Obama 70% Wyoming Win Slighted by Clinton campaign

Did everybody hear the earsplitting scream from the Hillary Clinton campaign when Senator Barack Obama's popular vote percentage came in at some 70% in Wyoming's Primary/caucus? Wonder if a few off-the-record choice words came out as advisers scurried to suppress the huge gap in popular vote, but highlight and magnify the net gain for Obama was on about 2 or 3 delegates more than Clinton's 4.

No such magnification occurred when Clinton won the popular votes in 3 states on Super Tuesday 2, netting her a mere - according to MSNBC panel last week - netted 8 more delegates from the 3 state wins to Obama's delegate acquistions from the 3 states.

Talk about grasping at straws. The ones Hillary and Company are reaching for are soggy and wet, slipping through fingers like a garden snake.

The Schoolgirl kid just can't stop the almost magical momentum of Barack Obama.

We can't wait for the subliminal messages Hillary and Company will soon stoop to using in the near future to further the psychological warfare, according to Carl Bernstein, the Clintons have already used to attempt to thwart Barack Obama.

According to reports from Pennsylvania, the days of Clinton's double digit leads in all areas of the state have have been clipped to a current 6 percentage points!

According to the Washington Posts blog, The Trail, article New Pennsylvania Poll Shows Slim Clinton Lead

As recently as two weeks ago, the Quinnipiac poll had Clinton up 16 points in Pennsylvania, but their new survey has her edge shaved to six points.

The Gov of the state is on her team, Governor Ed Rendell. However, polls are showing in the Gov's backyard - Philadelphia - the wide margins once favoring Hillary Clinton - have decreased and keep on decreasing.

Obama has already established campaign headquarters in and near the Pittsburgh, PA area. Should he visit and give a speech like others he's given before a state Primary where Clinton led, it's a good bet he'll not only narrow the percentage gap, he'll tie it, if not leave Clinton trailing behind.

No wonder Hillary and Bill are hinting of an acceptable to them second spot for her.

Watch as the Clinton team continues to promote a Florida re-do vote.

Her Slipperiness revealed her sleight of hand - part who's counting trickeries back in January, but little notice was taken, then.

New Pennsylvania Poll Shows Slim Clinton Lead
By Jon Cohen
A new poll shows Hillary Clinton hanging on to a slim lead in Pennsylvania, highlighting the breadth of Barack Obama's newfound appeal and the challenges Clinton faces should the race for the Democratic nomination reach the Keystone State.

As recently as two weeks ago, the Quinnipiac poll had Clinton up 16 points in Pennsylvania, but their new survey has her edge shaved to six points. The earlier poll was conducted just after the remaining Democratic candidates each scored big wins on Super Tuesday. Since then, Obama has gone undefeated headed into next week's critical contests in Ohio and Texas.

The Illinois senator's momentum has also translated into gains in most national surveys. A Los Angeles Times-Bloomberg poll released last night was the latest in a string of polls to show Obama picking up steam among Democrats across the country.

In the new Pennsylvania poll, Obama scored his largest gains among young voters, white men and those without college degrees, three groups that have, on average, leaned more heavily toward him in the post-Super Tuesday contests.

Two weeks ago, Clinton led Obama in Pennsylvania among likely Democratic voters under 45 and among white men; in the new poll, Obama is up 17 points among younger voters and he all but erased Clinton's advantage with white men. While Clinton retains the edge among non-college voters, her margin among those voters was more than halved from the earlier poll.

Obama Wins in Wyoming, Adds 7 Delegates

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Sen. Barack Obama captured the Wyoming Democratic caucuses Saturday, seizing a bit of momentum in the close, hard-fought race with rival Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton for the party's presidential nomination.

Obama generally has outperformed Clinton in caucuses, which reward organization and voter passion more than do primaries. The Illinois senator has now won 13 caucuses to Clinton's three.

Obama has also shown strength in the Mountain West, winning Idaho, Utah, Colorado and now Wyoming. The two split Nevada, with Clinton winning the popular vote and Obama more delegates.

But Clinton threw some effort into Wyoming, perhaps hoping for an upset that would yield few delegates but considerable buzz and momentum. The New York senator campaigned Friday in Cheyenne and Casper. Former President Clinton and their daughter, Chelsea, also campaigned this week in the sprawling and lightly populated state.
