The race for the U.S. Senate seat in Ohio this year was supposed to be one of the most competitive in the nation. It turned out to be a dud.
Polls earlier in the year showed Republican Sen. Rob Portman neck-and-neck with former Gov. Ted Strickland. Portman ended up winning the race 58-37 percent.
“Portman’s campaign was so effective that he barely needed to even worry about reelection after Labor Day,” Kraushaar wrote.
Portman even did better in the state than Republican Donald Trump did, pulling seven [More]

President-elect Donald Trump “doesn’t wish to pursue” further investigations into Hillary Clinton‘s email practices, a top adviser said Tuesday, a turnaround from all the campaign rallies when Trump roused supporters to chants of “lock her up.”
“I think Hillary Clinton still has to face the fact that a majority of Americans don’t find her to be honest or trustworthy, but if Donald Trump can help her heal then perhaps that’s a good thing,” Kellyanne Conway said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
That comes after months of Trump nicknaming his Democratic rival “Crooked Hillary,” questioning whether the [More]

Take Our Poll
The poll of 500 likely voters has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent. The two polls show the presidential race in Ohio is extremely close.
But the poll indicates Trump is losing ground among independent voters. In last month’s poll, Trump held a 27-point advantage among independents compared to a smaller 6-point lead in the new poll.
“If Clinton takes the lead among independents, she wins Ohio,” said David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Research Center in Boston.
The poll also showed Republican Sen. Rob Portman leading 46-to-31 percent over former Democratic governor Ted Strickland.

Republicans like Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Ohio Sen. Rob Portman have denounced Trump’s comments as disgusting.
“Donald Trump is a man I cannot and should not support,” said Kasich, a Republican. “The actions of the last day are disgusting.”
However, Kasich has never been a Trump supporter. Comments like Kasich’s feed into Trump’s side of the story saying that the establishment and the media are out to get him.
Establishment Republicans in Ohio have not jumped on the [More]

Seeking to draw a contrast with Clinton and Kaine, Pence said Trump was “a businessman, not a career politician.” He panned the Democrats for offering frustrated Americans “more of the same.” He also leapt on former President Bill Clinton’s criticism this week of “Obamacare,” saying Trump would repeal the measure but not specifying what he would replace it with.
Kaine, too, defended his running mate’s weaknesses, chiefly the public’s questions about her honesty and trustworthiness. He said that while Trump was “selfish,” Clinton had devoted her career to helping children and families.
Kaine and Pence are far less familiar to most [More]
