Recent poll by Reuters shows that this race is wide open.

Obama's lead over Clinton narrows: Reuters poll | U.S. | Reuters

These candidates have to start choosing their specific policy positions and tell us exactly what they are going to do....No more trying to be all things to all people.

clearly obama's star is falling on the national level but there really is no way to predict how this will all work out until the election is over.

But Obama has the lead and Florida has been taken from Clinton. Her chances are less than 10% now.

March polls for a November election are notoriously poor indicators.

The latest Time-Warner/ABC (3-17) Shows:

Hillary Rodam Clinton polling 49% against McCain
Barack Hussein Obama polling 47% against McCain

Hillary has gained and Barack has lost ground since last weeks poll. It will be interesting to see if there is a "snowball effect" over Jerimiah Wright's pulpit vulgarity, racist and anti-American remarks. The media seem to be narrowing the focus on Obama being a member of Wright's congregation for 20+ years and not objecting. Also they are looking into whether children, specifically Obama's daughters, were witness to Wright's vulgar words and gestures.

No matter how many audacity of hope and change speeches Obama gives, it's done. The media will always put them in the same sentence. This will not go away.

According to this poll, the state will go to McCain if the primary doesn't count.
The Buzz: Florida Politics | tampabay.com - St. Petersburg Times
Clip:
Howard Dean and Barack Obama may insist Florida’s Democratic presidential primary was meaningless, but a new poll shows Florida Democrats aren’t buying it, and one in four may not back their party's nominee in November if Florida winds up with no voice in the nomination.
