According to the local media, the polls showed that Mr. Trump faces significant deficits with African-American voters and other nonwhite voters. But his firm supporters argue that he can make up the difference with a strong performance among white voters.
Mr. Trump is the last man standing of the Republican Party and it is known that since the party’s founding in 1854, none of its candidates has won the presidency without winning Ohio.
According to a prestigious Ohio native, Kyle Kondik, an editor who just published “The Bellwether: Why Ohio Picks President,” he said:
“Ohio is the Republicans’ gateway to the Midwest.” If Trump cannot win Ohio, he cannot win the election.”
This can only mean that without Ohio, Mr. Trump might not win Pennsylvania, Michigan, Minnesota or Iowa – states in US.
