this actually made my stomach churn.  If true, this is really bad news for Obama.

I fear I may have been correct when I made the prediction that Wright has made Obama unelectable.

You're basing that on one ARG poll from South Dakota?

If Obama actually manages to win by 10 points tomorrow, this poll should be classified "worst ever" ...

Summary:
Clinton:
60%
Obama:
34%
Other:
0%
Undecided:
6%

Based on ARG's track record, the expected actual result would be:

Other 68%
Undecided 40%
Obama 0.0005%
Clinton -18%
Rounding error 10%

It doesn't actually cost them that much.  It's not like it's that expensive to program a random number generator.

To take ARG too seriously, maybe this is why the Clinton campaign has been trumpeting South Dakota "pulling closer."  I mean, ARG sucks, but does it suck by >26 points?

Perhaps, SD just wants to be awkward. If it votes Clinton, it will stand out on the map like a bleeding sore thumb

No more than Bush should render McCain unelectable. The US ain't heading in the wrong direction because of insignificants like Wright

South Dakota is a closed primary.

Every single major party figure in South Dakota has endorsed Obama (Daschle, Johnson, Herseth-Sandlin, all but 1 DNC member).

In February, the North Dakota caucuses picked Obama 61-37.

Maybe the Dakotas are just that different, maybe caucuses do have that large of a pro-Obama bias...

...or ARG just sucks.


Wouldn't it be amusing, though, if Clinton won South Dakota but didn't even show up to celebrate the victory?

I donīt think that either Obama or Clinton will win comfortably tomorrow. I think they will be within 5 percent. For example, Obama did quite well in the ID caucuses, but "just" won 58% in the "beauty" primary.

A good way for ARG to end the primary season.

Yes, you're quite right. Caucuses obviously inflate the margin of victory. But these "beauty contests" have deflated turnout considerably, haven't they? I think that should be relevant.

Indeed.  This poll is making me nostalgic for polls like these:

http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=51096.0

from before we all realized just how much of a sham ARG was.  ARG's polling of the 2008 primaries was truly in a class of its own.  Really, just thinking back on it all.....my eyes are getting misty.

Maybe they only conducted their poll on a Sioux reservation or something. The Sioux and Crow hate each other, and Obama is now an honorary Crow.
