Here are my thoughts on the question. I think that one thing that helped Wilson in Ohio is that James Cox ran a strong campaign against incumbent Frank Willis and beat him, earning Wilson extra votes. I also think that the lack of Socialist presence in that year's race (compared to 1912 and 1920) helped the more progressive Wilson in this state. Lastly, Ohio especially Cincinnati and Cleveland had a higher than normal German American population.
