Ohioan to Obama: [My business has been going] terrible since you got here

October 6, 2012

You’d have to reckon that our president’s handlers thought that he would be safe visiting Cleveland, Ohio, a place that helped him win Ohio four years ago. Cuyahoga County yields the majority of Democratic votes from our state. But there’s trouble for Team Obama there today, in a dearth of Democrat registrations.

Here was how Mr. Obama was greeted at a local market:

An Ohio market vendor told President Barack Obama on Friday that his business has been going “terrible” since the president’s arrival, according to media reports.

Obama was greeting different vendors at Cleveland’s West Side Market when he came upon the proprietor of Rolston Poultry.

According to the White House pool report, Obama asked the man how business was going.

“Terrible since you got here,” he replied.

Read the rest.

That small business owner summed up the sentiments of many Ohioans, reflected in the new Rasmussen poll, also cited in the PJ Media piece on Obama’s Buckeye state woes.

So, there’s a problem with registering Dems in Cuyahoga County? That’s according to analysis by Clinton Cooper of Election Insights, who has been involved in local and regional government and politics for the last 10 years, including at The Ohio State University and in a policy advisory role for several government agencies and consulting firms in Ohio. Mr. Cooper claims that his data shows that the changes in voter registration in Cuyahoga County have made it extremely difficult for Obama to win Ohio.

Read the whole thing, please. And take heart.

    I don’t care for Obamas’ stance on immigration (I think we have more than enough people here) but I truly fear Ryan. He just strikes me as gestapo.

      How do you mean, Wayne?

      Do you fear Ryan because he favors concentration camps, or because he opposes them?

      Just kidding, of course. It seems to me that Dem propaganda about Ryan has been subliminally effective with some folks. I know of nothing in either his life or policies that should scare voters, unless it is that he isn’t quite as conservative as we might wish.
