He began the year with a mere four-point advantage.

By late August, though, Democratic Congressman Ted Strickland had carved out a twenty-five point lead over Republican Secretary of State Ken Blackwell. Strickland's current lead of 54% to 35% is a bit slimmer, but still very solid.

Despite the races ups and downs, the year's overall trend has clearly favored Strickland, who has perched at 50% support or higher since March. Meanwhile, Blackwell has yet to reach 40%. This is the seventh consecutive Rasmussen Reports poll showing Strickland with a double-digit lead.
