YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — “Remember, there’s early voting in Ohio so don’t wait,” said Barack Obama, at a rally in Toledo. There was a tinge of urgency in his voice. The candidate was in the Buckeye State this week because the race here is almost a dead heat. A CNN/Time poll puts Obama up by 3; the Ohio Newspaper Poll puts McCain up by 2.
“The race is going one way — then the next day, it goes the other way. Ohio is flopping like a fish,” said Jimmy Georgiades, operations manager at WKTX-AM 830 radio, a local station in Youngstown. Callers to WKTX are upset with both candidates. “We all want change, but to what? Neither candidate will give us an honest answer.”
