Call it dead even

The Field Poll that has Clinton+2 is a strange poll.

Anybody believe that 30% are undecided?  That what Field has.  I'd throw that out

The Field Poll has traditionally been the best poll in California, though that 30% undecided figure is a bit ridiculous.

Yeah, they really don't push people. do they? At least it isn't as bad as that Montana poll that had Huckabee winning with 16% of the vote and 48% undecided.

I agree usually Field is the best.  I cannot believe 30% undecided either.  It's a strange one

The majority of that 30% will break for Clinton; my prediction.

Of course, you could also assume, after all this time if Hillary cannot get the voters in the Field poll, it will bode well for Obama. 

I still think it's just a strange poll

I'd think that Clinton functions as more of the incumbent, so that 30% would probably break mostly to Obama.

Disagree if the 30% is really undecided.  Clinton is in big trouble.  She has lost momentum and it figures not to break back to her since she had huge leads

On what basis?

Clinton has been the one losing in the polls, and undecideds rarely "wobble" back to their original candidate when there is this sort of momentum.

Then again, if those all are very marginal Clinton supporters considering Obama...but that would be a rare occurrence not really supported in other polls.

No, wait until she doesn't have enough delegates.  The establishment super delegates favor her

And at least there was some justification for that.

I doubt that if Obama wins the elected delegates over Hillary that the supers will go against the elected delegates to throw the nomination towards hillary. They would be stupid to do that.

I have a feeling that's not true: way more big names have endorsed Obama than have endorsed Hillary, and if anyone has the clout to win over super-delegate votes it's Ted Kennedy. Plus most red-state dems will vote for Obama because they don't want to be beat over the head with attack ads featuring hillary clinton for the next 4-8 years.

Well, it would be pretty embarrassing if Gore endorsed Obama tomorrow only to have Obama lose Tennessee the day after that.

Do people even think of Tennessee as his home state anymore?
