After the results of the recent Gallop poll about Democrats possibly defecting to the side of GOP presidential nominee Senator John McCain of Arizona, Democratic co-frontrunner Senator Hillary Clinton of New York has addressed a crowd of supporters in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
Instead of attacking Democratic co-frontrunner Barack Obama, Clinton had urged unity within the Democratic Party. The results of the Gallop poll had revealed at about one-quarter of Democrats that support Hillary Clinton will defect to John McCain should Senator Barack Obama of Illinois win the Democratic nomination. In short, they are going to vote Republican should Obama win the Democratic nomination.
Also, a small fraction of Obama supporters would do the same thing if Clinton wins the Democratic nomination.
This strengthens the fact that the Democrats are bitterly divided between Clinton and Obama.
“Please think through this decision,” Clinton said in regard. She added: “It is not a wise decision for yourself or your country.”
Clinton made note that the presidential race let alone the Democratic race has been very heated. But, she had urged supporters not to abandon the Democratic Party should Barack Obama win the Democratic nomination.
Clinton noted that while she and Obama have their differences, they do not compare to those of McCain. In short, Clinton has urged the Democratic Party remain unified.
