Skip to comments.Romney closes Obama’s lead to split Ohio

Boosted by a surge among male voters who think hes the best candidate to fix the economy, Republican Mitt Romney has come back to tie President Barack Obama in battleground Ohio.
They are deadlocked at 49 percent in a new Dispatch/Ohio News Organization poll. Obama was ahead by 5 points in the same poll published on Sept. 16.
How does that tie get broken in the next nine days?
In the final days before the election, both campaigns will focus on turning out their bases, appealing to independents and attracting the few undecided voters that remain, said Eric Rademacher, co-director of the University of Cincinnatis Institute for Policy Research, which conducted the poll for Ohios eight largest newspapers.
Absent any more twists and turns, a remarkable presidential campaign may end with the campaign that executes the best ground game, narrowly delivering Ohio for the next president of the United States.
The Buckeye State, the nations top presidential bellwether since 1900, is always important in a presidential election. But this year might be giving Ohio voters an attention-surplus disorder, with more than 70 visits by presidential candidates or their running mates, unprecedented ad spending, and reporters from around the world fanning across the state. Last week, a New York Times statistical analysis called Ohio more important than the other 49 states combined.

Hey now, it appears we have a new Comeback Kid!!!
Of course the sunday shows are all talking about how Obama has Ohio locked up. They are counting their chickens when all they have are eggs. I hope they have them all over their faces come November 6.

My official FR predictions:
Ohio 2012 is going to turn out as did Florida 2000 — that is, a “squeaker” that will be bitterly contested by the ‘rats in a mad scramble to steal the election. However...
Prediction #2 — if Romney wins enough states (Iowa, Wisconsin, Colorado, New Hampshire) so that the 18 electoral votes of Ohio are no longer necessary for him to win in the Electoral College, watch the ‘rats drop their struggle to steal Ohio and just walk away....
I would enjoy being proven wrong, and would relish a Romney win in OH of 3-5%.
But I sense this one is going down to the wire.
"Mullato faggot usurper"?
That will win the undecideds, eh?
I prefer "scrawny metrosexual of color" -- once you get your listener to smirk, the crucial seed of doubt has been planted.
“Stop staring at the polls; theyre BS simply because the people like us hang up, dont put signs in our yards (especially small business owners because we know it costs us business) and we are tired of being called racists, so, we clam up and become a Nov 6th Tsunami...that is the truth and is not in the polls. Romney wins +7 nationally and 325-350 EVs.”
I think the most telling poll was the long lines on Chick-Fil-A day. Most of the rest of the polls are crap. Oh, and I agree, I think it will be a blowout, both EV and popular vote wise against Obozo.
I'm hung up on the state polls because they are the best clue on the final outcome to this election. The dems have fractured their campaign more than ever before in history. They are writing off a huge part of the country, hoping to win in the Electoral College regardless of the national margin. If they can keep the key states within the margin of fraud, they can make history by "winning" despite a 3% to 5% loss in the popular vote. There are a lot of dead Dems in Ohio and Wisconsin, and we are likely to see the results of them voting despite their severe health challenges. I'm cautiously optimistic about this race, but we have to get out the vote next Tuesday, and get an army of poll watchers out there to suppress fraud, or the 2012 presidential race will be a repeat of the 2008 Al Franken travesty.
