Ohio is such an industry-focused state that this business in the last couple of days about one of Obama's staffers (managers? I dunno) talking to Canadian politicians and basically saying that Obama wouldn't back out of NAFTA (as he has said he would do during debates) was probably pretty damaging. Clinton really went after him about it (the fact that it happened in the first place, and then secondarily because Obama didn't seem to do anything about it once he found out). I think the whole thing could've gotten sorted out, and it's probably not as bad or as important as the press/Clinton has made it seem, but it happened so close to voting time that he didn't have time to rebound.
in your face, rest of the country.

Obama - the President of the United States?
This is the address of the church Obama belongs to http://www.tucc.org/about.htm
Look at point #4
If Obama used just a shade more subtlety when lying about NAFTA, it wouldn't have happened. It's his own damn fault, not Ohio's.
Another thing, as a programmer I am very concerned that Obama has excellent economic advisors, listens to them, nods, and then does the Ohio thing. I was told that I should vote for him because he listens to Lessig. How am I supposed to know now if he'll veto the next DMCA extension?
Dude it's not my peeps. I think most people in the urban areas likely went Obama... so what do you have left? Unionized labor and farmers in surrounding areas. Can't speak for the farmers but I think erik
prolly has it right about the union labor segment. The industrial workers in Ohio have been stuck in hard times, so they'd likely go with whoever makes them feel best about the job market.
I think it would be interesting to see some of the ads that were run locally to see specifically what Clinton was focusing on.
