    TJ, this is a great thread.  I read somewhere that one key reason for Ohio being more GOP leaning than Michigan historically is that in Ohio the working class is spread out in many smaller cities.  In Michigan the Detroit area concentrated huge amounts of working class voters back in the auto heyday, and this led to a more cohesive pro-democrat vote, according to this theory. In Ohio, the dispersal of workers all over the state made them more likely to associate with more people from different classes etc, and less likely to vote Democratic.
