Following the US elections as I do I noted that Barack Obama visited Mentor, Ohio just two days before voting starts. It got me thinking – his strategists must have decided that in the frantic last 3 days of campaigning the town and its surrounding areas must be key.
Well it sure is – it’s in Lake County that according to Wikipeadia although the county may not go with the winner it is the one that most reflects the average votes of the two parties in the swingiest of swing states.
So, if Ohio is the key and no Republican has won the White House without winning Ohio – it might be wise to find out what’s happening in Lake Counties townships of Mentor-on-the-lake, Painesville and Willoughby.
Have a look at Googlemaps for Mentor, OH – looks a nice place to live too!
