Exit polls: Voters want the Democratic race to continue

(CNN) - The Democrats' long fight for the nomination does not seem to be a major concern for voters in Oregon. CNN's Oregon voter poll shows 62 percent say they'll be satisfied if the campaign continues. Only 28 percent say the campaign should end as soon a possible.

    Sure polls want this race to continue, because we just love dirty wars, dirty campaign, dirty words. As Obama said, this is not just about winning teh election but CHANGING people's mindset.

    "You are one disgusting racist."

    No more so than the anti-white filth that's been spewed by Obamatrons in thread after thread.

    Got to say - I love it when people "let it all hang out."

    My fantasy - which will almost certainly remain unfulfilled - is this contest goes to the convention, and civil war breaks out. That would certainly "clarify" things even further.

    This race should have been OVER after Super Tuesday and Obama's 11-streak win. Clinton can try, but she will never catch up-unless she continues to bend the rules.

    Clinton claims to be winning in popular vote by counting FL and MI in, but leaving all the votes from caucuses. That's what I call TRUE disenfranchisement! She's trying to rip the presidency from its rightful owner. Obama won, fair and square. She needs to get over it and be a part of his cabinet--because surely N.Y. does NOT want her back! At this point, I'm not sure if the Democratic party wants her back! :-)

    Hillary needs this race to continue. Her campaign is so far in debt, she needs supporters to keep donating blindly so she can recoup the $10.5 million she spent from her own pocket. Her speeches sound more like telethons than campaign rallies. By the way, how did someone with "35 years of experience" run up a $20+ million debt? What does this say about her leadership and judgement? Can we trust our economy in this person's hands?

    As Clinton said in the 90s: "I'm not going to be at home baking cookies"...........and yet you have these mindless women baking cookies supporting her.

    Open your eyes, she's not what she makes herself appear to be.

    Now, now Clintoons. Don't be upset that Obama will be the nominee. "You'll just have to hold your nose and take him".

    David in Florida – your vote doesn't even count, sucker. Simmer down ignorant fool. Let me guess, The Democratic Party has turned it's back on Clinton because they're going to nominate a black man? You may as well say it. It's crystal freakin clear. People like you are pathetic, sad and sorry.

    If Hillary supporters are foolish enough to keep giving money to a cause even Don Quixote would call hopeless, she's not going away. Her campaign is going down faster than Lindsay Lohan on a Motley Crue tour bus but people still buy (literally) into it. The flying monkeys should have brought Hillary her broom a long time ago.

    One has to ask themselves why the big fuss over Hilary's large margin victories, when no one is talking about her large margin losses back in February. What I also don't understand is why everyone keeps saying Obama cannot close the deal, well the question is why can't Hilary close the deal? Obviously, it you are looking for a commander in chief and who is ready from day one the answer would be Barack, due to the way he came out of nowhere and beat this candidate who says they have 35 years of experience and is getting spanked and had no plan past Super Tuesday. and Kentucky, let's not fool ourselves thi
