McCain In, Obama on a roll

McCain keeps rolling towards the nomination with a critical win last night in Virginia. Obama keeps rolling down the path to success starting with important wins last night in Maryland, Virginia and DC.  While this is not surprising that he won, the underlying demographic data that showed up in the exit polls is.  He’s starting to win in what are traditionally Clinton’s core supporters.  Those that are over 65, make less than $5ok/year and women.  Turnout is also astounding for a primary election.  It seems the game is as strong as ever.  States that were worried they wouldn’t matter and didn’t make the jump to “Super Tuesday” are now seeing visits from their candidates.  Wisconsin, Ohio and Texas are the next battleground states.  Clinton appears to be facing quite a number of challenges moving forward with the potential erosion of her base of support, campaign reshuffling and looking like she’s attempting to compete for Wisconsin delegates again after all the media reports that they were going to focus on delegate rich Ohio and Texas.  Time keeps on rolling and the next contests aren’t until the 19th.  It’s going to be a long wait until next week for those of us that are becoming the campaign-watching junkies.
