Pennsylvania's primary, finally

April 21, 2008 - Steve Murch
I don’t know about you, but I thought April 22 would never come. Finally, the Pennsylvania primary will arrive tomorrow after six weeks of analysis, over-analysis and over-over-analysis. And I probably undersold how much analysis there was.

It seems like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton probably shouldn’t be able to run for senator again in their home states because they’ve spent so much time in Pennsylvania.

As much as everyone has waited for this primary, the outcome likely won’t decide anything. We’re going to have to wait for more primaries and maybe the convention before knowing the Democratic candidate for president. At least there won’t be six weeks until the next primary.

Republican presumptive nominee John McCain must be sitting back and enjoying it. His numbers against both Clinton and Obama have improved as time has gone by. Of course, he hasn’t had to push his agenda or message lately and the scrutiny has been squarely on the Dems.

Real poll figures won’t matter until a few weeks after both conventions have been concluded. Republican candidates usually get a boost following their convention and Democrats a bump in theirs. We won’t get a good feeling for how the voters are thinking until early in the fall.

Hang on, it’s going to be a long, long 6+ months.
