ABC News Talks to Voters in Battleground State of Ohio

ABC News(COLUMBUS, Ohio) — And we’re off.

With 56 days until the 2016 presidential election, ABC News is hitting the road and talking to voters in the battleground state of Ohio.

Over the next five days, our plan is to drive more than 800 miles and visit six Ohio counties — stopping at coffee clubs, college campuses and county fairs along the way. The goal is simple: to hear from voters.

Four years ago, Barack Obama beat Mitt Romney there by less than 2 percentage points. Last week, a Quinnipiac poll had Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in a dead heat in the must-win state: Trump 46 — Clinton 45. It’s anyone’s game.

“Step Right Up” is the name of our game. Check out our wheel:

We hope people won’t be shy, but will spin the wheel and answer the random questions: “If you could pick anyone to be the next president, who would it be?”, “What is the first thing the next president should do after taking office?”, “What’s the most outrageous thing you’ve heard this campaign?”

It has been a roller coaster of an election and we’re going to keep talking about all of it — hopefully, at some point, from an actual roller coaster.

Updates to come.
