UPDATE FROM OHIO (More good news)
self | 11/4/08 | LS

Posted on 11/04/2008 1:31:19 PM PST by LS

So far:

Turnout at GOP precincts has been unbelievable.

In Darke Couty, which went 2:1 for Bush in 04, they are looking at 80% turnout and thousands of additional R voters.

In Allen County, heavy R turnout.

In Montgomery County (Kerry won by 2% in 04), the west side (D) precincts are coming in under 20% by mid-afternoon!!! Our R precincts are outpacing them 2:1.

Reports of other red counties are at tremendously high levels.

BASED ON THIS . . . .

wait for it

not only would I "call" Ohio now for McCain, but it's entirely likely he could end up being a sizeable statewide victory margin. I won't tell you yet what it could be, but it portends amazing things for the rest of the states.

Sounds great....but I’m still very cautious. Now is the time to pour it on even more! Let’s make this OUR landslide!

I would say it’s premature to “call” Ohio for McCain (GO VOTE OHIO!!), I do believe McCain will win it.

That said, low Dem turnout seems to be happening across the state. I think that’s a sign of big early voting.

They cried “Wolf” once too often. We just aren’t buying into their demoralizing tactics anymore.

Like they pulled in Florida in 2000, they have tried this again with 400% more twisted/warped polls than ever before 1 month before the election.

We are only more motivated and determined to stop this scum from becoming President. I hope this happens in the worst way!

Indeed. Seems a good amount of that is being reported around FR today. Either there was a big sale on rose colored glasses at Wal-mart yesterday or there may be something much bigger happening.

McCain was just on Hannity Radio saying something like “It’s obvious that the media polls have been way off!”

I don’t think ANYBODY predicted the HUGE R Turnouts we have been seeing, ESPECIALY in Rural America!

I just read several articles on columbusdispatch.com and the dem turnout is low. They expected long lines, but it’s just not happening.

Also:

a) a lot of '04 Dem turnout was driven by massive BDS not transferable to McCain (couldn't call him a "chicken hawk" could they?)

b) media bias may have bitten the Dems in the behind by promoting complacent low-voter turn-out for them while enraging the Republican base.

Guess we'll know later tonight or tomorrow.

As much as I would love to believe that only 20% of the Ds had turned as of the time of your information, I’m guessing that’s because of heavy reliance on early voting (don’t know if you have any numbers on early voting for these same areas?). BUT, it’s a very good sign that Rs are turning out heavily.

Hopefully all the one-sided media attention for Obama has, over the long haul, generated massive R turnout from frustrated viewers.

Hi LS,

It’s been almost a decade I’ve known you through FR, and seeing you are so certain you’re putting this out this early, I’m taking your word for it and am getting excited about it right now.

Also, everyone could check out LS’s new book, 48 Liberal Lies About American History: (That You Probably Learned in School), I gave it to two younger cousins just entering freshman year of undergrad, I hope it gives them a better perspective on their uni educations.

For some perspective for Freepers who don’t know much about Ohio’s county by County breakdown:

25 key counties to watch tonight
By CHARLES MAHTESIAN | 11/4/08 2:24 PM EST

9) Franklin County, Ohio: Ohio’s second-largest population hub after Cleveland’s Cuyahoga County, Columbus’ Franklin County is trending increasingly Democratic. Since Cincinnati’s Hamilton County is no longer a reliable Republican bulwark, a big Obama win here would go a long way toward sinking McCain’s chances in the state.

10) Butler County, Ohio: Cincinnati’s suburban Butler County was a key part of the exurban and micropolitan firewall that enabled Bush to carry Ohio in 2004. The 54,000-vote margin it delivered to Bush was his largest in any county in the state.

11) Mahoning County, Ohio: As a vote source, Youngstown’s Mahoning County pales next to Cuyahoga County, Franklin County, Dayton’s Montgomery County, Akron’s Summit County or Toledo’s Lucas County. But the results here will be revealing because if Obama is running below 60 percent in this industrial area, that’s a bad sign for him — and it probably signals he’s struggling in western Pennsylvania, too.

This what I have predicted on this site for the past three weeks-that the Republican turnout would be the largest in Republican history. I truly understand the charisma of Sarah Palin. Palin power is an overwehelming force. The people who support Sara love her without qualification. They would ‘walk through a brick wall for her or ‘take a bullet for her.’ If John McCain becomes President it will because of Sarah Palin. There is no way that he could have caused this record turnout if he had put ‘another boring white guy on the ticket’.
