How do you feel about Ohians

Knowing that we'll probably decide the election. I just saw a usatoday commercial that had people standing on a map of the US wearing red, right and blue. They pulled out people wearing red and blue away and just left the people in white standing in the swing states. I usually complain about all the phone calls and mailings I get but I guess it's nice that my state is being fought over where others are being ignored. Just curious on how people in red or blue states feel about this election and do you feel like your vote means less depending on the state you're in?

 I already know who will win California, but I'm still voting for who I think is best. 

As for Ohioans... I love Ohio... My family are all Ohioans :)

Honestly? I think we should have direct elections. Electoral colleges are antiquated. If we had direct elections, swings states would not be such a big deal and 3rd parties would have a bigger voice. Jmho.

I use to live in California and I must admit, voting didn't seem quite as special when I was out there.

I totally agree.

How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

I'm an Ohioan. 

I'm voting for Gary Johnson.

No one has asked me or anyone I know for our opinions or feedback. All this election has done thus far is clog up traffic when one of the two (or their VP) shows up. People could hardly get a damn hotdog at the Original Hot Dog Shoppe when Ryan came through there last month...lol

It does seem like people are a lot angrier when they find out that you're not only voting third party but you're also in a swing state. I should find out the link from my friend but he gave me a site that said Ohio has a 30% chance of deciding this election.

 Yeah, it's not like election results are really a big surprise out here...

You're not getting all the phone calls for polls or automated messages?
