Hawaii and Wisconsin Go to the Polls

At least one of Tuesday’s Democratic primary nominating contests should be
worth watching. Hawaii, the state that Barack Obama was born in, is expected to go his way in convincing fashion. However, Wisconsin increasingly looks like it will come down to the wire:

“Recent polls show Clinton has a chance in Wisconsin at ending Obama’s winning streak. According to an American Research Group poll conducted February 15 and 16, the two candidates are in a statistical tie, with Clinton at 49 percent and Obama at 43 percent. The poll’s margin of error is plus-or-minus 4 percentage points.

Another poll of Wisconsin Democratic primary voters conducted by Research 2000 for Madison television station WISC also indicates the race is too close to call. The WISC poll had Obama at 47 percent and Clinton at 42 percent. The poll’s margin of error is plus-or-minus 5 percentage points.”

I’m hoping that Obama can at least get a draw in Wisconsin (though I’d love a win). A “loss” here will definitely put a (minor) dent in his momentum going into the crucial Ohio and Texas primaries on March 4, but a win tomorrow might end up pushing him over the top.
