Well, to be fair, this is just one state and it's being polled by an unreliable Republican firm.  Tongue

He is if Sanders goes third-party.  If the 8% who support Sanders in the primary are willing to vote for him in the general as a third-party, Obama would be in serious trouble as the Republican will win at least 8% of Democrats as well.

Yeah, very unreliable:

In our final poll of the New Hampshire Republican primary for US Senate, we find Kelly Ayotte leading Ovide Lamontagne by 4 points, 35% to 31%.  Bill Binnie is third with 14%, Jim Bender with 10%, the generic “another candidate” receives 3%, and 7% are undecided. 

Final results:

38% Kelly Ayotte
37% Lamontagne
14% Binnie
  9% Bender
  2% Others

They're considered unreliable in General election polls so I'm thinking, as a Republican firm, they probably aren't that great for Democratic primaries.

They are not more unreliable than Rasmussen. They got the LA & DE race right, like Rasmussen. But they blew CO Governor, just like Rasmussen.

The only bad thing is that they did not poll enough General Election races to make a fair analysis.

They nailed the KY-Sen primary as well.  I think Magellan got TX-Gov primary right as well. PPP was the big loser in the Texas primary.

Assuming that Hillary still wants to be the president, let's consider how she would get to the White House.  Here are her three options, depending on how Obama does:

1. Run for the open seat in 2016 if Obama gets a second term
2. Run against the Republican incumbent in 2016 if Obama loses
3. Primary Obama and try to win the general in 2012

The best case scenario for her to win the presidency is #1, where she doesn't have to run against any incumbents.  Therefore, if she wants to run again, she would want Obama to be re-elected if at all possible because #1 is preferable to both #2 and #3.  Of course, Obama could be very unlikely to win re-election as of late 2011.  

If this is the case, Hillary Clinton would weigh options 2 and 3.  We also have to remember that if Obama is doing badly enough to lose a primary to Clinton, the national environment in 2012 is probably very anti-Dem to begin with.  In a scenario where Obama is very unpopular, any Democrat would be a severe underdog in the general election.

  But while she knows the environment is strongly against her in 2012, she does not know whether the Republican incumbent will be loved or despised in 2016.  It could be another bad cycle for Democrats, but it could also be a very good year if the GOP incumbent is unpopular.  So because she knows that she faces almost impossible odds in 2012 even if she wins the primary, running against the Republican incumbent in 2016 would always be a better strategy for her.

There is no sensible reason for her to choose #3 over #2, unless Obama is still pretty strong and she specifically wants to ruin his re-election bid.

I´d say the first part of your sentence is closer to reality, as Clinton actually won NH in 2008.

Hillary won around 39% of the vote in the New Hampshire primary, so with 28%, she's performing at 11% less than what she won in 2008.

At best, she could win 40% of the vote in the primary against Obama because not all of her supporters from 2008 would vote for her against the incumbent.

The reason I thought it might be kinda significant is because its against an incumbent President and around a year before the aucutal primary would take place.
