The Elizabeth Edwards Progressives

So where will John Edwards’ support end up?

I wrote yesterday about the two big camps of Edwards voters: white, manly working stiffs and Elizabeth Edwards Progressives.

I don’t have any indication of how the rural men are breaking, but the Elizabeth Edwards Progressives are moving to Barack in an avalanche.

Check out this Daily Kos straw poll.

Before he bowed out, Edwards was in first place with 42 percent, compared to Obama’s 41. Hillary Clinton brought up the rear at 9 percent.

Today, with Edwards out of the mix, Obama’s got 73 percent. Hillary’s got 11.

For those slow on the math…

That’s a 32 percent bounce for Obama.

A 2 percent blip for Clinton.
