Could Ohio Turn Out Like Missouri?

Joe Klein writes about Hillary Clinton's chances in Ohio and compares the state's demographics to Missouri in his Time magazine column:

"The demographics are also not nearly so friendly as the Clinton staff thinks, especially in Ohio -- a state that seems to be the mirror image of Missouri, which Obama won. Ohio's population is 84% white (the exact same as in Missouri), 11.8% black (11.3% in Missouri) and 2.3% Hispanic (2.8% in Missouri). The percentages of college graduates and the household-income distribution are nearly identical as well."
