Scott Rasmussen, a respected pollster, has released a new poll showing Hillary with a 1-point lead in Texas. It was only 2 weeks ago that Rasmussen had her ahead by 16 percent over Barack Obama. Worse yet for Hillary, Texas holds a primary and a caucus to determine the allocation of delegates that each will receive. We already know that Hillary Clinton’s track record in prior caucuses is less than stellar. In order to remain a viable candidate, Hillary must beat Obama by a large margin in Texas and Ohio. 2 weeks ago, Hillary had a 20-point lead in OH. Today, her lead according to the most recent RCP average is 8 points. A 12-point erosion over 2 weeks is actually positive news for her campaign. That is how bad things are at the moment for Hillary. Her tears will soon be real.
Is Hillary Clinton’s campaign finished if she does not achieve those decisive victories? Most pundits would answer yes to that question, but I honestly think that Hillary will fight on as long as she thinks Obama cannot get to the magic number of 2025 before the convention. Today’s events, with Hillary’s campaign trying to indirectly label Obama as a Muslim in order to play the fear card, will look like a veritable tea party compared to what is coming next.
The Democratic Party created the monster, better known as the Clinton’s. Now the monster threatens to destroy its creator. Democrat’s are just now learning that the Clinton’s will always put themselves before the party. The only way that Hillary Clinton’s campaign will end is if she can no longer raise money. The one time $5 million contribution was just that – a one time event. Hillary Clinton was fine with giving the campaign money as long as there was a chance that she could still win. After all, the aphrodisiac of power is certainly worth at least that much to her. It is highly unlikely that the Clinton’s would continue to self-finance if victory was improbable.
The in-fighting and nastiness that has become the race for the Democratic nomination is a best-case scenario for the GOP. All Republicans should be rooting for Hillary to stay in the race as long as humanly possible. A brokered, divisive Democratic convention would leave the Democrats crippled in November, no matter who wins the nomination. Is Hillary Clinton’s campaign finished? I sure as hell hope not. This is too much fun!
