Bryan:

Hillary is stronger then Obama in Ohio against Rudy and the GOP as is Edwards, I have a hunch that Ark, W.Va and Florida could all flip to the Dems this time around.

Thompson is in good shape, trailing Giuliani in this key state by just 6 pts. only 1 day after officially declaring his candidacy.
Something interesting from this poll is that 25% of Republicans are undecided or "don't know" who they are voting for, compared to 13% of Democrats.

It looks like the Republicons are in for a good beating, AGAIN!
I hope that the RNC won't believe in polls again for '08.

Since May QUIN, Clinton up 6, Obama down 14; McCain down 7 with everyone else just about the same. Clinton appears to be a lock. Giuliani's lead had decreased and he may end up fighting Thompson for 1st. If Ohio stays with March 4 primary, given Romney is strong in Iowa, New Hampshire and Michigan, it is arguable that he could appear in Ohio with considerably stronger support, perhaps a three way contest with Giuliani and Thompson.
