Ohio: Clinton Lead Shrinking


My thought is that Obama is going to surprise Team Clinton in Ohio or Texas on March 4th. Hillary had a 23% lead prior to Super Tuesday. Today we learn that in Ohio, the 17-point lead Clinton held a week ago has now been cut in half. In the Cleveland area (where half of the respondents lived), Clinton and Obama split the support, while Clinton easily carried the Columbus area (one-fifth of respondents) and Obama won Cincinnati (13% of respondents).

This is good. I knew Obama was gaining ground but I didn't know it was by that much. Team Obama! :)

Hillary Clinton must be biting her nails now. This must be unnerving, to say the least. They deserve it for playing so dirty and misjudging the black and Latino votes. Obama has cut into her bases in a major way. Either tears or another campaign change is coming. She needs to get her concession speech ready if he takes one or all of the remaining big states.

Deidra & Janet - Ten wins in a row. He has 23 states; she has 11 states. He has more popular votes. He has more delegates. He has momentum. I think that Team Clinton needs to figure out if they want to be part of this movement or be bowled over by the tornado that is coming...
