It was bount to happen -- Hillary Clinton breaks 50 in a reputable national poll.


Here it is.


In October, numbers don't interest me so much as trendlines and crosstabs, and there's very little in the Post-ABC poll that will hearten her opponents.

Obama's campaign will probably poo-pooh this poll because they have to -- it doesn't pick up -our- voters, they'll say. Individually, poll-by-poll, sure, it's absurd to conclude much of anything. But they're not dolts: they're not oblivious to the trendlines.

Note also the 17pt lead for Giuliani.
