Texas Tracking Poll Shows Obama Rising

This is the tracking poll that Clinton supporters were citing yesterday (was 46-43 for Clinton yesterday) to give themselves some "hope." Oh well, so much for that.
Just one percentage point now separates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in Texas. According to the second day of our exclusive 11 News Belo Texas poll, Clinton leads Obama, 46-percent to 45-percent. Because we have included an additional night of polling in our statistics, the margin of error has dropped to plus or minus 3.6 percent.
Data provided by our polling firm, Austin-based Public Strategies, Inc., indicates that Obama has done better among likely voters each night of our three-night poll. We will continue to interview likely voters at random each night through the election.
So what will you all say if he ticks upward tomorrow in this tracking poll? You have NO IDEA what the trends are for this poll because this is the first time we've seen it. Obama could have been down 8 last week and now 3, tomorrow tied, etc, etc. We just don't yet know? by bigdcdem on Wed Feb 27, 2008 at 09:35:28 PM EST
