The polling in Ohio has ramifications far beyond the next seven weeks and the midterm cycle. Barack Obama won Ohio in 2008, the first Democrat to do so in decades, just two years after a scandal involving the previous Republican Governor had allowed Democrats to take control. Two years after that historic result, Democrats are stumbling badly as Ohio prepares to return to its Republican roots, according to Survey USA:
"In an election for Ohio Governor today, 09/14/10, former 12th District Republican Congressman John Kasich defeats incumbent Democrat Ted Strickland 52% to 40% to retake the Ohio statehouse, according to this SurveyUSA poll conducted exclusively for WCMH-TV Columbus.
Kasich has a narrow advantage in Columbus, Cleveland and southeastern Ohio, a material advantage in Toledo, Dayton, and Cincinnati. Those with a favorable opinion of the Tea Party movement vote 17:1 Republican. Whites back Kasich 3:2; blacks back Strickland 5:2. 1 in 10 Republicans cross over to vote Democratic; 18% of Democrats cross over to vote Republican. Independents break 5:3 Republican. Gun owners break 2:1 Republican. Strickland, elected in 2006, is seeking a 2nd term."

And isn’t Ohio the bellwether state of America?
I was always told that when you go black, you never go back. I guess this just another adage that has been proven untrue.
Where are the ACORN Party planners?
“Barack Obama won Ohio in 2008”
He stole Ohio....he has never won anything in his life.
Obama has been a disaster for racial relations.
I think it is going to sweep through both houses of the Ohio legislature.
I cant feature Evan Bayh or anyone else seriously challenging the Kenyan unless Mrs. Clinton has a stroke or something.
Thre are a lot of sheep up there.
