A new Public Policy Polling survey in Wisconsin shows Sen. Barack Obama leading Sen. Hillary Clinton, 50% to 39%. His support cuts across all racial and gender lines.Key findings: "Obama actually barely leads Clinton among self identified Democrats, 46% to 44%. But there are a lot of independent voters in Wisconsin, who can vote in the state's open primary, and Obama's lead with that group is 63% to 25%."In the GOP race, Sen. John McCain leads Mike Huckabee, 53% to 32%.Wisconsin's primaries will be held on February 19. Is the Clinton campaign relenting on Wisconsin too? It seems a mini Rudy strategy.
However, will Ohio and Texas be the "firewall" Mrs. Clinton is looking for. Right now, though it is slipping, her lead in Ohio is substantial. It is double digit right now. Then, on to Pennsylvania and North Carolina. My question is will this lead shrink and Obama will move Ohio and Texas into race or will she trounce him there, thus creating a deadlock that will not be broken until Denver? I DON'T KNOW.
