We have seen this trend over and over in the campaign. Hillary Clinton usually starts out with double digit leads in most of the primaries and caucuses and then succumbs to Barack Obama\’s tremendous ground campaign and strong fundraising vein on the Internet. In the recent Washington Post/ABC polls ,Texas is practically tied, Clinton 48% Obama 47% and in Ohio it\’s only a single digit lead that was a double digit lead just last week Clinton 50% Obama 43%. Washington Post article on polls:

An article out by The New York Times suggests Clinton supporters are questioning Clinton campaign spending and possible misuse of campaign resources :
