    I can only speak for the economy of the great state of Ohio. Under Governor John Kasich's leadership we have grown leaps and bounds. Former Governor Strickland took this place to hell in a handbasket. Thanks John Kasich!!!!

    I cant speak for any of the other States but here in California we have just been through a republican that left us in a really bad state of affairs. Aunold was one of the worse governors we ever had.

    Irrelevant to the topic. If the game you're playing is "it's all Bush's fault" no matter who's in office, except if anything positve happens, then "it's our guys good actions" then it's a moot point and I'm again, wasting my time here coming to another bias poll.

    Your right it is Irrelevant to the topic but NOT this topic. This topic is about republican's that run or ran states. Thats aunold. I am NOT saying anything about bush in this thread. Either way you have your bases covered when you in a nut shell say OK polls are irrelevant and oh you cant claim bush. Just curious are YOU going to expand that to the liberal press?? Sir with all due respect you are a freakin LAME. This conversation is over.

    Most are doing better than those that have embraced the Democratic policies. Those that aren't 'recovering' are having to deal with years of Democratic financial abuse.

    What did John do? From what I understand most growth in ohio is related to the auto industry which Romney said to let it fail. Also steal is making a comback another indication of the improved auto industry. I still would like to know what job growth you governor created and what he did to make that happen. Our governor just cut $1 billion in funding to schools and it's costing us over 10,000 jobs 24 in our school didtrict alone and some programs in schools are being cut. Our drivers training classes have been cut now I'll be the one teaching my son how to drive. He'll get no experience at school which was a big help.
    But here's my arguement with you. If Obama takes the blame for high unemployment then he should get the credit for states with improving unemployment numbers. It's impossible to be blamed for everything bad but get credit for nothing good. Thats like a car trying to go in both directions at once. It's impossible. Reagan got credit for creating 16 million jobs according to conservatives. It was all him no governors no democrats all him. Clinton created 23 million jobs but conservatives say it was all the republican congress. Now this. Damn you guys are good taking all the credit and none of the blame. Now Romney claims he'll produce 12 million jobs in 4 years. Any...

Heck he hasn't given us his plan for job creation or paying for the 5 trillion in new taxcuts but he said he will after he's elected. Be careful of people bearing gifts. Remember what happened to Troy. Have a great day my friend.

    There are definitely differences in education. The average IQ is relatively higher in blue states than in red. Using the McDaniels Average IQ rating system; there were six blue states and thirteen red states that averaged less than 100 points. However, the Ravens Average IQ rating system indicated that there were three blue states that averaged below 100 IQ points and ZERO red states that averaged above 100 IQ points. All stats were compiled from data collected before, during and after the 2008 national elections which were comprised of a total of 29 red states and 21 blue states. I sincerely doubt that very much has changed in that regard, but I don't have the statistics for the current election year.

    "An examination of the unemployment data in states that flipped to Republican governors in 2010 shows that from May 2011 to May 2012, Florida saw a drop in unemployment from 10.6 percent to 8.6, Iowa from 6.0 to 5.1, Michigan from 10.6 to 8.5, Ohio from 8.8 to 7.3, Oklahoma from 5.9 to 4.8, Tennessee from 9.4 to 7.9 and Wisconsin from 7.6 to 6.8. Kansas has a current level of 6.1 percent, Maine of 7.4, New Mexico of 6.7, Pennsylvania of 7.4 and Wyoming of 5.2 percent. The national average is 8.2 percent."

    "A Daily Caller report broke down Bureau of Labor Statistics employment data and found that Republican governors and GOP-controlled state legislatures presided over 16 percent more job creation than their Democratic peers from January 2010 to April 2012."

    "If Obama were successful, the whole nation would be seeing drastic improvement rather than those states in which Republican governors were recently elected. How does this help Obama? Apparently Obama's tactics are failing, and these states are succeeding despite Obama, not because of Obama."

    Really.... And just what jobs did the republican governors create and by what means did they bring the jobs. Reagan got credit for creating 16 million jobs not the governors of the states but Obama gets no credit.
    What you fail to mention is that some of those states like Michigan and Ohio had alot of job growth due to the comback of the auto industry and I'll bet if you dig deeper into each state's employment growth most growth will be due to things the president implemented when he and democrats helped stop the recession and the growth is due to an improving economy not anything those governors did. Unless you have actual details as to what each governor did to reduce their unemployment as you stated above. I'll wait. .

    Yes I know about Scott who cheated medacare out of billions of dollars and was then fined a record amount($400 million) while he was the CEO of Columbia/HCA a healthcare company. His approval ratings in Florida are 36% the lowest in the country. Christie is a rude big mouthed peon but he has done a good job in NJ. Kasich, what the hell did he do except take the credit for what Obama did for his state with much of the growth due to the auto industry being saved which your guy said let it fail. Not much for doing the hard work are you guys. You just sit back let the dems do the hard work then you thing you can come in and take all the credit but when something goes wrong it's all the dems fault. No it's you pushing your talking points. As the head of the Romney campaign just said, "we're not going to let facts get in the way of what we're saying". I think you took that comment to heart.

    That's not correct. Look at where you're spirtual is located. You guys should have it right at the top center. Government should be down the bottom. oh wait I forgot that's just what you say about government you don't actually believe in smaller government since republicans grow government faster than dems do.

    You give only numbers but not the reasons behind the numbers. Just being the governor of a state doesn't mean any of your policies are creating jobs. Most jobs in Ohio are due to the rebounding of the auto industry and the governor had nothing to do with that. And here in Pa. it's due to the gas industry moving in but when the layoff in school jobs kicks in that'll hurt his bottom line. Most of us can't wait for the next election to vote him out of office.
