New poll shows closer race

The Associated Press reports:

Hillary Rodham Clinton, 50 percent
Barack Obama, 43 percent.
Clinton holds a 16-percentage point lead over Obama among Ohio Democrats from union households, who comprise one in four of the party’s likely voters. Obama has an 11-percentage point edge over Clinton when Democrats are asked who is more electable in November. Even some groups that normally back Clinton – including women and less-educated people – are split over who has the best chance to capture the White House. She’s more trusted than Obama to oversee the economy. Clinton as usual is running strongly among seniors and loyal Democrats, while Obama does well with blacks, college graduates, higher earning people and the young. A third overall said they could still change their minds.
The ABC News-Washington Post poll was conducted Feb. 16-20 and involved telephone interviews with 611 likely Democratic voters in Ohio. It had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

If you have a few minutes, I am also conducting an online survey about Ohio's 2008 Presidential race.

Click Here to take survey

The survey primarily targets the Democratic base; however, Republicans and Independents can also take this survey.

You will not be required to identify yourself to take the survey, however, you are given the option to do so at the end of the survey if you want to get involved or participate in future surveys.

Note: Because this survey primarly targets the Democratic Base, the results cannot be projected to the Ohio's voting population with statistical certainty. However, I hope the survey provides some useful "directional" information about the overall attitudes and candidate preferences in this state.

They were both great. I really like them both as does most of the Democratic Party. I am for Obama but Hillary is a strong strong woman and I wish her all the best. She's a fighter.

ABC for me----- Anybody but Clinton

Horrible, disgusting woman. Take the working man's money and subsidize the uneducated and lazy.
Everything is free and we'll have Peace on Earth. Additionally, everything is Mr. Bush's fault; how lame.

everything is Mr. Bush's fault.

well, actually most of it is. thats why he has historys lowest approval rating of any president.

who knows, maybe in 100 years when we finally get out of iraq, bush'es legacy will be redemeed and we will think of him as a lincoln (alberto the torture guy is pretty funny)

Our enemies haven't attacked us on a 9-11 scale and Mr. Bush deserves some credit for that.
Mr. Bush has become a scapegoat for every problem in America today and that's ridiculous.
Our real problem is too many people that are not educated and want to let the government pay for them to sit on their asses.
Mr. Bush didn't send our jobs overseas, the skirt chaser in chief did.
Bush being gone will make a lot of you happy, but please, not more Clintons!

Senator Obama's legislative record in Illinois could spell disaster for the Dems in Nov. Reports by ABC and the Chicago Sun Times are beginning to highlight "Mr. Obama's long associations with - and questionable financial, legal & real estate ties - to Tony Rezko, who goes on trial Feb.25 for corruption, extortion & fraud.Rezko was part of Mr. Obama's senatorial finance committee, and one of his earliest political patrons. Since 1995, Rezko and his circle of friends have given Obama more than $200,000 in donations, & until he started running for president, Obama appears to have had no problem accepting Mr. Rezko's financial assistance & advice. Before we vote, we owe it to ourselves to find out as much as we can about the candidates. Go on line & do a little research about Tony Rezco...you can be sure the republicans are.

The Repugs have lost thei way. Reagan is dead, Fallwell is dead, Rove is gone, hundreds of their officials are under investigation, indictment, and facing imprisonment.

I want either Senator Obama or Senator Clinton to tell us how and when they plan to ask for their Attorney General or a special prosecutor invgestigate the Repugnicant party as a a corrupt organization. If so, do they believe a RICO prosecution is justified, given the illegal war and the ever-growing number of its officials at all levels coast to coast who have been convicted of various fraud and corruption crimes and sex offenses against children.

I DONT want change.. I want a future. I want America to remain the most entitled democracy. I want America to remain a land of free speech and ideas. and I want America to remain in the hands of Americans. Nope change isnt what this country needs. There is always room for improvement but the only revoulution people could possibly achieve by electing Senator Obama is having our nation fall to a Muslim led regime.

Obama: change that special interests, muslim radicals, and PAC's believe in!!!

I just wondered if the Clintons are behind Nader's late entry?. The timing seems suspicious..

The truth is that Hillary did supported NAFTA. She said it was a bad idea after the fact. Borack Obama was telling the American people nothing but the plain truth. In regards to her health plan she was the one who said that her health plan will be a mandate..when pressed on how she will do that she said by going after wages, garnsh wages. Barack Obama is being straight with the American people. I just dont understand why Hillary continues her lies one after another. She has proven something very disturbing that we Americans have seen in the last couple of weeks. She has been over dramatic and very defensive. Im sorry that is not presidential. I hope we all democrats united and support Borack Obama. In Ohio Nafta was responsible for closing over 50,000 JOBS. HOW can we as decent Americans over look this and vote for Hillary…No way…I have lots of family in OHIO and the last thing I want is for them to loose thier jobs..Shame on you Hillary. She said the samthing about the Iraq war..she voted for it and now she said maybe it was a bas idea, yet she refuses to come clean. Hillary and bill are nothing but scandalous people.
