Can Obama win Ohio in the general election if he becomes the nominee?

Ohio was won by under 2% in the general election in each of the past 2 terms. My prediction is Obama taking Ohio, but that is with very little certainty. My argument for each candidate... More

what about the presidents who didn't win that state and won the election? George Washington didn't win Ohio or New Hampshire, and he got handed the job. (lookit me- I can twist facts like the news channels!)

just a question if you don't mind answering please. Why must Ohio be won in order to become president?

Yes he can. He will need to work at it, but the Economy will drive voters to the Dem. Party. OBAMA / RICHARDSON 08

It will be a fight - but I don't think it's totally impossible.

It's hard to say. Why MUST it be won for a candidate to win though? What's the point in all the other states voting if it really comes down to Ohio?

If The Clintons are true partisan politicains,...YES. Otherwise if the 'true nature' of hillary (as I presently se it persists), mostlikely not!!

That is not entirely true. A person doesn't have to win Ohio to be president. It's just that most of the time, the candidate that wins Ohio happens to win. Ohio's a big state. Lots of voters... More

Since it looks as if he is going to be the nominee, I certainly hope he can, but it will be very difficult. He must win Ohio's Electoral College votes in order to be president because it looks as if he can't win Florida. I don't understand Obama's strategy but he must have a plan... More

Not if all the "bitter, angry, gun-toting, Bible-loving" people vote.
