Poll: Clinton Leads Among Whites in Texas, Ohio

Washington (AP) Hillary Rodham Clinton is showing renewed strength in Texas and Ohio among whites and working class voters, according to early results from exit polls.

The New York Senator seems to be limiting barrack Obama to groups that have supported his candidacy from the start of this year's Democratic presidential contest. The Illinois senator is getting overwhelming support from blacks, young voters and the college educated. But the recent inroads he's made into some of Clinton’s core supporters, at least for now, seem to be limited.

In part, Clinton is benefiting from disproportionate support from voters who picked their candidates in the past week – a period that has seen her aggressively accuse her rival of inexperience.

The two candidates are evenly splitting the earlier deciders in both states. They're evenly dividing independent voters – whom Obama has dominated -- and liberals, another group that has tilted toward him.
