Skip to comments.Romney up 92K in OH early voting? Update: Gannett pulls link
Posted on 11/06/2012 6:53:26 AM PST by rlbedfor
Mitt Romney already has 697,143 votes before the polls opened a couple of hours ago, while Barack Obama only has 605,546, a difference of almost 92,000 votes. The data is time-stamped at 2:03 ET this morning, and the link on the front page of the site reads, Early voters: How Ohio has voted.
A few counties have not yet reported any early-voting results, but one county in particular looks huge. Cuyahoga, which includes Cleveland, should be a Democratic stronghold, and perhaps the one area where Democratic early-voting efforts should have produced their biggest lead. Instead, Romney has a lead of about 14,000 votes already, 127,570 to 113,373. In Hamilton County, where Cincinnati itself is located, Romney leads by over 5,000, 29,969 to 24,808. A quick scan of the data shows Romney leading in every county with more than 25,000 EVs.
This may be a very big deal, if these numbers are correct.
Freeper made video featuring a FR clip:You Shouldn't vote...(for Obama) hits 1,100 views.
My knowledge of Ohio is pretty limited, but shouldn’t Romney have a bigger lead in Cincinnati? I thought that was Republican territory...
Don’t believe it. To early to tell. By early evening if the trend hold up then maybe.
And also remember that just tells them how many votes need to be made up.
The socialists got the 0bamacare win. Now it’s OUR turn.
And they assume that ALL (D) voters vote for Obozo. That ain’t necessarily so.............
Just passing along. If these are true, Obama is so going to loose as historically D’s are ahead in early voting in OH and then the R’s come in on Tuesday to overcome the early voting lead ( or not ).
These would be actual early votes if the story is true.
That’s about 20% more for Romney than for Obama, and Dems are supposedly the bigger early voters.
...”historically Ds are ahead in early voting in OH and then the Rs come in on Tuesday to overcome the early voting lead”....after they get off work......LOL.
Can’t imagine those numbers are accurate.
Hope so because it would point to a blowout Romney win in Ohio, but most are expecting Obama to have anywhere between a 10% to 25% lead in the early voting numbers there.
They crammed down 0bamacare,
time to retaliate and cram down an enforcement of the enumerated powers.
Any existing policy or law that does not specifically satisfy an Article I, Section 8 category is up for review and removal.
How would anyone know how the early vote turned out? I thought they were not tallied until election day?
That report only showed 55000 votes counted so far for Cincinnati so 5000 is a big lead.
You’re confusing early voting with absentee/provisional ballots.
If Romney is up in Ohio by 92K in early voting, paint Ohio red on the map. It was reported yesterday that the Obama campaign would “declare victory” based on early returns in Ohio in order to discourage and demoralize the Romney vote. This situation, if indeed true, would put the shoe on the other foot.
Hopeful but not expectant. Don’t want to be crushed by wishful thinking.
Do you mean the early votes are calculated ahead of time, but the provisional/absentees are not? Help me out here!
