Ohio decided the 2004 Presidential election by voting for Bush.
It is remarkable to read the set of poll's on Tuesday's state-wide Ohio votes. The Columbus Dispatch boldy reports:
The numbers have looked good for the Democrats through much of the campaign. Now, days from the election, they look staggering. A strong turnout on Tuesday might be the GOP's only hope.
In the Gubernatorial race, they have the Democrat Strickland ahead by a breathtaking 36 percentage points!
In the Senate race, they have the Democrat ahead by 24.
It is a extraordinary turnaround from the 2004 situation when Ohians backed Bush despite (some say because of!) the pleas of Lady Longford, John Le Carre and other Guardian letter-writers.
This chimes in with another report that the Reagan coalition of voters, a 30 year movement, has been destroyed by Bush in two years.
Nice one Dubya!
