Early Voting in Ohio is 63-37 for Obama!
NBC Poll

Posted on 10/13/2012 8:28:23 AM PDT by hawaiian

Just saw this poll on TV and have seen this elsewhere. Why are these numbers so lopsided and why shouldn't we be very worried?

There’s not a single trend in Ohio that points toward Zero carrying that state.

Probably because 5 people voted for Obama and 3 people voted for Romney, and they rounded Obama up.

Look at the polls. Look at the crowds. Look at the momentum.

Romney will win Ohio.

Check the trash bins for “discarded” ballots. I also wonder how many of these voters plan to vote again on election day.

1) It's a NBC/Marist poll with a D+12 sample. Even MSNBC said this poll was junk.

2) Early voting, so far, the ballots returned are just 5% of the total estimate for the election.

We should be much more concerned that the military votes in every state be counted this time. Most were held up until after the election in ‘08, and should this be a close election, this corrupt practice could re-elect the Chicago thug.

There is not one thread of evidence to back this up... no ballots can be opened until election day and there are far more republican absentee ballots requested than dim ballots. All lies and subversion.

D+12 sample

Nice to see they are being forced to move their skew settings from absurd to ridiculous.

Is that voting for destruction, or just those counting?

A. It’s NBC. B. As LS has told us, if you count actual absentee ballot requests instead of taking a poll, it’s a very different story.

“Just saw this poll on TV”

I saw Luke Skywalker blow up the death star. That wasn’t real either. Everything they broadcast now is designed to make you behave as they want, not to inform you. They have not the slightest interest in telling you the truth, none. Period.

The decision of whether to grow the government or grow the economy may be decided in Ohio. I hope they come to grips with reality.

Three Ohio polls out the same day which one seems to be the outlier? Results as follows:


Ohio: Romney vs. Obama

Rasmussen Reports   Obama 48, Romney 47  Obama +1

NBC/WSJ/Marist      Obama 51, Romney 45  Obama +6

Gravis Marketing    Obama 45, Romney 46  Romney +1

According to stats released, the early vote so far is about 3% of voters, not 18%. Second, that poll over sampled dems way above even 2008 levels. Third, even if it were true, it doesn’t matter when someone votes - if all of obamas voters vote early he would win 100% of the early vote, but then on Election Day it would be 100% romney. People will vote either way, it’s just a matter of when

I think most of the military vote has already been prevented. The Obamilitary made a point of not getting ballots to the troops in time.

I don’t believe it. Ballots are not canvased until Election Day.

What those numbers tell us is that NBC got a bad sample, not that Romney has no chance.

Even the Obama campaign came out last week and said their numbers show them leading Ohio by “a couple of points”.

Since campaigns are notorious for inflating their numbers a bit when reporting them to the public, we can be sure that at worst, Ohio is a dead heat right now.

I am on record as saying Ohio is the state I am most concerned about, but I have ZERO concern about the results of this poll. In short, it is bogus.

Maybe most Republicans vote when they’re supposed to—on Election Day.

I have a young 22 yr coworker who has 2 friends on active duty who say no one in their companynhas received any absentee ballots. When I was in the Army I had my mom in NY forward my absentee ballot that i had sent to my home address. I cast my first Presidential vote for Ronaldus Magnus in 84.

My take: look at it this way in Ohio and nationally, for that matter: Romney has closed the gap to -1.7 points in Ohio, and from now to election day it will stay close. The skewed polls no longer serve their primary purpose, which is to make Republicans discouraged and stay away from the voting booth. To the degree that it looks like Obama will win (by winning the swing states), it makes the Dems complacent and not bother to show up. On the other hand, a small Romney lead would just energize the Dems to flock to the polls (although I think this will fail — most polls show that the Youth vote has fallen off, as has the Women’s vote, as far as enthusiasm measurement.)
