Ohio is often considered a “swing state.” In other words, no one knows whether voters in this Midwestern state will choose the Republican or Democratic candidate for president. Since 1944, Ohioans have voted for the winning candidate in all but one election. In 1960, they chose Richard M. Nixon, the losing Republican, over the winner, Democrat John F. Kennedy. That means the Buckeye State is likely to play a key role in Election 2020.
I recently spoke with residents in my Ohio community about the upcoming election. I asked if they would be supporting President Donald J. Trump, the Republican candidate who is running for re-election, or his Democratic challenger, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden.
