I gotta say that I've been thinking about this. With how this primary has been going, I've thought that there must be some people who voted for Hillary, who wish they could change their vote.

Turns out it's true.

I'm sure there are those out there who would switch the other way, but this poll shows that there is a net gain and if the CA primary was a do-over, there'd be a victory for Obama.

Jump! reports on a new Survey USA poll that indicates a 16 point swing in favor of Barack Obama.

While Hillary won the state by 10. The poll indicates that now, Obama is leading by 6, which is outside the poll's margin of error of 4%.

Worst case, Obama wins by 2%.

Yeah Survey USA is hardly the greatest of polling operations, but this makes a lot of sense to me.

I started all of this in favor of Edwards. When he dropped out, I was rather non-committal and swore I wouldn't give money to either.

But Obama's response to the Rev. Wright thing, and specifically his speech on race really had an impact on me.

And then of course I got to see the Clinton campaign in all its ugly glory and that sealed the deal for me.

I've since given money to Obama.

When confronted about the "experience" deal, Obama often said, "Watch how I campaign." I have and I've been impressed. Multifaceted and waged on many fronts.

Obama was preparing for NC long before most people thought NC would be meaningful.

As far back as Feb. 21, Obama campaign manager David Plouffe was spotted in Raleigh, N.C. He told the News & Observer that the state's primary, then more than 10 weeks away, "could end up being very important in the nomination fight." At the time, the idea seemed laughable.

But I've also watched the HRC campaign and been thoroughly disgusted. I shudder to think what her presidency would have been with a staff stuffed with overpaid incompetents (Mark Penn and the whole proportionality thing??)


Is there anyone out there who voted for HRC who now wishes they could take it back?

Is there anyone out there who voted for Obama who would change to HRC?

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.
