This morning several respected political commentators made some interesting analyses of what’s going on in Ohio…
“…for Democrats, with the Senate race in Ohio also clearly trending Republican, it is time to press the panic button.”
“Democrats have all but conceded the Senate race (notice the lack of money pouring into the state on behalf of Fisher). There are all sorts of rumors that key labor groups might not add EXTRA staff to the state and instead focus on, say, Wisconsin. Ohio has been a bright spot for Democrats in 2006 and 2008 (when the national winds were blowing their way), but now it is showing it’s still one of the country’s top five swing states as it’s swinging back to the Republicans as the national winds do the same.”
Peter Brown, Quinnipiac Polling:
“Whatever Strickland’s strategy, it’s not working.”
Poor Lee and Ted.
