Uncommitted = Undecided, since we aren't in Michigan anymore.  (Yes, a couple percent may pick it, but it won't be a factor)  [unless there's a crazy tradition of voting Uncommitted in RI...but considering RI doesn't exactly have a tradition of primary voting in the first place, I doubt it].

Clinton wins RI without question--the state is all but made for her.  The question is whether she can break 62% statewide...and that doesn't appear at all likely, if we can read anything from this poll.

So Clinton gets 12 delegates to Obama's 9.  Might as well add that into my results thread... Wink

When you've got only two candidates to pick from and the person in the lead gets 36%, you know your poll has problems.

How would Obama have barely managed 40% of the vote in Massachusetts but then win in Rhode Island?  I don't see that much difference.

The only things I can think of are more time campaigning and better national numbers. Doesn't make it likely, however.

I'll laugh if he actually wins Rhode Island though...I want to see the ridiculous excuse Clinton's Campaign comes up with for losing it.

That statement makes no sense and is a perfect example of an oxymoron.

Sigh, BRTD, seriously.

People are using "MA-y" to mean full of the working-class machine Democratic voters that put Clinton over the top in Massachusetts.  I'm saying that not only does Rhode Island have more of those type of voters than Connecticut, but Massachusetts too.

By the way, it's a paradox, not an oxymoron.

Favors Clinton, but could be interesting.  Does Chafee get involved here in anyway, while he hasn't said it outright he has hinted at favoring Obama.  Also the state is VERY anti war (I would say more so than MA, and the most anti war state other than VT), so the war could play a role, especially if the increase in violence we have seen over the last few days continues

Sheldon Whitehouse beat Chafee and he supports Clinton.  I think he wins.

Looking back now, I wish I supported Chafee.

As for why I think Obama might win RI, it's because I think the Clinton campaign may essentially collapse before the 4th. I could be wrong about that though.
