Poll: Clinton strong in OH against McCain

Quinnipiac University's new poll:

Winning among white working class voters, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton holds strong leads over Arizona Sen. John McCain - and runs much better than Illinois Sen. Barack Obama - in three critical swing states, Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, according to three simultaneous Quinnipiac University Swing State polls released today.

If Sen. Obama is the Democratic nominee, he's in a tight race with McCain in Florida and Ohio, but takes Pennsylvania.

This is Sen. Clinton's strongest overall performance since the independent Quinnipiac University began special surveys two years ago in the three largest and most important swing states in the Electoral College.

Ohio: Clinton beats McCain 48 - 38 percent; McCain gets 43 percent to Obama's 42 percent.

Illegal war, massive deficits, massive job losses to China, terrible economy, massive loss of standing in the world, no way in heck does a Repug get elected in the Fall. There are probably a few southern/western states brain-dead enough to elect a Repug, but either Dem should get 400 or more electoral votes, and we should see 60 Dems in the Senate and nearly a 2:1 Dem margin in the House. Dems ought to be able to take 5 House seats in Ohio alone from the Repugs.

It's not gonna be close. We're talking FDR/LBJ numbers, folks.

If Clinton wins she then will be able to stop all those rich Ohio farmers from making big bucks when they sell their soybeans to China.

"The point is that under the most basic and probably the fairest criteria — simply counting every state and U.S. possession where there was a legitimate primary or a caucus where popular votes were tallied — Obama will finish the primary season hundreds of thousands of votes ahead of Clinton.”

John McCain lacks the judgment to be President. That much is obvious to anyone who's paying attention.

Yeah, Nancy Pelosi has done so much. What a disgrace she's been. She promised to bring our troops home immediately. Two years later, not one positive thing accomplished.
Vote Republican for America's safety.

Having an "in your face women" as President, might be really cool.

The obstructionist rethugs in congress, particularly in the Senate, have managed to keep any progress from happening in congress. The Dems do not have supermajority of 60 which would allow them to shut the retug deadenders down.

You back from LA already? Still got your head up there,huh?

Must have been pleasure because there's no business to attend to.

Two years later, not one positive thing accomplished.

tell the truth anonymoose. nothing has been done because the republicans used the narrow margin that exists to block every positive thing that this country needed. when anything got thru, the criminals in the administration vetoed it.

2009 can't come soon enough.

Hey everyone, I will be here ALL DAY, 24/7 to impersonate and obsess over the President of the Blue Chip Young Republicans. This is all I've got in my life.

Anon 5:53 Grandma Nancy knew that going in, but she shot off her big mouth about all the changes she would make. I'll bring those troops home. More Dem BS.

Log Cabin Capell has a man-crush on me. He can't stop obsessing over me!

Why don't you sign on with your last name instead of someone else's? You are a typical libtard coward.
