Not only is Obama failing to gain Hillary’s supporters, his support from registered Democrats has dropped from 59% to 54%, according to CNN (thanks PPM):
A growing number of Clinton supporters polled say they may stay home in November instead of casting their ballot for Obama, an indication the party has yet to coalesce around the Illinois senator four weeks after the most prolonged and at times divisive primary race in modern American history came to a close.
According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll released Friday, the number of Clinton supporters who plan to defect to Republican Sen. John McCain’s camp is down from one month ago, but — in what could be an ominous sign for Obama as he seeks to unify the party — the number of them who say they plan to vote for Obama is also down, and a growing number say they may not vote at all.
In a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey completed in early June before the New York senator ended her White House bid, 60 percent of Clinton backers polled said they planned on voting for Obama. In the latest poll, that number has dropped to 54 percent.
Now why could that be? The new gets worse, according to CNN:
In another sign the wounds of the heated primary race have yet to heal, 43 percent of registered Democrats polled still say they would prefer Clinton to be the party’s presidential nominee. Watch why Clinton supporters are struggling with supporting Obama »
That number is significantly higher than it was in early June, when 35 percent of Democrats polled said they preferred Clinton to lead the party’s presidential ticket. …
The rest of the article is devoted to a silly poll about attitudes towards Bill Clinton, hardly the Democratic party’s current — and immediate — worry.
The immediate problem for the Democratic party is its FIXED nomination of Barack Obama that disenfranchised millions of Democratic party loyalists across the nation — starting with Florida and Michigan.
Then there were the caucuses, mobbed by young, affluent Obama supporters who were not properly checked to determine if they are registered to vote. And the millions of people who couldn’t attend a caucus that runs several hours because they are working, have small children, are ill, are in hospitals or nursing homes, or disabled. Don’t miss our radio show that describes the “Texas two-step” and more, when Bud White interviewed The Denver Group.
The article assumes that Hillary’s supporters will come around. Wrong.
We know who won the popular vote. We know who the people of the KEY SWING STATES voted for — those states essential for a presidential victory. We witnessed the thievery of the RBC committee.
Nobody “gets over” that kind of crooked, unDemocratic treatment.
