Donald Trump, ahead in new Ohio poll, swings through Cleveland: Ohio Politics Roundup
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump visits a Cleveland charter school to talk education. The billionaire leads Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in Ohio by 4 points, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll. Read more in today's Ohio Politics Roundup. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump visits a Cleveland charter school to talk education. The billionaire leads Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in Ohio by 4 points, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll. Read more in today's Ohio Politics Roundup. Trump's Throwback Thursday: During a visit to a charter school on Cleveland's East Side, Trump looked to the past while continuing to make his case for an urban agenda, cleveland.com's Andrew J. Tobias reported. "If we can put a man on the moon, dig out the Panama Canal and win two World Wars, I have no doubt that we can provide school choice to every disadvantaged child in the country," Trump said during his 40-minute speech, which focused on education issues. The scene at Trump's visit: Trump fans and detractors peacefully faced off before the billionaire's appearance at the Cleveland Arts & Social Sciences Academy charter school, cleveland.com reporter Henry Gomez writes. "Fans of the Republican nominee for president outnumbered the foes. Their encounter was mostly peaceful, but hardly polite," writes Gomez, who posted a video of the encounter. "Most of those outside demonstrating against Trump were abortion-rights advocates who are upset with the New York businessman's shifty, but ultimately anti-abortion stance." Background on Trump's charter school visit: The owner of the charter school Trump visited, Ron Packard, is a "major figure in the national charter school community for years," Plain Dealer reporter Patrick O'Donnell writes. "He's also made several moves in the last two years to be a significant charter school force in Ohio." Packard said he did not offer his school to Trump because he is a supporter. "My position is irrelevant," he said. "I wouldn't say I am a supporter or I'm not. I support school choice and what's relevant is the attention for high quality charter schools." Trump's visit to CASSA was not without controversy, O'Donnell writes. Critics "blasted the choice of CASSA for Trump's speech today, pointing to the school's poor grades on Ohio's 2014-15 school report cards," O'Donnell writes. "CASSA, located at 10701 Shaker Blvd., received a D for Performance Index, a composite of scores across multiple grades and subjects that Ohio uses to summarize results." Things are looking up for Trump in Ohio:  The billionaire leads Clinton in the Buckeye State by 4 points, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll. "The Quinnipiac University survey marks the first time Trump has led an Ohio presidential poll since May," cleveland.com reporter Jeremy Pelzer writes. "The survey found that Trump leads Clinton 41 percent to 37 percent among likely Ohio voters. Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson polled 14 percent, while the Green Party's Jill Stein had 4 percent support. In a head-to-head matchup, the poll found that Trump is ahead of Clinton 46 percent to 45 percent. "The results show that Ohio's presidential election may ultimately be decided by supporters of Johnson, the former governor of New Mexico, according to Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll." Ohio generals support Clinton: Two Ohio generals stressed their support for Clinton in Cleveland on Tuesday, ahead of Trump's visit. "Four Star Retired Gen. Johnnie Wilson, who grew up in Lorain, emphasized Clinton's commitment to the military and their families -- and said he was hurt by Trump's criticism of a Khizr Khan, a Muslim American military father who lost his son in Iraq," I write in my report. "Hillary has been a staunch supporter of the military her entire adult life," Wilson said.  "She understands what a military family endures."  Higher taxes? Ten school districts across Cuyahoga County plan to ask voters in this November for more money. "Four of those issues ask voters to approve more tax dollars for expenses. Another two are bond issues that would raise money for school construction and renovation," cleveland.com reporter Robert Higgs writes. "The remaining four issues are a combination of the two - issues that would allow the district to sell bonds for construction and improvement projects and levy a tax to pay off those bonds. They also would levy an additional tax for further improvements." Protecting victims: People who survived domestic abuse can now vote in Ohio without having their address becoming public, cleveland.com reporter Emily Bamforth writes. "The Safe At Home program aims to protect Ohioans whose abusers might seek out their public information," Bamforth writes. "Its launch comes a month before the deadline for voter registration for this year's presidential election." Marijuana and Ohio: Medical marijuana became legal in Ohio on Thursday -- but patients won't be able to purchase the drug in the Buckeye State for another year or two, cleveland.com reporter Jackie Borchardt writes. "Starting today, patients who would qualify for the program have an 'affirmative defense' against prosecution for possessing marijuana and paraphernalia that would be legal under the law, if a doctor signs off," Borchardt writes. "The affirmative defense only protects patients using one of the forms described in the law: Marijuana-infused edibles, tinctures, oils, patches and plant material. The law prohibits smoking marijuana and allows vaping, but the final list of approved forms and methods will be decided by the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy." The law doesn't make it clear how patients are supposed to procure the drug. It's illegal to grow in Ohio, and it's against federal law to bring marijuana from a legal state into Ohio. Meanwhile: A state lawmaker is asking Ohio municipalities to not ban or restrict medical marijuana. "In an open letter, Sen. Kenny Yuko acknowledged the concerns communities have about Ohio's new medical marijuana law but reminded them it will be months or even years before businesses will be growing or selling marijuana," Borchardt writes. "The Richmond Heights Democrat issued the letter on Wednesday, the day before Ohio's medical marijuana took effect." "I understand the urge to act, but keep an open mind," Yuko wrote. "Please consider all the good that this medicine can do for the citizens of your communities." Other parts of the country watching Ohio: Medical marijuana observers in Colorado, a state that helped pioneer the drug, see potential in Ohio's future marketplace. "Medicine Man was among the first medical marijuana companies in Colorado, and it plans to help Ohio businesses get off the ground. Carrie Roberts, a licensing consultant with the company's consulting arm, Medicine Man Technologies, said the law's medical conditions and allowed forms should encourage a healthy market," Borchardt writes. "The rules we've seen so far are very robust and it looks like Ohio could be a very good marketplace both for patients and business operators," Roberts told Borchardt.  Ohio Senate race: Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Ted Strickland's campaign is criticizing a new Rob Portman TV ad, which touts the senator's work on behalf of an Ohio company previously accused of delivering faulty helmets to the U.S. Army, cleveland.com reporter Jeremy Pelzer reports. The ad, seen on the air in Cleveland, highlights the Republican senator's efforts to ensure Hebron-based ArmorSource was able to successfully bid to make the Army's lightweight advanced combat helmet, securing more than 200 jobs. But earlier this year, ArmorSource paid $3 million to settle allegations that a different kind of helmet, sold to the U.S. military between 2006 and 2009, failed ballistic safety tests. Strickland campaign spokesman David Bergstein said in a statement that Portman should apologize to Ohio's military families and take down the ad. "It's hard to know what's worse: that Senator Portman would champion a company that was endangering the lives of our military service members by producing faulty helmets, or that Portman is using this same company to try and win his political campaign," Bergstein said. Portman campaign spokeswoman Michawn Rich said in a statement that the Republican incumbent is "proud" to have helped ArmorSource secure the contract. An ArmorSource spokesman didn't return a phone call Wednesday seeking comment. Beautiful politicos: Bay Village native and Rep.

Trump and Clinton's presidential appearance: Darcy cartoon
How does fawning over Putin make Trump look presidential or a strong Commander-in-Chief ? Trump looks more like a useful idiot to Putin. CLEVELAND, Ohio --  Donald Trump has said he doesn't think Hillary Clinton has "a presidential look."   The question is does Trump act like a president, let alone look the part? Tuesday, in an ABC News interview, Trump said of Clinton:"Well, I just don't think she has a presidential look, and you need a presidential look."   Monday, while in Cleveland speaking before a group of men, Trump said with sarcasm, "and she looks presidential, fellows." Granted, Hillary Clinton doesn't look like past presidents.  They were all men, some with full beards.  Trump's comment was predictably sexist.   Spoken like a guy who criticized Carly Fiorina's looks.  Spoken like a guy who runs beauty pageants and a modeling agency that has been accused of taking advantage of young women and immigration loop holes.   Spoken like a guy whose media advisor is Roger Ailes, who was just forced out as head of Fox News as a result of multiple sexual harassment allegations. Spoken like a guy who tweeted cynically that military rapes should have come as no surprise after women were allowed to enlist. During NBC's Commander-in-Chief forum, Clinton looked as presidential as any man who has run.  But she also looked rusty, defensive and like she still hadn't grasped that the official language of the U.S. is not the legalese and wonkese she has proven fluent in. NBC's horrible format and moderator Matt Lauer's performance, further hindered Clinton.    Clinton and Trump were given 30 minutes each to answer a flurry of questions on weighty topics.    Lauer's performance has been universally panned for unfairness, sloppiness and sexism, according to The New York Times. Lauer interrupted Clinton repeatedly.  At one point, when a veteran in the audience asked Clinton for her plan to defeat ISIS, Lauer interjected, telling Clinton to reply "as briefly as you can." While Lauer requested that both candidates refrain from attacking each other, he didn't stop Trump from taking repeated swipes at Clinton and Obama.   Most egregiously, Lauer let Trump's false claim that he was "totally against the war in Iraq" go unchallenged. Lauer taking a softer tone with Trump should have been expected.   Lauer has interviewed Trump many times before on the "Today" show when the subject was just stuff like Trump's NBC show "The Apprentice" not ISIS.    NBC would have been better off even having Al Roker moderate. Trump-Putin bromance Trump may think he has a "presidential look" but he certainly didn't act like a U.S. president during the NBC forum. Is it presidential to fawn over Vladimir Putin as Trump continued to do during the Lauer interview?   While I agree that Obama has been played by Putin more than once, and has come off looking weak, that will never alter my opinion that Putin is really, really bad and dangerous guy. In the U.S., Putin has an 8% approval rating.  Trump is among those 8% having said that Putin is a better leader than Obama.    Putin's political opponents in Russia have  turned up dead, poisoned or imprisoned.   What does Trump think would happen to him if he was living in Russia and opposing Putin? How does kissing up to Putin make Trump look presidential or like a strong Commander-in-Chief ?  Trump looks more like a useful idiot to Putin, who is playing him just as bad as he played Obama. Intel briefing claim How presidential did Trump look talking about a classified intelligence briefing?   A qualified Commander-in-Chief wouldn't even discuss a classified intelligence briefing in public, let alone make the absurd assertions Trump did to Lauer. Trump claimed that he learned in his briefing that the Obama administration wasn't following the advice of the intel analysts.  Trump said he deduced this from reading the body language of the analysts briefing him.   Intel analysts are professionals trained to be non-partisan and just present the information in such situations.    U.S. Generals reduced to rubble. Did Trump look presidential and act like a Commander-in-Chief when he asserted he knows more than U.S Generals, who he said have been reduced to rubble? Apparently, Trump's qualified to speak about U.S Generals because once owned the New Jersey Generals of the defunct USFL, which Trump has been blamed for destroying.  In the same vain, Trump was qualified to speak about U.S. education at Cleveland's Arts and Social Science Academy because he founded the vaunted Trump University.
