    Just how bad is it for Dems?

    If Kucinich is really in trouble, that means there are 7 seats in play in Ohio alone – all currently held by D’s.

    Looks like that poll is still within the margin of error… could go either way.

    Still, that’s one poll. RCP is still calling the 10th “Likely Dem”.

    Notice that one poll is the only poll – thus far, this race hasn’t been on any pundits radar – including RCP. One thing to note on all polling is Pew Research released a study showing that landline only polling is biased towards Republicans by a margin of four to six points. This includes virtually all current polling. This shows all landline polling, including polling with quotas for age and gender, isn’t accurate. Unfortunately for Strickland, the recent Ohio Poll was not landline only.

    Gotta wonder then if the Kucinich poll was landline only.

    Will say that if the magical elf gets swept out of office… damn. That’s a serious sea-change indicator.

    I sure hope Lee Fisher is happy that he beat Brunner in the primary.

    Do you think Brunner would have been able to win against Portman?

    Can anyone recommend a good description of Kasich vs Strickland with some specifics on actual plans or ideas?

    I might actually want to place a republican vote this year, maybe, that whole get ride of income tax sounds like a terrible idea once I look beyond that number deducted from my paycheck.

    Kasich will ruin this state if he is elected. I beg everyone that is leaning towards him to do your research. I weep for the future of this country if Republicans take over.

    I’m not sure. In pre-primary polls, she was shown to be able to do so (Fisher wasn’t).

    Brunner is so shrill and polarizing, though. I think Tim Ryan should have run for the seat. He’s the only Democrat I can think of that could have beat Portman.

    Might be something in here. Haven’t seen a lot of details from either side, though.

    I think anyone running as a Democrat is polarizing at this time. I’ve been pretty happy with her as SoS (especially considering her predecessor) but I’m not familiar with Ryan; I’ll find out more. Shrill seems to be something thrown only at women so maybe you can offer another adjective?
