3. Ohio hasn't recovered from the 2010 elections


It all seemed to fall apart so fast here in Ohio.

Ohio was the definition of a battle ground purple state. Then the 2010 election when the Republicans rode the Tea Party wave gave the Rís big majorities and they proceeded to gerrymander the state into seemingly permanent oblivion.

The state is also not as diverse as most states and is getting older. Combine that with Democratic.leadership here that has always seemed unorganized and running scared even well before 2010 and the die was cast. I think it might be awhile before it gets better. The young people are not going to stick around as we become more like West Virginia or Kentucky.
