Posted March 2, 2008 at 12:31pm

Ohio and Texas start voting in just two days and the races in both places are still too close to predict. But there’s also a lot of interesting results on issues and demographics, which we’ll get to.

A McClatchy/MSNBC poll conducted by Mason-Dixon shows Barack Obama ahead of Hillary Clinton in Texas by a statistically insignificant 46 percent to 45 percent given the 4 point margin of error. Eight percent were undecided. The poll was conducted Feb. 27-29.
– Zogby has Obama up 47 percent to 43 percent in Texas, a slightly wider lead the previous day’s 45 percent to 43 percent lead, but this is just a whisker beyond the 3.7 percent margin of error. The poll was taken Feb. 28- Mar. 1.
– In Ohio, Zogby has Clinton ahead 47 percent to 46 percent, with the same margin of error. They were tied at 45 percent each the day before.
A Mason-Dixon poll for the Cleveland Plain Dealer released yesterday had Clinton ahead of Obama 47 percent to 43 percent with a 4 point margin of error. Nine percent were undecided. The poll was conducted Feb. 27-29
