Schneider: Education level dividing Democrats

(CNN) - Education level remains one of the biggest dividing lines in the Democratic race, and is clearly playing a role in the Ohio primary tonight.

Among those who reported that they attended college, Obama bested Clinton by 7 points. But among those voters who did not go to college, Clinton holds the clear advantage over the Illinois senator, 62-37 percent.

Blue collar voters have long constituted the core of Clinton's base and - in Ohio at least - they are sticking with the New York senator.

    So, should we conclude then that education and good judgement don't always go together?

    Hillary should give up and I thought people where tired of living like this . With Hillary it will not get any better under her husbands presidentcy she helped him a great deal and look where it has lead us to this we are living now. Don't forget she want and voted for Nafta etc and yes i would like to see a lady president but not her and those bad reasons for voting for someone. THINK PEOPLE THE ONLY WAY WE WILL HAVE A BETTER LIVE IS TO VOTE FOR OBAMA AND FOR CHANGE. With Hillary and when things don't get better remember not to complain that is who u wanted.

    Hillary said "Where Ohio goes, so goes the nation."

    She's right. They went for Bush. Look where the nation went.
