    Ohio is the ultimate firewall.  If Obama holds it, he is going to win.

    And it is holding.

    •  Ohio is that firewall (9+ / 0-)

      He's leading in all the Gore/Kerry states. That's 242. He's leading in NM and NV, that's 11 electoral votes. If he can win Ohio with 18 electoral votes, he has 271.

      He's also ahead in IA which has 6 electoral votes like NV.

      •  We are (0+ / 0-)

        Every day for the last two weeks, I've been on my feet for nine hours in the ballot room of Ohio's biggest Democratic county — the one that will decide whether he carries Ohio, based on the size of its turnout — pulling ballots for Cleveland's east-side precincts, East Cleveland, Cleveland Heights Wards 4 and 5, Shaker Heights, Garfield Heights, Warrensville Heights, South Euclid. I look out across the voting room and I see who is flooding in, breaking early voting records. The voters are probably 80% AA. And with today's Supreme Court decision, and our secretary of state's directive, an almost immediate concession to reality, that demo of early voters will only increase.

        Take the "Can't(or)" out of Congress. Support E. Wayne Powell in Va-07.
