New Poll Confirms Tight Texas Race, Clinton Still Ahead In Ohio
Hillary Clinton has a 47 percent to 44 percent within-the-margin-of-error lead over Barack Obama in Texas, and is ahead of him in Ohio by 48 percent to 40 percent, with a 3 point margin of error. The Texas margin of error is 4 points. Both surveys were conducted Feb. 20.
Clinton leads Obama by 10 points among women in Texas. As in other states, she leads among white and Hispanic voters but trails Obama among black voters.
In Ohio, Clinton enjoys a 20 point lead among women, but she now trails Obama by 10 among men after leading in that group a week ago. Half of the Ohio voters said the economy was the top issue with Iraq coming in at 18 percent.
