Clinton doubles lead in Pennsylvania (DAVID PAUL KUHN, 3/20/08, Politico)

Clinton now leads Barack Obama 51 to 35 percent among likely Democratic primary voters, according to the Franklin and Marshall College Poll. In February, the same poll found that Clinton was ahead by half that margin, 44 to 37 percent.

The Franklin and Marshall survey comes on the heels of a poll by Quinnipiac University released Tuesday. It also showed Clinton doubling her lead, with 53 to 41 percent over Obama this week, up from 49 to 43 percent in late February. [...]

Another survey of likely Democratic primary voters on March 15 and 16, by Public Policy Polling, showed Clinton with a 56 to 30 percent lead over Obama.

John McCain will win PA.

As I noted some weeks back, Clinton would have been competitive in PA; Obama will be shooting for 40%.

Time for Republicans to cross over and vote for Obama. We need to keep them at each other's throats until they kiss and make up in Colorado.

At this rate what states CAN the Democratic candidate win? I have half a mind to call up the local GOP office and see if they are planning to actually field a House candidate and volunteer if no one else will.

B - and yet the national media, righty blogs, and so forth are still predicting a GOP wipeout this fall. I'm not ready to say the GOP is going to do well in the fall but the Dem infighting does provide some hope.

McCain will win PA - perhaps but's see how effective the Rendell machine is for the Dems
