    Interesting that Ras polled 750 voters instead of his usual 500 per state. I do wonder the partisan makeup of this sample though because anything higher than a D+1 or D+2 is not realistic.

    Bad movement for Barry. Wasn’t he at 50% in the Ras Ohio poll a week ago? This isn’t looking good for him.
