Early voting isn’t right.

No it’s not. Yahoo News is a liberal nest of vipers. I’ve been on the forum boards there irritating Libs. The writers at Yahoo hate Fox News and are publishing lies to aid Obama.

the flaw in their logic is to assume that all democrats are voting for Obama. While polls show that 93% of republicans intend to vote for Romney, only 83% of democrats intend to vote for Obama.

A freeper pointed out the use of the word seems.

Obama seems to have the early vote? Does he or doesn't he?

Biased article(as usual from Yahoo/AP, also known as Obama’s reelection headquarters). Here’s a much better overview from another source:

Oy heard this in 2008 when early voting showed Obama way ahead.

Frankly Im over it. It is what it is..nothing is going to change votes this late. 48 more hours and we’ll know who has been right.

It's interesting the the rats are thinking their early voting totals are a prelude to a Obama victory since they are leading the GOP in totals...

Nobody knows how these dems voted...

My experience is while waiting in line for 2 hours to vote in Florida, the two women I was talking too were both democrats but were voting for Romney based on economic issues and not lady parts issues..

As for early voting... I think Florida did early voting right...one week before the election... with the massive number of amendments on the ballot this year in Florida....without early voting...it would be a nightmare on election day...

"...several battleground states are releasing the party affiliation of people who have voted early."

It'll be a hell of a surprise to the 'rats when they find out a lot of registered Dems vote for Romney.

One of the people who runs Yahoo Marrissa Meyer is a big Obama supporter. It is fun to go on there and irritate them. CNN is also a great place to poke at liberals.

What the Yahoo article does NOT spend much time on is that the MARGINS for Obama in early voting are much less in each state than four years ago and can be overcome by the election day voting preference for Romney (no one expected Romney to win the early voting, only to close the wide gap that McCain suffered four years ago and he has largely done that). By this analysis, Romney is clearly going to win North Carolina, Florida and Colorado (the latter in which he has WON early voting and will win even bigger on Election Day voting). Iowa, Nevada and Ohio are more doubtful - if I had to pick, Romney will win Iowa by 10,000 and lose Ohio and Nevada. This makes it all the more important that he picks up either: 1) Wisconsin and Minnesota; or, 2) Pennsylvania. Without these, I see Romney clearly winning the popular vote while possibly, losing the Electoral Vote.

Desperate attempt to get turnout. Obama’s base is collapsing.

Low turnout at his events. Michelle is having to go to speak at black
Colleges. They don’t have that vote already??

PA, MN, MI, and even Oregon in play?

Desperate attempt by Pravda media here.

I always go to the source (when interested) and usually reply but this story has great responses...

” So in other words, no votes were counted and no one knows who voted for who. Is anyone, beside me, tired of these pundits trying to call the election before even the first vote is counted?

Yep. But Yahoo got us to click on the story and even post replies. Which, of course, helps them sell advertising space and make more money. No need to be relevant or have anything worthwhile to say in their articles, just get the readers to click and watch the money come in.

You know, Max, complaining on Yahoo about stories on yahoo and posting on yahoo to complain about posting on yahoo seems like some sort of weird Twilight Zone moment.. Just looking on what I just typed I think I might have just opened up a wormhole, crap hear comes that Cyborg...

A new poll shows Romney ahead by a sliver in Michigan (really his home state); if I were him, I would: 1) schedule a rally in the Detroit suburbs for Monday evening; and 2) also go to the one congressional district in Maine where he is close, even if he has to hold a 3 am Tuesday morning rally (this is one electoral vote and he will need all of these).

AP, Obama's Pravda Declares:


"Dear friends, do not worry - Romney is being crushed in early voting like a bug. We will have a come from behind victory on Tuesday night. We are always right - and the early voting favors the President. We feel very good about the outcome!"

bingo and again- this will help Romney as it will motivate people who don’t want another four years of obama’s failed policies to get out and vote him out...

Remember that Absentee ballots have not been opened and counted as to WHO they voted for yet.....

People who voted absentee already are only separated by THEIR PARTY of REGISTRATION as identification ONLY....... not by which candidate they voted for! Not all the Democrats who have voted will be votes for Obozo....... but the MEDIA are counting these votes as if they are for OBOZO.

These stories are last ditch efforts of the media to convince everyone the Obozo is doing just fine...he is NOT! Everyone of us knows someone who is a democrat that will be voting Romney this time.....remember that when you read these 'Last Gasp' stories from the media............

Mike Tobin and Phil Keating have been telling the Friends all morning that early voting in both Ohio and Florida shows Barry ahead. I’m confused.

I notice they failed to mention Independent voters, which will definitely break for Romney and produce a win for is in every single one of those states.

Travis county which is the blue cancer in central Texas (especially Austin) reported early voting was down. Our conservative area in far NW Travis had record early turnout.

I now think Michael Barone was playing it safe.

I’ll move MI, MN and OR to leaning Romney.

Not a good sign. I’m smelling a landslide here.

I remember in 04 when election day exit polls were all favoring Kerry. Hours later those same pundits were choking back tears as they had to call Ohio, and the election, for Bush.

Being ahead for Obama is meaningless, it is by how much that counts.

Democrat EV is way down from 08, GOP way up.

We will close the gap quickly on election day.

That, plus only 10% of people called are answering the pollsters' questions. I'd bet the 90% who aren't talking are NOT for Obama.

According to those who know the state the best, Obama is NOT going to win Ohio. The polls that have him ahead are oversampling Democrats by several percentage points (+9) when the turnout in 2008 was only +8 Democrats. In 2010 the turnout was actually +1 Republican. Even if it is somewhere in between this year, that translates into a Romney win, especially when you consider that Ohio has a Republican governor and attorney general making voter fraud much less of a factor.

I hear ya, but this is much different than ‘08. I think most of us knew McLame was doomed. This is completely different. I think it’s gonna be closer than a lot of other folks on our side do, but Romney does have a very, very good chance to win.

Thanx for the snarky post, tart.
Actually I did a search - but I misspelled something in the title so it didn’t come up. It was then corrected.

fyi - there is no rule about a thread being posted only once. Many articles are posted more than once because people read them at different times of the day - like this one, late last night and early this morning.

My 92 yr old neighbor's daughter told me that her dad asked her to take him to "vote the traitor out" the other day. His last vote was for GHW Bush against the rapist.
