One thing to keep in mind, however, is though Hillary Clinton essentially has 100 percent name recognition, she’s only polling at 36 percent among Democrats, according to the RCP average. That means that nearly two-thirds of Democrats know who she is, know her positions, but would prefer somebody else get the nomination. Right now Edwards is polling at about 11 percent and Gore at 17 percent, and both of them are attracting support from the anti-war base. So where does their support go if Edwards drops out and Gore decides not to run? While Hillary is still the favorite to get the nomination, my point is that there is still a huge opening for Obama to consolidate the anti-Hillary vote. Personally, I think he’ll eventually be the nominee. Most would disagree. But either way, it’s way too early to be calling her inevitable.
