I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Ohio Dems: Closer Than Ever

The latest Rasmussen poll has Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama virtually tied in the Buckeye State:

In Ohio, Hillary Clinton has maintained a constant level of support over the past week, but Barack Obama is rapidly gaining ground in her rear view mirror.

The latest Rasmussen Reports poll, conducted Thursday night, shows Clinton earning 47% of the Ohio Democratic Presidential Primary vote. That’s little changed from the 48% level of support the former First Lady received last Monday night and in the previous poll conducted last week.

However, while Clinton’s support has remained stable, Barack Obama has been steadily inching up in the poll. Obama now earns support from 45% of Ohio’s Likely Primary Voters. That’s up from 43% last Sunday, 40% last week and 38% the week before.

The Zogby poll, meanwhile, shows Clinton with a two-point lead in a poll with a 4 point margin of error.

Hillary may end up winning in Ohio, but it’s going to be close and that means she’s not going to get a big enough jump in delegates to off-set her 100+ deficit in the delegate count.
