Clinton by 38 in West Virginia.

May 10th, 2008 · No Comments · Politics

Short version - in November, Obama has no chance of winning WV, whereas Clinton would likely beat McCain there:

56% of those surveyed indicate they will vote for Clinton compared to 18% for Obama. There are 26% undecided voters, according to the poll of 403 voters by Mark Blankenship Enterprises. Compared to a previous MBE poll in February, Clinton is up 13%, while Obama’s numbers haven’t changed.

The MBE poll also looks ahead to the fall election against the presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain. Of the Democrats and independent voters surveyed, Clinton shows up better against McCain in West Virginia. 62% of Democrats and independents indicated they would vote for Clinton over 24% for McCain. In a head to head matchup between Obama and McCain in WV, Obama received 37% support compared to McCain’s 35% [of Democrats and Independents].

Now that everyone’s decided that Obama is the winner, the countdown to “buyer’s remorse” has begun.
