Dr. Pitney on the Democratic Primary

From The Charlotte Observer‘s campaign analysis:

“For Republicans, Super Tuesday may be the beginning of the end. For Democrats, it may only be the end of the beginning,” said John Pitney, a political science professor at Claremont McKenna College in California.

From Bennett Roth’s article in the Houston Chronicle:

Jack Pitney, a political science professor at Claremont McKenna College, said Hispanics make up one-fifth to one-fourth of the Democratic primary electorate in California.

“So far, she’s enjoyed a substantial advantage among Latinos,” Pitney said. “She needs to hold onto it in case Obama makes further gains among white voters.”

From Craig Gordon’s Newsday article:

“My prediction for Tuesday night is that both of them will claim victory,” Clinton and Obama, said Jack Pitney of Claremont McKenna College in California, which is voting Tuesday as well.

From Guy Kovner’s article in the Press Democrat:

“Anyone watching the news or reading their 401(k) statements is concerned,” said Jack Pitney, professor of government at Claremont McKenna College. “That’s what matters politically.”
Clinton has struggled to explain her 2002 vote to approve the use of force in Iraq, while Obama, as an Illinois state senator, spoke against it the same year. But Obama did not become an antiwar leader,Pitney and Sobel said.

“I’m not sure either one of them has a huge advantage on that issue,” Pitney said.
