Obama catches HRC in latest CNN Texas primary poll

CNN Politics.com is reporting that a new poll suggests the battle for the Democratic presidential nomination between Sens. Hillary Clinton of New York and Barack Obama of Illinois is a statistical dead heat in Texas. Really?

More below the fold.

CNN Politics reports:

How do people explain this? Don't the demographics favor HRC in Texas? If so, why the change?
