Hard to believe that Strickland is trailing by twice the margin Fisher is.

I think its probably and accurate accounting of the race. But it is amazing considering that Strickland used to be the most popular politician in the state. His downfall is clearly tied to the slow economy. With approvals in the high 30's and low 40's he is basically toast.

Strickland is a good man. It is kind of sad to see him losing. I guess the lesson that will be painful for the country to learn is that when an economy or a country is in financial crisis, having a governor of a different political party is not going to always be able to improve unemployment. Good jobs have been declining in this country for a long time, and places like Ohio and Michigan who pick a Republican governor, will likely see some jobs go overseas, and jobs in the public sector like police, firefighters and other state jobs increase either.

The Teamsters and other labor groups need to really step up their efforts in Ohio to save these jobs and social security.

Yes, if Kasich wins he will take away Social Security from the people of Ohio.

It's not hard to believe Strickland is trailing by more than Fisher. It's called accountability.

The state is hemorrhaging jobs and Strickland is ineffective because he choses to cling to a economic model that is dieing fast. Doubling down on it just makes you lose twice as much twice as fast.

With as bad as these polls are why am I not surprised that the libs are calling in the union thugs? But their influence is wanning because an unemployed union member can't pay their union dues.

MikeyA,

Exactly. There was an article in our local paper that talked about how states like Georgia and Alabama are sending teams up to Michigan and Ohio to convince companies to move to their state even doing all the cost-benefit analysis for them. Just recently, Georgia convinced three large companies with 3,500 employees to move to their state after giving tax incentives.

Eventually, the Dems and unions will wake up to their folly when the people and companies are all gone.

Wow. Next, you're going to tell me that Pearl Harbor has been bombed.

Yeah, the good wage model.

Your analysis of unions is as bad as your spelling.

Weak retorts Paleo. Weak at best in fact.

Laughable. Why doesn't every company just pay each worker twice as much as they are making. Then the US will be a utopia. Hack, why not 100 times?
