Poll: 68% precent of Dems Satisfied With Obama As Nominee -- & 45% of Republicans Aren't With McCain
A new number from the latest Hotline/Diageo poll goes a long way toward dispelling the idea that Barack Obama is leading a seriously divided party. On
the contrary, the poll suggests that it's John McCain who has a problem in this regard.
The poll, conducted in the wake of Obama's clinching the nomination and including sampling dates from before Hillary Clinton's final concession,
found that 68% of Democratic primary voters were satisfied with Obama as the nominee, with 30% preferring someone else.
By contrast, only 52% of Republican primary voters were satisfied with John McCain as their nominee, with 45% preferring someone else. And this is
despite the fact that McCain sewed up his nomination months ago, while Democratic emotions were still raw when this poll was conducted.
