Yeah that was his major competition, Congressman named Jim Renacci. He was basically a rubber stamp Republican, candidates of that caliber lost huge across the Midwest. He was a lot like Lou Barletta who was the GOP nominee in PA who lost by a huge margin to the incumbent. The fact that Renacci didn't suffer the same fate speaks to Ohio's reddening hue.

Again I think Richard Cordray did a lot of damage for the Democrats, Democrats have a habit of nominating horrendous candidates for Governor. My district of Summit County which includes Akron even went red in 2014 when Kasich was up for re-election. I would agree that Ohio tilts red but it's still a swing state much like North Carolina or Arizona.

Summit County is an interesting place I agree, but many counties go red when the GOP is moderate and the Dem sucks. Like Kasich or Voinovich.

Iowa remains more a swing state than Ohio, in my opinion.

Very true. The candidate in 2014 was caught driving without a license and was just generally awful as a candidate. The fact that 2014 was a big Republican wave and that Kasich was pretty popular at the time, admittedly had I've been able to vote at the time I would have voted for Kasich, and it's fairly obvious that I'm fairly left wing.

Iowa and Ohio both are swing states that went heavily for Trump. Although I do agree that Iowa is probably more of a swing state, definitely more friendly to your generic democrat. I don't think a establishment/neoliberal will ever win Ohio again, unless the Republican candidate is even more horrendous and not a populist like Trump.

Please, Social Democrat. He's not Eugene Debs. He's far closer to the New Democratic Party in Canada, the various such parties in Scandinavia (whose names vary by Scandinavian country, and a few of them have schism parties of significance), the pre-"New Labour," Labour Party of the United Kingdom, and the older Social Democratic Parties of Germany and Austria, which all adhere (or adhered) to the Social Democratic ideal. There are NO significant, or visible on the radar, Socialists or Communists running, or in elected positions outside a few big council seats anywhere in the United States, today - despite uninformed right-wing pundit mudslinging.

I was using the word “socialist” speaking from what I think a 2016 reluctant Trump supporter would view him as. I know he isn’t Debs, but to 70% of Americans probably see no difference between Debs, Bill Heywood, Bernie Sanders, Castro, Gorbachev, Ho Chih Minh, Pol Pot Mao, Hugo Chavez, Patine, WVProgressive, or Jeremy Corbyn. 

It should be viewed in the same way Christianity has many varieties and some are more tolerant, flexible, fundamental, radical, benevolent, honest, textbook, charismatic, cultlike, eccentric, modernized, paleo, etc than others.

I'm surprised I wasn't thrown in there, probably the only issue that I'm not far left on is guns.

Ah, yes. Christianity. Of the three most thoroughly abused and malrepresented in terms of it's beliefs and doctrines for such purposes religions for political gain, in world history - alongside Islam and Buddhism (Judaism would be a close fourth, but the greater majority of times, all in all, used in such a way among non-Jews - Jews themselves only misrepresent their religion for political ends in Israeli politics, Interwar European Jewish political parties in various Eastern, Central, and Southern European countries of the Era (and Pre-WW1 in Austria-Hungary, the Ottoman Chamber of Deputies through the Millet System, and the Russian Pale, and certain lobbing groups and individual lawmakers in modern Western countries - but non-Jews uses Judaism for political, ulterior ends in various ways is FAR more common).

We knew this, virtually anyone of this age who undergoes this procedure had a heart attack.

Well, he's 3rd in every poll really. And I expect him to lose more ground now.

Neither of these statements are true. Plenty of people undergo this procedure without having a heart attack (Bill Clinton did, as @admin_270 mentioned previously). He's also leading or in second in some polls. A quick google easily proves both these statements are false.

Yes, the surgery became routine for Clinton in 2010 after he had a *heart attack* in 2004.

And ok? That's just Ohio, I'm sure you could find a poll of Vermont where he's far and away ahead. I'm talking the overall state of the race, where Sanders is dropping down into 15% nationally.

I'd encourage you to do a better job looking it up for yourself next time.

Come on now. You made an absolute statement about Sanders not "really" being in first or second anywhere and you were wrong. Admit it.

I suggest you do a better job making an absolute statement like that without looking it up next time.

I wasn't part of this conversation and just reading through it now it was pretty clear he was referring to national polls - a large majority of which have Sanders in third place, which is where all the poll aggregators I'm aware of have him as well.

Why would it be clear he was just referring to national polls? There's no national primary and the DNC uses early state polls as polling criteria too.

Which does not include Ohio.  Sanders will be long out of the race by the time of the Ohio primary.

Of which Ohio is not one. Right now this race is national and early states youd be lying to yourself to ignore that. You said Sanders was in 1st or 2nd and you were wrong. So instead of trying to cherry pick obscurities which support your candidate you ought to admit your mistaken Position on both issues and move on. Or perhaps do a modicum of research on either topic.

Now you're just being an asshole. Claiming I didn't do "a modicum of research"? You didn't do "a modicum of research". Nevada is an early state and Sanders was tied for first with Biden in CNN's last poll, and in first in CBS's poll last month. North Carolina is an early state (Super Tuesday), Sanders is second there. Admit you were wrong about Sanders not being first or second "really". Grow up. 

I was wrong about Clinton not having a heart attack and I admit that (though I still think your statement that virtually all people who get that procedure have had heart attacks is false, I haven't disproven it.) Sanders is clearly not in 3rd in all polls, though.

What does that have to do with anything? He never said strictly national polls and why would I assume he's strictly talking about national polls when there is no national primary and early state polling is included in the DNC's criteria.

And after doing a "modicum of research", you'll also find out that Bill Clinton never actually had a heart attack. He had a procedure done and "narrowly avoided a heart attack", but never actually had an infarction. So I take back being wrong about him.

@jnewt I was being needlessly mean, I'm not normally like that. I will apologize for the tone I took with you, that was out of character for me and unbecoming of my usual personage.

At least of late. You used to be quite the firebrand who barely stopped to wash the brimstone out of your mouth. :P
