Barack Obama has been closing the gap with Hillary in national polls, and part of the reason may be an influx of support from a group that he's referring to as "Obamacans"…
…disaffected Republicans who have drifted away from their party just as Eisenhower Democrats did and, more recently, Reagan Democrats in the 1980s. They include lifelong Republican Tricia Moseley, a former staffer for the late Sen. Strom Thurmond, the one-time segregationist from South Carolina. Now a high-school teacher, Moseley says she was attracted to Obama's positions on education and the economy.
Do we even need to make a joke here?
No, I didn't think so either.
