No Republican has ever won the presidency without winning Ohio, since 1960. Lately, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's numbers have been slipping further and further. One poll recently reported that President Obama has a nine point lead in Ohio.
According to NPR, one anti-Romney TV ad has been very effective in Ohio. The ad goes after Romney over his Bain Capital investment firm, which closed down a paper plant in Marion, Indiana.
In the ad, Mike Earnest recalls how he and several other workers built a stage so that Bain Capital executives could tell all the workers that they had been fired.
The ad has been viewed more than 2 million times on YouTube and many of the views have been by voters in Ohio, reports BusinessInsider.com.
