Stark County, Ohio, with its diverse population and mix of farm and industry, was once seen as the bellwether of the nation. That status hasn’t held up as America’s demographics have shifted.

President Trump is closing out his campaign for reelection way behind in fundraising and trailing in the polls, both nationally and key swing states. Nearly 60 million people have already voted and time is running out before Nov. 3, Election Day.

The home stretch of a presidential campaign can be warping.

"In this final phase, the feedback loop inside a campaign can become really distorted," said Brian Jones, a Republican strategist and veteran of the Mitt Romney, John McCain and George W. Bush campaigns. "Campaigns destined for defeat find ways to believe there's still a chance and campaigns headed for victory can be overly nervous."

Refugee resettlement has fallen to historic lows in the United States. The country has gone from sheltering 95,000 people fleeing persecution or war each year, to just 15,000 under the Trump administration. Advocates and refugees are hoping voters consider the issue when going to the polls.

Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris urged Northeast Ohio’s voters to make their voices heard at the ballot box over the next 10 days, rallying support for Joe Biden in a campaign trip through Cleveland on Saturday.

Harris’ motorcade rolled from Downtown Cleveland to Lakewood, to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections and finally to Cuyahoga Community College as the presidential contest nears its final week before Election Day.

President Trump is coming to central Ohio in the home stretch of campaigning before the November 3 election.

Trump plans to speak Saturday at the Pickaway Agricultural and Event Center in Circleville. Doors open at 1 p.m. for the 4 p.m. rally.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) has scheduled a trip to Cleveland for Saturday as the presidential campaign nears its final week before Election Day.

The Democratic vice presidential candidate pulled out of an earlier Cleveland trip last week after a member of her flight crew and a member of her campaign staff tested positive for the coronavirus.

Harris stepped away from in-person events over the weekend, hitting the campaign trail again Wednesday with a trip through North Carolina.

Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s name has been mentioned as a possible choice for a cabinet pick if Democrat Joe Biden gets elected as president. While that might be attractive to some, the leader of Ohio's Democratic Party says it's not something many Ohio Democrats support.

The TV ad presence between President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden and groups that support them has been fairly even in Ohio. However the final stretch shows the candidates are changing their spending plans for the state.

Former President Barack Obama will hit the campaign trail for his former vice president, Joe Biden, in the final weeks of the presidential campaign.

The majority of Ohio's population is living in a county under a Level 3 health advisory, with 29 counties listed as "red" with very high exposure and spread of COVID-19. The spike in coronavirus cases and hospital admissions has Gov. Mike DeWine (R-Ohio) once again addressing the predicament of political rallies.

Democrats enter the presidential contest's homestretch with a big cash advantage.

President Trump's campaign announced late Thursday that it, the Republican National Committee and joint committees raised $248 million in September — a strong haul but nonetheless well behind the record-setting one-month sum collected by Joe Biden's campaign and his party.

Standing in front of the Supreme Court on the night of Sept. 20 was a striking moment for anyone who has paid attention to women in politics for the last four years.

That's not just because it was the night of a vigil for a feminist giant, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but because it provided a somber bookend to the last four years of the American women's movement.

In a unique political split screen, President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden appeared in competing town halls at the same time on Thursday night.

Among their notable answers, Trump declined to denounce the baseless QAnon conspiracy theory, while Biden said he would offer a more concrete answer on "court packing" before Election Day.

With less than three weeks to go until Election Day, Democrat Joe Biden has taken a double-digit lead over President Trump, according to the latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll.

The former vice president leads Trump 54% to 43% among likely voters in the poll. It's the highest level of support Biden has achieved since the poll began testing the head-to-head matchup in February. Biden has never been below 50% in the question in the Marist poll, and Trump has never been above 44%.
