Rasmussen says it all with a new poll today:

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey shows that Barack Obama (D) currently holds a seven-point advantage over John McCain (R), 46% to 39%. However, if the Democrats nominate Hillary Clinton, McCain will begin the race with a fourteen point advantage, 49% to 35%. National polling,  updated daily, currently shows the same general trend with Obama currently performing better than Clinton in match-ups with McCain.

There's a reason many "fly over" states have gone with Obama over Clinton.  And this poll confirms it.

Think of the down ticket races in these states!

We've got a very competitive open Senate seat in Colorado.  Obama on top of the ticket is obviously helpful.  Clinton, not so much.

And let's not forget all the state House and state Senate seats that a wave of new and cross-over Obama voters could do for Democrats in Colorado and other traditionally red or purple states.

Oh, and I don't know if you've seen SoapBlox now offers FREE SoapBlox Lites to people.  I just started a new one last night that is looking for some "Obamaphiles" to take over :).

Anyway, back on topic.  Chuck Todd says the Super Delegates can all read polls.  Well, if they are literate, I think they should be reading this Colorado poll.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
