Ohio to vote on union limiting law – professor explains how vote outcome could affect 2012 elections

On Tuesday, voters in Ohio will head to the polls to decide whether to keep a controversial bill that would strip public unions of much of their collective bargaining rights. The bill has energized Ohio union workers, who have actively organized to kill the bill. And because Ohio is a critical swing state, this vote could have important consequences for the 2012 elections.

Carol Costello speaks with Paul Sracic, professor and chair of political science at Youngstown State University, to get his thoughts on whether the bill will be repealed – and what this battleground means for the future of unions.
