As we all know, the real critical state for Romney is Ohio. He really needs that state to win the election. But here’s the problem for him: The latest polling shows the president up 5 points (50-45) over Romney, but the real issue is that Romney’s lead among white voters is just 5 points in Ohio, (also 50-45). That explains why Romney is having a harder time there because in Virginia and Florida, Romney leads among white voters by 22 points. (59-37)
Romney has been hurt in Ohio and the Rust Belt because the president has done a good job of highlighting the fact that Romney was against the big auto bailout and that Obama was for it and that (in his view) he saved the American car industry.
Ohio has always been tough for Romney.
