Remember, Obamas entire margin of victory came from Ohio early voting in 2008. John McCain got more votes on election day than Barack Obama:

(He refers to the 18% who voted early in 2008, i.e., Obama is sunk.)
What they also ignore is that Obama was so popular and McCain was so dismal, that a fair number of Republicans voted for “the black guy” to make history. This time, there are a lot of disgruntled, but thinking, democrats.
IOW, some of the republican voters voted for Obama in 2008 and some of the democrats will vote for Romney in 2012, making the numbers even worse for Obama than they already are.
Romney is going to slaughter Obama this time.
Axelrod translation.... “Crap...we couldn’t even steal this thing!”
I quoted him before as saying “No matter what happens, we gave it our all.” HE KNOWS THE NUMBERS.
In addition to more early voting by R's, less by D's (compared to 08) one needs to factor in that is much more likely for D's to be voting for Romney than R's voting for Obama.
He knows he better sharpen his razor.......
Axelrod: Will Shave Mustache
I see who has no one at his rallies and who is setting records and where they are campaigning at says Romney very easy.
>>>Axelrod: Will Shave Mustache
Jen Psink also said that she will dye her red hair black and wear a mustache if Romney wins PA or MI.
Question: The 18% and 9% refer to percentages of RVs or of who actually voted in 2008?
If it’s a % of who voted in 2008 (total, not just early), then it’s a number that doesn’t really say much because we don’t know how many will vote this time. If it’s of RVs, and we know that only about 58% of RVs every vote, then it’s more meaningful.
Would you put money on them keeping their word?
Heck I'll even throw in Dabney Coleman to the mix.
