1. This is a poll done by Public Policy Polling. They have a decidedly lefty tilt.
2. The poll is done in Ohio. Home of Dennis the Menace. Not your typical “red” state. 2008: BO 52, JM 48.
We’ll start rolling out our Ohio poll results tomorrow but there’s one finding on the poll that pretty much sums it up: by a 50-42 margin voters there say they’d rather have George W. Bush in the White House right now than Barack Obama.
Independents hold that view by a 44-37 margin and there are more Democrats who would take Bush back (11%) than there are Republicans who think Obama’s preferable (3%.)
