Democrats See Double-Digit Turnaround In Ohio As Blue Wave Approaches Buckeye State

Steady as she goes.





Democrats See Double-Digit Turnaround In Ohio As Blue Wave Approaches Buckeye State

.....................................................

According to a Suffolk University/Cincinnati Enquirer poll, Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown leads his Republican opponent Jim Renacci by a stunning 18 percentage points. That’s a 26-point flip from Trump‘s margin in 2016.

At the beginning of the election cycle, some GOPers were hoping they could pick off Brown’s Senate seat. Now it looks to be safely in the Democratic column.

The same poll released Wednesday shows Democratic gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray – head of the consumer protection bureau under President Obama – leading his Republican opponent Mike DeWine by six points. That’s a 14-point turnaround from Trump‘s margin.

The fact that the top issue for Ohio voters is health care could be the driving force behind the Democratic leads, as Republicans and Donald Trump have spent the past two years working tirelessly to take healthcare from millions and drive up costs and uncertainty in the system.


GOP enthusiasm for Kavanaugh is starting to look overstated


The conventional wisdom throughout the Brett Kavanaugh disaster was that it would help Republican enthusiasm in the final month of the campaign. But the survey released Wednesday shows that just the opposite may be true.

As The Hill pointed out, “The poll’s analysts said the results indicated a lack of GOP voter enthusiasm in the state.”............................

5. Brown was a main Republican target back in 2012

Republicans spent a ton of money trying to beat him. Glad to see him so far ahead now.

6. I'm Not Sure About This Poll

While it's true that Sherrod Brown is in absolutely no danger from Renacci (his lead is huge), I don't know how reliable this poll is. Most polls show Cordray with a small lead, but not 6 points. Honestly, Cordray's lead SHOULD be much bigger than that. Cordray is supremely qualified and all that worm DeWine can do is squawk, "12,000 untested rape kits, awwwk!!!" every time there's a microphone in front of him. It's become something of a running joke because he literally has NOTHING else. I was watching the gubernatorial debate last week, and DeWine actually answered a question about right-to-work with, "12,000 untested rape kits." I'm not kidding. A person at the town hall asked him if a right-to-work bill came across his desk as Governor, would he veto it, and his answer was LITERALLY, "Yes, but let me get back to these 12,000 untested rape kits."

9. This could be big for 2020

Dem governors in Ohio and Florida help mitigate GOP shenanigans in those important swing states.
