OK – I lied, it ain’t happening. What would be the thinking across the country if 30% of Republicans or Conservatives planned to vote for Barrack Obama? It would be seen as the death knell for McCain. So what should we think about the current trend of mass defections of Democrats from Obama?
New data released today shows that 30% of conservative Democrats plan to vote for John McCain. Nineteen percent (19%) of White Democrats say the same.
In 2004 only 11% of democrats defected to Bush. Now I know 11% of all democrats is not the same as 30% of conservative Democrats or 19% of white democrats – but these numbers are pretty damn stunning. The question is whether this trend is increasing, ebbing or holding. Only time will tell, but most democrat candidates, at this time in the election process, have 10%+ leads on their challengers.
Obama is in trouble, and the help he is getting from the likes of Ludicrous (aptly named) is just going increase his problems with Americans looking for a leader instead of an American Idol.
