Barack Obama defeated* Mitt Romney by 166,214 votes in Ohio in 2012. That’s out of 5,489,028 votes cast. So Obama’s victory margin was just 3 percent, 50 to 47 over Romney.
But 20% of Ohio’s voters should not be on the rolls at all, according to a story in the Columbus Dispatch.

Recently I received an email from a very worried senior citizen. She forwarded a poster to me and asked me, “Can this really be true?” The poster was of Obama saying, “Some people say I’m Stupid. Really? Here’s how stupid I am:
“I was hired by over 69 million voters who didn’t even do a routine background check on me. I’m doing a lousy, stinking job, with a record number of people out of work. I gave guns to Mexican drug gangs, I kill innocent people all over the world with drone strikes, and I decide which laws I’m going to enforce and which ones I won’t.
I’ve doubled the deficit. I’ve ruined our health care system. And yet I still stand an excellent chance of being rehired. That’s how stupid I am. Now, How Stupid Are You?”
That’s a good question because in spite of the fact that this administration failed miserably in not securing our embassies and State personnel on 9/11 before Ambassador Stevens and others were brutally assassinated, poll numbers show Obama leading Romney in swing states.
The media and his sycophants are still covering for this foreign policy disaster. When it was pointed out that Obama hadn’t bothered to attend intelligence briefings, National Security Council spokesman, Tommy Vietor told Marc Thiessen of the Washington Post that Obama didn’t need to because he was “among the most sophisticated consumers of intelligence on the planet.” Oh really?
When the entire Middle East Arab world exploded, President Obama went to Las Vegas in vigorous campaign mode. He fundraised with Beyonce and scheduled David Letterman while refusing to meet with Israeli PM Netanyahu. He expects to be reelected and if he is the answer to my headline’s question is a resounding YES!!!

Voters registering to vote at the polls in November will be able to display a utility bill or bank statement on their smartphone or computer screen to prove their address, state election officials decided Tuesday.
Stating that they weren’t “dinosaurs,” the retired judges who sit on the state’s Government Accountability Board unanimously overruled a staff recommendation that the elections agency hold off on any final decision on the issue until after the fall elections.
Voters needing to register have to show a document proving where they live, but currently even the paper copies are just shown to poll workers who don’t keep them.

When you see a new poll, what do you look at first? With the general election campaign nominally underway, most people would say that they look at the head-to-head matchup between President Obama and Mitt Romney.
But I’m still intensely focused on the president’s job approval numbers.
The reason has to do with my view of a presidential campaign when an incumbent is on the ballot. Based on my read of the history and the political science research on the subject, I’ve put together a rough outline of how the average voter makes up his mind. It looks something like this:
