Cong. OH-2nd: Schmidt (R) With Huge Lead Over McEwen (R) in Poll

Stunning poll results from Survey USA, as reported on the excellent OH-2 Blog:

55 % - Incumbent Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-Loveland)

30 % - Former Rep. Bob McEwen (R-Hillsboro)

11 % - Other [the other Republican candidates are Deborah Kraus (R-Union Township) and James E. Constable (R-Fayetteville)]

4 % - Undecided

The above poll was commissioned for WCPO. I see on Schmidt's website that her own polling shows similar results: Schmidt 54%, McEwen 34%, Undecided 12% (based on a head-to-head matchup).

Personally I am amazed that Schmidt's various troubles (repeatedly caught making mistatements on her campaign site about endorsements and details of her resume, backing out of a debate with McEwen, continuing ridicule of her assault on Rep. Jack Murtha (D-PA) on the floor of Congress) haven't put more wind into McEwen's sails.

Agreed. I've heard nothing but bad reports on how things are going for Schmidt. I'm totally amazed.

Look at the new poll for a different point of view.
