Ohio and Romney: Not a Good Mix

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.

What a shame unions are leading the few who belong to them to vote against the rest of us who do not belong to unions. Think about it. Union people in the Auto industry did not take concessions. How can the rest of us survive.

Well, I'm a white female born and raised in Ohio and nobody asked me. I'm voting for Mr. Romney and Mr. Ryan. So are ALL my friends...even the black ones. My dad retired from GM. All that was done was a new company called GM was created, all the assets from the real GM was transfered to it and the real GM with all the debts AND RETIREES was bankrupted. Truth be told, Mr. Obama didn't save the auto industry. He just manipulated some things to give the government more power over what was left of it and sent our jobs to China. If Mr. Obama wants us to vote "revenge" then just wait. I'm tired of not having a president.

After hundreds of millions of dollars in television commercials, months of campaigning and three widely viewed debates, the race was locked in the same dynamic that has defined it from the start: Mr Obama, burdened by four years of economic struggle and partisan animosity but still an inspiration to his party, holding the slightest of edges in Ohio and other swing states, and Mr Romney, bearer of the hopes of conservatives and voters convinced the nation is on the wrong path, fighting to overtake him. The president, fighting to avoid being turned out of office four years after a rousing and historic victory, sought to shore up his standing in Midwestern states that had backed him enthusiastically last time. He assumed a defensive posture in Iowa and here in Wisconsin, two states where his advisers had openly scoffed at his rival’s chances only a few months ago. I thank you Firozali A.Mulla DBA
