NYTimes Declares Ohio No Longer 'Bellwether' as Trump Pulls Ahead

The New York Times, the so-called “paper of record,” hasdeclared that the all-important swing state of Ohio is no longer an important battleground in the presidential election — now that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is winning it.

Trump pulled ahead of Clinton in the Buckeye State in the RealClearPolitics poll average on Sep. 13, and has never looked back. The latest average, as of Sep. 24 — prior to the first presidential debate on Sep. 26 — has Trump ahead of Clinton by 2%.

Earlier in September, the Times was declaring Ohio “an essential swing state,” where Governor John Kasich threatened to destroy Trump’s presidential hopes by withholding his endorsement and denying Trump his turnout operation. The Times added: “No candidate since 1960 has made it to the White House without winning Ohio. And while Mrs. Clinton could afford to lose there given her advantage in other battlegrounds like Virginia and Colorado, Ohio is a must-win for Mr. Trump.”

These stories are so hard to believe, although I met a woman in the halloween mask ails at Party City who was just shocked that everyone on the shore was voting for Trump and asked me why. I should have gone th e lying Hillary route, as she has no ability to tell any truth, but instead went to Donald's success in business route and the fact that everything he touched has turned to gold, and that's what I want for my Country.

Her assessment of Trump was a rich bastard money falling out of his pockets chomping down all adversaries to make more.

I did not know at the time that the Clinton Foundation has 100 billion compared to a mere billionaire in Trump.

Poor kid needs to read the news...
