Poll Shows McCain-Palin With Slight Lead in Ohio

BOSTON (AP) - Yet another poll shows a very tight presidential race in Ohio.

Suffolk University in Boston surveyed 600 likely Ohio voters in the past few days. Forty-six percent supported the Republican ticket of John McCain and Sarah Palin (PAY'-lihn), while 42 percent backed Barack Obama and running mate Joe Biden.

The poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Asked which of the four candidates is "most like you," 31 percent said Palin, followed by Obama at 22 percent.

When asked which candidate they trusted more, respondents chose McCain over Obama, 49 percent to 41 percent. Yet, more respondents says they believe Obama better understands and cares about their problems.
