Youngstown, suburbs sealed Obama’s big victory

YOUNGSTOWN

Republican Mitt Romney failed to win one voting precinct in Youngstown and Austintown, and he captured only two of Boardman’s 47 precincts on his way to a 27.7-percentage-point defeat in Mahoning County.

An analysis by The Vindicator of raw precinct-by-precinct results in the county, a traditional Democratic stronghold, shows Youngstown provided 30.5 percent of President Barack Obama’s 74,346 votes in the county.

In 2008, Obama picked up 79,173 voters in the county. Overall, 128,914 of the county’s 178,270 registered voters cast ballots that year.

With the county’s population decline, there were 170,079 registered voters this year with 119,171 people casting votes in this election.

In the city, Obama, the incumbent Democrat, beat Romney 85.5 percent to 13.8 percent. The rest went to others on the ballot.

2. My brother is a small business owner outside Youngstown

(a ice cream store) as well as doing freelance electronics repair in his home. Him and his wife work in a hospital as well. He was a supporter of Obama.

Glad to see his vote had an influence in the election.

turnout was great on election day. I am glad our area of the country, especially our great state of Ohio, played such an important part in helping to re-elect our President! Ohio is the heart of it all!!!
