New WBZ/SurveyUSA poll shows Clinton whipping McCain in Massachusetts head-to-head 56%-41%, but Obama technically tied, with a 48%-46% lead.
Unlikely that Obama doesn't win the state in November, and likely by a wide margin. But some state Republicans have been tentatively saying that Obama/McCain won't be the drag on the rest of the ballot that Kerry/Bush was for the GOP in '04. They might be onto something.
Interestingly, one big difference comes from Hispanics, who poll 3-1 Hillary over McCain, but 3-1 McCain over Obama. But here in Mass., many local GOP candidates have been awfully willing to antagonize Hispanics (see: Ogonowski).
