First to the turnouts. In Wisconsin, Obama won 58%-41%. That’s not the only big news though. Look at these turnout numbers:
The Democrats had almost 3 times the turn out as the Republicans did yesterday. That is in Wisconsin – a state the Kerry and Gore won by only 1%. That is awesome news for the Democrats when we head into the general election.
Obama also won Hawaii 76%-24%. Almost 40,000 Democrats turned out to vote, which is four times the amount state party officials expected. Again – huge momentum on the Democratic side of things.
According to a new Reuters/Zogby poll released this morning, Obama now has a 14% lead over Clinton nationally. In a general match up, Obama beats McCain 47% to 40%, however a match up of Clinton/McCain has McCain winning 50% to 38%.
I don’t care how much the Clinton campaign tries to spin it today, they are about done. Obama is catching up to Clinton in Texas, and if she looses there she needs to drop out and take one for the party. That would be the noble thing to do, and her best chance at having a future run.
