“A virtual tie” in Texas: CNN poll has Obama up 50 – 46 over Clinton

It’s tight, tight, tight in Texas:

In the CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey released Monday, 50 percent of likely Democratic primary voters said Obama is their choice for the party’s nominee, while 46 percent backed Clinton.

But taking into account the poll’s sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points for Democratic respondents, the race is a virtual tie.

Clinton had a statistically insignificant 50 percent to 48 percent edge over Obama in last Monday’s CNN/ORC poll in Texas.

This poll was conducted after the Texas debate last week.

Eight days to go.
