Dems Want Hillary to Stay in Race

Posted on May 12, 2008

It appears that a large majority of Democrats couldn't care less what Donna Brazile, Chris Matthews or Keith Olbermann thinks. 64% of Democrats in a Washington Post/ABC News survey want Hillary Clinton to stay in the race.
Pushing back against political punditry, more than six in 10 Democrats say there's no rush for Hillary Clinton to leave the presidential race , even as Barack Obama consolidates his support for the nomination and scores solidly in general-election tests.

Despite Obama's advantage in delegates and popular vote, 64 percent of Democrats in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll say Clinton should remain in the race. Even among Obama's supporters, 42 percent say so.
If Obama is the nominee, a solid 39% want Clinton as the VP, with 59% of African-Americans wanting Clinton as the VP pick.

Tomorrow is the West Virginia primary, which does matter -- regardless of what those same, out of touch pundits say.
