A new poll out from Franklin and Marshall College (formerly the Keystone Poll) has Clinton opening up a huge lead in Pennsylvania:
Hillary Clinton has increased her lead over Barack Obama in the race for the Democratic nomination, 51% to 35% among likely voters. Her lead among likely Democratic primary voters has doubled since the February 2008 poll, conducted February 13-18, when her advantage was seven points, 44% to 37%. Clinton leads among voters in virtually every demographic group. Obama has the advantage among non-whites and voters in Philadelphia, but he does not yet hold an advantage among young adults--a group he has won by large margins in many early primary states. Male voters are evenly split between Clinton and Obama, and nearly one in seven (13%) likely Democratic voters remains undecided.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
