Read the ABC News/Washington Post poll

Democrats say by 67 percent to 29 percent that Hillary Clinton should stay in the race even if she loses in either Ohio or Texas today, but that number falls to 45 percent if she loses both, according to the ABC News/Washington Post poll conducted Feb. 28 – March 2. Nearly half of Obama supporters say Clinton should stay in the race if she loses one of the two states. But Democrats overall prefer Obama as their candidate in November by 50 percent to 43 percent, with a 4 point margin of error. In December, Clinton had led Obama 52 percent to 23 percent. The Wall Street Journal has a piece today about Clinton’s prospects for fighting on.
