‘No Republican has ever won the White House without winning Ohio.’ And it looks like Ohio is slipping away from the Romney-Ryan team. Real Clear Politics posted their newest Ohio polling data today: Obama 50 Romney 45. Could it be that Ohio’s swing voters are moving away from the Republicans for some very good reasons? Like Ohio’s 7.1% unemployment rate? The booming auto industry? The Romney-Ryan non-plan?
Did you catch Mr. Romney and Mr. Ryan on the Sunday talk shows yesterday? Poof! That magic trickle-down fairy dust disappeared like magic. Maybe it doesn’t like the light-of-day. Like cockroaches.
QUESTION: “So, Mr. R_________, which tax loopholes would you end in order to get more revenue without raising tax rates?”
ANSWER: ” ”
Ohioans like straight talk like, “I’m going to save the auto industry.”
As I walked door-to-door on Saturday I sensed that The People in my neck of the woods have made up their minds. Maybe it was the comparison that they made after the two conventions. I encountered only one, just one person, who told me that she was still undecided. During my previous Saturday walks, there were 5-10 people per canvass who were ‘undecided.’ And the targets of the list were all ‘undecided’ voters. Of course, this is a small sample and hardly statistically accurate but nonetheless, it is interesting to note.
Whoever is running the Romney campaign and giving him advice on what to say ought to be fired. Did you catch Romney talking about God? Talking with NASCAR drivers? Romney talking about closing loopholes on taxes for the wealthy.
This is the 2nd week of September for crying out loud! It seems to me that Ohio voters are stumped about just what Romney will do to help them. I haven’t heard anything, have you? It’s all trickle down fairy dust and Ohioans like substance not magic.
