4. dd,
I think that Ohio might be to closest state in 2004.

Do you have any thoughts on the 2000 election? Didn't Gore stop running ads and still barely lose?

7. Yup. He pulled ads
and everything else and then lost by something like 3.5 percent. Do you fellow Ohioans think that Taft is so universally disliked that there will be some kind of reverse coat-tail effect? That is, this time around, having an incompetent, unpopular, Republican-dominated- everything in power in the state could help the Dems in the national election? I do.

And the lifting of the steel tariffs is gonna hurt Bush too.

30. Wasn't Gore under the impression that he was losing
by 20 points?

It's a pity, really. Ohio would have given him the Electoral College by a comfortable majority.

10. Ohio too
I'm also an Ohioan and I agree with your statement that Ohio could be our most important state this year. We've lost over 230,000 jobs since Bush took office and even more people are now underemployed without benefits. The state is a mess....

Gore starting pulling out of Ohio about a month before the election and lost by 3.5 points. It's a winnable state as long as volunteers stay motivated and we have enough money.

The Swanee River
(Old Folks at Home)
Written by Stephen C. Foster

Way down upon de Swanee Ribber,
Far, far away,
Dere's wha my heart is turning ebber,
Dere's wha de old folks stay.
All up and down de whole creation
Sadly I roam,
Still longing for de old plantation,
And for de old folks at home.

All de world am sad and dreary,
Eb-rywhere I roam;
Oh, darkeys, how my heart grows weary,
Far from de old folks at home!

All round de little farm I wandered
When I was young,
Den many happy days I squandered,
Many de songs I sung.
When I was playing wid my brudder
Happy was I;
Oh, take me to my kind old mudder!
Dere let me live and die.

One little hut among de bushes,
One dat I love
Still sadly to my memory rushes,
No matter where I rove.
When will I see de bees a-humming
All round de comb?
When will I hear de banjo strumming,
Down in my good old home?

hasn't swung much in the past several elections and the dems have control of governor's seat... -- I just heard the unemployment rate here is 7.2% and RISING. Jobs are apparently being lost...

I think the party should worry as much or more about once solid dem. states in the great lakes region -- Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin in particular...and Ohio as well...

This is really a region hurt pretty badly by Bush's economic policies.

I would say this will be an extremely difficult election and we should be ready for the dirtiest slime Rove can come with, armed with the media...

We sort of have a piece of each region in our state. It's even reflected culturally. That's probably why we have been choosing the president for decades. Although, last time we weren't accurate (MO went to Bush).
