Tayor Marsh and the Clintonites: Dittoheads

Taylor Marsh and her Legion of Doom have expended much hot air trashing Obama for gaining independent and Republican votes, arguing that this somehow disqualifies him from being the nominee. And now…

Dave Weigel:

It’s a similar story in Texas, where Limbaugh has the most listeners of any of these states. Obama won the Republican vote 52-47, but conservatives (22 percent of all voters, up from 15 percent in the Kerry-Edwards primary) went against Obama. For the first time since Super Tuesday, they were Clinton’s best ideological group: She won them 53-43. And Clinton won 13 percent of the people who said Obama was the most electable candidate.

Ohio didn’t wind up being very close, but Clinton won the Texas primary by about 98,000 votes out of 2.8 million cast. If the exits are right, about 252,000 of those voters were Republicans, and about 618,000 were conservatives. Clinton truly might have won the Texas primary on the backs of Rush Limbaugh listeners. 

Oh yes, so much more electable and progressive.
