Reversal of Fortunes: Ohio Democrats Switch to Republican

Voters in major population areas of Ohio are switching from Democrat to Republican at a ratio of 7-1 or more. Two years ago the trend was reversed.

AP reported:
The Columbus Dispatch reports that Democrats switching to the Republican party outnumbered Republicans switching to the Democratic party by about 7-to-1 as of Tuesday in Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland. In 2008, the figures favored Democrats 5-to-1.

In Hamilton County, which includes Cincinnati, about 9 times as many Democrats have switched parties. In Franklin County, which includes Columbus, about six times as may Democrats have switched.
