I posted last week that Obama does stand a good chance of winning Ohio, but he won't win southern Ohio. The reasoning is simple - Southern Ohio is very rural. You are talking an area filled with real life Dale Dribbles that are quick to believe every email they read or rumor they hear at the Friday night fish fry.
Last night 60 Minutes aired a segment highlighting just that. They interviewed a person from Chillicothe who thinks Obama is a Muslim that doesn't know the National Anthem.
The fact that saying someone is a Muslim is consider an insult is actually an insult on America. But to the smear machine, they don't care. They will smear America along with candidates.
