2% Undecided

The pollsters interviewed 671 likely voters between September 11 and 17. The margin of error is 3.8%.

ADDENDUM: The Quinnipiac University poll on the Senate contest is also out today, and it shows a much tighter race:

45% Brown (D)

Among independents, DeWine leads 43%-40% with 17% undecided. The poll was taken September 11-17 of 876 likely voters and has a margin of error of 3.3 points.

What's interesting about this poll is that it is consistently, year after year, the most GOP leaning poll in the state.

Soooo, if they show Ted and Sherrod ahead.....

I think that Ted and Sherrod are excellent cadidates. They both seem very motivated to do something for the state and not just sit on their butts wasting time.

For anyone interested, the two links at the bottom of this comment are two direct links that will take you straight to Sherrod Brown's [1st link] and Ted Strickland's [2nd link] campaign sites on 21stdems.org.

I'm partial to the site because it gives an accurate description of the candidates and what they stand for. According to them, the candidates that they support are "extraordinary and visionary leaders". I think that they are right and that Ohio should vote these two men into office.
