Hillary Clinton might have an easier time than Barack Obama in beating John McCain in Ohio this fall, according to a Survey USA poll released Friday morning.
The poll, conducted between last Friday and Sunday surveyed 542 registered Ohio voters and found that Clinton had 52 percent support compared to 42 percent for McCain and seven percent undecided.
The same poll included a match-up between McCain and Obama. Obama had a lead over McCain, but only of three percentage points – within the poll’s 4.3 percent margin of error.
Obama had the support of 47 percent of those polled, compared to 44 percent for McCain and eight percent who said they were undecided.
The poll was conducted for four Ohio television stations – WCPO in Cincinnati, WHIO in Dayton, WKYC in Cleveland and WCMH in Columbus.
