Posted on 11/06/2012 2:47:03 PM PST by Clint N. Suhks
This is what the Romney folks say is encouraging them. Passed along for what its worth:
Adams County (lean D county) strong R turnout based on morning data on track to win since first time in 1984.
AB/EV margins will be hard for them to overcome today. Right now its a virtual tie.
Arapahoe (Swing County) 4860 D, 5271 R Election Day so far
Over 83% of the vote was AB/EV Dem: 75653 Rep: 75812
Jefferson County (Swing) 78738 D, 85378 R for AB/EV
Waiting on election day
Teller County (Hard GOP) 173 D, 656 R for election day
Winning 5-1 with AB/EV clearly outperforming 2008
Archuletta/ Moffatt western slope counties where we needed to run up the score. Well here you go:
Republicans are already over-performing their share of returned absentee ballots and early votes in 95 of Iowas 99 counties including critical counties like Black Hawk, Cerro Gordo, Dallas, Des Moines, Dubuque, Johnson, Linn, Marion, Muscatine, Polk, Pottawattamie, Poweshiek, Sioux, Story, Wapello, Woodbury, and Winneshiek.
Republicans are even over-performing their share of ballots returned in 75 of 99 counties compared to 2004, the first time a Republican candidate carried Iowa in a presidential election since 1984, and are over-performing 2004 statewide by more than 3 points.
Suburban turnout is very high. Ankeny, Clive, and Urbandale precincts are seeing a lot of Election Day traffic. Those are Republican precincts.
NW Iowa counties which are hugely Republican but just never blew out turnout for McCain are voting in very large numbers. Those counties very fired up for Mitt.
Rural turnout high and were leading among rural Iowa voters.
Record low turnout in lefty Johnson County (Dems already voted all their base with early vote) proving our point about cannibalizing their high propensity voters.
Republican precincts are turning out today, like we want it to be. Dem precincts are lighter but expected lighter because theyve voted so many early.
Bay County, FL which went 71 28 for GW Bush in 04 is adding staff at voting locations because of overwhelming turnout.
Hialeah (FL), highest % Cubans & Cuban-Americans in America & regarded as most GOP b/c of vote history, reports lines around the block.
- 2 hour lines reported in Walton County, a county that voted 73.2% for George W. Bush in 2004 (21 points above the statewide percentage for Bush).
- Hour-plus lines reported in Escambia County, a county that voted 65.3% for George W. Bush in 2004.
- Long lines and Republicans outvoting Democrats by nearly two to one in traditional bellwether county Pasco (of which Jeb Bush famously said as goes Pasco, as goes Florida which George W. Bush wont by 10 points in 2004.)
- Shorter wait times reported in Miami-Dade County especially in Democratic precincts. Democrats usually win Miami-Dade by 10 pts or more. (Obama won it by 16 points in 2008.)
- LONG line is of Precinct 69 in Ft. Myers (Lee County). Breakdown of registered voters in that area is below: R: 1,314 D: 531
Over 90% of the vote is on the table for Election Day
Very high turnout in strong GOP towns of Pelham, Bedford, Merrimack, Atkinson, well surpassing 08 numbers. Estimates for Bedford have nearly 90% turning out, and its a 60/40 GOP Town.
Dems slightly behind or on par with 08 numbers. Concord not turning out, reports of small or nonexistent lines.
Bedford a top 5 GOP town that gave McCain 59% in 2008 -reporting 800+ voters per hour w/anticipated turnout of near 90%
About even in Washoe for AB/EV held them to where we needed to in Clark for the early vote.
Overall Clark County is seeming to be lower than anticipated and were seeing strong turnout in the rurals. This is what we need to play ball to win.
Absentee and early vote activity is over 17 percent higher in counties McCain won than counties Obama won, compared to 2008.
Turnout is higher in counties and media markets McCain carried in 08 than in counties and markets Obama carried.
There are 34 counties in Ohio that John McCain won where absentee and early vote turnout is over 120 percent of 2008. There are only 9 counties where Obama won four years ago where this is the case.
@HotlineJosh: Overall, early vote turnout OH up 2.44% in state. Down -4.1% in Obama/Kerry counties; up 14.39% in Bush/McCain counties.
GOP county turnout up
· Plain Dealer: Geauga election chief predicts 80 percent voter turnout today

Dem county turnout down
· WOUB: Athens County Election Officials: Morning Voter Turn Out Low

· Obama won Athens County with 67%
Coal Country is coming out stronger than in previous elections according to data weve received.
Final AB #s of returns as opposed to requests is going to come in at about R+8 which would put it 1 pt to the right of 2010. 8pts to the right of 2008. (a small but telling number)
Northern Bucks County is coming out strong for GOP (this is a bellweather)
Western PA is turning out in historic numbers for a Presidential remember this is coal country. They are not voting for Obama
Southcentral PA is turning out strong (traditional GOP stronghold)
In Stauntons Ward 4 in 2008, 1450 people voted. As of 1:30 p.m. today , 1223 people had voted. McCain won this precinct 54.8 44.3.
By noon 972 votes had been cast in Elmonts precinct 704 in Hanover County. In 2008, there were 1422 total votes cast in the precinct, which McCain won 68-30 in 2008.

Bluefield media market and Withville were seeing 2 hour wait lines this is coal country in VA. These are Romney voters.
Massive lines in Brookfield a high 60s GOP county over 200 in line at 6:15am and polls did not open until 7.
Were hearing reports of low turnout this morning in both Madison and Milwaukee.
Nationwide, Americans are willing to crawl over glass to vote against Obama!
OMG OMG OMG...stomach hurting...i just want to wake up tomorrow....i hate suspense.
Please someone tell me its going to be okkkkkayyyyyyyyyy.
Are we banning exit poll info from Drudge? In any event they were wrong in 2004, and voting continues in Ohio, etc. Republicans have to get home from work to vote. I won’t accept or worry about exits this year.
Anectodally, people keep telling me they have never voted but registered to vote Obama out. Let’s hope so.
Curious...I did notice Romney and Ann in blue today...first sign of reaching across the isle?????? hmmmmmm I think they know they won!!!! just a suspicion....
ok back to panic omg omg omgoshhhhhhh
With such long lines in GOP leaning FL panhandle I hope the media doesn’t pull a 2000 pre-mature call at 7pm, an hour before polls in the CST panhandle closes.
Knowing that the democrat party is surviving on cheating and lies, you might look at the higher absentee and early voting turnout as the dems targeted areas, to cut the “R” numbers down by posting fraudulent votes in greater numbers than in ‘08. Until hangings occur for those committing vote fraud treason, this democrat anti-American cheating will only grow more pernicious and more organized.
hahaha! I love your post! I feel that way, too, although these numbers are encouraging indeed. I keep thinking- less people voting for BHO, more for Republican ticket and indies breaking to RR= we win. How can it be otherwise? but then my stomach starts churning again. Ugh.
...I'm guessing Mitt doesn't own any red suits...
Im going to get a bottle of wine and start drinking. If it looks good I will stop, Thank the Lord, call my 75 year old mom and celebrate together....If we lose..I will just drink the rest of the bottle, think about going to work tomorrow and throw away my tv, computer and stop all mail for the next 4 years ;(
GOP turnout is great by all accounts. Everythings gonna be fine.
After tonight, my tapeworm will be entering the 12 Step program.
I don’t even want to think about losing!
Between the tweets today and FR, I can’t stop laughing! (good! bc I need it!)
One guy tweeted that if a person tweeted “EXIT POLLS!!!” and linked to a virus, he could pretty much bring down western civilization.
Skeeeter...you are the best!!
I will keep focused.
NO Cn nything
Ok FReepers your my guiding light...omgoshhhhhhhhhh
Stay thirsty my friend!! ha ha!!
I would take ripple at this point
