Mitt Romney's Ohio Problem By Z. Byron Wolf
ABC OTUS News - Mitt Romney's Ohio Problem (ABC News) Forget post-convention bounces - the numbers that really matter are in the battleground states, where President Obama's polling advantage is more concerning to Mitt Romney's team than any national numbers. No Republican has ever won the presidency without winning Ohio, and Romney isn't in a strong position to become the first.
According to ABC News' latest race ratings, President Obama is in strong position for 237 electoral votes, when leaning and solid Democratic states and combined. Mitt Romney has only 206 votes he can expect in his column, as of now.
Add in Ohio's 18 electoral votes, though, and Obama stands at 255 - within striking distance of the magic number of 270. Romney would need to win nearly every other battleground state - a list that includes Paul Ryan's Wisconsin, once thought to be safely Democratic - to pull out the presidency without Ohio.

If America only knew....
Will America be lost because noone had the guts to expose Obama?
The best Obama exposure site on the net:
(by our own FReeper, Beckwith)
The Obama File
The United States Library of Congress has selected
TheObamaFile.com for inclusion in its historic collection
of Internet materials
Just a few of the pages:
Hey, everybody in Ohio, watch this clip, then decide on your vote:
That is what is at stake.
THERE'S your problem.
2004 was 8 years ago! I understand where you are coming from but the situation was not on their side as it is today.
Like George Bush was in 2004, Obama is the incumbant and like John Kerry, Romney is the challenger.
If we base this election on the 2004 election - Obama wins just like Bush did.
1) Bush did not cheat - Obama does.
2) In 2004 there were not nearly as many dependents on government as there is today. Welfare people also vote with their wallet and that vote goes to Obama.
With Obama as bad as he is Mitt Romney should be so far ahead that even the most leftist polls in America should be polling Romney with a double digit lead EVERYWHERE.
It’s time for Romney to seriously start thinking about making some staff changes.
Republican internals have Obama ahead by 5% points
Bush was ahead by 8% this day 8 years ago. 8%. Like Obama, he just came out of his convention. He won by only 2.5%. Convention bounces are fleeting. Get a grip.
Source? (I am expecting chirping crickets in response)
Whew boy, the media has a theme the over last 24 hours, don’t they?
I don’t watch tv but hopefully Romney is running ads in PA, OH and WV on how obama is deliberately crushing the coal industry. Good bit of our coal here in SW PA is going to India and China.
I expect Obama to win because the GOP elite saddled us with a weak and lousy candidate.
They wanted Mitt Happens so they can’t blame conservatives if the One is re-elected.
I have no dog in the hunt in this election. Between two liberals, its not much of a choice.
2008 results where Obama won Ohio with 51% percent. I refuse to believe he can still get to 51%.
Oh another one with the secret Republican/Romney internal poll numbers.
Nobody producing anything more than a claim.
