Hi,

Can you correct my grammar?

The two major parties in Ohio are the Democratic Party and the Republican Party. These two parties are evenly represented in the Ohio government.

In the Ohio State Senate the Republicans have the firm control, while in the Ohio House of Representatives it is the Democrats who control the delegation.

The Ohio Congressional Delegation is relatively pared as well because there are 10 representatives who are Democrats and 8 who are Republicans.

Ohio was important to President George W. Bush’s election chances, as it was a state he won by nearly 4 points in 2000 and by the fact that no Republican has ever been elected President without winning Ohio.

okay, thanks Emotion: big smile
One more:
I'd say "the Ohio country" would be okay in describing the events of the 1600's, before legal boundaries were considered.
Also, note the apostrophe in "1600's," which I believe is the correct form.

okay, thanks Emotion: smile

and one more question from me.. is this correct? because im not sure if you say: are or is:

According to a poll from 2008, 26 % of the Ohio’s population are identified as Evangelical protestant, 22 % as mainline protestant, and 21 % as Roman Catholic. There are also small minorities of Jehovah’s Witness, Jews, Muslims and Hindus. But 17 % of the Ohio’s population doesn’t have any religion.

No, no apostrophe in the 1600s. The apostrophe is a possessive marker, not a plural marker. It is grudgingly approved only in a very limited number of cases which would otherwise look confusing, as in this: mind your p's and q's.
