Columbus, Ohio: Shattered by her recent consecutive defeats, Sen. Hillary Clinton has finally got good news from the latest statewide poll, which has recently shown that Lady Clinton has a wide lead over her surging arch rival Sen. Barack Obama in Ohio's Democratic race.
According to a new SurveyUSA poll, Clinton has 56 percent of supporters among likely Democratic voters, while Obama is trailing behind with 39 percent of supporters. Furthermore, 3 % of voters surveyed said they supported other candidates, while 2 percent said they were undecided.
Certainly, the SurveyUSA poll must have given Lady Clinton, a good sigh of relief. She can, now, well concentrate on her campaign strategies to regain her foothold. Ohio's primaries contests are on March 4. The state has 161 Democratic delegates and 88 Republican delegates at stake.
On the Republican front, McCain is leading with 50 percent, followed by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee with 36 percent and Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) with 6 percent. Five percent of voters supported other candidates and 2 percent were undecided.
The poll results have been derived interviewing 720 likely and actual Democratic voters and 524 likely and actual Republican voters in Ohio from February 10 to February 11. Margin of sampling error for Democrats is 3.7 points, and 4.4 points for Republicans.
