    At least Fingerhut's winning one race 

    Before U.S. Senate candidate Eric Fingerhut walked 300 miles to take his Democratic message to Ohioans, he trailed incumbent Sen. George Voinovich by 31 percentage points, 55-24.

    Now, according to The Plain Dealer's new statewide poll, Fingerhut trails by only 26 percentage points, 58-32.

    ``One reason he walked across the state was to reach out to voters,'' Raquel Whiting, Fingerhut's campaign manager, told PD politics writer Mark Naymik. ``Every day he is out there talking to voters, and we believe that will make this a winnable race.''

    Even if Fingerhut does not hit the political marathoner's wall, the race is not winnable. It never was. Ohio Democrats are incapable of winning a statewide office.
