Obama surges into the lead in Texas

February 26, 2008

Obama overtakes Clinton, Mccain still ahead of Huckabee by over 15%.


Using Samplemiser, I have produced the following projections for Texas:

John McCain 51.27
Mike Huckabee 35.05

Barack Obama 49.24
Hillary Clinton 44.87

On the Republican side, Mike Huckabee is clearly far behind McCain, although McCain might not get enough votes to make Texas a Winner Take All state (he needs 50%). However, the story of the day is clearly that Obama is now ahead of Hillary. The only sliver of hope for Hillary is that the early voters voted overwhelmingly for her. I am now reducing Hillary’s chances to 25% and seriously considering my position in her.
