Over the course of the past few years, Ohio has gone from being an economic disaster zone to one of the most employed states in the union. The current state of the Ohio economy is a far cry from 2009 when the state was shedding tens of thousands of jobs a month. But who should be credited with this sudden turnaround?

After 236 years of democracy, the 15th Amendment, the 19th Amendment, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, you'd think Americans would have voting down to a science. But small battles are raging on in parts of the country over voters' rights and the cost of letting everybody cast a ballot.

Of all the states up for grabs on Super Tuesday, Ohio was the biggest prize. Ohio has long been considered a bellwether in presidential politics. Living in a rust belt state, Ohioans are more concerned about their economic future than ever before, but social issues like abortion and marriage are also near and dear to the Ohio conservatives who showed up at the polls yesterday. So what decided Ohio Republican votes on Super Tuesday this year? What do the Ohio results forecast for the general election?

In 2008, the Obama wave swept across the country, bringing Democrats to districts that had been Republican strongholds for decades. Democrats acquired a 75 vote majority in the House of Representatives; they currently hold the majority of Representatives' seats in 33 states, compared to Republicans' 16 states.
This year, the electoral tide is shifting and all signs point to Republicans taking back the House during today's election. The first districts likely to go Republican will be those former stronghold "swing seats," such as Ohio's 6th and 18th Districts and Colorado's 3rd, 4th, and 7th Districts.

President Obama gave a sweeping economic address to a handpicked crowd of 800 people near Cleveland, Ohio yesterday… partly to announce several new economic proposals, partly to try to set a new tone for the midterm election campaigns.
It was his second speech on the economy this week; in it, he proposed $180 billion dollars in new business tax breaks and infrastructure spending, to get businesses spending and hiring again.
But even if Congress passes the proposals, would they be enough to turn the economy around in a substantial way? And will it do anything to improve fortunes for the Democrats heading into the November 2nd elections?
