WASHINGTON--If the Democrats in 2008 win Ohio or Florida and keep the rest of the states John Kerry won in 2004, they get the keys to the White House. This new poll Ohio from Quinnipiac University shows the potential of former Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.)

FOR RELEASE: May 16, 2007
OBAMA, GIULIANI NECK AND NECK IN OHIO,
QUINNIPIAC UNIVERSITY POLL FINDS;
BUT CLINTON STILL TOPS DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY PACK

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani gets 43 percent to Illinois Sen. Barack Obama’s 42 percent in the 2008 presidential race in Ohio, and leads other Democrats by wider margins, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.
Giuliani tops New York Sen. Hillary Clinton 47 – 43 percent, and leads former Vice President Al Gore 48 – 40 percent, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds. In other general election matchups:
• Arizona Sen. John McCain gets 45 percent to Clinton’s 44 percent;
• Sen. Obama bests McCain 44 – 41 percent;
• McCain edges Gore 45 – 42 percent.
While Giuliani leads the Republican pack with 23 percent, followed by McCain at 17 percent, former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson has moved up to 15 percent, a 7-point jump since April 26. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has 11 percent and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has 6 percent.
Clinton leads among Democrats with 38 percent, followed by Obama at 19 percent, 2004 vice presidential candidate John Edwards at 11 percent and Gore at 10 percent.
“Ohio is the nation’s premier sw ing state and Sen. Obama does best here of the Democrats, yet he needs to do something about Sen. Clinton’s lead in the primary in order to have a chance to strut his stuff next November,” said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
“Former Senator and Law & Order actor Fred Thompson is making the Republican race interesting as he appears to be eating into Sen. McCain’s strength.”

Quinnipiac University Poll/May 16, 2007—page 2
“The 23 percent of the vote Giuliani is getting in a GOP primary remains the same as the April 26 Quinnipiac University poll, but it is sharply lower than March 7 when he was getting 35 percent of the Ohio vote,” Brown added.
“Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who has been the first to buy national television ads, finally breaks into double digits among Ohio Republicans.”
How Ohio voters feel about the various candidates could be a harbinger of good things for Obama and Thompson. The Illinois Senator gets a 42 – 22 percent favorability rating, with 34 percent who do not know enough about him to form an opinion. Thompson gets a 25 – 8 percent favorability, including 46 – 4 percent among Republicans, but 65 percent of all voters still don’t know enough about him to form an opinion. Favorability ratings for other candidates are:
• 54 – 26 percent favorable for Giuliani;
• A split 46 – 45 percent favorable for Clinton;
• 45 – 28 percent favorable for McCain;
• 46 – 43 percent favorable for Gore;
• 44 – 29 percent favorable for Edwards;
• 67 percent don’t know enough about Romney to form an opinion.
Bush Approval
Ohio voters disapprove 61 – 35 percent of the job President George W. Bush is doing.
From May 8 – 13, Quinnipiac University surveyed 939 Ohio voters, with a margin of error of +/- 3.2 percentage points. The survey includes 334 Republicans with a margin of error of +/- 5.4 percentage points, and 353 Democrats with a margin of error of +/- 5.2 percentage points.
The Quinnipiac University Poll, directed by Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D., conducts public opinion surveys in Florida, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Ohio and the nation as a public service and for research.

These polls are lame! They all assume 'if the election were held today...'. I'd love to know the stats of those who did not win the election that were on top of the polls over a year previous to the actual election.
Stats like that would show the uselessness of such polls as this one.
The only useful poll I could see this early is simply lining up the candidates and casting a vote for one, much like election day

Maybe if the msm would let us pick our own nominee instead of cheerleading for Hillary things would be more fair. They shove her down people's throats, ignore and cover up the results of the polling after the debate because Obama won and not Hillary, then went around proclaiming her the winner. She was not according to the people, the ones who vote and who's primaries it is.
Outside of FOX there is nothing negative about Hillary. It's all fawning. MSNBC is the worse and the complaining is growing. And people are noticing this. And are pissed.
They are targeting the low information voters and trying to tell them who to pick.
If the msm would stop pushing Hillary and not influence our elections and let people find out and decide themselves the polls would be very different.
