People arriving from Ohio: We're sick of campaign ads!

Posted: Updated:

With all this attention on the swing state of Ohio, you might wonder what it's like to be a voter there.

The answer is so many TV commercials, phone calls, and mail can be irritating.

Ohio has 18 electoral votes. No republican has ever won the presidency without winning Ohio. Ohio is crucial for democrats too, although John F. Kennedy lost Ohio in 1960 but won the White House.

So far, more money -- $177-million-- has been spent on advertising in Ohio than in any other state.

We found these travelers at Sky Harbor Airport arriving from Cleveland just a little cranky.

"Well you should really try opening your mailbox. Every day there is even more crap in the mailbox. It is unbelievable, it is never-ending, it is never-ending. It is really annoying," says Eric Dickens of Cleveland.

They're annoyed and it's not because they're having any trouble getting their suitcases from baggage claim. It's the election.

"We don't need tens of phone calls a day to make up our minds so it is definitely overkill at this point. We are ready for the election," says Laura Simmons of Cleveland.

Living in Ohio means you're on the receiving end of a political blitz every single day.

"Oh yeah the TV commercials are ridiculous, three or four every time there is a break, and both Romney and Obama have been there so many times," says Pat Rowe of Cleveland.

"It is busy lots of commercials, every other commercial, they are in Ohio all the time, Romney or Obama are in town having meetings or rallies so it is definitely busy," says Katelyn George of Cleveland.

Romney? Obama? Who's got their vote? Nobody would tell me.
