Romney Sinking in OHIO

• A new poll by the Columbus Dispatch has some surprising information:

From Day One, Mitt Romney’s bid for the presidency has rested on the belief that his ability to turn around faltering businesses would translate into turning around the country.....

....A new Dispatch Poll shows him trailing President Barack Obama in bellwether Ohio by 9 points, 51 percent to 42 percent....

A closer look at the statistics from the Dispatch poll shows President Obama with strong support from women.

>>> Another article in the Dispatch is about Republican candidate Josh Mandel, who is being supported by right wing money from PACs. Mandel is the anti-middle class, anti-female rights, anti-public schools, anti-low interest loans for college students, that is running against Democrat Sen. Sherrod Brown. Josh Mandel is currently Ohio Treasurer and has actually attended 7 out of 21 Board of Deposits meeting since he took office in January 2011.

* Why is Republican Rep. Steve Stivers have such a fluffy, non-issue campaign ad?  Does he want us to forget that he voted for the Paul Ryan budget on March 29, 2012? (See roll call here) Does Steve Stivers recall that the Paul Ryan budget bill would give vouchers to Medicare recipients? Does Stivers even care what a voucher program would do to our senior citizens?
