Posted on 11/04/2008 3:54:25 PM PST by TonyInOhio
I'll be posting results and analysis on this thread as the Ohio returns come in. There are a couple of wild cards in play this year. First, our new early voting period means that some early results will be skewed, as it appears that a significant proportion of Democrats, especially African Americans, voted early. This will give an advantage to Democrats in the early numbers.
Secondly, a significant number of ACORN registrations were determined to be invalid (like 1/3) and so many of those registratnts, if the vote, will be give provisional ballots. These ballots will only be counted if the regular and early vote margin is too close to call.
Come add your Ohio stories and information. Check back for analysis of tallies as available.
Clearly, I need to put on my reading glasses. :) Sorry for the typos.
Who votes early and why? And, who works so they have to vote later?
This is FoxNews’ map. It’s live and continually updated.
You can view the whole map or click on a state.
Just move your cursor over a state, and it’s data is revealed.
I’ve got it open on my screen at all times.
Thanks...Good job. Please add me to your ping list please.
I’ll be monitoring this thread (and possibly adding to it) until we get a result.
Strong turn out in rural and suburbs and lower turn out today in cities. Perhaps because of early voting? I think McCain would win Ohio with actual - genuine - bonafide voters - but ACORN’s corruption of the system is a wild card.
Brunner is public enemy #1 in the Buckeye state. She’s going down in 2010!
Thank you, Tony!
I’d sign a petition for Brunner’s impeachment if I had one in front of me.
“Strong turn out in rural and suburbs and lower turn out today in cities. Perhaps because of early voting? I think McCain would win Ohio with actual - genuine - bonafide voters - but ACORNs corruption of the system is a wild card.”
I agree with you completely. The fraud vote is the thing that is hard to know how pervasive it is.
I voted early, have for the last 8 years. mostly because the issues are long reading and I like going over the ballot at the house. However, it’s obvious that the dems can’t be trusted, just like the soviets...when the communists got 100% of the vote.
time to get rid of early voting and only voting on election day...
Agree. No early voting and absentee only for those out of town. If it isn’t important enough for you to go vote on the Constitutionally mandated day, you shouldn’t have a voice.
Not too worried about Ohio.
I hope we pick up PA.
Many of us who vote by absentee method are disabled, or unable to wait in long lines for other health reasons. I know you concerns, but eliminating the absentee would have eliminated my ability to vote.
I’m a poll observer in cleveland. low turnout @ my precincts.
Glad to hear it. I hope PA comes too.
Don’t intend to make it tough for the disabled. Most of the absentee voters I know didn’t want the hassle of going today to vote. I’d certainly make a concession for disabled voters.
Awesome map. Thank you.
http://www.realclearpolitics.com has a great tally board, but it lists only percentages, as does Fox, CBS, CNN.
Anyone know of a nationwide tallyboard which lists raw votes — maybe even with drill down by state? (Probably hoping for too much.)
Your help is much appreciated. Cleveland's one of the ACORN-Fraud hotspots. Keep 'em honest!
The polls in Ohio have closed. The Secretary of State is awaiting data from our 88 counties.
In Columbus suburb of Dublin, a steady flow most of the day according to a poll worker I spoke with about an hour ago. More McCain buttons/hats etc... but expected in this town
JOHN MCCAIN 57498
BARACK OBAMA 148943
Lifelong Ohio resident, excuse me I have to go puke.
Yeah , come hold my hair back...
Cuyahoga county though...
Please let the rest of the state be sane.
Now, I know why I felt so freakin’ alienated. Maybe a move is in order...
They just called NH for Obama. I’m bummed. That probably means a possible NH-01 pickup is gone, too.
I thought conservatives respected perseverence and hard work. I stood on line...4 times to vote for Obama. Show me some love.
PS: where’s my pack of smokes and extra value meal they promised me?
Hmmm, not exactly close in a Dem stronghold.
I think it’s a bit early to be calling a state like NH for anyone at this point. But we’ll see.
For some comic relief, here is a hillarious video made by my friend Ted in Pittsburgh. He’s a talented musician. He put together a heavy metal song called “Ridin’ Dirty sung by his new lead singer, the “Reverend Jeremiah Wright”
It really gets good at about 3 min and 30 seconds.
That wasn’t the deal. You gave me $20, a pack of Marlboros and a Big Mac and said that Osama would solve all my problems if I stood there like an a-hole all day to vote for him 6 times.
Are you going back on your word?
I am so, so pissed over what happened to me today when voting.
I had to go provisional ballot.....
I called the BOL ans staated that I was just married and had to change my DL name to my married name. THe BOL said no problem, if your address did not change, don’t worry about it.
Went to vote (the poll workers were great, most had red blazers on) I had to do prov ballot.
In OH? A woodchuck can vote...
I am so upset.
I talked to the BOL tonight at the precint I vote at, she told me that someone gave me wrong info.
Hell just called PA
No, not a big Republican stronghold...but only a 56% turnout.
Nothing we could do with the welfare capital of America. If somehow. we could get to 40% in the county, I will dance a jig, then I’ll dance again cause that means we win the state.
Cuyahoga County is what it is now. Back in the days when George Voinovich saved this city, we all worked for a living and less than 10% of the population got paid not to work. Weekends were Saturday and Sunday.
Flash forward to today. 25 years of Democratic monopoly. Manufacturing long gone. tax rates through the roof, most of us still work, but now 25-30% of working aged abled bodied people are getting paid not to work. Weekends now start at 12:01AM Monday and lasts till midnight Sunday.The worst offenders are the ones who laugh at the suggestion to get a job.
How does this change. Leadership changes and people with the nerve to say enough is enough.
I am getting ready to throw up.
That one doesn’t work very well.
Try this one...
I just did.
