Steve Baggett: "The economy and I'm pretty conservative - sort of believe in the constitution, too much government and that type of thing, so I wish they had focused a little bit more on what they plan to do to change it instead of how bad the other guy is. I don't like the negative stuff."
Angela Kearns: "I think our country needs something different in the sense of - it is a business and we needed to look at it a little differently and I didn't feel like the other candidates offer as much as him."
Tom Nolan: "People our age - around 28 years old - there's not a whole lot of candidates I think out there that speak to us. We're not the richest or the poorest, we're just kind of here in the middle class and we feel like Mitt Romney is kind of the future for us." 
Bill Maikranz: "Their opinions are their opinions on other stuff, but it's all about the economy in my mind."
Alex Bradley: "A couple of them, I haven't really heard that much about them. Mitt was one of the ones that got the most publicity out there, so it seemed to be the best choice for it right now." 

That's Steve Baggett of Hudson , Angela Kearns of North Canton, Tom Nolan of Medina, Bill Maikranz of Hudson and Alex Bradley of Rootstown.

Romney outspent his nearest rival in Ohio – Rick Santorum --  by about 12-1.
