Excellent news if true.

If the pundits tonight start talking about “unexpected high turnout in GOP areas”, you know it’s pretty much in the bag.

I’m all for a clean sweep, a blowout, but I’ll take the smallest margin of victory if it means denying Barack Obama another four years! This contest is literally good vs. evil.

I want Romney to win big. Big enough that no amount of “found” ballots can make up the difference.

got a text just a short time ago, from my son who cast his vote for Romney/Ryan. Said all his friends are voting Romney. Son lives in Ohio, just south of Columbus. Woot.

Spoke to two people today, who listed friends, employees, and relatives - WHO HAVE NEVER VOTED BEFORE - all voted for Romney today.

I pray for a numbing, humiliating, butt kicking landslide for Romney. I'm a hard woman. :)))

What I want to know is the GOP turnout in Kerry/obama counties.

“unexpected high turnout in GOP areas”

Would this merit an "unexpected" ping, or should that just be limited to jobless reports?

It would be the ultimate in “Unexpected” pings.

"I want Romney to win big. Big enough that no amount of “found” ballots can make up the difference."

Same here.....I KNOW a close Election outcome in Ohio means a "Franken" style outcome, with Found ballots, Lawsuits, Hanging Chads, Voter-Intent, etc. and an un-ending dragged-out mess......

My polling place this morning had RECORD turnout, all parking spaces filled, and the Election Poll Worker told me they were lined up a half hour before the Polls opened. We live in a Cuyahoga County suburb, Romney/Ryan signs EVERYWHERE, and are trying to offset the Fraud in the County Cesspool (Cleveland), so that Ohio goes the Right Way.

I fear the Libs long-term strategy is to so totally debase the election process to the point where nobody has any confidence in it, making the country ungovernable via a Democratic process. Enter the alternative.

It’s all good in the neighborhood. But let’s not pop our corks yet. We still have a long nite ahead.

As for you Terry,

Cuyahoga (Kerry/Obama county): In 2008, 36,000 republicans voted early/absentee; In 2012, that number is 53,000. So there’s your republican surge in democratic cuyahoga.

Keep our foot on the pedal.

I want Obama to feel like used gum on the underside of a chair:

Used up, Unwanted, Discarded, and gives you a feeling of needing a good washing after you accidently touch it.

Same in Summit County Ohio this morning. I got there about 6:45. Line was almost out the door (about a 45 minute wait to vote). No problems and the line was moving but slowly.

I think I was #56. In 2008 the precinct had just over 1200 votes total with McCain by a few % over Obama. I'm not sure if that included absentee and early voting. I voted early that year as I was out of town on election day.

My guess would be a large % were voting for Romney this year but a few Obama supporters. Hoping we outnumber them by enough to cover any funny stuff going on in other precincts.

At NRO they are hinting that Virginia may be more of a problem for Romney than Ohio.

I was really glad to see the Romney Facebook page call for people to make calls to voters today.

We need everybody on the phones getting those voters to the polls.

I registered 15 new voters this year and talked with over 300. I have not spoken with anyone that has not already voted for Romney. Now I am in Mississippi but this is seemingly happening everywhere.

Was that verified with the elections office (or can you even do that)?

If so, wow. Turnout machine does sound good.

It came from the top election official in Hamilton County... undisputed according to Cunningham.

Yep, and I want Obama to live to at least the age of 101 so he can feel that way for 50 years
