Have you ever wondered why we are your perfect example of a swing state? The reason is simple. We are the US. At least we are the US on a small scale. We have 3 major cities that go hardcore blue, a handful of less known cities that also go blue, and alot of farm land that can magically vote Republican. Out in the country the GOP is strong. Throw in an atrocious amount of gerrymandering and you get Ohio. And while Ohio may be on the northern side of the country you’ll only find democrats near the cities.
