Right now the information I have is very raw, but the newest numbers from Zogby are out tonight. Here they are.

Texas:
Obama 47%
Clinton 43%

Ohio:
Obama 46%
Clinton 47%

It appears little changed last night and any movement could be static. I will have more as analysis is available.

Update [2008-3-2 1:18:9 by RandySF]:

I have more details now.

In the Democratic race in Texas, Clinton and Obama saw stability set in among the key demographic groups. Obama leads slightly among men, and the two are essentially tied among women. Clinton continues to enjoy a sizable lead among Hispanic voters, and also leads by 7% among white voters there.

Obama holds a two-to-one lead among voters under age 30, while Clinton leads 56% to 31% among voters age 65 and older. Obama continues to lead in the Dallas and Houston areas, while Clinton leads in more rural areas, including southern Texas.

In Ohio, the Democratic candidates have solidified their support among those groups that have come to be familiar supporters of each. Obama leads Clinton among men by a 52% to 41% margin, while Clinton leads Obama among women by an identical 52% to 41% edge.

Obama leads among Ohio voters under age 50, while Clinton leads among voters over age 50. Clinton leads in the rural areas of Ohio and in Cincinnati, while Obama leads in the Democratic bastion of Cleveland and the state capital of Columbus.

Update [2008-3-2 3:4:59 by RandySF]:

Jerid of Buckeye State Blog reports a rumor that Obama is now leading in Ohio.

A while back I reported that I'd gotten my eyes on some Obama Ohio internal polls which showed him within 7 points of Senator Clinton (this was way back when she was leading by 20 in all other polls, so at the time it was a big deal). Sure enough, within a few days public polling reflected the internal sentiment I'd published. Today I wasn't lucky enough to see new internals, but I did speak with some of my sources that dropped an interesting tidbit on me.

Apparently in discussions a week ago folks with the Obama campaign indicated Obama wouldn't be in Ohio this current weekend unless something BIG was happening. Specifically, they indicated he'd continue to focus on Texas unless internal polling showed him leading above the margin of error in Ohio.

And sure enough, yesterday the Obama campaign announced the Senator was returning to Ohio today and Sunday (in Westerville).

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.
