Obama leads Clinton 41%-38%, but once the margin of error of 4.2% is factored in, the race is even. Where Obama does hold a clear advantage is in the hypothetical head to head matchup with John McCain.
At the end of the Texas/Ohio campaign last month, Hillary Clinton unleashed her now-infamous "3 A.M." television ad, challenging Barack Obama's foreign policy inexperience. Earlier this week, facing another must-win primary in Pennsylvania, Clinton used some brief footage of Osama bin Laden in another television ad.
A new poll released today by the Harvard University Institute of Politics found that Barack Obama dominates among young voters who planned to vote in the Democratic Primary. Those aged 18-24 favored Obama over Clinton by a 70%-30% margin. Most interesting is that Obama leads McCain 53%-32% in a hypothetical general election matchup.
Almost 85% of the results have been counted in many of the counties in Pennsylvania, and it is clear that the hunting gun loving counties in the state went heavily for Hillary Clinton. Here is a sample of how bad the Obama defeat was in the rural counties that didn't appreciate being told that they cling to their religion and guns.
In March, Obama raised $41,144,348. This is more than double Clinton's total of $20,107,968, and John McCain might be better off buying a metal detector and heading to the beach, as he only raised $12,037,287.
