Ohio Economic Conditions Weigh On Voter Choices

Republican Ken Blackwell and Democrat Ted Strickland recently debated Ohio’s economic conditions and outlined their plan for helping Ohio companies and workers. The debate occurred against the backdrop of an unemployment rate that is a full point higher than the national average and the loss of 216,000 manufacturing jobs during the past six. Potential voters through-out Ohio will weigh the economy in their choices on election day. Public Radio stations through-out Ohio, including WOSU, took a sample of voter opinion with several weeks left before election day.
