Obama Leading Hillary in Ohio

Saturday, February 23, 2008

Barack Obama is leading Hillary Clinton in Ohio, according to a Decision Analyst survey of voters planning to vote in the March 4th Democratic Primary.

The survey was conducted February 21 and 22.

Decision Analyst is a national survey research firm. Decision Analyst projections indicate that if the election were held today Obama would win 54% to 46% over Clinton. The survey’s margin of error is 3 percentage points.

    If Obama can get the rural vote in Ohio he will take the state in a major sweep.

    There’s an article in The Plain Dealer about the strong support Obama is receiving from Black ministers in Cleveland. I was glad to see it as a lot of Black people seemed apathetic to me when I talk to them about Barack.

    Conventional wisdom said both Texas and Ohio were Hillary country. But no more. According to the latest Washington Post poll, among independents Obama is leading Clinton by 14 percentage points in Ohio and by 13 in Texas. These are huge margins and I think impossible for Hillary to overcome. Here in Connecticut, I saw a Quinnipac poll that said even Republicans are leaning to Obama.

    Good morning folks,
    I have read similar polls and trends also. I think the union endorsements are a factor in upcoming races considering how endorsements were supposed to be a non factor this primary season.

    It’s time to wrap this up. Hillary needs to get out of the race so that Obama can start really concentrating on McCain.

    We all remember what the Republicans are capable of, and it’s going to take every single ounce of our determination to make sure that we make a big change in leadership in the White House this fall.

    People are ready, but we can count on all kinds of terror alerts and other attempts to scare the American people back into submission. I truly believe that Obama will be able to counter all of this, but he needs to be able to devote his time and energy to it as soon as possible, which would be March 5, at the very latest.

    Press Release:
    updated 9:30 a.m. PT, Fri., Feb. 21, 2008
    WASHINGTON – Pope Benedict XVI will visit the White House on April 16 during his first visit to the United States as pontiff.
    White House spokesman Scott Stonzel said Senator Barack Obama, D-Ill and the pope would continue discussions they began during Obama’s trip to the Vatican in June 2006 on the importance of faith and reason in reaching shared goals.
    Stonzel said the goals include advancing peace throughout the Middle East and other troubled regions, promoting interfaith understanding and strengthening human rights and freedom. The pope was also expected to address the United Nations, visit Victory Monument one of 9 Chicago Landmarks and celebrate Mass in Chicago Ill. and Washington during his April 21-25 trip.

    This is typical of the pattern. As primaries approach, undecided voters and voters who were supporting Clinton based on name-recognition start to look at their choices more seriously. Then, they choose Obama.

    A take home lesson is that a lot of voters tune out the campaigns until really close before the elections.

    wow…holy shit…I had NO idea….I did go see him tonight with 6-6 and I will blog on it tomorrow….but this poll news is wonderfull..thank you…

  12. Mauigirl says:

    I saw someplace else that he’s also leading in Texas. This could be it!

  13. Debbie says:

    He is also leading in an online poll that I am conducting in Ohio, especially among respondents who clicked on a link to the survey from a blog. Even among respondents recruited in a more “traditional” (or scientific) manner, he still has lead. So far, he is ahead among respondents who already voted by absentee ballot and among those who are likely to vote on March 4th.
