Of all the states up for grabs on Super Tuesday, Ohio was the biggest prize. Ohio has long been considered a bellwether in presidential politics. Living in a rust belt state, Ohioans are more concerned about their economic future than ever before, but social issues like abortion and marriage are also near and dear to the Ohio conservatives who showed up at the polls yesterday. So what decided Ohio Republican votes on Super Tuesday this year? What do the Ohio results forecast for the general election?
