As of 12: 57 Eastern time Colorado Sec of State Scott Gessler reported that in early voting Republicans lead Democrats by just under 5.1% http://bit.ly/Sr7nKP
More than half the voters in Colorado had already submitted their ballots prior to today. Here are the early-vote ballot counts as of 10:10 am MT, according to Colorados Secretary of State:
Democrats: 653,450 (34%)
Republicans: 688,303 (36%)
Unaffiliated: 547,437 (29%)
A very good sign for Republicans, who usually perform better on Election Day than in early voting.
I think you can already cue up Dandy Don Meredith for CO: “Turn out the lights, the party’s over.”
Not to be a pessimist, but it all really comes down to which precincts are reporting. If the sample size is fairly homogenous across counties, it is indeed good news. If Denver metropolitan area is underrepresented in that sample, then it’s just pointless to lend this number any meaning.
Anyone know what the 2008 early vote numbers were?
They do not know who these people voted for.
To learn that, we need to see who is counting.
ACORN and SEIU counting the vote?
The unaffiliated will break by good margins for Romney. It won’t be close enough for the democrats to cheat.
A +5 turnout for Republicans over Democrats should mean that Obama is getting demolished in Colorado, shouldn’t it?
Democrats were up 2 points in EV in 2008, according to another thread here.
Actually, the numbers are +2 for the GOP early voting. The 5.1% at the top seems to be a ratio of the GOP/DEM early voting and not the spread.
I thought that Dems have the advantage in early voting. If these numbers are true, than already we can chalk up CO for Romney. ... I feel the earth move under my feet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hoHuxpa4h48&info=CaroleKing
Too early to know anything
Democraps are not even awake yet
thats all early voting. all precincts.
No need to letting the D's know what they need to do.
On the other hand, I do want to know what is going on. Oh My, what to do?
R+5 nationally and Obama gets demolished everywhere.
It’s not R+5, it’s R+2 as an earlier poster mentioned (the thread title is misleading).
It’s not R+anything nationwide in early voting. It’s D+ in Iowa, Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Maryland and West Virginia that I know of. Only Colorado, of all the swing states, is R+. The early voting page at gwu.edu has the 2008 and 2012 numbers.
The good news, supposedly, is that in all cases the ‘D+’ number is lower than it was in 2008 and therefore somehow magically indicates a Romney win IF IF IF IF IF election day voting patterns hold up to what the so-called experts expect AND if Massive Democrat Vote Fraud isn’t too much.
I now. I was saying “If” it’s R+5 nationally after all is said and done....
Now that *would* be sweet. :-)
I think, as per Darth, that VA is plus R in early voting.
Is it? Very cool. I must have missed that one on the early voting page.
