CBS News affiliate calls 2012 presidential race for Barrack Obama weeks ahead of election
Breaking: Cleveland, Ohio TV Station WCPO Shows Election Night Results with Obama Win on its Website
Both articles have screen captures & links to the stations, themselves.
I think it’s clear they are running tests.
I do not trust US elections -- at all. I still vote, but I have no faith. I don't think they count 'em.
Cool! Why go through the bother and expense of an election?
Please don’t tell me that. I’m an early voter in Phoenix
area. I voted for Romney but my husband and daughter-in-law
voted for Obama. I’m crushed. I voted with a vengeance
though. I tried.
The CBS station in Phoenix is loaded with a bunch of crazy loons. It’s so bad that I can’t watch anything on that station.
It’s not our votes that count, but it’s who counts the votes.
I don’t think it’s a proof of a fix. I think they were running a test. The issue is not about fix or not. It’s what number and candidate they project as the winner, which in this case clearly is 0bama.
Cbs can fudge all the numbers they want. I’ll be watching Fox on election night.
WCPO-DT is an ABC affiliate in Cincinnati...
I’ve been an election official in Northern Virginia and we sure do count them. All the numbers have to match before we can wrap it up for the day. How many came to vote, how many electronic, how many write in, etc., etc. We count and re-count, and certify about five copies with six signatures between Rs and Ds.
Great! Now that it’s over with, the Obamaphone morons and
the twits who ask what Obama’s last name is can all stay home
in November. Pass the word to all libs you know.
I doubt a local yokel station would have the numbers even it were fixed.
Just testing and the tester is an OBOT.
So how can boxes of ballots show up in somebody’s trunk after it’s all done? How can somebody call up a precinct asking what the vote tally is and the official in charge, mistakenly thinking it’s the democrat leader on the phone, asks “How many do you need?” How can some precincts have over 100% voter turnout, or how can there be dozens of voters who show up as over 120 years old (or whatever the statistic was - I saw the headline tonight and didn’t ping myself on it)?
Bettina Viviano has said that (according to top dems) the huge amounts of money for Obama’s campaign weren’t primarily for ads, but to pay off the election cheats. Do we not have enough people observing, are they kept from doing anything about cheating if they see it, or what’s going on?
Of course, if crooks operate the tabulation software they can switch the votes around all they want, as long as the total number of people who voted ends up the same.
I think we do it differently here in MA.
How dare you deny Clearcase his hopelessness and misery. How heartless can you be? ;-)
I'm an election judge in Minnesota and we do the exact same procedure here. It may take hours but it all must be reconciled before we leave. Then before the closing, the results are posted on the door for anyone to see.
I understand people question the counting process, I even did and that is why I decided to become one of the "counters".
I'm certainly not saying vote fraud doesn't exist, but counting of the ballots that are in the box at the end of the evening is a very deliberate and careful process in my experience.
Indeed they do.
People of Cleveland: There is NO NEED TO VOTE. 0bama has already won. We repeat, your 0bamaphones are safe. There is NO NEED for you to vote.
Don’t worry! It was just a test. We can do this :)
I don’t claim to know how it’s done beyond my county in Northern Virginia. I just know that at the end of the day we do count and recount; we check continuously throughout the day on how many voters checked in and how many votes have been cast.
There is no question about plenty of corruption around the country. A good start to cleaning up all that corruption would be if good people like FReepers ran for local and state offices and eventually controlled committees that oversaw how elections in the various states are handled.
This happened a few years ago too.
IN BOTH CASES, consider this:
Just what it is that they are 'testing' ?
Have you ever heard of them 'testing' anything else, prior to broadcasting it ?
The 'excuse' of running a test just seems like something that went away with modern digital technology.
What were they testing ? Did they want to see if numbers they type in to a program that puts up a display on video work?
Isn't this 'technique' fairly well tested and reliable?
I was watching the football game, and they have things like THE SCORE, the DOWN, the TIME, all on screen during the game, and I haven't seen it not work yet.
mea culpa !!!!
Fact is election officials here put in 16 hour days for very little $$$. I have no idea how long the coming election day will be. Could be longer. But no one gets out of that room until everything is reconciled. At least within my experience, everyone takes their responsibilities VERY seriously, both D’s and R’s. I can’t speak to other jurisdictions.
No, it’s clearly time to freak out, and act like Alex Jones. /s
If there’s only one station, your paranoid argument might be right. Besides, even if there’s some conspiracy, why would they do it on the end side of the link? Wouldn’t it be much easier to do it on the machines side? Sorry, there are many things to be concerned, including the possibility of cheating, but this is not the proof.
I could buy a good conspiracy theory it if it were national, but not some podunk TV Station.
You really take this “news” seriously? You are kidding. Does your husband have a brain?
If they are just testing, why did they need to use obamma’s name. Could have used Charley Horse.
I hope you are drunk.
Once again, what is your point ?

And their results came from where?
You’re obviously not doing a good enough job converting your husband!
I bet they have a weather girl that has two observatories attached to her body..
Its See B.S.
wishful thinking on their part.
Here is my opinion (if you can call it that). I keep an eye on the DUmmies. They have been rantin & ravin about “ohhh they’re going to steal the election!” You know what they say about guilty dogs barking the loudest? (Mea culpa to my fine furry friends!) + all this dystopian bs about not wanting to have voter ID. Do I think THEY are going to steal the election? Duh. (Al Franken, for one)
If this information puts people on their toes & motivates them to vote, works for me!
It is much harder to cheat if the vote is overwhelmingly lopsided.
I is just the messenger. Please cross post to your usual haunts if you are so inclined.
I’m waiting for this bumper sticker:
V O T E
cancel out some dumbass
An "observation dome" is something you look out of, not what you look at!
Wow. I just let my husband copy my ballot. He scanned it to email to our son who is away at college. Daughter is coming home this week to do hers (with my help. Absentee voting at its finest. (Insert evil laugh?).
Point of order: WCPO-TV is an ABC affliate in Cincinnati.
The ABC affiliate in Cleveland is WEWS-TV.
Both are owned by Scripps-Howard broadcasting, one of the mostwid3ly respected broadcast group owners in the country.

One of the most effective things anyone can do in their area is to be a poll watcher. They are desperately needed. Just go to the party HQ and volunteer for it. They will train you and be glad of your help. You will be most effective in heavily Obama districts. It is harder for them to cheat when poll watchers are there.
I have done it for a couple of elections, and it is not hard but it takes a little fortitude. It is something that you can do, and it is very, very effective. If you are serious about turning this country around, take election day off and be a poll watcher.
