This is better than the Super Bowl! This is going down to the wire! It kind of reminds me of my run for student body president in high school! ( I lost). I will be in front of the TV ALL NIGHT Tuesday!

Clinton, Obama in close 'Super Tuesday' races

WASHINGTON, Feb 3 (Reuters) - Democrats Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are running neck-and-neck in California, New Jersey and Missouri two days before the sprawling "Super Tuesday" presidential showdown, according to a Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby poll released on Sunday.

Obama has a slight lead in California and is virtually tied with Clinton in New Jersey and Missouri heading into the biggest day of voting ever in a U.S. presidential nominating campaign, with contests in 24 states.

Obama, an Illinois senator who would be the first black U.S. president, also has a comfortable 20-point lead in Georgia fueled by a more than 3-to-1 advantage over Clinton among black voters.

Below is a list that is hard to find – the actual states that are holding primaries. Not much polling data publicly available on Utah, Tennessee, Idaho or North Dakota.

My own analysis says that in addition to the states mentioned in the Reuters Poll above, Alabama, Connecticut and Colorado are statistical ties – less than five percentage points separate them.

Add Georgia and Illinois, two states that are currently seen as being “in the bag” for Obama (which means I’ll believe it when I see it) and you’ve got eight states in play.

As a side note, Alaska, Hawaii, Minnesota are caucus states – not very many delegates in Alaska and Hawaii, but the caucus process lends itself more to peer pressure – will be interesting to see what the outcome is in these states.
