Presidential Candidates Eye Swing State of Ohio

PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (WSAZ) -- All eyes are on Ohio for the 2012 Presidential Election. This all-important swing state is grabbing national attention.

The candidates know it and voters know it, as well.

"They say it's Ohio or nothing," says Scioto County resident Gary Leach. "I think Ohio results won't been in until late into Wednesday morning."

A new CNN poll shows the presidential race is locked in a statistical dead heat in Ohio.

Monday, the poll shows President Barack Obama at 50 percent and Mitt Romney at 47 percent in the Buckeye State.

One person neither camp could count on is Cindy Blaine of Scioto County. She came to vote Monday, with no clear choice in mind.

"I'm in line and I'm stumped," Blaine said. "I really don't like either candidates' party platforms; I think that's my problem. I think the parties have gone too far in each direction, and they're not representing the average person."
