Voice of the Voters: Ohio University

November 2, 2012
President Obama and his GOP challenger Mitt Romney have campaigned in the battleground state of Ohio more than any other state this election season. However, neither candidate has spent much time in the Appalachian region of Ohio which is the poorest economic area and has the highest unemployment rate in the state. Journalism students Sandhya Kambhampati, Keara Vickers and Seaira Christian-Daniels of E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University examine how Ohio’s Appalachia has become a blind spot and political casualty of presidential politics.

Journalism students Averi Harper and Alex Giles of the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill report on the issues driving North Carolinian voters to the polls this year.
