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!

Tin soldiers and Romney coming,
We’re finally on our own.
This November I hear the drumming,
Obama’s dead in Ohio.

More than half of registered voters in Cuyahoga County have voted

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/election-2012/wp/2012/11/06/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!!

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.

"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!"

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.

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.

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 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.

I grew up in Geauga County. Those people have always been serious conservatives and that hasn't changed despite some adulteration by liberals fleeing Cuyahoga's eastside.

A heavy turnout in Cuyahoga is absolutely essential to democrats, but it is not enough by itself. With all the other reports of turnout trends across the state, I'm not worried by this. For one thing, CC has a couple hundred thousand fewer voters than in 2008, so the bar is higher than ever.

The turnout in Cincy is down according to Cunningham... that is just as important!

Wonder if the Amish are turning out...

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!

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.

Red counties having outstanding turnout. Geuaga (SP) is already at 125% of 08. Ham at 85% as of 3:30 with four hours to vote! Lines in Montgomery Co. red precincts were 1/2 to 1.5 hours long (!)

OH is gonna be a massive bitchslap.

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.

That’s the key point. Even if they can hit their 2008 percentage, they are still way down in actual votes.

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.
