Cage Rage IV: Dems Want Hillary & Obama to Fight On
A solid majority of Democrats are not ready for either candidate to pull out of the race just yet… Right on.
Twenty-two percent (22%) of Democratic voters nationwide say that Hillary Clinton should drop out of the race for the Democratic Presidential nomination. However, the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that an identical number—22%–say that Barack Obama should drop out.
A solid majority of Democrats, 62%, aren’t ready for either candidate to leave the race. Nationally, Clinton and Obama are running essentially even among Likely Democratic Primary Voters in the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll.
Forty-seven percent (47%) of Obama supporters think Clinton should drop out. Thirty-eight percent (38%) of Clinton supporters say Obama should drop out. Those who remain undecided are a bit more likely to suggest that Obama should leave. But, it’s worth noting that less than half of Obama supporters say Clinton should withdraw, less than half of Clinton supporters say Obama should withdraw, and less than half of undecided voters say either should withdraw at this time.
Clinton leads Obama in Pennsylvania while Obama leads Clinton in North Carolina.
In another poll today, Gallup reported that 28% of Hillary supporters and 19% of Obama supporters would vote for John McCain if their candidate does not win the Democratic Primaries.
