Go Fisher!!!!Keep Ohio Blue! The GOP may do well in the senate in other states, but voting for Bush's former budget director would be a mistake. This is one race where Dems can still enjoy running against George Bush.

I wonder if Rasmussen left out that information about Portman being Bush's budget director when they took the poll?

For those scepticle about Obama and the wrong direction he may lead this country. I mean for the Democrats, progressives and those who supported Obama, you need to share these numbers with sceptics about the state our country was in a year and a half ago.

OH is so wishy-washy. They change affiliations like the wind.

Portman seems popular there.

Being more popular than Bush was at the end of his 8-year presidency isn't exactly a high bar to hurdle and certainly won't be enough for Obama to win re-election in 2012 or even keep the House next year.

Common Sense?:

FarLeft There is a huge chance that Fisher wont even win the primary let alone the state. I agree the Bush factor will hurt Portman, but Ohio is done with Strickland. He came in saying that his admin would be less currupt then Gov. Taft(R). Three years have passed and already Mark Dann the AT Gen resigned, three of his top staffers, plus a whole lot of scandals in the election last year. I agree that most of these things if not all arnt his fault but he is who Ohioans are blaming them on now. He single handedly forced gambling down Ohios throat and now the candidate he endorsed for Senate(Fisher) cant even take a lead in the primary. BTW I love Jennifer Brunner. I disagree with her on some isses but she is a tough woman who loves America and we need more of those. Lee Fisher on the other hand is one of those hardened politicians whose in it not to create solutions but to farther his own goals. Hes just tagged along on the anti-Bust/Taft hatred and has been Strickland's slave for the last five years. If it comes down to Brunner and Portman I go for Brunner. Portman vs Fisher: Portman all the way!

Common Sense?:

Another cool facet to the primary race is that Senator Brown has been a close ally of the Brunners for a long time. I expect his endorcement to come in the next few critical months. That could really put Brunner over the top. My prediciton, whether I like it or not, is that Portman is the next Senator from Ohio and since he is young will be there for atleast three terms if not more.

This is going to be an interesting race. A former Bushie against two strong Democrat opponents. I like Fisher
