New Denl irarikans who believed a month or two ago thai Lttixkm would win Ohio now believe otherwise. Some Republicans agree with them, concedln- n recent swing lo Roosevelt. But the so-called rural „,«. usually dominates Ohio and although inrge cities formerly Republican no«- obviously are' Dem- ocratic.'the'rural areas'appear, lo .have, returned- to at least normal Republicanism.
