Ohio Is In Play. Don't Let Anyone Tell You Otherwise


Recommended Posts

One of the things that most exasperates me about my beloved fellow Democrats is how quickly so many of them are demoralized, and how often they succumb to right-wing propaganda lies, accepting their perverted version of reality as a fact. One of the things the Republicans would like us to do is give up on Ohio. Well folks, lemme tell ya somethin’ just between us:

OHIO IS IN PLAY. THE DEMOCRATS CAN CARRY OHIO IF THEY WORK FOR IT.

A Democratic presidential victory in Ohio is not some sort of distant event. It was achieved in 2012. A statewide Democratic victory is not some rare occurrence. It was achieved in 2018. Let me call your attention to this OUTSTANDING Twitter thread:

*Clears throat*
OHIO IS A SWING STATE! REPUBLICANS DON'T WANT YOU TO THINK IT IS!

Chris is a Republican strategist who is paid to tell you that Ohio is out of play. If Republicans lose Ohio, they lose the presidency.

Now let's get into the numbers... https://twitter.com/chrisjdmartin/status/1225957711822696448 

 

2/ Senator Sherrod Brown won by a larger margin in 2018 (53.4%) than 2010 (50.7%).

Ohio picked up 6 state house seats. First time in a decade.

And we won 2 Supreme Court races.

We also won more in Republican strongholds...

The suburbs and metro areas are swinging blue at an ALARMING rate. Which means Democrats in Ohio are doing better in:
1) Larger counties
2) Areas of growing population
3) Previously Republican strongholds

And Republicans are freaking out...

4/ Republicans are dropping CASH into Ohio right now b/c they know that if they don't win Ohio, their campaign is over.

That money is going to 1) digital ad spending and 2) voter suppression (check out the purges in Ohio: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/14/us/politics/ohio-voter-purge.html )...

This is Obama in 2012. The strategy was simple, win larger counties and preform well in smaller counties. We're engaging voters at all levels throughout the state to ensure they have a voice in this election...

So damn straight Ohio is in play. Activists, community leaders, and Democratic politicians are a different type. They won't stop fighting for their state. And we're going to be the one to end the Trump presidency.

OHIO AGAINST THE WORLD!

 
 
 
 

And please, PLEASE take a look at my own set of suggestions:

We can DO this. Let’s get to work.

amazing what idealists call a victory when this country's political system was supposed to represent people, not define who they are cradle to grave, but sustain a lifetyle without typecast classifications protected by law.

 

all America became since the civl war is mob rule stereotypes in charge.  Back to Old World behavior where mankind foolishly believed to be a chosen species, not everyone behaves like a chosen people  intellect after birth directing reproductions from now on as life only exists while reproductions are currently alive as an ever changing population so far.

 

What does humanity's institutions teach replacement reproductions that just maintain the current population until no more reproductions left now?  How to sustain the corrupted without ever knowing how corruption exists besides instincts seeking balance reality never offers outside our way or no way from each angle of deflecting life is eternally separated now.

The 2018 mid terms showed republicans taking every state wide race except the US Senate race, which the ORP ruined all by themselves.
Ohio is pretty reliably red

Speaking of gerrymandering 

Ohio had 16 Congressional districts, and four of the belong to democrats
Here is the county map of election results from 2016, divided into simple 4 X 4 blocks.
How many democrat districts do you think there should be?

They draw the districts every ten years, 

 

In 2018 the federal court ruled the state was not gerrymandered

 

In 2018 the ONLY statewide race the dems could win was the US Senate race, which, as I said, the ORP screwed up.

 

Now say something else stupid

Ohio is “reliably red” because the state GOP has gerrymandered the state out of any semblance of equity. 
 

in 2018 the votes for congress went 52-48% Republican, yet the actual congressmen elected went 12-4. That is the definition of gerrymandering, and also of deliberate disenfranchisement.

So the reliably red state voted for Obama in 2008 because why again?

Negative

 

The only democrats who won in 2018 were incumbents
The only race that didn't involve an incumbent was my district, where republican won handily

 

How many democrat districts do you think we should have?

Because we ran a terrible candidate, of course.
Nobody can pull defeat from the jaws of victory like the republican party
