Turning around Obama’s catchy, yet irritating “Yes we can,” Senator Clinton’s Ohio supporters chanted “Yes we will,” as she celebrated her big Ohio win. But the phrase of the evening should be, “Yes he did.” More specifically, Rush Limbaugh.
By encouraging his listeners to cross over in the open Texas primaries and vote for Hillary, Rush just might have saved Hill’s political career, in addition to salvaging Republican hopes to retain the White House. According to early exit polls, ten percent of the Democratic Primary voters in both Texas and Ohio were Republicans.
By late Tuesday, Obama’s five-percentage point lead from early voting had evaporated. Although it’s anyone’s guess as to who will emerge the electoral victor in Texas, Hillary looks like she’ll take the popular vote.
But make no mistake, the real winner of Tuesday was one radio host in Palm Beach.
