The Race

THE RACE….I don’t have anything especially insightful to say about the latest Gallup daily tracking poll except to point out just how remarkable it is. After over a year of campaigning, 23 debates, a hundred million dollars of spending from both camps, and 37 primaries and caucuses, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are….

tied. Democratic Party voters are split almost exactly 50-50 between them.

I don’t think there’s any profound lesson to be drawn from this. I just think it’s striking that these two very different candidates have produced such a knife edge of opinion. It’s certainly nothing I would have predicted going into this thing.
