What in the heck is going on in Ohio? (VANITY)

Posted on 10/19/2012 9:21:26 AM PDT by AdamBomb

Everything is breaking our way. We have the momentum and a great candidate.

But something isn't right in Ohio. How in the world can zero be tied or up in this state?

Does anyone have any inside information or plausable theories?

If everybody knew that Obama was losing FL, VA, OH, and NC, then it’s writing off the election as a whole.

You really think the media is going to anoint Romney as the all but declared winner?

Thanks.

Are there a lot of unions in Ohio that are keeping their folks in line? I'm praying that once they go into the [presumed] privacy of the voting booth they vote for what's best for America, not their selfish interests.

Also, what has Kasich done to help?

Amen bro. When CNN is doing stories on the shortfall of Ds in early voting (HINT HINT OBAMA get your guys out there!!) you know they are screwed.

Ravi, one more interesting tidbit: my county chairman says they think they can actually WIN Montgomery Co., which we have consistently lost since 2000. We outregistered the Ds by 5000, which is usually our margin of loss. We also dropped 18,000 military ballots here!

Probably groups like the MOB and "The Ballot.org" getting free advertisement on local "news shows," like here in the K.C. area.

Contact them and demand equal Free Time for Romney!

We have FReepers on the ground in OH who have provided their perspectives, and they are well- informed and well-reasoned.

I’ll just say, if OH doesn’t come our way in the end, I will be shocked, dumbfounded.

We have a ground game there to end all ground games. People are working like there is no tomorrow to bring the results home when all the votes are counted. That matters.

In addition, look at it this way...don’t simply think of OH as a state that ought to mirror America’s choice at large. Think of OH as also being famous for BEING WITH THE WINNER ON ELECTION DAY. If it looks like Romney is going to win, OHIOANS who are open to voting either way (I know...who could possibly think of voting Obama again???) will WANT to vote with the winner, not the loser!

That factor is often overlooked. I for one refuse to believe that enough Ohioans are so GLUED TO OBAMA that they would vote for him against a portended Romney victory. I WON’T believe that until it is proven to me.

Well...I am happy to announce here that we have Idaho sewed up for the Romney/Ryan ticket.

After a lot of hard work, I believe we will achieve a 80%+ majority vote, well over the almost 70% we acheived in 2008...an off year for us up here.

True. It’s about the only state in the country that just doesn’t budget a point, regardless of what happens everywhere else.

It was really close in Ohio prior to the debates, and it still is!

To understand Ohio, you have to really look at Cuyahoga county. Cleveland has pretty much told the tale for that state in the past elections. They have lost over half of their registered voters since 2008 and 45% of those are Democrats. There’s some huge shifts like this that aren’t being accounted for by a lot of pollsters.

By the way, Mitt is up 1 now in New Hampshire according to left wing PPP.

Maryland and delware are pretty solid obama. I dont really see much change there. We do need either Ohio or PA. I would concentrate more heavily in Ohio. Much closer than PA.

I live down in Gallia Co. and the signs here favor Romney by 7:1 easy. At the RNC headquarters, they are constantly out of yard signs. At work the Obama supporters have already admitted defeat. I had a running joke with a woman that I was going to bring her tissues and chocolate the day after Obama lost. Lately she keeps reminding me that she likes dark chocolate adn tissues with moisturizer.

I truely believe it is over, they just don't want to admit it.

Casual observence of yard signs in SW Ohio are running 3 to 1 for Romney. This is quite different from 4 yrs ago when virtually every Buckeye (worthless nut) believed a black president would neatly make up for a century of slave guilt (Ohio was a major route to slave freedom).

No one talks about it of course, as it would be in poor form.

However, I've seen a number of "Fire 0bama" signs on lawns, something I never thought I would see on anyone's lawn.

Romney should pull out of Ohio and go to NY or CA-

according to some polls it is a lot closer there than anyone expected

he wins ONE of those and he wins

NATIONALIZE the election and stop with the single state by state focus. He needs a Republic Congress

It's smoke and mirrors about Ohio......

Save this spreadsheet of absentee ballots and early voting in the state. It is updated every couple of days and it shows that Obozo's numbers are way down and Mitt's are up over 2008 McCain numbers throughout the state.

It's usual for Dems to be ahead in early voting and absentee's but on Election Day, Ohio votes Republican in great numbers. Last time some of those people stayed home, this time enthusiasm and momentum are with Mitt.....and those people will not make that same mistake this time.

Having lived there and endured the deafening campaign ads for many years, I predict Ohio is Romney's.......

Remember that if the voters show an early win for Romney, Obozo won't be able to get his minions to stand in line and vote on election night out west....so they need a firewall to make that happen...Ohio is that firewall and expect the media to hold off calling it.

They need people to stay in line in to vote in Wisconsin and Iowa to get people to stay in line to vote in Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada etc. You get my meaning.....

IIRC, Ohio recently elected a Republican governor and legislature, and, in the deal, started its own mini-recovery. So things just are not as bad in Ohio as they are in much of the rest of the country. That might explain why Ohio hasn’t fallen to Romney.
Yet.

That means instead of getting 35% of the vote he might get as much as 40% of the vote.....he doesn't need to waste any money in either of those eastern block states!!!

Probably have 50,000-100,000 ballots-for-Obama in the ready, if they need it. Cleveland and Cincinatti, for sure, will have massive (D) vote counts....as always.

Obama has had the upper hand with his ad campaign, which may have held Ohio back. Here in NE Ohio, Romney's ad campaign has now been ramped up to carpet bombing dimensions as well. There is still little enthusiasm for obama around here outside the black enclaves, and even there it is not 2008 redux. I expect Ohio will break for Romney in good time.

Of course PG will go Obama. Baltimore will go Obama.
Charles will be split and the Eastern shore will go Romney.
Montgomery will probably go Obama

Now you sentence is more correct on any other presidential election year, but this time, Ohio belongs to Romney....I'm certain of it.

On the Wednesday after the election, you will be P!ssed after you see by how much it was......it's gonna be a lot bigger than the media wanted you to think......

I believe pollsters are having trouble accurately gauging the state of the race here, mostly because they are ignoring the real results from early and absentee voting. Remember that Obama's margin of victory in 2008 came entirely from early and absentee voting; McCain actually won among voters who voted on Election Day. Recently. a Lefty pollster (one of the PPP guys, I think) said that Romney was leading Obama by ten points amongst Ohioans who intend to vote on Election Day.

So, Obama has to rely on early and absentee voting to win, and he is dramatically underperforming his 2008 results. That points to a Romney win (by two to three points, IMO) if you are paying attention, but the pollsters are not - they still factor in a sizeable Democratic turnout advantage, based on 2008 results, but the data already available for this election show that advatange no longer exists.

In a nutshell, ignore the polls. :)

"On the Wednesday after the election, you will be P!ssed after you see by how much it was......it's gonna be a lot bigger than the media wanted you to think...... "

There's about a dozen "Romney/Ryan" signs in front of my house here, and I can't risk putting stickers on my vehicle because I do some work in the City of Cleveland, and don't want to have my vehicle vandalized (it CERTAINLY would be, in Cleveland, with stickers that don't say "OBAMA"). I won't be pissed at all if Romeny/Ryan wins by a minimal amount in Ohio, just so it out-distances the "found" votes to over-turn it.

No: It will go to Obama.

Unfortunately there are too many yellow dog Democrats and Obama look-alikes to save the state, but many counties will go to Romney. Unfortunately Steny Hoyer will stay also PG outnumbers us.Too many Obama voters there for the rest of us to dump Steny.

Re: Maryland:

Obama will carry Montgomery Co, Prince George's Co, Charles Co, Howard Co and Baltimore city. The rest of the state will go to Romney by huge margins. But it won't be enough to flip the outcome here. It never is. We have too many federal workers and the entitlement classes are numerous.
