As President Obama and Mitt Romney criss-cross Ohio today, they’ll be pushing different answers to the question of whether people are better off today than they were four years ago. And Ohioans themselves have some different answers to those questions as well.

In September of 2008, the full impact of the collapse of the housing and job market and of some of the nation’s biggest banks wasn’t quite clear.

Now Mitt Romney’s campaign is pushing the question of whether people are better off today.  And President Obama is pushing the point that four years ago, George Bush was still president and arguing that without his stimulus package and auto bailout,  the economy was headed for even worse.

WKSU interviewed northeast Ohioans yesterday  to find out whose message is more likely to resonate with what’s happening in their own lives. What we found was a mix. For many, their personal lives are improving, but there’s an undercurrent of unease.  

Hear some of the voices.

That’s Steve Rozsa, Denise Peters, Steve Beal, Jerome Scott, Greg Hodges, Marian Parmatier and Rick Rebadow. They’re among the Northeast Ohioans WKSU spoke to on the eve of the newest round of campaign visits here by President Obama and his GOP challenger, Mitt Romney.
