Republican enthusiasm in blue state -- Maryland
observation | Jackson Brown

Posted on 11/06/2012 9:48:10 AM PST by Jackson Brown

Just voted in Maryland.

We live in the northern tip of Montgomery County Maryland, just outside DC As usual, VERY few Dem yard signs in our town of about 18,000 ever -- conservative enclave in liberal county. This year Romney signs all over the place...virtually every house.

Lived here 25+ years and EVERY election in past no lines to vote...we usually just walk right in, vote, and leave in 5 minutes. Always go to polls about 9 AM just after people who vote before going to work are gone.

THIS year -- temps in the low 30s (much colder than ever before (in my memory) -- the line was out the door and down the road -- took 2+ hours to vote.

IOW, the majority republicans who live here know that MD will go democratic and usually don't vote -- yet they showed up in HUGE numbers nonetheless THIS TIME...for the FIRST TIME.

Tells me the enthusiasm to vote republican -- even if unlikely to go our way in our state -- is OFF THE CHART!

I've been voting in the same little school location in the Annapolis area and I have NEVER seen lines like this morning.

The voting judge said it has been like that since the polls opened.

I’ve seen that, too, in Howard County. LOTS of large 4X8 Romney signs beside the highways and secondary roads. Plenty of Romney bumper stickers. Very few 2012 Obama bumper stickers, and no yard signs to speak of. Only old, faded & peeling Obama 2008 bumper stickers. I was confused by it at first.

Line are heavy here in Southern Md.

My advice to people is. “ Don’t go through Anacostia tonight.”

There is going to wailing in the street.

“even if unlikely to go our way in our state”

I would kindly suggest that we not use phrases like this. ANYTHING is possible for this election and we need to stand firm on the the belief that Mitt Romney & Paul Ryan will win these states.

I’ve said it many times and I’ll say it again: I believe that Romney/Ryan are going to win states not traditionally won by Republicans.

We are believing for a Romney/Ryan landslide/blowout! Let’s all stand together and believe for victory, including states like Maryland!

That’s awesome! I wonder how things were at my old polling place in Baltimore. The lines were pretty long there in 2008.

We now live in Denver (first time my vote counts...whoo hoo!), and there was no line at all this morning. Of course, we have early voting. I also live in a very liberal neighborhood.

My wife voted this morning and she said it took her 20 minutes to vote. No big deal until you consider that our town on the bay only has 2500 residents give or take and she usually just walks right in...

I am about to leave to go vote myself. Quick snap poll of people voting from my job site today is 5 Romney 3 Obama.

I pray that trend is nation wide.

I never would have thought a heavy turnout in a deep blue state like Maryland would be a good thing. But after reading your post, not so sure. Any word on the turnout in heavy Dem strongholds in Baltimore?

Part of the high turnout may be due to a number of high profile initiatives on the ballot this time (e.g., gambling and several other issues). But I do think you’re right that Republican enthusiasm is very high, even in the perma-blue state of Maryland.

“IOW, the majority republicans who live here know that MD will go democratic and usually don’t vote — yet they showed up in HUGE numbers nonetheless THIS TIME...for the FIRST TIME.”

This is called ‘mandate’ voting. We want Pres. Romney/VP Ryan to win by as many votes nationally as possible. In that way, your vote DOES count (as does mine here in sadly blue WA State.)

You live in the Damascus/Mt Airy area, which is very conservative. Every second person there is driving an F-250 dually. In other words, you live in America. This has nothing in common with the People’s Socialist Democratic Republic of Montgomery, where everything is Bush’s fault.

Your enthusiasm is getting the better of you. As a MD resident I can assure you that MD will go Dem across the board. Took me 20 min to vote in Howard County this AM.

Lines were long in upper Baltimore County, 5th district. People up here upset over the complete idiocy of the redistricting, among other things. For instance, my rep is now Elijah Cummings - really good fit, right? A lot of people I spoke with voting “No” on just about all of the referendums.

Took us 40 minutes, and normally we have good turnout but this was a great turnout.

No, it’s not, LOL! As a former Maryland resident, I also know of the political situation there, but I’m still believing anything is possible. If we just believe “Maryland will go Democrat across the board” and don’t even have any belief that anything will change, then nothing will change.

I encourage everyone to stand strong and firm: Mitt Romney can and will win this and will win states that Republicans traditionally do not win, in addition to the others!

In Northern CT Obama signs are almost non existent, while Romney signs are all over the place. Never had a line longer than a dozen or so people, this time waits of 20 min to a hour in a town of 11K.

As an aside, why would the mods pull this from ‘breaking news’ when this is a report from the polls today? Is that not news, and in fact breaking news? Let’s honor our citizen journalists and not impute that the only thing to qualify as ‘news’ is reported by the Corrupted Media...

As a 30 yr resident of the state my current belief is based upon the track record of MD voters, the occasional Ehrlich notwithstanding. While I share your wishful thinking the facts on the ground indicate otherwise.

Yep you got the area. Your NOT getting the point.

We are a strongly republican area -- BUT republicans vote here in low numbers since they assume that it will do no good in a heavy blue state...most don't expect to have any affect on the the gambling and gay marriage issues.

If the republican turn out here is HUGE -- FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, than it means that it is very likely that the RED turnout in the swing states -- NOT MD -- will surprise the pollsters and their +9 dem calculations.

I lived in Maryland for a while too, bugged out of Greenbelt (and the state) back in 1990 just as the sewage from the rest of P.G. county oozed north and overwhelmed the place.

So Romney is going to take Maryland, eh? I hope you’re right, but you better click your heels together 3 times while you’re saying that, Dorothy. Unlike Oz, wishing doesn’t make it so.

We can hope and pray that Cardin goes down in flames too (wouldn’t THAT be sweet!) but here in the real world, he’s going back to the Senate for as long as he wants to.

Voted today at Carney Elementary in Parkville, MD. This is a very swing precinct. My Father who represents the area lost it in 2006 and won it in 2010. The line was long and full of a lot of friendly faces, Romney will win this precinct, but not MD. My hope is he hits 43% or higher. That is what GWB got in 2004.

I was hoping someone would post a Maryland thread.

My experience is similar. I live in an unincorporated hamlet of less than 8,000 in Anne Arundel County. Our precinct is pretty red - 60% McCain in 08, 62% Bush in 04, 65% Ehrlich in 10, 65% - 70% for hopeless congressional and senatorial candidates and local candidates. Our precinct is over 90% white, affluent, highly-educated.

Never waited more than five or ten minutes to vote, except in 08 when I waited a little longer in a line of maybe 20 folks. I always vote mid-morning on election day.

Well, went down to the volunteer firehouse around 10:15 like I do every year. Couldn’t fine parking. Had to park illegally.

Got in the door - there are three lines of around 20 folks each to get to the election judges to get our little plastic voting card, and then another 40 or 50 people waiting in line to get into the voting machines. Over 100 folks! It’s been like this since we opened at 7 am, says one of the election judges. 450 folks have voted (out of about 2100) so far in three and a half hours, they tell me (do the math - even without counting early voting, which was very heavy this year, that’s nearly 85% turnout over the course of the day, IF IT DOESN’T PICK UP DURING THE AFTER-WORK HOURS!). When I left, there was a line outside to get into the firehouse.

It took nearly an hour for me to vote. A truly unreal experience in my little red corner of a deeply blue state.

I have no expectation that Gov. Romney will win Maryland, but if we’re seeing this kind of Republican precinct turnout HERE, what does it mean in Ohio? Pennsylvania? Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan??

There may be a reason why Romney is campaigning in Obama territory and Obama is campaigning in,... well,... Obama territory.

The morning line was huge in 2008 too and my county went to Obama, long in 2004 too and it went to Kerry. That is why I didnt join them this morning.

I think some of these Maryland GOPs posting here are misguided, In a deep blue state you want LOW turnout not high turnout.

I will go vote after they are home after dark. O is still popular here.

I will report in soon. Heading to my Baltimore County polling place within the next hour - waiting for the Mrs. to get home. In 2008, there wasn't a long line, maybe waited five to ten minutes tops. Voted Libertarian then, it was such a lost cause and I didn't like McCain. In 2004, I lived in Baltimore City and my Greektown polling place was almost a ghost town. I've been lulled into thinking that voting takes ten minutes and that Maryland is a no-contest Democrat state.

Might be wrong on both counts today.

I am very nervous today. Fraud is occurring in Philly. The polls, even the ones like Gallup that showed a potential landslide, tightened fast after Sandy. One one hand we have a terrible economy and enthusiasm for Romney from both Republicans and Independents. On the other, we have a very big obstacle in the one-sided media and the Democrat machine. I knew Obama would win in 2008. It was clear despite our feelings on the matter. This election is very difficult to make sense of. I don't think any outcome would surprise me. It is easier to be pessimistic in a place like Baltimore, where one gets to see stupidity, incompetence and corruption consistently be rewarded at the polls.

Interesting observation, because in the America where I live, Ford doesn’t make, and never HAS made, an F-250 dually.

I guess everyone in this magical land of yours is into truck rear-end conversions. I might search for the rip in the time-space continuum and come out for a visit — sounds like an interesting place for a SuperDuty-head to hang out. :-)

Voted this morning in southern MD (NAS Pax River area) around 8:30am. Quite a line, as I imagine quite a few were people voting before they went to work. A handwritten sign on a chalkboard (I voted at an elementary school across the street from our house) said there had been 139 voters as of 8am, polls opened at 7am. My husband left for work at a quarter to 7 and called to tell me that the school parking lot was already starting to fill up. As a special education teachers aide, our kids and I have the day off from school so I'm at home trying not to wear a hole in the floor from nerves. I've been cleaning house trying to keep from sitting down and turning on the news.

Being that this is Steny Hoyer (*spit*) country (cause there are a LOT of people here stupid enough to think he supposedly saved Pax River from BRAC) I can only hope and pray there's some sense in this state but I'm not holding my breath...

Wrong!! In a deep blue State like yours the expectation is it will remain so and this depresses the Rep voter. However when the turnout is high DESPITE the fact they believe the State will stay blue it means this same excitement among Rep. will ocurr Nationwide and we benefit in those States we can and must win.

As I said up thread, voting in blue states for the R/R ticket improves their standing nationally (mandate voting.)

High turnout in a Dem state means lots of Dems are voting. This is pretty simple to follow.

If Dems there were demoralized then that Dem state would have low turnout. Maryland had huge turnout in 2008. Was that a good sign?

I love that we’re talking about MD! Somehow the fact that we’re thinking about strategy at all in the deep blue states, makes a change of heart in places like my state - Washington State - seem possible...go McKenna (Gov. WA - R).

Of course OH, and PA are huge today...and all the other swing states...

I am really encouraged to hear your report.

My guess is that the same-sex versus traditional marriage issue being on your state ballot is also juicing up voter interest. If we can get Romney to reach even 45%, I’d be thrilled.

I suspect that in the blue parts of Maryland, many black voters will split their ballot by voting for traditional marriage but still pulling the lever of Obama. I do think that similar referendums on traditional marriage will help us in Minnesota, which is more Caucasian and less likely to have voters who support traditional marriage but also Obama.

Wrong. Even in a mostly Dem state there are many many Repubs. They often don't bother voting. High turnout is not automatically the whole crossection. It could be just the repubicans.

You are absolutely right. But Maryland didn't just have "huge" turnout in 2008, they had record-setting turnout. Not just in the number of voters, but in the percentage of voting-age population that actually voted.

And that went sooooo well for the Republicans.

Factor in that MD's demographics haven't exactly improved in the last 4 years, and the supposedly large turnout we're seeing in 2012 might mean than Bonzo gets to 65% instead of the mere 62% he got in '08. Or maybe a few more R's are coming out and we hold him to 59%.

Well in this Dem state it means that both are voting, as it did in 2008. Dems loved O in 2008 and RINOs here loved McCain. Rs are pretty much RINOs here and they loved McCain and now Romney. Dems here STILL love O, not doubt about that.

My point here is :”Don't use this state as an example of anything good”

My understanding was this high turnout was in a heavily Rep. District and it was being compared to 2008 turnout. In that case it is not just good, it is great.
