Absentee Ballot Data Ohio Shows Bad News

...for those who believe Ohio will be as Democrat-heavy or more so than 2008.

A short sample of the shift, with link to the data at the end:

Champaign County: Was +3% GOP, now +23% GOP – 20 point shift.

Columbiana County: Was +9% DEM, now +9% GOP – 18 point shift.

Crawford County: Was +3% DEM, now +12% GOP – 15 point shift.

Cuyahoga County: Was +36% DEM, now +30% DEM (GOP already has 6,000 more requests than in 200 – 6 point shift.

Erie County: Was +24% DEM, now +7% DEM -17 point shift.

Franklin County: Was +5% DEM, now +5% GOP – 10 point shift.

Greene County: Was +4% DEM, now +19% GOP – 23 point shift.

Harrison County: Was +22% DEM, now +5% DEM – 17 point shift.

Hamilton County: Was +7% GOP, now +13% GOP – 6 point shift.

Licking County: Was TIED, now +16% GOP – 16 point shift.

Montgomery County: Was +29% DEM, now +5% DEM – 24 point shift.

Muskingum County: Was +1% DEM, now +16% GOP – 17 point shift.

Pickaway County: Was +12% DEM, now +15% GOP – 27 point shift.

Seneca County: Was +1% DEM, now +13% GOP – 14 point shift.

Summit County: Was +33% DEM, now +6 DEM – 27 point shift.

Wood County: Was +10% DEM, now +1% GOP – 11 point shift.

Link to ningrim's thankless task here, and give him a follow while you're at it.

The statewide reported gap is D+5.51%, nearly a third of what the Democrats had enjoyed in 2008. Same-day voting in Ohio leaned more in McCain's favor four years ago, but the early vote crushed him. I suspect after last night's debate a considerable number of Republicans are itching to get their ballots back.

Thank you TFG!!

Also 2 things to watch for.

1. they're cutting 19 states from the exit polling.
They're trying to say that the states they are cutting are equally sure wins for one or the other candidate.

THIS IS A LIE.

2. The latest spin is that Romney lied last night. About everything.

No, the gap is closing for the Republicans. Ohio had Dems ahead by about 100,000 absentee ballots submitted at the start. The gap has narrowed to 60,000 ballots. For comparison, in 2008 the Dems lead by about 250,000.

I've seen this too. Same as the Ryan speech, even though the worst thing they could come up with him having lied about was not even a lie. I think this is the new tactic of the so-called party of the intellectuals. Don't debate or attempt to refute. Just say everything's a lie. It's easier that way.

29 All you really need to know about Ohio counties is this:

Cleveland = Cuyahoga
Columbus = Franklin
Cincinnati - Hamilton

Columbus will decide the Ohio election. If these stats are even remotely reliable in any way, the 10pt shift in Franklin county will win Ohio for Romney.

Do you think there are a large number of Republicans who use early voting, who crossed over for Obama? I don't think very many Republicans are voting for Obama, period, and certainly not the most engaged Republicans.

The only reason to pull from Florida is because you think it is money wasted. It certainly isn't because you think you are going to win easily.

55 Yeah, I interpret it the same. They want to spend in places that are closer like Colorado.

Not saying they will win WI, just that Obama is further ahead there. Plus Obama can lose WI and still win, but losing Ohio makes winning very very difficult.

Pulling ads from Florida though is very interesting. That should mean that their internals show Obama losing in Florida by at least as much as it shows him winning Wisconsin.

We are a military town so a better turnout was expected, but that is significant. The amazing thing is that their are more new registered republicans SINCE 2010.

It's a trap...for Barky...one that he has laid out there, for himself.

Mitt played it well, too.
He just said..."I have no idea what you're talking about".
Which is plausible, because he's right...there *is no* subsidy.

What there is....is a Tax Savings....and usually a bump in your Stock Price, when a company shuts down a factory here, and moves their operation overseas.

The company that does this,is not onlysaving taxes on SS/Med/UnemploymentTaxes...but they are also saving on Property Taxes, Liability Insurance, and the higher wage costs here in the US.

Barky does not want to be faced with explaining this.

Pulling ads from Florida though is very interesting. That should mean that their internals show Obama losing in Florida by at least as much as it shows him winning Wisconsin.
Posted by: Dave in Fla at October 04, 2012 07:36 PM (dX4hn)

Do you think Romney isgoing to lose Wisconsin? They have their hometown boy Ryan, and they just went through a series of elections where the Democrats got slapped down hard.

I think it will be interesting to see where they are putting their money next?
Oregon?, PA?, IA? IL? or where?

126 PA is redder than the media has been trying to make it.

Got rid of Lyin' Ed Rendell. The Senate race is looking up.

There was some redistricting so there may be changes/chances there.

Although the UE rate isn't too bad, Obarky has stepped on his dick with the energy regs and his attempt to screw with the farmers kids and a few other ongoing F'ups in the agricultural venue.

People forget this is a bigger dairy state than WI and also other crops.

Prices are ridiculous and fuel costs hurt the farmer.

Philly and Pitt will go blue and a few other spots but I think PA is going red this year.

133 By the way, gas on I-5 is 470.9. Excellent job, SCoaMF.

If California, that's not the usual SCoaMF. That's Moonbeam and his buddies in Sacramento. SoCal is about to be out of gas because California has its own summer and winter gas blends, and Exxon's refinery went down just after two others went off line to convert from summer to winter.

If the state doesn't issue a waiver so we can get the winter blend early, we're screwed. (NorCal goes to the winter blend Sept.30, SoCal Oct.31, so there's enough gas if the waiver comes through. My friends in the oil business are of the opinion that this is a 10th Amendment issue -- the Feds should step in and standardize the blends by season and altitude, not by state.)

Then they never touched him with a tough question for 4 years. No one has ever gotten in his face, including McCain.When it happened, he was wiped out, looked like a kid who had gotten caught stealing.

Someone else had an interesting comment about how Obama didn't use his usual condescending clippedspeaking cadence last night, but spoke normally. The poster postulated that Obama can only speak in that weird cadence when he's reading the teleprompter.

219 It doesn't mean much. It is quite possible that the turnout on Election Day will favor Obama.

However, a little anecdotal "evidence" that means something, or nothing. I live in the Chicago suburbs. Chicago IS Obama territory, as is Cook County. In places around here where there was block upon block of Obama/Biden signs, there are very few to be seen. Same goes for Obama/Biden bumper stickers. In 2008, 1/2 the women at my kid's grade school wore their "Women for Obama" shirts almost daily. Now, I see two or three. Romney signs are evident in a few places, where Obama signs were in 2008. Does it mean anything? Perhaps. Perhaps not. Also, two of my neighbors, both strong Dems, are sitting the election out. Again, does it mean anything? I don't know, but I find it interesting. I know Illinois is going to go Obama, but, I find the lack of enthusiasm interesting.

240 Romney is down 11 points in WI, according to the MU poll out yesterday.
Mark Belling said the campaign is desperate for volunteers in WI to
make phone calls and Walker has a robo call out trying to get people to
help out on Saturday. Belling also said he's heard Romney has given up
in WI, which makes sense since very few ads are up.



Posted by: wolf at October 04, 2012 08:16 PM (Lf/c1)

Romney - More Pos/More Neg +8% differential

So a net 10% movement toward Romney within the 33% subsample that was polled after the debate.

4% movement toward Romney in the poll between pre-debate respondents and post-debate.

And no partisan split provided.

Was Obama rattled by developing donor scandal story?



President Obama reelection campaign, rattled by his Wednesday night debate performance, could be in for even worse news. According to knowlegable sources, a national magazine and a national web site are preparing a blockbuster donor scandal story.
Sources told Secrets that the Obama campaign has been trying to block the story. But a key source said it plans to publish the story Friday or, more likely, Monday.
According to the sources, a taxpayer watchdog group conducted a nine-month investigation into presidential and congressional fundraising and has uncovered thousands of cases of credit card solicitations and donations to Obama and Capitol Hill, allegedly from unsecure accounts, and many from overseas. That might be a violation of federal election laws.

293 That's true. But what some folks (I'm looking at you, Christopher) didn't know is polls have always been garbage.

They've had limited validity in the past not for individual snapshots but to show overall momentum or a tendency in the country. So they haven't always been trash, just mostly so. Now they're complete trash and the Pew Research Center all but admits it in the article where they noted the 9% factor.

I couldn't be happier.

From the link:


At the end of the 2008
presidential campaign, the Obama-Biden effort was hit with a similar
scandal. At the time, the Washington Post reported that the Obama
campaign let donors use "largely untraceable prepaid credit cards that
could potentially be used to evade limits on how much an individual is
legally allowed to give or to mask a contributor's identity."





Unfortunately this will go nowhere, just like as noted in 2008. Fortunately it doesn't matter in this election. Romney is now outside the margin of the Democrat chronic margin of fraudulent votes.

Not really, at least on one level. The individual states where they're canceling exit polling are clearly in one camp or another.The real problem with this is that 16 of 19 states on that list are firmly in the Romney/GOP camp. It's all about the MFM trying to kill GOP turnout by not reporting on the impending electoral tsunami. Not to mention, prepping the battlespace for the inevitable Kloppenburg-style electoral lawsuit/attempted election theft.

The WaPo had nothing to do with that. Pam Geller started it all off by donating money as "John Galt" and then conservative blogs got into the act by making donations in all sorts of ridiculous names - "saddam hussein", "joseph stalin", "asdfijkjsdh", ...

We all knew that the AVS was turned off and that it was done intentionally (since default was "on" and no one with a brain would turn it off as that would only cost them in chargebacks). Clearly it was illegal and one of Barky's first - of more than 40 - obviously impeachable acts (though his illegal and totally repulsive campaign rally in a foreign nation ... for foreigners ... ahd already taken place and was about the worst offense an American political candidate can commit).

But, Barky was only running against the miserable piece of shit who wrote a totally un-Constitutional and insane campaign finance law, a guy who couldn't be bothered to try and note any campaign finance irregularities or CRIMES (crimes against normal law and our Constitution, not against McShame's insane law, though against that too) and all McShame could come up with over the ILLEGAL and repulsive Berlin campaign rally was ... "celebrity"!! while not even bothering to have the AVS stuff checked.

All of these fatal problems for America could have been nipped in the bud, if only we had a few people who were willing to enforce the law and protect American sovereignty and our Constitution, which didn't allow a non-natural born citizen to vie for the Presidency, anyway.

You have to remember that these are people who believe that "truth" is whatever they say it is.

Unlike some other candidates in years past, Romney had the temerity to say "no, the truth is what is objectively real and that objective reality is NOT the narrative you are pushing".

For this temerity Romney is branded a "liar"- kind of like how global warming skeptics are branded "liars" and "deniers".

Hamilton County is going so hard red that the 1st district incumbent, Steve Chabot, is barely campaigning. He's not taking it easy, but it's not the "Fight for your life" brawl he was in last time to get his seat back after losing it in the SCOAMF wave of '08.

Floundering.. flopping around like a dying fish he was! Epic.. I tell you.. EPIC!

He said Romney was all about "Hey" *picks ass up from floor and offers it to Barky* "I think you dropped this."

In addition to Coulter's ideas that we should kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity, we might also consider Anglicising all their spelling. That would really teach the illiterate bastards. In the 'Stan, I mean. Canadians, I'd pretty much let spell however they like. They're neighbours.

People got to see one guy who's qualified and who has been vilified by the MFM, and the other who has been carried by the MFM and is a smug, fraudulent, divisive, lazy chump.

Nightmare recap for the low info types that just tuned in - the reality is that the second guy has been precedent for the past 3 and a half years, and the MFM has been fondling his balls.

It’s October 11 at Centre College in Danville Kentucky. Joe Biden
has gotten off to a bad start in the Vice Presidential debate, saying (in a bad
Southern accent) how much he loves Kentucky
“where the horses are beautiful and the women are fast.” Next he notes that Ann
Romney is “smokin’ hot”. Things go downhill quickly. Biden says that age should
not be an issue in the campaign, “and I will not take advantage of my opponent’s
youth and inexperience”. Ryan responds, “to
paraphrase Lloyd Bentsen, Ronald Reagan
was a hero of mine. You, Mr. Vice President,
are no Ronald Reagan.” Biden: “Who’s talking
about Reagan?” As the debate proceeds, Biden drops several f bombs, calls Bashir Assad a reformer and an
ally of the United States, doesn’t seem to remember the Benghazi consulate
attack. Sixty minutes in, as Ryan is delivering a withering attack on the Obama
economic record, Biden utters a loud gasp and staggers away from the podium, grasping
his chest. With a painful grimace, he
falls- very gracefully- to the floor, between the two podiums. Ryan, closest to
him, immediately runs, kneels, turns Biden on his back and begins CPR. The
cameras keep rolling as aides and Secret Service rush the stage. It’s hard to
see but it appears Biden , still on his back, is trying to push Ryan off. The
mikes, still live, pick him up: “Get the fuck off me, faggot. I’m having a
heart attack here.”

A week later, the Obama campaign finally finds a new VP nominee. It’s confirmed that six Senators and
governors turned down the job, and there are rumors that at least a dozen more
were approached. Finally, Barbara Boxer agrees to step in; a week later, a video
made at her first fundraiser as a VP candidate surfaces; Senator Boxer boasts that
Obama has promised that if elected, she will be nominated to the next Supreme Court vacancy. Neither the Obama campaign nor the White
House comments.
