Obama-mentum!

Momentum (noun) - an impelling force or strength; “Senator Obama’s momentum carried his campaign to a lead in the polls.” 

The Latest Rasmussen California Poll

Election 2008: California Democratic Presidential Primary
California:
Obama 45% Clinton 44%

In California’s Democratic Presidential Primary, Barack Obama now holds a statistically insignificant one-point lead over Hillary Clinton. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in California shows Barack Obama with 45% of the vote while Hillary Clinton earns 44%. Earlier in the week, Clinton had a three-point advantage in what has become an extraordinarily close race.

Five percent (5%) of voters are still undecided, 5% say there is still a good chance they could change their mind, and 19% say they might change their mind. Part of the indecision appears to stem from the fact that Democratic voters generally like both of their remaining candidates. Click HERE for the rest of the Rasmussen Report.

A funny thing happened on the way to Hillary’s Coronation…

The race narrowed to two people and those who were undecided or supporting John Edwards or other candidates are breaking for Obama.

Editor’s Note: TheLiberalOC.com has not become the campaign site for Obama for President.  It’s just that the news is breaking his way, and we’ve got to cover it.

    It’s ok Chris. I kind of got used to the LOC being the unofficial OC site for John Edwards until he punted. So this blog morphing into
    The Hope OC doesn’t come as a surpise to most.

    But it’s nice that we have some counterpoint columns by Andrew and Dan.

    The New York Times summary of polls for ht eSuper Tuesday states gives Hillary a comfortable lead.

    Honestly, I support Hillary but if Obama wins the nomination, he gets my support and my check.
