Way to go, Ohio!
Bill Cunningham just reported to Sean that Butler and Hamilton Counties exit polling is coming in and Repub. turnout way up, and dem turnout way down. He was almost giddy with his announcements and thinks it may be an early evening!
Just heard Bill Cunningham on Hannity reporting that GOP vote is way! up in Ohio.
Tin soldiers and Romney coming,
We’re finally on our own.
This November I hear the drumming,
Obama’s dead in Ohio.
Anyone hear anything from VA?
More than half of registered voters in Cuyahoga County have voted
More than half of the registered voters in crucial Cuyahoga County had cast ballots by 2:30 p.m., and Democratic Party officials were hoping to push that number significantly higher to get President Obama the edge he needs in Ohio.
Any thoughts? Please calm me down!!
Give ‘em hell, Ohio!
Hey Chrissy, time for “Back to Ohio, II.”
He was giddy
Yes...we’re winning. lol We had good early voting numbers and Republican turnout is much strong in VA than in 2008. Most polls showed Romney carrying Virginia.
Bill Cunningham had me jumping for joy and screaming Hallelujah. I’m going to pass out when Romney is declared winner early tonight. It’s just going to be so grand I won’t be able to take it. Then I’ll wake up a few minutes later in a new world with NO MORE OBAMA.
He's out on a limb that if Romney wins the Cinci area counties, then he wins Ohio (they have to offset the Cleveland Cesspool fraud/vote). If Romney loses, then Cunningham said he's quitting his radio show.
.....confident and nervous at the same time
Well, if it were closing time, I’d be real happy. Given that GOPers vote on their way to work and the dems vote after rousting themselves up after noon, it is not a factor right now.
The big news is the turnout around Cincy which is significantly higher than 08. I feel good about Ohio but not fully confident just yet.
Great news. I’d feel better if I could believe it. I won’t be content until Romney gets sworn in
Not unless Freeper LS confirms!
How many times are you going to post this?
You are right. This is basically a battle of mostly conservative SW Ohio vs. the liberal scum around Cleveland.
Columbus is a mix by itself.
Would’nt you vote from Cuyahoga County if you were in danger of losing food stamps, Obama phone, rent subsidy, heat subsidy, legal assistance, free translator for medical visit, assistance to dependent children, welfare assistance, unlimited health care via Medicaid.....blah blah blah...?
I’m cautiously optimistic, but still several hours left. I’ve been praying all day!
Whew i’m on edge.
I knocked on doors with a group of volunteers on Saturday and Sunday in Manassas, Virginia. Republican voters are really, really pumped. I expect that Virginia will be called pretty early for Romney.
Well, this news is good, but I feel more nervous than ever. I feel like a kid the night before Christmas.
It better be a blowout, or believe me, the Lawsuits and Recounts in OH will start immediately, and linger for weeks......
The "values voters" groups were aggressively targeting Amish communities in Holmes and Wayne Counties. When the Amish vote, they vote Republican by 3:1 margins.
If true and accurate...and if it holds, this is HUGE NEWS!
It is in line with a lot of the other data we have heard about, but that pundits have pooh-poohed because of their Obama leaning, lopsided poll models.
If this holds, they will call Ohio before 10PM and it may well be completely over by that time. We shall see!
Keep PRAYING FOR AMERICA
Yes, forgot to mention that. It is very important.
I know some people from Geauga. Die hard libs and leftists, every one. At least half of them are voting Romney this year. The other half are literally senile or avowed communists.
I thought Amish didn’t vote?
OH is gonna be a massive bitchslap.
Come on Ohio!!!
No doubt it will be close. VERY close.
The RATs aren’t just going to roll over and let us win. Their voters will turn out too.
According to the MSM polls, we are going to need close to record turnout to win Ohio. According to the anecdotal evidence being reported, we may just get it.
I wonder how many times the “Obama Phone Lady” voted today for Obama?
That’s the key point. Even if they can hit their 2008 percentage, they are still way down in actual votes.
If it was the other way around the MSM would be talking about it all day non-stop.
They didn't used to, but have been more politically active in past few election cycles. The Amish (and the similar Mennonite communities in my area of Ohio) tend to come out to vote where social issues are paramount. This year, at least two groups that I'm aware of have been working to turn out faith-based voters in Ohio, and I'm certain that they have been working in the Amish counties in Ohio as well.
Ari Fleischer @AriFleischer
My GOP sources who know OH are telling me turnout is equal to and greater than Bush 2004...
He leaked the announcement of Bin Laden’s death too. This is encouraging!
