Ohio Thursday Roundup

Five Days to the Election

Gubernatorial Race

  • National press is going crazy with analysis of the Ohio gubernatorial race, and for good reason. Rasmussen just released a new poll showing John Kasich up by 4 against Ted Strickland. Local press, meanwhile, seems to be in denial about the race, doing things like covering insignificant third-party candidates and obsessing about geographical oddities. The Youngstown Vindicator is openly fretting for Ted Strickland, while the Toledo Blade is trying desperately to figure out Kasich’s strategy. This much coverage in the pro-Strickland section of the press can mean only one thing — he’s in trouble.
