Zack Space, a principal with Vorys Advisors, was featured in a WBUR (Boston) story about Kenyon College, the school’s history and the importance of Ohio in presidential elections.  The story also featured insights on the 2016 presidential election.

The story states:

“Zack Space was a star football player at Kenyon in the 1980s. He later served two terms as a Democratic congressman representing Ohio's 18th district. He's not quite sure what to make of the 2016 race in Ohio.

‘We are seeing some people who are traditional labor Democrats moving over to support Trump. We’re seeing people in certain parts of Ohio, eastern and southeastern Ohio--coal country--who are gravitating toward Trump in ways that might not otherwise happen to a more conventional candidate,’ Space said.

‘But at the same time, we’re seeing a strong reaction anti-Trump and, pro-Hillary action in urban and suburban areas that we might not otherwise be witnessing. So it’s certainly a difficult to predict this year,’ he added.

So how does a presidential candidate solve that riddle and win Ohio's 18 electoral votes this year?

Space said Knox county and other mainly rural parts of the state will be the real battleground. He's watching the big senate race between former Governor Ted Strickland and the incumbent Republican Rob Portman.”
