Obama winning Hillsborough?

14

October

Doesn't sound likely to us, but that's what a Politico/InsiderAdvantage poll shows - Barack Obama beating John McCain 47-41. They polled belleweather counties, though Hillsborough in fact isn't much of a belleweather; it's a decidedly GOP-leaning county in a belleweather region.

Except in 1996, when Ross Perot took more than 8% of the Hillsborough vote, Democrats haven't won a presidential election in Hillsborough since Jimmy Carter in 1976.
