In this latest survey of 2,103 likely Democratic primary voters by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN uh-pe-ack) University, 26 percent of Clinton supporters would switch to Arizona Sen. John McCain, the Republican, in November if Obama were the Democratic nominee. Nineteen percent of Obama backers would switch to McCain if Clinton were the Democratic nominee. A look at other groups shows:
- White voters for Clinton 57 - 37 percent, compared to 56 - 38 percent last week;
- Black voters back Obama 86 - 8 percent, compared to 75 - 17 percent;
- Women back Clinton 54 - 40 percent, unchanged from 54 - 41 percent last week;
- Men are for Obama 51 - 43 percent, compared to a 48 - 44 percent tie last week;
- Reagan Democrats back Clinton 55 - 40 percent;
- Voters under 45 go with Obama 55 - 39, while older voters back Clinton 55 - 40 percent.
"A bigger problem for Democrats looms in Pennsylvania. One out of four Clinton voters, including a third of men, say they will vote for Republican Sen. John McCain in November if Obama is the Democratic candidate."

Obama missing the point
For Obama to say what he said is to minimize not only the plight of rural people, but to minimize the people themselves. If John McCain or Hillary Clinton had made similar comments about urban residents or African-Americans, they would be universally decried as racists and would stand about as much chance of becoming our next president as David Dukes, the former Louisiana legislator who was an avowed supporter of the Ku Klux Klan.
