59/29. 2/1 in Fitzgerald's NE, 1/6 of Dems voting Pub. Isn't even winning a majority of anti-SB2 voters.

We may be witnessing the reversal of 2006 in Ohio.

It's funny how OH/PA are going to be diametrically opposed this year in voting.

Sadly, FitzGerald may end up dragging the other statewide Dems down with him.

Jesus. I did hear that Fitzgerald's endorsements were getting pulled. Looks like he may beat Corbett for biggest loser after all.

Good to see the failed and humbled union buster taking the criminal to the woodshed.

Will this rout be compartmentalized or do you think Ohio will be a light red state going into 2016?

No more than Davis winning would make KS a D state, or Rauner/Foley winning would make IL/CT R states.

Are there any situations where midterm elections may set the course for the presidential?

I can see the prestige of the Democratic Party being damaged in a swing state in this situation. The voters may have been able to say "Fitzgerald is an idiot with a detachable penis" or it could give Republicans momentum. I give it a 50/50 chance that this affects 2016.

This race probably just does damage to the already weak Ohio Democratic Party, not the National Parties chances in Ohio.

I can imagine where state parties eventually drag down national ones campaigning in those states.

The publisher of the Columbus Distort has donated heavily to the Kasich campaign.

And did they even read the details of why he was in the car with the woman? There was absolutely nothing at all to the story that was scandalous.

I was in a woman's car several years ago because she drove me home from an event, and that was all there was. There wasn't anything else going on whatsoever.

People drive around in the same car all the time, and there's nothing scandalous about it.

Here's the thing about the Dispatch. While their recent Senate and Presidential polls from 2010 and 2012 were both impressively accurate, their Governor polls are off-track. They had Kasich winning by 12 in 2010; he won by 2.

It's also worth mentioning that the Columbus Dispatch has a record in Ohio for being horribly biased for Kasich. They endorsed Kasich in 2010 and ever since then, their reporters have gone before the press asking and then reciting Kasich talking points. They never bother to give the other side a fair chance. They chose to cover a graduation speech by Kasich over reporting on FitzGerald's challenge for Kasich to veto the anti-audit JobsOhio bill and even in non-editorials, you can notice they really have something out against FitzGerald who they consistently continue to condemn over the "affair" and license issues.

So throw this poll exactly where all Dispatch newspapers should go; the trash. Fitzy will lose, but not by 30 points. My God.

While the woman in the car story is a bunch of bogus (heck I just got home and a girl dropped me off in her car, no funny business), his driving without a license in on him and I hope Kasich pounds Fitgerald's sorry ass to kingdom come.

Compare the 2010 Portman/Fisher senate race to the 2012 OH presidential race results and I think you'll find your answer. Likewise the OH GOP being near utterly routed (outside the Auditor's race) in 2006 didn't prevent McCain from being at least competitive in the state two years later.
