New Zogby Polling

The new Zogby polling is out, and in Ohio Brand D is looking pretty good. Sherrod Brown leads Mike DeWine 46.7 - 34 and Ted Strickland leads Ken Blackwell 49.1 - 44.3. While the Brown poll may be somewhat of an outlier, the gubernatorial polling definitely seems to confirm what I have expected about Blackwell.

None of the polling that I have seen has had Blackwell topping 45%. Even though it is still relatively early in the cycle, I think Blackwell either has found, or is very close to finding his ceiling. The guy has been elected statewide three times so you almost have to consider him an incumbent, so not being able to top 45% doesn't look good for his chances.
