Hillary Stays One Step Ahead Of Her Losses
On the night of the Potomac Primaries, Hillary skulked off to Texas to address supporters even before the final results of her 0-for-3 pummeling that night had been tallied.
Tonight, with just a few percent of Wisconsin's precincts reporting (and exit polling foretelling another double-digit victory for Obama), Clinton popped up in Ohio, one of her last gasp states, gearing up for its primary on March 4th.
Hillary still holds a 15-point average polling lead in Ohio (although the three constituent polls show that gap closing briskly). Obama, meanwhile, is celebrating his Wisconsin victory in Texas, where Clinton's polling edge has worn as thin as 2 points in recent days.
Given the particulars of Texas' delegate allocation scheme (which overweights Obama strongholds like Houston, Dallas, and Austin, due to those districts' relative Democratic turnout in previous elections), Obama likely doesn't even need the tremendous momentum with which his campaign will hit March 4th in order to win the state. And even if Hillary pulls off wins in both Texas and Ohio, she's still a dead candidate stumping, whose final death rattle promises to be a magnificently atrocious display of intraparty destruction, especially in light of her latest decision to try to poach Obama's pledged delegates.
