Mitt Romney On A Swing State

Updated on November 14, 2012

Update-- It is November 15, 2012 the election is over. Obama won Ohio and still is President. So, is Ohio still one of the most important states for people running for President to win the Presidency? Both Obama and Romney were in Ohio over 33 times. Our phones rang around 10 times per day. I finally took my phone off the hook. Maybe we will find out on the next election if Ohio is still the swing state.

On Tuesday, March 6th, Mitt Romney won Ohio by 1%, which is about 9,000 votes in the entire state. In spite of all the money that was spent one Romney's run for Rebublican candidacy for President, in Ohio he had 38% of the votes, Rick Santorum 37% of the votes, while the others had a lot fewer.

Winning Ohio is important for Romney because Ohio is one of the Swing States, which means both candidates in a presidential election have a reasonable chance of winning, because support is almost equally divided. Ohio also has voters who switch from one party to another.

Ohio is also a battleground for Republicans and Democrats because it has a high population, therefore, has a lot of Electoral College Votes. Ohio is also a remarkable mix of the nation as a whole. There are people who are urban, suburban, industrial, service, agricultural, rural, Republicans, and Democrats.

So with Ohio, always being close and always swinging from side to side, it is an important state. Ohio has gone to the winner of the President of the United States of America in all but two elections since 1892.

That is why we should get out and vote. Our votes are more powerful then anything

      The MiFare classic crack has aolmst nothing to complete with this particular particular use on the cards. That was employed to extract the A and B keys, which would permit you will get on the encrypted memory. I am not even touching that element from the card just examining the one of a kind ID from it and checking it towards the master listing.

      Romney said several times in the debate. "I have a plan and I know how to do it." That did not give me a whole lot of assurance.

      Ken, I hope so too. He was wonderful in explaining what he was going to do as President. Obama as usual, was simply trying to lure the audience into feeling like he was going to 'Take care of them'

      I hope all of Ohio was watching the debate last night, and they were able to begin the process of comparing the real Romney, to the Obama Campaign's made up monster-Romney, and have begun to realize they don't match up... and that Romney IS America's best hope.

      Laura thanks again for your comment. It really did amaze me that Mitt won by 9,000 votes! 1% You know how I feel about voting. I only live 2 blocks from the voting place in this neighborhood. It really makes me feel how important our votes are. Mitt spent so much money and he only won by 1%.

      Michele as usual great hub. Swing states are always important. It was interesting to learn Ohio has been right on the "money," so to speak in all but two elections since 1892. Just keep them coming Michele I always enjoy reading your hubs and thinking about the various POV's (point of views,) at work during every election year.

      Excellent Hub Michele. Really enjoy the inside view from the people's perspective.

      I would imagine the Auto industry is also a major contingent of the Independent voter block ib Ohio. I also noticed Romney has done extremely well throughout the Primaries with those making over $100,000 per year.

      On a separate note, I didn't notice the hub on Google+.

      Thank you for your comment Larry, it is a very good one. As you know, because I keep saying it, the vote is so important. No matter who you vote for. I don't have a solution either, but for me, voting helps.

      Michele: I miss the first time you sent this, so I am glad you did it again. I agree with you about the importance of voting. When I was editor of my college newspaper, I wrote, what I then thought was a very profound statement. I said, "Most candidates are elected by the majority of a voting minority." I was saying there was not enough voter participation in this country and I stand by that.

      I do not have a solution, but I do not like the primary/caucus system we have in this country. In Louisiana we use to have a presidential preference primary, but delegates were not bound by the votes. Now we have caucuses. Since I am an independent, I cannot vote in the primaries or take part in the caucuses, so I have to wait until the two parties come up with their candidates.

      The Democrats have Obama. The Republicans may have Romney, but in a close race, a lot of deals are made at the convention, which could change things.

      However, regardless of the confusion or the overall views of the two final candidates it is important that all people make a choice. Some would say that not voting is a choice, and maybe it is, but it is not the right choice.

      Thank you for commenting on this. I could not really send it out again, because it would have been the second time. All I did was change the Title. You can't send it out twice.
