Obama – 48%
McCain – 42%
Just yesterday, Public Policy Polling released a poll that found Obama leading by 11%. Personally, I’m going to trust Quinnipiac’s numbers for the time being.
The good news from this poll for Obama?
- He holds a 12 point lead among women
- He splits men and white, working class voters evenly with McCain
- More McCain supporters say they’re likely to change their mind than Obama supporters
The good news for McCain? Well, he retains a small lead among men and 25% of those who backed Clinton during the primaries now back him…but that’s about it. Obama’s favorability numbers are much higher and 22% of Ohioians actually think McCain’s age could be a factor in their vote.
And on the topic of Hillary for VP? Independents aren’t too hot on it, but overall people narrowly favor the idea.
More as it develops…
