Where The Bain Attacks Are Working

Ohio?

Obama is still beneath 50 percent in Ohio, so he hasn't converted skepticism about Romney into support for a second term. But Romney is mired in the mid to lower-forties in a state that gave McCain 47 percent of the vote, which suggests a meaningful number of Republican-leaning voters, let alone traditional swing voters, are reluctant to embrace the GOP frontrunner. Republican-leaning voters will eventually come around to support Romney, but the fact that they haven’t, despite deep dissatisfaction with the president, could indicate that attacks on Bain and outsourcing are particularly resonant in Ohio.

And without Ohio, Romney has a very steep hill to climb.
