As we sit back and enjoy the results of tonight’s Ohio GOP primary, we wanted to take a look at how the long primary process has affected Mitt Romney’s polling in Ohio and how it compares to President Obama. And we’re looking at two key demographic groups, women and independents, two voting blocks that will be essential for the ultimate winner. We looked at Quinnipiac polls dating back to January, 2011. All polls are available here.
First, how are the two candidates doing in a head to head match-up? Among women, Obama has been winning against Romney since […]Full Story... →
State Senator Jim Hughes (R) has frequently been endorsed by Ohio’s labor unions, including both of the major teachers’ unions, the Ohio Federation of Teachers and the Ohio Education Association. In Columbus, Hughes’ endorsement is often touted as evidence of a reminder that public education does not have to be a partisan issue as he regularly strayed from the Republican views to support public school teachers.

Plunderbund didn’t “officially” take sides in the Senate primary battle between Jennifer Brunner and Lee Fisher, but if you read the blog back then it would have been amazingly clear who most of us were supporting. Despite Brunner’s fundraising disadvantage, former PB blogger Modern Esquire took on Lee Fisher, the entire Ohio Democratic Party and anyone who was foolish enough to say anything negative about Jennifer Brunner.
Brunner didn’t win, but she did impress a lot of us with her willingness to fearlessly get out in front of important progressive issues. After the race for Senate, Brunner started a political […]Full Story... →
We’ve recently dedicated a number of posts to the battle for control of Ohio’s Republican party. Today’s election of members of Ohio’s Republican Central Committee will decide if Team DeWine maintains control. Or if Team Kasich will be successful in their latest power grab.
I can’t exactly explain WHY we find he battle between Governor John Kasich and Ohio Republican Party Chairman Kevin DeWine so interesting.
