New poll of Ohio shows Bush lead

The Plain Dealer has a new poll President Bush leading Kerry 47% to 41% with Nader running a close third with 3%. The poll shows that 62% of Kerry’s support is of the “Anything but Bush” variety.
Some recent polls have shown President Bush trailing Kerry by 4.5-7%. It should be noted that the Zogby poll is an internet poll of people who have signed up as interested in being polled, thus possibley skewing the numbers and the ARG poll sampled only 600 people compared to the Plain Dealer’s 1,500. Looking at the polls rounded up over at RealClear Politics I note that polls of Ohio with samples in the thousands seem to show a Bush lead while those with smaller 500-650 person samples seem to show a Kerry lead. Take that for what you will.
