Romney surge in Ohio tests both campaigns’ strategies
The Republican intensifies his efforts in this crucial battleground state, where President Obama has held the lead for months.
CINCINNATI — With a sudden infusion of cash and a major investment of time, Mitt Romney has redoubled his efforts to win Ohio, trying to overcome President Obama’s months-long lead in the crucial campaign battleground.
Ohio has been on the winning side of every presidential election since 1964, largely for the same reason that consumer-products companies like to use the state as a test market — it closely resembles the nation in miniature. But the resemblance is not perfect; the state has leaned just slightly more Republican than the country as a whole, meaning that a GOP nominee who cannot carry Ohio is unlikely to win nationwide. None ever has.
As recently as two weeks ago, with polls consistently showing a strong Obama lead here, demoralized Republicans openly talked of long-shot strategies to amass a majority of electoral votes without Ohio’s 18.
Now, with Romney riding a wave of enthusiasm since the first presidential debate and the national polls in a dead heat, that talk is gone. Instead, an intensifying fight is directly testing the two campaigns’ core strategies.
The Obama strategy called for a summerlong advertising barrage to set the terms of the debate early and a massive campaign organization to hold the line against any late-developing Romney surge.
Democratic strategists believed that in a state with a long history of manufacturing, Obama’s bailout of the automobile industry in 2009 and Romney’s opposition to it would give the president a strong opening argument with the white, blue-collar workers who make up Ohio’s swing vote. They hoped to build on the success of a union-backed campaign last year that overturned a new state law restricting collective bargaining by public employees, including police and firefighters.
Interviews with voters show that the campaign’s aggressive efforts to portray Romney as a wealthy businessman out of touch with the lives of ordinary voters has succeeded in sowing doubts even in the minds of some Republican-leaning Ohioans.
But Romney’s strategists argued all along that here, as elsewhere, voter unhappiness with the direction of the country would keep Obama vulnerable. All they needed, Romney advisors argued, was an event that would cause people to give Romney a second look.
For voters like Molly Johnson, the Oct. 3 debate provided that moment.
