I hate to break it to all you poll groupies and handwringers..you NEVER before November 6th see a definitve “Romney has Ohio in the bag” from the MSM or even the polls showing this. You kmow why? That would be an admonition that Obama lost. So some of you need to go take a walk in the park, spend time with your kids, go knock some doors and stop with all the agita and emoting here and annoying the rest of us. Ohio is Romney’s now go get a life.

I said basically the same thing in another post earlier today at FR :

“The media just simply will not show Romney leading Ohio until the very, very end. They have way too much hope invested into this meme that they can win if they win Ohio. Democrats have become so obsessed with this strategy/story or whatever one wants to call it of Ohio that they can’t let it go.

I have almost humorously wanted if I could figure out how to create a map that the MSM would produce in which the whole country is red except Ohio which would be blue.”

Every poll always shows Obama slightly ahead or tied no matter how much momentum Romney has or what the internals show or what early voting figures are. Romney gains 6 points in PA, 3 in Iowa, 2 in NH, 2 in CO but.... zero in Ohio. That’ll be the pattern.

If the polls show Romney ahead in Ohio then they know it’s over.

Democrats have won 4 times while losing Ohio to the Republicans—1884 and 1892 when Grover Cleveland was the candidate, 1944 when FDR was running for a fourth term, and 1960 when it was Nixon vs. Kennedy. Of course in two of those cases the outcome was a bit dubious...Cleveland won the national election in 1884 by carrying New York state by an extremely narrow margin which could have been the result of voter fraud in New York City, and Nixon’s loss in 1960 is well known.
