So says Drudge. By 15 points no less.
Hillary Clinton’s inner circle now fears a stinging defeat is likely in North Carolina.
“Look, we worked hard and gave it our best shot, but the demographics, well, they are what they are,” a top campaign source explained to the DRUDGE REPORT as voting began Tuesday morning.
The campaign now believes a 15 point loss, or more, would not be surprising. Her team will work hard throughout the day to lower all expectations in North Carolina.
We all know how this expectations game works, and this could always be a ploy, but something tells me that North Carolina’s demographic just wouldn’t turn on Obama that much. The state is too much like Virginia and South Carolina, which brought him overwhelming victories.
So if he pulls off a big win in NC and keeps it close in Indiana, what’s the story? Because he’ll have netted a lot more delegates than her out of the day.
More as it develops…
