The Pennsylvania Democratic Primary has the feel of the Super Bowl this year. Of course, I don’t like the 2 teams involved so I hope they bloody one another up nicely, thank you very much. The most recent RCP poll average has Hillary Clinton ahead by 5.1%. Folks, that won’t get it done. As we have stated before at Rightpundits, it is our view that Hillary must win by at least 15% in order to make a compelling case to the super delegates. That is straight from my source in the Philadelphia Democratic party. Sure, Ed Rendell is telling every press outlet that he can find that anything north of 6% is a substantial victory.
Privately, Rendell knows better but he has an incredible amount of loyalty to the Clinton’s as a result of the Clinton administration awarding Philadelphia tax-advantaged enterprise zones when he was Mayor of Philadelphia. My source indicates that Hillary, according to their internal polls, has a 7 to 9 point lead but that is up from 5 to 7 just last week. It seems that the cumulative effects of the recent hits that Obama has been receiving are finally starting to take a toll on his campaign. Now, if only Hillary hadn’t pretended to be Rambo, she might have a shot at that 15-point victory.
Feel free to enter your predictions for the upcoming Pennsylvania Democratic Party. The winner will receive the knowledge that their punditry is superior to all others. What other award is necessary? The deadline will be Tuesday at 12 pm est. My prediction is as follows:
Clinton – 54.2%
Obama – 45.8%
Then she will most certainly lose North Carolina by a substantial margin and the calls for her to withdrawal from the race will intensify.
