How bad is that enthusiasm gap in Ohio?

Well, if the Ohio Young Democrats are any indication, it's worse for the left than previously imagined.

How bad has it become?

They let their website expire.

And it doesn't end there.

The Ohio Young Democrat facebook page has only five entries since May 1st.

For comparison's sake, the Ohio Young Republicans facebook page has that many entries just in the past 12 days.

And the OYR website? Blowing up with activity.

It's very simple. You don't win elections without volunteer support. You don't have volunteer support without enthusiasm. You don't have enthusiasm when the top of your ticket is Ted Strickland and Lee Fisher.

And the Ohio Young Democrats, what is supposed to be a primary driver of volunteer support, are a leading indicator of the challenges facing the left in November.
