Well lookey here...

An email from the Blackwell campaign touting the results of the Wall Street Journal Zogby Intertactive Poll.  It shows Blackwell trailing Strickland by 4.6%, with a 3.2% margin of error.

It didn't take long for that to arrive in our inbox, after we'd expressed our concerns about the Blackwell campaign earlier today.  We'd like to think they were being responsive, but of course they sent this to everyone.

In any event, these results sound a lot more plausible than the Dispatch's poll results from the weekend.  Although we do have concerns about Zogby's accuracy, given their record from the 2004 Presidential election.  And, any time a campaign sends out an email touting a poll that shows them "only" 4.6% behind, there is still cause for concern.  You can bet if their internals showed better results, they'd release those too.
