Poll: Ohio Presidential Contest Still a Toss-Up

UNDATED (AP) - Another day, another poll showing the presidential race is a toss-up in Ohio.

A survey today from the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion shows Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama tied at 44 percent among registered Ohio voters.

Obama has a slight advantage of 47 percent to 45 percent among likely voters leaning toward or committed to a candidate.

The poll found nearly identical breakdowns for both candidates among their party faithful. Obama holds 90 percent of the Democratic vote and McCain 89 percent of the Republican vote.

The survey between September 11th and 15th was done by landline telephone. It has a margin of sampling error of up to 4.5 percent.
