Our future Nominee is about to Sign On to Fundraise in coordination with the DNC

the Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee have decided to file papers with the Federal Election Commission establishing a "joint fundraising agreement." Under the law, such a committee can accept up to $28,500 from individuals, most of which would go to the DNC.

Presumptive Republican nominee John McCain has already formed such an alliance with the Republican National Committee. Their group — called Victory — was created in March after McCain clinched the GOP nomination.

Sources say the DNC has also held talks with Hillary Clinton’s campaign about forming a separate vehicle with her, but that no deal has been struck.

The fact that the Obama campaign is moving forward and Clinton is not at this time reflects certain important realities: Obama’s team is more confident that he will win the nomination than is Clinton’s — and Obama’s campaign has the necessity and luxury of thinking about and planning for the general election to come.

And a bit of interesting Polling data this morning.  Scott, take it away.

In the race for the Democratic Presidential Nomination, it’s Obama 49%, Clinton 42%. Those numbers are unchanged from the night before and, so far, there is absolutely no indication that Clinton’s victory in Pennsylvania has changed the overall dynamic of the race. These results are based upon a four-day rolling average and include two full nights of polling following the Pennsylvania Primary.

Right now it's also Nationally:  Obama 45% - McCain 45% ; Clinton 45% - McCain 47%.

Additionally some new numbers out of Massachusetts.  I can recall on election night the Clinton Spinmeisters were very busy on TV Cherry-Picking a recent tight Massachusetts poll to question whether or not Obama can Compete vis-a-vis McCain in such a solid blue state. Consider that bogus argument D.O.A.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in Massachusetts finds both potential democratic presidential candidates ahead of John McCain by double-digits. Hillary Clinton leads the Republican 55% to 36%, while Obama leads 51% to 39%.

Both races are close among male voters in the Bay State and both Democrats enjoy wide leads among women.

All three candidates are popular in the state. Obama is viewed favorably by 59%, Clinton by 58%, and McCain by 57%.

Yet more proof that the Clinton Arguement that Obama is less Electable is total bullshit.

Lastly, I hadn't seen this mentioned anywhere.  Obama is now going to be on TV on all the remaining States, as well as Puerto Rico.

Update: Gallup disagrees with Rasmussen, showing the race tight at 48%-47% advantage Obama.  Obama has not had a collapse of Support, but Hillary has managed to, for the time being, bring over a few Undecideds to her column.  She's now 1 point above her Post-ABC Debate level peak, and it could be interesting to see if her support level remains elevated.  

The results interesting enough match the results of This Indiana Poll, conducted Post PA.  ARG had a new poll out today as well showing Hillary Leading 50%-45% in Indiana, however her support dropped 3% since April 3rd and Undecideds are up +2% to 5%.  I'm really looking forward to any upcoming SUSA polls using the "RDD" method that has been fairly accurate this year.

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.
