KEYWORDS: obama; romney; romney2012; ryan
9/7/12: Dems-346,000 Repubs-126,000 (approximate) 9/2/08: Dems-396,000 Repubs-91,000 (approximate)

My takeaway is in 4 years, dem registration has dropped 50,000 and republican registration has increased 35,000. This is in Cleveland. I've found it difficult to pull up registration figures for Columbus and Cincy but I'll try. I know overall Ohio does not keep tabs of party affiliation in registration statewide so I was trying to go to individual counties to find that info. Very good news indeed.

I grew up in this area.
the truth is there haven’t been jobs there since 74.
I fled in 77.

Now its mostly old timers on old union pensions.
I hate to say it because many of them are friends and family, but they won’t last forever, and then things will flop.

I grew up in Youngstown where Joe and Obozo are working the unions hard.

The town has been dead for 35 years

Funny thing is, the only union shop I ever worked in was in Tx, a “Right to work” state.

Go figure!

Is the mob unionized?

I think the natural progression is in the other direction.

That is, rather than mob's unionizing... it's more natural for unions to mob-ize.

I was just wondering whether Biden cuddling up to mob which had a great presence in Youngstown. IIRC James Traficant, who was imprisoned for bribery and racketeering, was from Youngstown and had ties to some unions.

I wish Common Tator were still with us. He always had great commentary on Ohio elections.

Nice job on your digging there. That’s good work.

These HUGE turnarounds from 2008 in RAT vs GOP registrations are not turning up in the polls but were made manifest in the 2010 elections, shocking everyone.

2 Corrupt organizations run Cleveland/Cuyahoga County:The Mafia, and Unions.

With all the losses of manufacturing here, what's left are inner-city tribal parasites, and blue collar un-employed former Union workers. They still vote (D) to keep their handouts coming, and if you consider the "ACORN Effect" (i.e., multiple voters, dead voters, and illegal voters), you can probably reduce the number of REAL living, breathing D's by 10's of thousands, I'm sure.

There is NO productive life in Cleveland, itself, but the suburbs are doing okay. The suburbs are over-whelmingly non-Union R's, except for the Unionized State, City, and Local Union Members, the bulk of which are Teachers.

Cuyahoga County includes a whole passle of suburbs around Cleveland. The demographics are improving as the inner ring suburbs are gentrifying somewhat and the next ring out are holding their own pretty well. Cleveland itself is still shrinking but there has been a burst of growth in downtown residents, who are middle to upper income.

Cleveland and Cuyahoga have been quietly showing signs of coming back to life, so a relative increase in republican registration is certainly news but not too surprising.

The unions are what they are. There has been no Mafia activity in Cleveland in years. The days of "Kill the Irishman" are long gone. Even the prosecutions of the Dimora & Russo scumbags have revealed no mob connections.

I’ve been expecting this ever since ACORN got put out of business. It’s harder now that they can’t get away with massive voter fraud so easily.

"Even the prosecutions of the Dimora & Russo scumbags have revealed no mob connections"

No Mafia in Cleveland?

Do you remember Eddie DeBartolo, Carmen Policy, and their recent involvement with the Cleveland Browns?

Yeah; there's "no such thing as The Mafia".

LOL

Those guys were corrupt but hardly "Cleveland Mafia". Just because you have a corrupt official or insider who is Italian doesn't mean they are Mafia. Policy came from San Francisco, now again lives in California for many years, raising grapes. DeBartolo was a fairly crooked real estate guy, owner of the 49ers, not the Browns, and has never played anything serious in Cleveland despite starting up in Youngstown. It's been a good twenty years since anyone has heard about him around these parts.

"Recent involvement" would be a really misleading description.

IDK where you are getting your "information" but it is fragmented dated and inaccurate. Cleveland has its own home grown corruption like any city but the Mafia was pretty well wiped out here a long time ago.Again, The FBI's most thorough investigation and prosecution of corruption in Cuyahoga, lasting several years and hundreds of indictments, yielded zero indication of mob involvement. Sorry. I know it's more exciting your way, but it just ain't the TV Chicago-town around here any more.

Do a little more research on the Youngstown Mafia, Carmen Policy (as a Defense Attorney in the Danny Green Trial), and the connections from Cleveland all the way to Baltimore (Tony Delesandro; aka, Nancy Pelosi's father).

You need to do your homework.

Carmen Policy (as a Defense Attorney in the Danny Green Trial),

(Sigh). Thank you for making my point that the Mafia has had no presence in Cleveland for many years. Danny Greene was blown up in 1977. Now please stop wasting all of our time with your peculiar personal Mafia fetish.

I don't have a peculiar "Mafia Fetish"; but I do have personal knowledge of the History, activity, associations, etc. which you have NO CLUE about.

I'm not saying more, because I don't need the attention.

End of story.
