Rhode Island

ARG:
Clinton 52
Obama 40

Rasmussen
Clinton 53
Obama 38

I'm convinced ARG just pulls numbers out of its ass. I do that too, but I'm not a pollster. That said, Rass seems to confirm the significant Clinton lead. In fact, if I had to bet, I'd bet that Rhode Island is the state that stops Obama's winning streak.


Vermont

Rassmussen:
Obama 57
Clinton 33

No surprise there.


Texas

CNN/Opinion Research:
Obama 50 (48)
Clinton 46 (50)

Rassmussen
Clinton 46 (54)
Obama 45 (38)

ARG
Obama 50 (48)
Clinton 42 (42)

I said last week, when polls still gave Clinton the narrow advantage in Texas, that Obama would win it by 10 if the election was last week. Today, I say he'd win by 15 if the election was tomorrow. These polls are completely failing to capture the breath and depth of Obama's ground game and the excitement he is generating. But if nothing else, they're capturing the obvious movement in Obama's direction.

Oh, and ARG sucks.


Ohio

ARG
Clinton 49
Obama 39

Public Policy Polling
Clinton 50
Obama 46

Quinnipiac
Clinton 51 (55)
Obama 40 (34)

Clinton 47

Unlike Texas, where I'm fairly confident of the Obama advantage (regardless what the polls might say), I'm less sure about what's going on in Ohio. If the election were tomorrow, I'd guess a +5-7 point Clinton victory. I'm also less sure about the trendlines. Sure, Obama is gaining, but Clinton is also holding her support. And given she's around the 50 percent mark, Obama can't win unless 1) she starts weakening, or 2) Obama's turnout operation is better than Clinton's.

If the election was tomorrow, I'd expect big Obama wins in Texas and Vermont, a big Clinton win in Rhode Island, and a narrow Clinton win in Ohio. Enough to keep her in the race? Hardly, especially given what will be worsening money problems and a prohibitive deficit in delegates and the popular vote. But who knows.

And yes, ARG sucks.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
