Giuliani and Clinton tied in Ohio

Giuliani and Clinton are neck and neck in Ohio.

WASHINGTON (CNN) - According to a new poll, Republican Rudy Giuliani and Democratic Sen. Hillary Clinton are neck and neck among Ohio voters in a theoretical general election match-up of the presidential front-runners.

The new poll from Quinnipiac University shows Giuliani, a former New York City mayor, with a one point edge over Clinton, D-New York. Giuliani is currently at 44 percent and Clinton is at 43 percent. Ohio played a key role in the 2004 presidential election and ended up giving President George Bush the final votes he needed for a second term in the White House.

The poll was conducted from November 6 – 11, 2007 and has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 2.8 percentage points.

    The poll can't be right. The Republican party is dying in Ohio. We can't vote them out of office fast enough.

    Steve, nice deep breath, there you go.

    Bill Clinton is NOT running.

    George Bush is NOT running.

    Do you really think that the only ammo Republicans have on the Clinton clan is one lone sexual dalliance?

    Are you serious? Just both of their actions in the last two weeks are going to be made into ads and used against her (just like your BELOVED Democrats are doing now).

    I do agree with your diatribe against Rudy, don't like him at all, but he isn't going be her opponent.

    You seem to be confused.

    No, they aren't tied. Not sure where Ms. Thai came up with this stuff? Are you a US citizen reporter Xuan Thai?

    My husband, nine year old daughter and I are watching, and enjoying, the debate this evening. At one point, my daughter asked 'How do you know who to vote for when they all say good things but you don't know if they will do what they say?' We laughed and said 'Yes, great question. That is exactly what we ask yourselves.'
