Makes sense to me.  A revote would be fun b/c Michigan primaries are open.

Those numbers are really useless in case of a revote.  Unlike Florida.

Not really. They're Clinton's realistic ceiling, although I've no idea how low she could go... probably not all the way to 15 points down, though.

I may conceivably reconsider.

Knowing me it's more likely than not.

Well, yea I agree with that.  I was really referring to the final result, not ceilings.  Smiley  Though it could be that result, realistically.

That depends.  I believe the current talk is for a closed primary.

If it's a primary, Obama probably wins narrowly.

If it's a caucus, Obama will destroy her.

I wonder how the Arab-American vote will split.

Probably for Obama... although that would be a suggestive generalization.

How can you have a close primary in a state with no party registration? 

Unless you're going to limit it to only those people who voted in the Democratic primary the first time around.  Tongue

I'm not sure.  That was just something I had read recently (can't remember where) but obviously it wouldn't work very well if there isn't any party registration.

Could you imagine Republican voters getting yet another vote? That would be awesome. I wonder if we'd see a noticable GOP turnout for Hillary just to screw things up.

Even that wouldn't be possible if Michigan does its primaries like Minnesota does, in which case there's no way of knowing in which primary a voter voted in.

Clinton would likely sweep the U.P and Northern L.P (Maybe with the exception of Marquette and the Grand Traverse area. Obama would also do well in the Metro Detroit area (winning Wayne and Oakland). Also the Grand Rapids area would go for him. The industrial towns bordering Ohio and the rural ones bordering Indiana would go for Clinton. The election would come down to the I-75 corridor. Bay City, Saginaw and Flint. Obama would carry the cities (cept Bay city) but he would need to win at least Genesse overall.

Going by what happened in Emmett County, he must have quite a following there, too.

So are you prepared to predict who you think would win?  It's going to be close either way isn't it?

I'm not bold enough to predict a winner. Though I can't see either getting below 47% or above 52%.
