i take the opposite view.

those Republicans who have been voting Obama, might well choose him over McCain in the general. they would not choose HRC.

those who are now voting HRC, are doing so in order to help McCain by giving him the weaker opponent.

so, just ceed those two states to McCain

the GOP thanks you.

I'm torn. Since I live in Michigan, I would love to able to vote for Obama and actually have my vote count. However we did go against a party rule, one that wasn't even that unfair or illogical. If we could re-do the primary than yes, I would say I'd love to see that happen here and in Florida. However, if they just want to take the states as they stand now, that would be completely unfair.

yes Obama can move a few per cent in the Red states

these are states the go 65 - 35 or 62 - 38

so 5 points wont matter

it really only comes down to about 3 states

and in those 3 states
Hillary is much stronger.
I disagree. I think there are states that went red last time that are close enough for Obama to have a shot in.

Any Republican that votes for Obama in the general, is not a Republican.....

No I didn't. Obama wasn't on the ballot here.

Thats correct at the moment, there are about 5 or 6 of them. But provided McCain keeps Florida(15 point lead at the moment) and Ohio(behind by 3 at the moment), and picks up Pennsylvania(ahead by 1 at the moment), the loss of those 5 red states won't matter.

you've heard of Reagan Democrats ... though, given the nastiness of the Clinton campaign, they might just have damaged the eventual nominee enough that McCain might actually have a chance in November.

way to go, Bill and Hill.

it's always, always about you.

I'm just wondering what the situations in Michigan and Florida's primary voting have to do with the general election since they aren't even counting towards the nomination at this point.

PA will go Democratic. That I can assure you.

You could have voted "undecided", like many other Democrats or Independents. That's what I did, despite knowing that it was a futile effort and Hillary would come out the winner.

I would like Michigan to hold another primary but, at this point, I'm not holding my breath. We (stupidly) broke rules.
