A new Time poll shows the president carrying a 5-point edge (49% to 44%) in a state with a manufacturing base that has benefited immensely from the salvaged auto industry and as the New York Times reports, Romney may be upbeat on the trail but the electoral college math remains the same.
One thing is for sure today, it’s no accident Romney has put all his eggs in a Buckeye basket.
