Coming into the 2016 election, Ohio had picked the winner in every presidential election since 1964. With that in mind, Scott Pelley visited the Buckeye State to get a sense of the issues voters there cared most about.

What he found was a state suffering from a political identity crisis, with families torn between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. And voters he talked to seemed to lack enthusiasm for either candidate.

"I've said for the last couple months, there's billions of people in the United States and these are the two best people that we can get to lead us?" Craig Cooper, part of the United Steel Workers Local 1104 said at the time. "Just find that hard to believe. I really do."

"I don't want to be voting against somebody, I want to vote for somebody," Cyndra Cole, a former manager of Republican campaigns, said then. "I want them to tell me; I want Hillary Clinton to tell me what she's going to do for my daughters. Not just because she's the first female president of the United States, but because she cares about women in a way that men can't understand."

"We're going to have to pick one or the other and it's kind of like picking a seat on the Titanic," Greg Sedar, another member of the Local 1104, said. "I'd rather have other choices."

Lisa Tolbert, who was planning to vote for Hillary Clinton, said, "I don't know if I'm very enthusiastic about her. I do think she's qualified. Looking at her resume, she is qualified."

In the end, Ohio went red for Donald Trump. This week, Pelley returns to Ohio to get a sense of how the state is leaning in the race between Trump and Joe Biden. See that story, Sunday.
