We'd been wondering when the next Ohio poll would come along, and Public Policy Polling has just released one finding Obama holding onto a healthy eight-point lead in Ohio:
Obama 48% (50% last month)
McCain 40% (39% last month)
The three-point shift is within the margin of error.The numbers suggest Obama's problems with blue-collar whites in this industrial state may have been overstated: He's only trailing McCain among whites by four points, 46%-42%. Nor does he appear to have a problem with female voters: Obama's leading among them by 20 points.
