Not so. We reelected Sen. Sherrod Brown and elected two Dems to the state supreme court two years ago. And see post 225.
I know Sherrod Brown was reelected in 2018. However, in 2006 he was elected to the Senate by a margin of 496,000 votes. In 2012 he won by a margin of 327,022 votes. In 2018 he won by a margin of 300,949 votes. 2018 was generally a strong year for Democrats. His margin of victory has shrunk over time.
Even if you look at % it has gotten smaller with each election. Obama took Ohio in '08 and '12 but only by 262,224 votes in '08 and 166,277 in '12. DJT beat HRC by 446,837 votes in 2016. When you consider DJT took WI, MI and PA by what…71,000 votes combined and OH has continually showed up in state polls as either within the margin of error or giving Trump the win? Well, I feel comfortable in standing by my previous post that OH has drifted to the right. Maybe I overstated by say it has taken a sharp right turn but I see plenty of data to indicate it is more red than blue at this point in time.
A lot of the right wing media is reporting that Biden lied about a drunk driver killing his family. I did a little digging and it looks like it might be true. As far back as 2007, the driver’s daughter has been disputing that he was drunk and a judge who was the prosecutor on the case says there was no evidence of alcohol being involved. Not sure how true it is, but it sounds legit.
Even if true, no one would care. It’s horrific either way.
But see, even if not “drunk” the driver still killed Biden’s family.
So Pennsylvania is all over the place, but all the polls are biden ahead at least.
Florida is mostly Biden but a tie & a Trump.
Arizona really looks like it might go Biden.
Ohio is close, will probably go Trump, but might just flip to Biden. Amazingly Texas & Georgia are just as close.
North Carolina has Biden slight ahead.
Wisconsin & Michigan looks like they’ll go Biden.
There appears to be at least 4 Senate seats going Blue which would be enough to give the Dems both houses. There could be more.
