The races are tightening (and yeah, Mike Huckabee is still bedeviling Baghdad Johnny, even from the Caymans. All-right!)
First, the Dems:
That ARG poll is either a Zogbyesque outlier, or a new reason for Hilary to drink... heavily ...
And now, the Repubs:
Question: how is Mike Huckabee in such high double digits long after this race is supposedly other? And shouldn't John-boy be cracking 50 percent in any poll, in any state, at this stage? Sounds like some little party doesn't dig it's nominee...
A bit more on that ARG poll:
Hillary Clinton leads Barack Obama among self-described Democrats 47% to 42%. Obama leads Clinton among self-described independents and Republicans 24% to 71%. Obama leads among men 55% to 29% (47% of likely Democratic primary voters) and Clinton leads among women 54% to 42%. Clinton leads Obama among white voters 51% to 40% (53% of likely Democratic primary voters), Obama leads Clinton among African American voters 76% to 17% (22% of likely Democratic primary voters), and Clinton leads Obama among Latino voters 44% to 42%.Those internals look about right, although I wouldn't bet money on that large Obama lead...
22% of likely Democratic primary voters say they would never vote for Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary and 20% of likely Democratic primary voters say they would never vote for Barack Obama in the primary. 30% of men say they would never vote for Clinton in the primary.
