With the continued saga plaguing the Obama campaign, Hillary Clinton has a renewed sense of optimism that somehow, some way, perhaps she can still take the nomination. A new poll confirms that Democratic voters now believe she’d have the better chance of beating McCain.
The story on it from AOL News:
WASHINGTON (AP) – Hillary Rodham Clinton has a better chance than Barack Obama of beating Republican John McCain, according to a new Associated Press-Ipsos poll that bolsters her argument that she is more electable in the fall than her rival for the Democratic nomination.
The survey released Monday gives Clinton a fresh talking point as she works to convince pivotal undecided superdelegates to side with her in the drawn-out Democratic primary fight.
Clinton, who won the Pennsylvania primary last week, has gained ground this month in a hypothetical head-to-head match up with the GOP nominee-in-waiting; she now leads McCain, 50 percent to 41 percent, while Obama remains virtually tied with McCain, 46 percent to 44 percent.
Truth be told, Obama has locked up the pledged delegates, the math has already won him the nomination in that respect. However, could the superdelegates see Jeremiah Wright as a liability and thus, choose Hillary Clinton as the nominee?
According to this Fox News video, some in the media may be giving Clinton a second look:
That is, of course, if you believe there has been a bias in the media toward Obama and against Clinton. Furthermore, if you believe there is a “liberal” bias in the media to begin with, you could then accept the notion that the media would rather see a Democrat, in the form of Hillary Clinton, elected over the Republican John McCain. Regardless of whether they may like the “idea” of Obama as the nominee. Finally, if they perceive Obama as too “weak” whether by form or because of Jeremiah Wright, might they abandon him in favor of Clinton?
