Drudge Claims Clintons Expect 25 Point Win In South Dakota

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Democrats, Hillary, South Dakota

Yesterday I wrote about the false meme that Obama somehow had South Dakota tied up. Today we’re seeing the “Wow, Hillary could win this big” meme starting to take shape.

Let’s review the facts again. A poll in late March/early April showed Obama with a 12 point lead, but 20% were still undecided. The only other poll after that time was the American Research Group’s poll showing a landslide for her today.

Frankly, I don’t really know what to expect tonight, but if anybody tells you that South Dakota has always been in Obama’s column, they don’t know what they’re talking about.
