  •  Hillary's my second choice (8+ / 0-)

    And a lot of Edwards folks I know feel that way. And no, I generally don't pick up my phone and talk to pollsters.

      same here.

      I did a diary poll in which:

      If John Edwards were no longer a candidate for the Democratic nomination, for whom would you cast your vote?

      Neither candidate in the primary, but for the eventual Democratic nominee 23% 107 votes

      I will not support the Democratic candidate in November if it's Obama or Clinton 9% 43 votes

      Clinton  26% 118 votes

      Obama     40% 182 votes

      | 450 votes

      •  among those numbers in your diary poll (1+ / 0-)

        the 26-40 split between Clinton and Obama is suggestive.  Of course, in any case dKos people aren't necessarily representative of Edwards supporters as a whole; and the respondents to you poll seem to be only a fraction of the Edwards folks here. But at any rate I don't think your diary poll results indicate Hillary being as or more popular than Obama among the Edwards respondents?

    •  I can certainly respect that (0+ / 0-)

      I know you're a thoughtful commentator and I certainly respect your right to cast you vote however you see fit.  I hope you'll at least give us Obama supporters a good listen if it does come to your having to make a second choice.

      Barack Obama. Because we can do better.
