I think you're imagining support where it's dropping off the fastest. Hillary is a neocon, and the liberal left is starting to recognize that. I listen to a lot of political podcasts, including on the left. Hillary is not well loved by progressives. She is seen as a center-right neocon who is preventing real progressive candidates from having a chance.
The left is going through their own "tea party" like split. They're not going to have their act together by 2016. They are now where the Republicans were in 2008. Hear me now and believe me later.
