^ you can't look at it like that when you have a popular incumbent. Plus, I expect the actual vote to be a bit closer than the current polling.

True.  I'm just surprised at the 53 figure.  Brown "only" won in 2012 51-45 and he won over DeWine in 2006 56-44.  At a time when the state went Republican the most it has since 1988 it's still a bit surprising if Brown wins in the 15-16 point range, which would be his career high for a statewide election, save for the 1986 Ohio Secretary of State election he won by 20%.

The fact that there are people out there that consistently vote for Portman and Brown is insane to me. What are they basing their vote on? It tells me they know zero about public policy.

Brown's latest ad (on Ohio jobs) sounds...well, very Trumpian ("I voted against trade agreements....").

Well, he's always been against trade agreements and even wrote a book decrying them, so actually I'd say it's the other way around.

Met him personally a few times, he was always very nice. Another one bites the dust to the cult

^^ The Dispatch's paraphrased headline is interesting. The full commentary by Renacci is much more poignant.
