The civil war that is going on in the Democratic Party is getting worse by the day. The longer that Hillary and Obama sling mud, the bigger the divide gets within the Democratic Party itself.
Now today, Gallup has come out with a poll saying that up to 28 percent of Hillary’s supporters or up to 19 percent of Obama’s supporters will vote for John McCain, depending on who the Democrat’s nominate for President. That’s a big, if not huge, number.
Many Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama supporters are ready to spurn the Democratic party and vote for John McCain in November if their candidate doesn’t win the presidential nomination, according to a new poll out Wednesday.
And a second poll out Wednesday shows most voters — including 85 percent of Democrats — believe there’s a chance that the battle between Clinton and Obama will not be resolved before the August convention.
Among people who identified themselves as Hillary Clinton supporters, 28 percent said they would vote for McCain if Obama is his opponent, the March 7-22 Gallup Poll Daily election tracking survey found.
The same poll found that 19 percent of Obama supporters would switch sides and cast ballots for McCain if Clinton is the Democratic candidate.
Of course, we’re still in March and many things can happen. But, if this whole process goes till the convention in Denver, the Democrats have a HUGE problem on their hands. And you know, the Clintons will never bow out gracefully.
John McCain is sitting pretty right now.
