Fight For Pivotal Pennsylvania Primary

April 22, 2008

The polls are open in Pennsylvania, and the critical primary is Hillary Clinton's to lose.

"Let's make history," said Clinton.

With her family by her side and the support of the governor and other key Democrats, Clinton is leading in the polls.

But Barack Obama still barnstorming the state on election day has outspent Clinton 3 to 1. And although he's downplaying expectations, the Illinois Senator is close on her heels.

Over the past few weeks, both campaigns went increasingly negative and the latest polls show Democrats are now so divided that nearly 20 percent say if their candidate doesn't get nominated they'll vote for Republican John
McCain.

Pennsylvania is playing a crucial role in the election process for the first time since the 70's.

Obama is ahead in the delegate count and Clinton must have a strong showing here to quiet mounting pressure to get out of the race.

And with historic numbers of newly registered young voters expected to cast their ballots, this primary may not only be decisive but also unpredictable.
