  •  likely it's the demographics and electoral votes. (5+ / 0-)

    used to be that you couldn't win the presidency without winning los angeles - it was a perfect cross section of classes and outlooks.  if you could win l.a., you could win a large enough cross section of the country to win the nation.

    but ohio is one of the largest swing states, in terms of electoral votes.  the democratic candidate will always get some of the largest states in the union, in terms of e.v.s : california, illinois and new york.  so the republican candidate usually needs to get at least 2 of the 3 big swing states: ohio, pennsylvania and florida.  

    obama has a slight lead in florida, and pennsylvania is no longer competitve - it's in obama's camp.  sooooo.... this is really bad news for mittney.  

    KEEP YOUR MITT OFF MY MEDICARE! (-9.75 / -9.05)
