Swing State Issues


Fwiw–talked with some veteran Ohio politicos yesterday who relate that the number one concern among the state’s voters is (no surprise) gas prices. Focus group data supposedly shows  one of Obama’s top vulnerabilities is his record of voting “present” 100+ times in the Illinois state senate–blue collar voters expect senators to work,  not straddle. Sleeper issue is Obama’s Induced Birth Infant Liability Act vote. Almost nobody knows about it but when informed the reaction is nearly always the same: momentary incredulity followed by revulsion.
