Commentary
Commentary
This ROBBINS snapshot of longtime bellwether Peoria and Tri-County Area-based on employees responses reveals that Barack Obama-the Senator from Illinois enjoys a distinct advantage over his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton and Republican 'nominee' John McCain.
Respondents are clearly backing Senator Obama and appear to have abandoned Hillary Clinton significantly. Although it is clear that Senator Obama might have an advantage because he hails from Illinois-I don't expect that many people would have predicted this large a gap in outcome.
Indeed, callers were surprised from a couple of respondents supporting Obama who actually said "I'm voting for the black guy".
Moreover, there are Republicans and Independents supporting Obama in this ROBBINS poll.
Is it possible as this poll suggests that New York Senator Hillary Clinton is no longer considered a viable candidate for Democratic nominee by respondents who have ultimately decided for themselves that Senator Obama is going to win, and that the remaining races are simply for the exercise and news coverage?
