Half-Time Predictions on Texas and Ohio

We're not quite at half-time, but who do you think will win Ohio and Texas now?

And what about the lawsuits? Barack Obama sued to reopen some polls in Cleveland, and Hillary reportedly held a media call about suing over voter intimidation in Texas.

    It's been ignored all night in favor of saying that Clinton is whining in reference to the media call.

    Nice job, eh?

    I agree. But you just made milk come through my nose. :-)

    You forgot, they'll continue to say Hillary's complaint in Texas is whining.

    OK, based on only gut and truthiness, I'm going with Hillary by 5 in Ohio, and Barack by 3 in Texas. I'm crossing fingers for a popular vote win for Hillary, but my gut says no.

    I predict I'm going to be up really late (none / 0) (#6)
    by Teresa on Tue Mar 04, 2008 at 08:31:42 PM EST
    tonight. Later than Super Tuesday. This is exciting.

    I wish I could trust the Texas exit polls and I wish they didn't have a caucus after the primary. I think Obama will win the most delegates there but HC may win a small popular vote victory.

    According to CNN (about 30 mins ago) Barack won suit to keep Cuyahoga (Cleveland) polling places open until 9pmEST.

    weird that they're not calling OH for Clinton yet. (none / 0) (#12)
    by mike in dc on Tue Mar 04, 2008 at 08:34:58 PM EST
    10 percent of vote, she leads by 20. I'm sure that will narrow quite a bit, because of Cuyahoga and elsewhere, but it seems like a safe bet she'll win, right?

    I think Obama will take Texas by a few points, due to his decent margin in early voters.

    Delegates will either be a wash or a net gain for Obama.

    on voter intimidation?  That's very troubling to me.  This is not the way to win elections.

    Looks very strong in Ohio.   I do think that Cleveland results will come in late and close the gap it is hard to see Obama overcome the lead.  So I expect a late Missouri like push but Hillary will wind up with 5%.

    Texas seems to have flatten out a bit as far as the spread.  Over a million votes in now.  75,000 vote lead for Obama.
