  •  A MyDD poll on Friday... (4+ / 0-)

    ...found that some 69% of Clinton supporters there wouldn't vote for Obama in the general.

    If you're right, Alegre is in the minority.

    •  MyDLC Is Home To Many DLC Extremists (5+ / 0-)

      so I wouldn't put too much stock in any "polls" they take over there.

      MyDLC is a very strange world, where up is down and Hillary Clinton can do no wrong.

      comparable, or lower, than the number of Obama supporters here that wouldn't vote for Clinton.

      •  Actually... (0+ / 0-)

        ...I can't find a poll with identical questions here.  The closest thing I can find has comparable numbers of Obama supporters who wouldn't vote Clinton in the general, should she score the nomination.

        Both polls are probably unrepresentative, and both are probably not accurate representations of what will actually happen in the general.

        •  no, (0+ / 0-)

          just site demographics - but that was the point.

          here's one - it's old, but I think (looking at the poll's own trend lines) things have gotten worse.

          so there you go.

          •  Yeah (0+ / 0-)

            The problem is that it doesn't break down people who vote into "Obama supporters" and "Clinton supporters".  The nice thing about that MyDD poll was that they did just that.  It has some 55% of people saying they wouldn't vote for Clinton; however, the percentage of just Obama supporters saying that may be a good deal higher.

            The percentage of Obama supporters at MyDD actually seems a good deal higher than the percentage of Clinton supporters here.

            •  hmm good point (1+ / 0-)

              guess I just made an "apples and oranges" comparison, lol.

              my bad.  

              as to the second point, hard to tell.  mobs of angry Obama supporters seem to have driven most of them into hiding.  half the time I'm not even sure I could say something like "I bought a triple venti white mocha" without being accused of hackery.  And I even want Obama to win - I just have the unforgivable temerity to try to say less than hateful things about C.

    •  better not take that poll here, with Obama (0+ / 0-)

      in place of Hiullary, you might not like to see the results.

      •  It's been done (0+ / 0-)

        In one form or another (not the same exactly questions, from what I've been able to find).  The closest I've seen has comparable results.
