Ominous Signs for Obama?
Michael Barone thinks it may be a bit premature to say the bottom is falling out for Obama, but he has identified some "ominous signs."
Here there are some ominous signs. The latest Fox News poll, conducted after the Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s appearance at the National Press Club, showed Obama’s favorable/unfavorables at 63 to 27 percent among Democrats, compared to Hillary Clinton’s 73 to 22 percent. Suddenly she’s not the only one with high negatives. And 36 percent of Democrats say they would be disinclined to vote for Obama because of his longtime relationship with his former pastor. There’s more bad news in the Pew Research Center poll of Democrats. Obama’s national lead among Democrats is down from 49 to 39 percent to a statistically insignificant 47 to 45 percent.
He has, however, shown himself to be pretty resilient. We'll have to see what develops. He can still claim the good news that Democrat super-delegates are continuing to go his way,...for now.
