I canvassed two middle aged white male voters in California today: my husband and his best friend. Both are registered as Independents. Both will vote for Obama in the California primary Feb. 3rd. The friend says if Hillary gets the Dem. nomination, he will vote for any Republican except Romney in the general. Hubby says if Hillary gets the nomination, he will not vote.
