Is the Party Running Behind?

Polls show working class Americans abandoning the Obama ship like it's the Titanic.
Reflecting that shift, a poll released Thursday by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press showed Clinton's lead over Obama nationally among whites who did not attend college had increased from 10 points in March to 40 points at the end of April.
Ironically, this is resulting in more Super D's declaring for Barack. Why? They don't want to be put in a position to deny voters the nominee they've chosen, they fear of dragging things out longer, and they have huge contempt for the Clintons.

This rationale leaves out one important reality - Barack can't win, Hillary can. And, it could end up putting the party just where it doesn't want to be, embracing a candidate (Barack) who voters don't want.

How sweet it is!
