Of all people we asked, who knew it would be NBC who would poll for Hillary?

results:

while Obama leads McCain by three points in the poll, Clinton edges the Republican by six points in a hypothetical match up, 49 to 43 percent.

Then there’s the nod to us:

Obama’s inability to close the deal with some of Hillary Clinton’s supporters. According to the poll, 52 percent of them say they will vote for Obama, but 21 percent are backing McCain, with an additional 27 percent who are undecided or want to vote for someone else.

What’s more, those who backed Clinton in the primaries — but aren’t supporting Obama right now — tend to view McCain in a better light than Obama and have more confidence in McCain’s ability to be commander-in-chief.

Wow! 48% of 18 million! As for the “undecided” – I am one of them. The indecision is limited to “who OTHER THAN Obama” – just to be very clear. Should I vote third party of McCain?

Sure, there’s some patronizing

For these reasons, Hart believes that Clinton’s speech on the Tuesday night of the Democratic convention will be a significant event. “The Democratic convention is more than a coronation,” he says. “It is an event where the words of Hillary Clinton are probably going to be exceptionally important.”

I agree. the words I am waiting for are:

“I accept the nomination”

As a bonus: B0 gets pwned

Update

other significant numbers from that poll

About one in four McCain supporters say they are voting for him only because he is the Republican nominee or that their vote will be a vote against Obama.

Those would be two opposite groups of people in this 25% – and don’t underestimate the enthusiasm of the “nobama”.

More signs B0 should can it with the race card – hear that, Howard?

Though controversies related to race have sparked up throughout the campaign, only eight percent of voters say McCain has brought up the issue unfairly, 12 percent say that about Obama and 11 percent say they both have done so.

and to end on a light – an extremely light note – what they like about their candidate:

As for Obama, voters say they like that he will bring change (10 percent), is inspirational (9 percent), is a good speaker and a fresh face (7 percent each), has integrity (5 percent) and is young and intelligent (4 percent each).

Integrity?
