After winning Ohio by a comfortable eight-point margin four years ago, Donald Trump finds himself in a statistical tie with Joe Biden for Ohio's 18 electoral votes going into the last weekend of campaigning.

WVXU Senior Political Analyst Howard Wilkinson talked with News Director Maryanne Zeleznik about the Ohio voters who may be abandoing Trump this time around - voters 65 and older, college educated voters, suburban women voters, among others.

In the end, it is a must-win state for Trump. No Republican has ever been elected president without winning Ohio.

Howard Wilkinson is in his 50th year of covering politics on the local, state and national levels.
