(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.
.N.Y.times said it best!!! she is toast!!
Unless she can get most delegates, most states won, most popular votes it doesn't matter.
What was it some one on the news media said a few days ago. Hicksville? We already knew she was going to be ahead in WV by large margins, just didnt think it would be that big. Maybe Obama needs to get over there and campaign some!?!?!?!
spencer, how would tha tbe different from what you have been doing since the first election?
It is hard not to succeed when you are running without a real opponent. A win in West Virginia will not change her fate but it could cause more trouble for the democratic party.
I'm so tired of this anti-WV stuff. It's an ignorant perception. Living in NYC I've encountered WAY more racism. And FYI Deliverance wasn't set in WV.
I think she will win the state only with a margin of about 15%...no more, even though Obama has not made any efforts to attend a town hall or rally there, her final margin will still not be bigger!!
Since the Superdelegates have decided to cave under pressure and back the popular candidate rather than the stronger candidate I will just have to write in Hillary's name. I hope other Hillary supporters will do the same. Lets see if he can win the white house with only the votes of the Obamabots
yup. they don't seem enjoy the darker skinned people in WVA ... is this margin a surprise?
Give the people of West Virginia a little more credit than that. They are not all racists and after listening to both Hillary and Barat they will relize the Barat should be president.
I believe they are not as racist as many people think. However we will see next Tuesday.
Why are all you Obama supporters so hateful????
All the comments about WV are quite offensive, and I'm from the midwest. To group them all as related or white or bigoted is pretty sad. We could say the same thing about areas heavily populated with blacks and how that turns out for Obama. There is absolutely no comparison, 92% of blacks vote for Obama, now that is racist.
Thanks to the people of beautiful W. Viriginia.
They know who should be the president.
Hillary is a strong person, experienced, for all the people, and a fighter.
Who care Hill...who cares...
Relax!!! She's not crazy... She knows this is over... She just wants to leave with a big win, so she can always claim "electability"... Just watch... she'll finally go away after WV...
It doesn't matter. She was always expected to win West Virginia by a big margin.
THE NOMINEE IS OBAMA. It's over.
Why should we ignore WV again? because it's white ??? white people don't count anymore ? :)
she knows it's over, but you can't claim you are a fighter while still quitting, even if it's painfully obvious.
this is more about saving face than the election now.
As it should be!! Clinton is still the strongest candidate of them all. Can anyone explain why North Carolina was so blind? Why should their mistake impact all the rest of us? Hillary has rebounded from this before, and I'm sure she will again!
Hillary is the favorite without a doubt. Its because of the way the democratic party sets up the rules for dividing the delegates that she is not in the lead. Another stupid blunder on the DNC's part. Michigan and Flordia being left out is one more blunder by the DNC. Obama is NOT
Keep going Hillary! Who cares if you lose those spineless men that are jumping ship. You don't need them. A true supporter will stand behind you no matter what. Obama supporters are blind and can't see that he is fooling them, they have adopted hate. Lets see what their reaction will be when he loses the general election. Maybe Americans should start reading the bible. They might learn something. There will always be war and rumors of war. Start reading Mathew Chapter 24 and compare it to what is happening today.
Obama is the delusional one in spite of what some of you bloggers have said about Hillary. He cannot win in Nov. and the supers know this. It has nothing to do with race, so don't bait ,Obama supporters. Hillary can win all of the swing states and the Republicans know this!!
WV matters beyond the primary. Someone above says she'll only get 15 delegates.
Not true, if she gets over 2/3 the vote she gets 2/3 the delegates. That's the dem primary rule.
Above people were saying big deal she was set to win there anyway. But they probably weren't saying big deal about NC since Obama was set to win there.
I've noticed a lot of Obama fans are young idiots or naive professionals out of touch with moderate dems.
Clinton has been getting the Reagan Dems (some do live in WV) all over this primary, and Dems really need that block to be sure to win in November.
