Democracy Has Prevailed.

Poll Numbers

Saw this on the news this evening. Thought you'd want to get a gander at it.

Days after becoming his party’s presumptive nominee and receiving an endorsement from his chief rival, Hillary Clinton, Democrat Barack Obama has opened the general election campaign with a six-point edge over Republican John McCain, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
Obviously it's VERY early but there are signs that things will be very good for the Democrats:
In the head-to-head matchup, Obama leads McCain among African Americans (83-7 percent), Hispanics (62-28), women (52-33), Catholics (47-40), independents (41-36) and even blue-collar workers (47-42). Obama is also ahead among those who said they voted for Clinton in the Democratic primaries (61-19).
Wow! Senator Obama leads by 42 points among those who said they voted for Senator Clinton?

Of course, Senator McCain has his spots of good news as well. He leads among white men, 55 to 35 percent and white suburban women 44 to 38.
