TOLEDO, OHIO: Another poll in Ohio shows Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland is cutting into the lead of his GOP challenger in one of the most closely watched governor's races in the country.
A New York Times/CBS News poll released Tuesday shows the race is about even.
This comes after a poll last weekend by Ohio's eight largest newspapers showed Republican John Kasich with a slight lead.
Just four weeks ago, polls indicated that Strickland was falling far behind Kasich mainly because Ohio voters were unhappy with the state's job situation.
Since then, Strickland has released a series of positive ads aimed at tapping into frustration over the economy. He's also been joined on the campaign trail by President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in recent weeks.
