Quinnipiac: Hillary leads McCain in Ohio

A Qunnipiac University "swing state" poll released Tuesday shows Hillary Clinton with an eight percentage point lead over John McCain in Ohio, while a match-up of McCain and Barack Obama is a statistical dead heat.

The poll, conducted March 24 through 31 among 1,238 Ohio voters, showed Clinton with 48 percent support compared to 39 percent for McCain, who has locked up the Republican presidential nomination.


A head-to-head match-up of Obama and McCain showed Obama with 43 percent support, one percentage more than McCain. The margin of error in the Quinnipiac poll is plus or minus 2.8 percent.


The same poll showed tht Ohio is one of the few places where her "favorable" ratings are higher than her "unfavorable" ratiing, but only slightly: 47 percent view her favorably, 45 percent unfavorably.


Obama's favorable rating is 45 percent while 37 percent said they have an unfavorable opinion of him. A high number - 16 percent - said they don't know enough about him to form an opinion.


McCain had a favorable rating of 42 percent, with 33 percent saying they have an unfavorable opinion. But a whopping 21 percent of those polled said they don't know enough about the Arizona senator to form an opinion.

Until the general election these polls don't realy mean anything. Once the Democrats have a candidate I think you will see stronger support for either Obama or Clinton, right now McSame is getting a free ride.

No surprises here. This is Ohio, after all. There is no way a person of color can get a fair shake here.

Well that's interesting, but the world doesn't revolve around Ohio. One thing that should be clear to anyone here - the best candidate for nomination is the one who is most likely to beat McCain across ALL states. This candidate has already been clearly identified.

Mark Twain was right, Ohio is 10 yrs behind everyone else in the nation. Every other state, including PA, has paid attention to recent developments, like Hillary's Bosnia fib, and appraised Hillary lower. But not Ohio, the news always makes its way here last. We are always behind the times.

Polls are always close and all over the place this far out. Carter was ahead of Reagan, Mondale was ahead of Regan, Dukakis was ahead of Bush, and Dole was ahead of Clinton. How did that turn out for them?

What is unmistakable is that the current Repugnicant administration has screwed up everything from their illegal war, to the economy, and there is no way in heck that the American public is going to give another term managing anything to the Gang of Pedophiles this year. I expect the Dems will pick up 50 House seats and 10 Senate seats this year, too.

I supported Obama in the primary but think about it... This is the most important poll in America.

No matter what the national numbers indicate, Hillary is the front runner. If I were her, this would be in the inbox of every super delegate in America.

Nobody wins the White House without Ohio.

Just wait till the Islamic Jihadist mobilize thier base. Obama will win hands down when that happens, because anyone voting for another candidate will have their hands cut off.

Long live the caliphate! Death to America!

She may be ahead in polls about hypothetical situations but she is WAY behind where it counts:

Delegates and Popular Vote.

Only way she wins Dem nod is to force litigation somewhere and in doing so, rip apart the Dem Party and give the Repubs an even greater chance of keeping the Whitehouse.

Postings like 854pm 2April2008 are fear mongering at best.

How about John McCain? He was under more influence for a longer period of time from Communist than Obama was influenced by any Muslim? God knows how those Commies programmed McCain's brain while he was captive!

In your rationale, McCain will bring us to a Communist State!

See how ludicrous that thought line is?

Please just quit spewing forth your ignorant rhetoric. It wastes time and confuses those who are really trying to learn about the candidates and the true issues!

You need more than 1,238 voters in a poll to get a fair percentage.
Remember Rush Limbaugh pushed Ohio voters to vote for Hillary in the primary and McCain in the general election. People like Rush and Sean Hanity (that hates Obama) are messing up all the polls taken. In the end none of this will matter. Once Ohio and the USA stop listening to these people and figure out for themself who will be the best president Clinton and McCain will be senators if they are lucky.
