If Hoboken is any indication, Senator Barack Obama looks strong in the Garden State, which has been a Democratic stronghold since the 1980s. The majority of voters MTV News spoke with Tuesday morning said they were supporting the Illinois senator's candidacy, and Obama supporters were stationed at virtually every street corner, handing out informational flyers and "Obama '08" stickers.the obama tidal wave is crushing clinton in hoboken (and i suspect all of hudson county, new jersey). but our representative in the house, a superdelegate, has already pledged himself to clinton. sure, he can UN-pledge, but damn... i'm still annoyed over this.
MTV News did not speak with a single supporter of Republican candidates McCain, Mitt Romney or Mike Huckabee in Hoboken — we simply couldn't find any. Hoboken is evidently an Obama kind of town, but will the rest of New Jersey follow suit? We'll have to wait until the polls close at 8 p.m. to see which way the vote swings.
also, i was dem voter #30 at my polling station table this morning. the guy in front of me was republican voter #3. LOL! only 3 republicans showed up at that particular table in the first hour and a half of voting.
