Sometimes I wonder who has the time to create political models and forecasts like the one below. Needless to say I am thankful they do. PLEASE click on the link below. Every state is represented a ribbon through time. You can see how the swing states, those closest to the middle, have swung throughout the past decade. If you “highlight” Ohio, the state that has given its electoral votes to the winner every election since 1964, has swung over time. 

ENJOY!
