CNN poll shows Obama going backwards with Democrats

posted at 9:11 am on July 5, 2008 by Ed Morrissey

How’s that backflip to the center working for Barack Obama?  According to CNN polling, he has managed to lose Democrats rather than heal the party after an often-bitter primary.  Hillary Clinton has gained eight points in the poll since conceding to Obama, and more of her supporters now say they will stay home rather than cast a vote for the man who bested their favorite:

One week after Sen. Hillary Clinton made a public show of unity with Sen. Barack Obama, a new survey suggests supporters of the New York senator are increasingly less likely to follow her lead.

A growing number of Clinton supporters polled say they may stay home in November instead of casting their ballot for Obama, an indication the party has yet to coalesce around the Illinois senator four weeks after the most prolonged and at times divisive primary race in modern American history came to a close.

According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll released Friday, the number of Clinton supporters who plan to defect to Republican Sen. John McCain’s camp is down from one month ago, but — in what could be an ominous sign for Obama as he seeks to unify the party — the number of them who say they plan to vote for Obama is also down, and a growing number say they may not vote at all.

In a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey completed in early June before the New York senator ended her White House bid, 60 percent of Clinton backers polled said they planned on voting for Obama. In the latest poll, that number has dropped to 54 percent.

Support for Hillary’s nomination rose from 35% to 43% since her withdrawal.  The percentage of refuseniks among them has also risen from 22% to nearly a third.  This comes just a week after Hillary Clinton appeared with Obama at a rally in Unity, New Hampshire, to re-endorse Obama and emphasize her support.  What has happened?

CNN gets part of the answer in its analysis.  Four weeks is not enough time for polarized Democrats to get over the bitterness of the campaign, they say, and it will probably take much longer given the length of the primaries in this cycle.  It took Christian conservatives over three months to come to terms with John McCain’s nomination, and the Republican contests didn’t have anywhere near the level of bitterness that existed between Hillary and Obama camps.

That doesn’t explain why the situation has gotten worse, though.  Obama’s long string of policy reversals over the last few weeks have made the Clintons look like the Rock of Gibraltar on the issues.  Flip-flops on NAFTA, FISA reform, and public financing not only make Obama look dishonest, but a political disaster waiting to happen on the scale of a Walter Mondale or a George McGovern.  It’s increasingly clear that the only principle to which Obama will cling is his own benefit, and everyone and everything else can easily go under the bus as long as it benefits Obama.

Don’t expect the Clintons to amp up their support to help Obama.  Hillary and Bill see Obama as a disaster as well, and they’re looking at 2012 as well as getting their debt retired from this cycle.  Right now, they don’t see Hillary having to run against an incumbent Democrat in the next cycle.

They pulled out of Memphis nearly two hours late,
Soon they were speeding at a terrible rate.
And the people knew by the whistle’s moan.
That the man at the throttle was Casey Jones.

Need more coal there, fireman Sim,
Open that door and heave it in.
Give that shovel all you got
And we’ll reach Canton on the dot

On April 30, 1900, that rainy morn,
Down in Mississippi near the town of Vaughan,
Sped the Cannonball Special only two minutes late
Traveling 70 miles an hour when they saw a freight.

Wise words of the ages:
“Don’t buy a pig in a poke.”

The advice being given is ‘don’t buy a pig until you have seen it’. This is enshrined in British commercial law as ‘caveat emptor’ – Latin for ‘let the buyer beware’. This remains the guiding principle of commerce in many countries and, in essence, supports the view that if you buy something you take responsibility to make sure it is what you intended to buy.

A poke is a small sack or bag and is the origin of the word pocket. The word is still in use in several English-speaking countries, notably Scotland and USA. A poke is just the sort of bag that would be useful for carrying a piglet to market.

A pig that’s in a poke may turn out to be no pig at all. If a merchant tried to cheat by substituting a lower value animal, the trick could be uncovered by letting the cat out of the bag. The advice has stood the test of time and people have been repeating it for getting on for five hundred years, maybe longer. Fraser’s Magazine (1858) reprinted a piece from Richard Hill’s (or Hilles’) Common-place Book, 1530, which gave this advice to market traders:

The glass-half-full view:

Carter was stubbornly ignorant and wrong, but Carter was not afraid to jump from the frying pan into the fire. But Obama, who’s also inclined to be naive, ignorant, and wrong, can often be convinced to just hide his head in the sand and not decide. So Obama may be an improvement over Carter. Obama will stay right in the frying pan, ignore the problem, and call the frying pan a racist. Indecision rather than suicide. Glass half full.

Democrats are exposing themselves as morally bankrupt power hungry solutionless puppets on a daily basis; the Liberal left wing of the Democrat Party (MSM) has been exposed and is being punished.

I took my family to a rodeo in Livingston, Montana yesterday for the 4th celebration. What a fabulous patriotic experience this rodeo turned out to be. The opening ceremony was so filled with “pride of country”, it put goose bumps on my arms. The announcer had all military (past and present) stand up and be recognized by the crowd; a loud and vibrant standing ovation took place! The announcer spoke of the 232 year history of this great nation, a nation built by brave men & woman who showed their love for country in a way that is missing from far too many of our leaders of today. In America today, it’s all about power, money, sex, & corruption; lacking in principled behavior; dominated by lust, greed, and selfishness…

Obama is a prime example of the ugly American; surrounded by the likes of Wesley Clark who would degrade the efforts of an American who proved his “love for country” with his actions. Piss on them!

But then again that indecision could kill our economy when a liberal congress passes Carter-like laws and Obama fails to act or veto them. He has 10 working days to act, no action and those bills automatically become law.

He is the example of pure ugly and self imposed mental retardation. The housing projects in his district are in dissaray, he favors early parole for sexual offenders and pedofiles (sp?), and he wants to punish success and tax the fruits of your labor. He favors economic policies that have already proven to be disasterous over and over.

This is as smart as a woman going back to her abusive boyfriend or husband and then having the “audacity” to wonder why he beat her again.

The movie was about vanity;

van·i·ty (vn-t)
n. pl. van·i·ties
1. The quality or condition of being vain.
2. Excessive pride in one’s appearance or accomplishments; conceit. See Synonyms at conceit.
3. Lack of usefulness, worth, or effect; worthlessness.
4.
a. Something that is vain, futile, or worthless.
b. Something about which one is vain or conceited.

and it’s relationship with the defeat (control over) of the American soul. How to beat the mighty U.S. of A. from within it’s own ranks. Control of the leaders by way of their own weaknesses; temptation, temptation, temptation; keep filling the plate with it, and the ugly American “who seeks great power” will eventually be owned by it…

Let’s see, what could McCain’s camp do to exploit Obama’s soft underbelly with regard to the Hillary feminists so they stay home in greater numbers? What is their most sacred issue? Oh, I know,..how about a statement from the McCain camp congratulating Obama on his recent new found position that emotional health shouldn’t be considered a major criteria for justifying partial birth abortions?

That is an excellent point. I believed he was just a marxist and an uber-lib before all the flip flops…so he even had me fooled for a while…of course I didn’t trust him (who can trust a commie?) but I thought he was principled in that every principle he had was the exact opposite of every principle that I had.

To find out he really is just a pompous snob with no backbone, no soul, no heart and just pure ambition must REALLY be a disappointment for the true believers that AGREE with marxist/socialist policies. I respected him more when I thought he was at least genuine.

Agreed… Obama should have waited another 8-12 years before making this run. I don’t blame Hillary for her anger towards the “power brokers” that control the Democrat Party. This was her time; she earned it by holding the Dems together while her husband floundered around making a mockery of the highest position held in the world today. The biggest weakness in America today is the absolute corruption that controls our political establishment. The White House approval ratings are very low; Congress approval ratings have record lows; Judicial ratings are very low… All three branches; one held by the GOP, the other two controlled by Liberals; all have very low approval ratings. This give me hope that Americans recognize the problem, while giving me fear for the future of my country, as we have no way of knowing just how much of our country has been sold to the highest bidder.

I look towards our military as the bright spot; the shining beacon on top of the hill…

Much of the Hildy supporters’ beef with Obama is that while Hillary is as much a tyro as Obama, she at least had Bill to fall back on. The more Obama looks like the amateur he is, the less it assures the fears of Hillary supporters.

To most here in Montana, you’re not a Republican or a Democrat as much as you’re an American, and you had better damn well behave like one. Beautiful wide open country abounds here, and very traditional & friendly people. Extreme weather conditions keep most from living here I would guess; fabulous place to visit, explore, and have a memorable experience with your family.

Obama probably can’t win even against McCain. If any of the other “top tier” republican candidates had won the nomination it would have been a slam dunk. The longer this goes on the worse Obama looks. If we would just have conventions to nominate a candidate instead of the “mickey mouse” we are currently using we would probably have a better candidate. If enough of the delegates would just give up on McCain and nominate Thompson or Romney things would be much better (but of course I am dreaming).

KEEMO, since you said you lived in Montana, can you give us some inside knowledge on the poll that came out this week showing obama ahead in MT of all places? How is that possible? Were the demographics used in that poll true reflections of the voters in MT?

I have been very ambivalent about McCain. I am afraid he is going to listen to the political pundits in tv who are saying he needs to pick lieberman/hillary/name that liberal, instead of a good conservative VP we can be proud of. I hope he seriously picks Palin in Alaska. I also hope he picks the day after the convention ends in Denver to make that announcement to take the wind away from their potential post convention “bounce”. I am a Fred Head. I loved his firm stance on things and the way he could verbally skewer a liberal. Hopefully Fred will stump for McCain and do just that.

I have decided I am voting FOR McCain now instead of against Obama. I reached this conclusion this week with their orchestrated attack on McCain’s military service. It highly offended me and I am now going to actually donate to his campaign after the convention IF he has a good VP pick. Before this week, I was not going to financially support his campaign.

Polling in Montana is really difficult due to the hundreds of thousands of people that live in rural areas. Polling data is pulled from cities such as Bozeman and Missoula; college towns both of them. College towns are where most of the Obama supporters exist.

I’ll give you my best take on the political climate in Montana. This state is heavily populated with military families who have members currently serving; also, lots of retired servicemen. I haven’t talked with one single military family that agrees with Obama’s politics, or with Democrat politics for that matter. I believe McCain will carry Montana by a comfortable margin come November. I will also tell you that Montanans are not happy with this current crop of GOP critters. Big government policies, expanding the government reach into our homes, spending like drunken Liberals, corruption, lacking in integrity & principled behavior; all have hurt the GOP big time. This state could become purple, or even blue if the GOP continues to turn it’s back on Conservatives. McCain made a few blunders that have not helped him here at all; the gang of fourteen and McShamnesty have left a trust issue with many. Everywhere I go, people have their radios tuned in to Rush Limbaugh, Hannity, or Beck. If the Dems had a candidate other than a radical white person hating Liberal, I could see them winning Montana is 08…. The GOP will lose this state if they stay on the path they are currently on.

Keemo on July 5, 2008 at 8:22 PM

Keemo,

The gang of 14 and the McShamnesty is why I had McCain practically as my last choice for the GOP nod this election cycle. However, Obama’s sneaky attack on McCain’s service to our country via his dishonorable surrogates has me so damn mad, that I am now supporting McCain’s candidacy now. Whether he gets financial support from me depends upon his choice of VP. If he screws the conservatives over by a bad VP pick, then my vote for him will be while I hold my nose. However, we can NOT let obama win at any cost this election cycle. Our country barely survived Jimmy Carter. I can not fathom a presidency that would be 10 times worse, and that is what we have with Obama. It is a very scarey prospect.

karenhasfreedom on July 6, 2008 at 1:22 AM

karenhasfreedom on July 6, 2008 at 1:22 AM

I agree with your thinking entirely… McCain will get my vote, but I will much happier if he has Mitt Romney or Fred Thompson at his side. This election is all about which candidate will harm the country the least. Sad state of affairs.

Watching Fox New Sunday just now, on VP picks.

They basically agree that for Bobama, the timing for his decision can wait, and Biden would be a good choice.

McCain, however, NEEDS the momentum and direction that VP Palin would give to his stagnating campaign, though Romney would be a good VP.

I certainly wish that McCain would deputize his posse NOW. Admit the VP Palin brilliance energizing the ticket to victory BECAUSE of team Thompson and Romney on board, including Rudy, utilizing Thompson’s winning platform and gravitas, utilizing Romney’s organization skills in campaigning to complement/IGNITE McCain’s flagging lag in clarity, and never overlooking Rudy’s attorney general appeal. Together, this crew would win hands down!

That bobama only has a slight national lead over McCain PROVES that the mantra “year of the democrat” is just more ubertard propaganda.
