TARGET RICH ENVIRONMENT:

Millions of Hillary Voters that Palin Can Win Over Fred Barnes, 9/02/08, Weekly Standard)

[The latest Journal/NBC News poll] found that 11 percent of the electorate would vote for Hillary but not Barack Obama, who defeated her for the Democratic presidential nomination. Assuming roughly 120 million voters (as in 2004) and doing some simple math, the Hillary-only bloc consists of 13.2 million voters. Sixty percent of these voters are women. That’s 7.9 million voters, a chunk of the electorate large enough to swing a close election.

That’s not all. Of the 13.2 million voters, half said they have a negative view of Obama, which explains why they won’t vote for him. That’s 6.6 million voters. And 65 percent identified their ideology as moderate or conservative. That’s 8.6 million voters.
