A new poll suggests it will be much closer race in Oregon tomorrow between Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton than the one that's shaping up in Kentucky.

In the Suffolk University survey of 600 likely Democratic voters in Oregon, 45% of those interviewed said they back Obama. That's compared to 41% for Clinton.

Opinions vary on Obama in Kentucky, as 43% of the 600 respondents had a favorable view of Obama and 43% had an unfavorable view. In Oregon, 73% viewed Obama favorably.

Clinton was the overwhelming choice in Kentucky, as 51% of those interviewed said they supported the former first lady. Obama had the backing of 25%.

The margin of sampling error in both states was plus or minus four percent.
