Texas Tracking Polls Show Clinton Gaining

by Todd Beeton, Sat Mar 01, 2008 at 07:07:23 PM EST

This is very interesting, both the Reuters/Zogby and the WFAA/Belo tracking polls show Hillary Clinton gaining on Barack Obama in their most recent batches of polling.

Candidate Reuters/Zogby 2/27-29 (2/26-28) WFAA/Belo 2/26-28 (2/25-27) RCP 5-poll Ave.
Obama 45 (48) 45 (46) 45.8
Clinton 43 (42) 46 (45) 45

Which is really to say that it's all tied up, but Clinton will no doubt take it over "Obama's running away with this thing," which seemed to be the case just a day ago. Since yesterday, the RCP average has gone from Obama up by more than 2% to Obama up by less than 1%.

So, what's responsible for Clinton's renewed strength?

John Zogby's analysis:

Hillary Clinton may be making a connection with Democratic voters in Texas, especially among those in key demographic groups that have supported her all year. Among those age 65 and older, she has made strong gains in the last 24 hours of polling. She also retains a big lead among Hispanic voters in Texas, and has made small gains among white voters.

In other words, Hillary's base is coming home, just as they did, you'll recall, in New Hampshire.

Hillary's not going down easy.
