The Wall Street Journal's latest poll contains some food for thought for Hillary backers. The poll finds that Hillary would be beating John McCain by 6 points right now, as opposed to the 3 point margin that Obama currently has. That's probably not a big enough difference to make 130 delegates switch to Clinton and hand her the nomination. But it's not like Hillary and her supporters trying to allay concerns about Obama, either.
