Polls: Clintonistas Going McCain

Two polls separate polls show a substantial number of Hillary Clinton’s supporters are considering voting for a Republican president, rather than Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama in November.

A USA TODAY/Gallup poll conducted last Thursday-Sunday found 23 percent of Clinton’s supporters said they may vote for GOP presidential candidate John McCain in November. 47 percent said they were “solidly” Obama.

A NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, released late last week, showed similar results. According to their poll 21 percent of Clinton’s supporters are planning to vote for McCain and 27 percent are undecided. 52 percent of the Clinton supporters polled said they will vote for Obama.
