Hillary Supporters Still Turned Off by Obama

Although the Obama campaign likes to claim he's won over Clinton supporters, the fact is he hasn't. Polls done of people who voted for Hillary reveal only a small percentage of those who said they would vote for McCain back in March, April, and June before he secured the nomination have changed their minds. Just consider that 28% of Hillary supporters said they would vote for McCain in March, 24% of them said they would vote for McCain in April, and 23% of them said they would vote for McCain in June.
Almost nothing has changed. A poll conducted in the last few days by NBC put the number at 21%, and another 27% are still undecided. That means only a quarter of those who said they would support McCain have changed their mind, and the undecided category has actually grown by at least that much and possibly more.
