Primary Day… Clinton Takes Lead in Texas

The latest and final Zogby Poll for Texas and Ohio shows Hillary Clinton regaining the lead in Texas:

Texas – Democrats

3-1/3

2-29/3-2

2-28/3-1

2-27/29

2-26/28

Obama

48%

Zogby notes that on the strength of “strong campaigning in Ohio and Texas, Democrat Hillary Clinton of New York has retaken a narrow lead over rival Barack Obama of Illinois in Texas… The telephone surveys show Clinton had a second consecutive good day, and now leads Obama 47% to 44% in Texas.”

Zogby also says (emphasis mine):

In Texas, Hillary had a slight lead in Sunday’s polling, which was enhanced by her lead in Monday’s polling, and those are the figures combined into the two-day rolling average of our poll. How did she pull ahead? She clearly increased support among white men and Hispanic men, mostly based on her late campaign focusing on her fitness for military command.

And Taegan Goddard on Political Wire notes more polls showing an upswing of support for Clinton in Texas:

The American Research Group poll in Texas has Clinton leading Obama, 50% to 47%. In Ohio, Clinton leads 56% to 42%.

The Belo Texas Tracking Poll shows Clinton edging Obama, 46% to 45%.

An Insider Advantage poll in Texas finds Clinton leading Obama, 49% to 44%.

I’ll have more on today’s primaries later in the day. And while we’re all waiting for the results you can jump in and help Hillary — click here to start to making calls and help Hillary win today!
