Pew: “Obama’s Image Slips, His Lead Over Clinton Disappears”

May 2nd, 2008 · No Comments · Politics

Obama suffers an eight point slip over the past month:

Democratic voters are not as positive about Barack Obama as they were a month ago. Somewhat smaller percentages of Democrats describe Obama in favorable terms, and he has lost his lead over Hillary Clinton in the race for the Democratic nomination. Nationally, Democratic voters are about evenly divided between Obama and Clinton; Obama holds a slight 47% to 45% edge. In late March, the Illinois senator held a 49% to 39% lead over his New York rival.

I pity the Superdelegates who are still dragging their feet at this point. It seems extremely unlikely that we’ll have a candidate with even any legitimate claim to momentum by the time the convention takes place, much less one who can make a strong case for national public support for their campaign.

Clearly, Gore/Carter ‘08 is the only choice that makes sense.
