see Obama loosing quite a few politicians in his camp over this.

16. Yes, and I wonder what Clinton scandal is waiting around the corner?
To pretend that she has been "vetted" over the past 7 years is laughable. Still waiting on those tax returns.

9. Hillary wasn't helped
by this, which should be terrible news for her supporters. All they can' do is destroy Obama, they can't cause people to support her. But that's the point.
