(Community Matters) No real news there, though disappointing nonetheless. Hate seeing the polarization by race. Obama’s about bringing people together; evidently Hillary is about tearing people apart.
Bill Clinton thought she’d win by as much as 60% – 70%, so I guess they didn’t meet their own expectations. She netted 10 delegates; thank gosh for the 27 superdelegates Obama netted just this week. In neighboring Virginia, he netted 25 delegates. Not true he can’t win swing states, his wins have included Virginia, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Missouri.
Nationally, Obama continues to win big among independent voters over McCain (Hillary loses among the same group). And, the May 8 LA Times poll shows him winning 41% of white voters, McCain winning 45% – about what’s expected for any national Democratic candidate.
Obama’s campaign is strong – historically unprecedented fundraising – not just dollars but also number of donors – no debt, grassroots operations, relations within staff & stakeholders and results measured by delegates and popular vote. Lots of momentum among superdelegates, influencers and even former Hillary supporters.
