(CNN) – Even as she faces pressure from some to call her White House bid quits, Hillary Clinton holds a commanding lead in West Virginia, according to a new poll released Friday.
Clinton has a 43-point advantage over Obama, 66 percent to 23 percent, according to a new survey from the American Research Group.
The poll was conducted entirely after Tuesday's primary results, and carries a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
The poll suggests Clinton’s white, working class base seems to be holding firm for her - at least in West Virginia, where that demographic makes up a substantial portion of the Democratic electorate.
West Virginia, one of the six contests left in the Democratic presidential race, votes next Tuesday.
Annnnnnnnnd we've known she was going to take W. Virginia for weeks. Don't tell me you buy her "whoever's going to win the presidency needs to win this state" argument. Because then I'm going to ask how "whoever wins the big states wins the presidency" and "whoever wins the red states wins the presidency" works with that. Or I guess I could just use the regular old "whoever wins the most wins the nomination", but Hillary doesn't accept that one.
Wow, she should move out of her suburban New York City mansion and move to Appalachia so she can be among her own- hard-working white people- and she can run for the Senate from there.
running be president is BIG BUSINESS fro clintons families and bill can be ultimate lobbies
Wow, Whoppee. Let's have a prarade. It would be funny if Obama showed up behind her.
CNN=Clinton News Network LOL
I DON'T GAMBLE. SO WHEN I TELL YOU THAT
I BET IT WILL GO DOWN BY 5 POINTS A WEEK,
I AM NOT GAMBLING.
Yea right..of course you have a lead. Obama is not seriously campaigning there anyway. He is giving this state and Kentucky to you. So that you can bow out gracefully.
And this means what at this point?
I'm from WV and I'm voting for Obama!!! This isn't news!! All the rednecks that live here would die before voting for a black man!!!!! You should see some of the looks I get wearing an Obama shirt!!!!!! YES I SAID IT BECAUSE ITS TRUE..not all..but most...they know who they are...GO OBAMA!!!!!!!!
Also, I thought CNN would give the polls a rest given how innacurrate the Indiana polls turned out to be.
Yeah... we already knew that.
It's a delegate game. There are 28 delegates there... She will get 15... Who cares?
Meanwhile Obama will have 2025 .. and be ready for McCain..Go Barack!
Thank you, CNN! This is great news. The race is so close, I know that Hillary will eventually win in the end.
congrats to her.
They have phones there?
Ok She'll nod her head and point her finger , but what about Paul v Clinton CNN?
And how many delegates do they have? LOL
Obama has already conceded WV–he keeps saying so in Oregon. I think after PA he knows he can't win over the back woods whites, and why should he try? WV has a very small population.
He's going to focus on the remaining larger, more liberal states.
The clock is ticking.......OBAMA 08. Let's just give her the 28 delegates in WV and move on...to the EXIT dance!!
Wow, people are quite racist and arrogant and ignorant on these blogs... not much intelligent to say? Take a stab a WVirginians using all the well-worn jokes, separate Hillary and Obama into purely racial categories... the race is tiring.
That's our girl! Take the white vote Hillary – why not, Obama has 95% of the black vote – 2 can play that game.
Is Obama not going to campaign in West Virginia at all?
Yes, Hillary holds a commanding lead there, but a victory there won't change the math. She has grit, fierce determination and an unbreakable will to win, but the stars in their courses have marched against her. It's over. The news media need to stop milking this.
