The Partisan Prism: Ohio Voters' Defeat of SB5

Following SB5 vote, GOP and Dems begin decoding Ohio voters ahead of 2012 (By David S. Lewis, The American Independent) But the Governor was elected in 2010, when Democrats were purged nationwide, the result of a massive effort by the Republican Party to place blame on the Obama administration and cast every Democrat as guilty by association.  Even so, Kasich was only elected by a 2-percent margin, or roughly 77,000 votes, over incumbent Ted Strickland, who was elected by nearly 50 percent more votes than his Republican challenger J. Kenneth Blackwell in 2006.
