(2) Ohio - While we're on the subject of early voting, CNN and GOP officials are pointing to a substantial tightening, compared to 2008. John McCain got hammered by 20 points in early voting last cycle, erasing any gains he made on election day itself (when Republican voters tend to turn out most heavily). This ground war is hugely important -- Ohio will almost certainly come down to turnout.

Ironically, Ohio is difficult for Romney because of solid fiscal conservative governor, John Kasich. Obama is stealing the credit for Governor Kasich's revival of both the budget and the improvement in unemployment.

Maybe the most effective ad that could be run right now in Ohio is one that includes in it credit due to Kasich. This state's economy absolutely did NOT improve until Kasich took over the reins, balanced the budget, and began personally wooing jobs back to this state.

Obama and his minions, of course, have been busy since about August stealing credit for that. The GOP should have fought back, but they were probably busy spending their money on their candidates.

The author's right. Ohio will come down to ground game. He should have added, "prevention of fraud." That is another big issue, and especially with the early voting abomination that has been foisted on a sleeping population.
