Someone earlier in the thread asked why Obama will not win South Carolina.

How about Obama and his unions goons at the NLRB trying to prevent the new Boeing plant there from opening and hiring people?

There's no way in hell Obama can win SC.

Your own link has Obama leading Romney. Your analysis is garbage.

Unlike what the left contends, women have to earn a paycheck, pay bills, and provide for their families. THE ECONOMY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE TO THEM AS WELL.

Don't know if you are reading it right but it only shows Romney ahead in one swing state and that is NC.

Another poll showing women voters turning away from obama. Well, the democrat War on Women might have something to do with it.

Can you get your head around a party's convention celebrating abortion like the democrats are doing?

Go now you guys are all gung-ho about a Romney lead with registered voters? I thought you were against registered voter polls?

As I said before: stop wetting yourselves over one poll result.

I honestly don't think that race has that much to do with the vote in Ohio. I have mentioned here on CD before that I am from Ohio, (NW portion of the state). I lived in very integrated communities but where I lived was pretty heavily democratic in the city and more republican in the burbs like most metro areas. Most white people I grew up with in the 80s and 90s liked Reagan and Clinton. Most black peopel vote for the dems no matter who is running. The black vote has never been a big deal in Ohio. So the idea that the black population is low for Obama is not something that comes into play in my home state very often. If that were the case Reagan and Bush Sr. would never have won Ohio either. Like most people from my home area, I am not racially focused. I knew a lot of white people and most of them were swing voters and when it came to manufacturing jobs, they chose what side they felt was on their side. There were a lot of unions too, but union jobs aren't as prevalent as before. There have been gains though in auto part manufacturing in Ohio that would not have taken place without that auto bailout. Two of my brothers work in auto parts manufacturing plants and the majority of the people at those plants are white.

I'm of the opposite opinion of you.......2008 was a wave election that cannot be relied on for political analysis in 2012. Most politicial scientists have all but abandoned trying to co-opt 2008 voting habits for this election cycle. BO will lose Ohio in my opinion.
The auto manufacturing section is coming back there. There are more high tech engineering jobs now but there are also regular manufacturing jobs coming back. My hometown was mentioned at the DNC, they are slated to get 1100 new jobs at Chrysler alone. My youngest brother is a supervisor at an auto parts manufacturer and he is getting tuition assistance in order to gain a degree that will be of benefit to the company and they also have hired a whole lot and are looking to hire more. Auto jobs aren't just at Chrysler, Ford, and GM in the area, they influence a lot of local manufacturers in regards to parts and touch a lot of small businesses that cater to those plants and the workers and their families and the fac that this section of jobs is growing there now, is something that many look forward to.

I'm not sure if BO will lose Ohio. I think it is too close to tell, but I do think it will be a tough battle on the part of both candidates and even though I did like being counted as an Ohio voter, I'm glad I won't have to deal with seeing the endless political ads that are already flooding each commercial break there.

I love watching mental gymnastics, you are quite good at it. Clinton will be campaigning in those swing states for the Obama campaign, they will hear his message whether they watched it or not.
