    Kasich was basically generic Republican in the eyes of the electorate and in a year like 2010, that was a very positive thing to be. That Strickland lost by 2 instead of 10 was nothing short of astounding. He was polling horribly for most of the summer and fall too that many including myself had written him off until October. This was Ohio after all. Rob Portman won by 20 points and Strickland lost by just 2. Hence why I think his was the most heartbreaking loss of 2010; we came so close and lost so much.
