Obama/Biden=Epic Fail Updated

Obama has a problem. The problem? He sucks as a candidate. Let us face it, given all the press he has been getting, he should be up 20 points over McCain, but he's not. He's going into the Democratic Convention as the heir apparent, and he just announced his running mate, he should be getting a bump from both, he isn't. In a CNN poll released Friday, only 60% of Clinton supporters are going to vote for him, 17% said they would vote for McCain, and 22% said they'd stay home. And word on the street is than his announcement Saturday of Joe Biden as his running mate hasn't made a bit of difference.

At this point, it is McCain's race to lose. Meanwhile Hillary is sitting back and rubbing her hands together thinking that 2012 is her year.....

Update: according to this USA Today story, the breakdown of the 60% supporting Obama is not a solid block either.
Poll: More than half of Clinton backers still not sold on Obama
By Susan Page, USA TODAY
DENVER — Fewer than half of Hillary Rodham Clinton's supporters in the presidential primaries say they definitely will vote for Barack Obama in November, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds, evidence of a formidable challenge facing Democrats as their national convention opens here today. In the survey, taken Thursday through Saturday, 47% of Clinton supporters say they are solidly behind Obama, and 23% say they support him but may change their minds before the election. Thirty percent say they will vote for Republican John McCain, someone else or no one at all. The findings spotlight the stakes for Clinton when she addresses the convention Tuesday and when her name is placed in nomination. "I know a lot of hardened Clinton delegates who are going to be OK, they're going to wind up supporting Sen. Obama," Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, a Clinton supporter, told USA TODAY. "But they want to cast their votes for her. … I think that'll make it easier for there to be closure."
