Gov. Taft widens lead over challenger

According to poll results, published Monday by The Columbus Dispatch, Gov. Bob Taft has widened his lead in his bid for re-election. Taft, a Republican, was favored by 51 percent of those questioned. Tim Hagan, his Democratic opponent Nov. 5, was supported by 40 percent, with 2 percent for independent John Eastman and 7 percent saying they didn't know who they'd vote for.

Commentary by Chad D. Baus:
While stretching the lead from 8 pts. to 11 is an accomplishment, this is still an unbelievably tight race. Judging by money and name recognition alone, this should be a 25pt. spread.

Voters are obviously showing signs of displeasure in Taft, but fortunately more and more seem to realize that the alternative is a far worse option.
