Prediction: Hillary wins popular votes in Texas AND Ohio (and RI)...

... but loses the delegate count in Texas thanks to the primacaucus format and the weighted delegate system that favors his strong areas.

But even though she doesn't really close the gap on delegates, and might actually slide further behind... she stays in the race for another month plus (through PA).

I hope I'm wrong.

Dunno about the popular vote, but Chuck Todd already did a bunch of different guesstimates on how the delegates will play out. He said the best Hillary could hope for is a net of 3 total delegates out of all 4 states. I think she's shot when it comes to having a shot at making the pledge delegate count even relatively close by the time every state has voted.

I was about to start a prediction thread myself but you beat me to it.

Anyway for some reason I feel the momentum going back to Clinton and I agree she is going to win TX, OH, and RI.

I think Obama is starting to fall and I don't think he will be the nominee UNLESS he wins tomorrow night.

Obama's support has yet to dip in any state he's gone and campaigned in.

I know but if he continuously loses the big states I can't see how he is a viable candidate can you?

I am not saying this at all.

I think she's prolonging his ultimate win.

She was up 21 points 2 weeks ago.

It's now a dead heat.

I understand what you are saying but I was just hoping with 11 straight wins he would crush her in Ohio and Texas and if he loses both that is not a good sign.

just my imo

First, there are 4 states... Vermont is the other one.

And no one is predicting him to win RI at all.

He could win Texas and there is a lone poll (outlier, IMO) showing him ahead in OH.

I think he might expand his lead in delegates even if he doesn't win the popular vote in Texas... as long as it's close in OH.

You seem to be feeding into the Clinton campaign rhetoric. Illinois isn't a big state? Virginia? Wisconsin? Georgia? Missouri? South Carolina? Minnesota?

Obama's going to win most of the states remaining after tomorrow even if Hillary stays in the race; states like North Carolina, Mississippi, Oregon, ect. It's going to be virtually impossible for Hillary to make the pledged delegate count close enough that it can be discounted.

It's been painfully evident that in every state they each campaign in, Clinton's base of support shrinks and Obama's base grows. He's basically having to overcome 20%+ deficits in each state and he's managing to draw even, or like in Wisconsin, completely blow her doors off.

It's quite clear who the better candidate is and I think it's why you hear people like Dodd and Richardson basically echoing that fact; it's a sign most of the Democratic establishment realizes it.

I think this Canadian NAFTA issue is going to hurt Obama in OH. And her "Red Phone" ad in TX was mocked by most people in the media, but I think it might work on the ground.

But for Hillary to win the whole thing, she's going to need to take over the delegate lead. And she really can't do that mathmatically. So she'd need the superdelegates to break with the popular will. And I don't think that they will do that. I'm not even sure they *want* to do that any longer.
