Obama gains in Ohio
(WOUB) - A new poll has Barack Obama edging ahead of Republican rival John McCain in Ohio.

The Quinnipiac University survey of nearly 1,400 likely Ohio voters shows 49 support Democrat Obama, 44 percent are for McCain.

In a similar poll last month, the two presidential candidates were about even.

The new poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.

McCain has gained ground among white women over the last month, though Obama still holds a 10-point lead with women. Men are split between the contenders.

A little more than 40 percent have a favorable view of Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, while 36 percent say they don't know enough about her.
