Do we have any news from VA? The Dem turnout machine there is rumored to be massive.
It’s been my prediction that Obama would win Virginia and the MSM would essentially declare the race over and then Romney would win Ohio, Wisconsin, and Colorado and win the presidency.
I’m a little worried about VA as well. I’m here in Richmond, and I have heard about high turnout in NOVA.
I do not have any information, just sharing my gut feeling right now.
One polling place in Fairfax was steady heavy voting at 0900 EST. The parking for voters at the high school had a line in which to park because it was so full.
Both of these counties are normally in the D column.
On the other hand, 3 hour lines across Virginia Beach, which is good news. We’ll just have to wait until they count the votes.
“Do we have any news from VA? The Dem turnout machine there is rumored to be massive.”
Dems always lead early. Repubs have to leave work and go to the polls, because Repubs also are less likely to use the early vote option. Common sense people...
All I can say is this, GOP boxes in my area that I know well are off the charts today in Western Fairfax. Drove by one at 4:00 just now and it was still full.
Just heard from two friends, one in Alexandria, one in Arlington that said the lines were very long (this is the strongest D area in the Commonwealth) and that the D’s working the tables outside in both places were freaked out by the number of people taking GOP sample ballots. Not to say they won’t get their numbers there, but they won’t be by the margins they usually run up.
Checking in from VA. Pretty much everyone that I know that could voted to day in NOVA. Majority were of the “Voted for Obama last time, not this time” crowd. I took it as a good sign.
Va vote thread with reports and links.
Not to sunshine pump, but Loudon will go huge for Mitt with exception of a couple of bad pockets (barrios).
I think Fairfax is going to be closer than usual which means that VA will be Mitt’s easily. Just guessing though.
Not this sh*t again!
Would some of you people take a deep breath and just freaking relax! Good grief this is getting old.
Hey, you might get hit from a meteor to...oh no!
The one time we really had some scandalous vote fraud involved a fellow named Sanders who was actually the first East Asian person to ever get elected to the state legislature.
The Democrats here were fit to be tied ~ they did not want an East Asian Republican to be elected so they were in charge of the votes and counted and recounted them until one of their peeps won.
Wouldn't turn my back on a Democrat around here for anything.
Saw a report earlier on FNC that the VA turn out was very high - video of long lines. And the commenter said it would be a late night there. As well as Fl.
I am in Northern Virginia and the line was massive. The longest I’ve ever waited to vote. Sadly, I am in a Dem stronghold and most of the crowd was pretty clearly not Romney supporters.
Saying that, I have also heard turnout is solid GOP areas is extremely high. Looks to me like both camps got their base vote out.
Well Michael Barone just said on Hannity that all of the Democrat areas in Virginia are way down.
Massive lines (about 90 minute wait) for the two separate precinct’s at the local elementary school. Very quiet and orderly. Two campaign workers passing out sample ballots and issue papers. The crowd was larger than any I have ever encountered in 30 years in Northern Virginia.
Very heavy turnout in Chesterfield which is a good sign for Romney imo.
I am in downtown Richmond, heavily democratic. I voted at 7:30 and it was heavy, but I was out within 1 hour. My husband voted at 3 pm. and it took him all of 5 minutes - no wait at all.
One guy said he came out at 5:30 am and was the 100th person in line. I think Romney is going to win Virginia. Could be wrong.
Barone can tell you your neighbor’s name and shoe size.
