Looking very good for Romney in OH — and with early voters. Obama ’08 counties down a bit, with GOP participation up. And counties that went Bush or McCain are up almost 15% over ’08.
Stephen, is this from Gannett’s Cincinnati paper? I saw that data (and early voting does look like it’s going to Romney) but they pulled the link from the main page (although it’s still on the website).
My gut is that, since Ohio doesn’t “report” early voting, they got that info under the table, and someone yelled at them for it.
I believe these are the EV ballot requests, but I could be wrong.
This is what you were reading, I’m guessing (http://www.breitbart.com/InstaBlog/2012/11/06/Ohio-Early-Vote-Down-4-1-In-Blue-Counties-Up-14-4-In-Red)?
That actually jives with what Gannett posted (http://hotair.com/archives/2012/11/06/romney-up-92k-in-oh-early-voting/ and read also http://news.cincinnati.com/article/20121106/NEWS010601/311060015/Ohio-presidential-vote-by-counties?odyssey=nav|head&gcheck=1&nclick_check=1)
But if that data holds up, then we have Cuyahoga County’s Early Voting at 113,373 Obama 127,570 Romney, and this county went Barack Obama 458,422; John McCain 199,880 back in 2008.
If those numbers are indicative of anything, Romney is definitely outperforming 2008……and making in roads into one of Obama’s “Must Win” areas.
I grew up in Cuyahoga County. If he is even competitive there (he won’t win), then Ohio is going big for Romney.
Holy Cow! I grew up down the pike in Mansfield. If in fact Romney got more votes that Obama in EV’s from Cuyahoga, given the O-camp’s EV hype the fact that the county is a Democrat stronghold…well…that’s just remarkable.
Whelp, darn. http://news.cincinnati.com/article/20121106/CINCI/121106009/
Hah, maybe that’s what happens when you need to visit the “Not Enough Coffee and Booze” thread but can’t.
Took about an hour for me to vote in Toledo. 7 new/renewal levies, city and county races, 2 constitutional amendments along with the usual suspects. (sorry kiddies, not supporting the schools this time until you throw out the unions and actually improve education.) The machine did record my vote correctly, so no hijinks there. Only thing was, there was one young lady whom I saw at the machine twice while I stood in line. How did I know it was her, twice, well, she was cute in a young, Bohemian way, with legs that didn’t stop (and we had a frost last night) and a really nice behind. When you’re 20 years younger than most everyone else in the polling station, and have watched Apollo 11 live, you notice these things.
Watch the ballots cast over registered voters in Lucas County number. I suspect it is going to be larger than 1.
Voted in Butler County (North of Cincy)
Went in at 9AM. Last several elections it was a 2-4 minute wait.
The line went through the building and out the door. Huge turnout. In a very heavy GOP (OH -08 Boehner) district.
I did not note any broken glass, but I would have low crawled through it.
Also, got to take my daughter to vote for the first time.
Ride right through ‘em. You know the drill.
