OH e-mail:

Contrary to reports earlier this week, here in Ohio the DeWine campaign is clearly spending heavily has recently flooded the airwaves with some pretty effective adds…  and I think the anti-Republican sentiment that has been hanging over the state do to the inneffectiveness of Govenor Taft is giving way to a real look at the candidates (to some degree), and the consequenses of losing the Senate (to a much greater degree).  We don’t love DeWine or Voinovich, but they both have an (R) after their names and they therefore contribute to our majority in the Senate – which allows stronger Republicans from other states to lead.

Rich,

On the surface, these numbers are good news for Republicans.  Unfortunately, these numbers are Zobgy interactive numbers.  I believe they come from an email poll of self-selected participants.  In 2004, he used this method for the first time and it favored Kerry in every state.  I guess we can always hope that he has tried to improve the accuracy of these numbers though.  His credibility took a huge hit because of this in 2004.
