Gov & Sen: CNN Poll Shows Dems With Large Leads
A CNN poll released today shows Rep. Ted Strickland (D-Lisbon) leading Secretary of State Ken Blackwell (R-Cincinnati) by 23 points, and Rep. Sherrod Brown (D-Avon) leading Sen. Mike DeWine (R-Cedarville) by 11 points, with only one week to go before voting ends:
59% Strickland (D)
36% Blackwell (R)
54% Brown (D)
43% DeWine (R)
The telephone poll of 542 likely voters was conducted October 26-29 by Opinion Research Corp. The margin of error is 4 points.
UPDATE: Also out today are new Wall Street Journal/Zogby Interactive polls, and they're very out of step with the other results we've been seeing:
50.8% Strickland (D)
43.3% Blackwell (R)
48.7% Brown (D)
47.3% DeWine (R)
These polls have a margin of error of 3.7 points. Frankly, don't put any stock in these. The average of the last five polls in each race at Pollster.com puts Strickland up by 24 points and Brown by nearly 12.
