Then look at absentee requests compared to 2008:
2008: 15400 total requests; Dems: 5500 requests; Repubs: 4000 requests;
2012: 7200 total requests thus far; Dems: 2269 requests; Repubs: 2373 requests;
In 2008, Obama received 52.7% in Wood (34,285 votes). McCain received 45.6% (29,648 votes). Statewide Obama received 51.5% and McCain 46.9%. So Wood county definitely can be considered a swing county, leading indicator and something else to keep an eye on.
Maybe O and Mooch looking for a Hawaiian home post presidency makes sense....
ping. swing away.
TY! All this encouraging information FROM THE GROUND—not from polls and the MSM. I appreciate it!
Wood County swings because it is home to Bowling Green State University, the faculty of which is as left as Berkeley, and the mush-brained students who live on campus. Now that that Hopenchange is dead and buried, I suspect many of the utes will sleep in.
Here’s to that.
Keep up the good work.
If this plays out across the nation county by county... BINGO! Buh Bye Bambi!
Has anyone heard anything about Maine-2 and Nebraska-2 ?
According to UC Boulder Romney can win ME-2 , actually will win, and I am assuming that NE-2 will go Romney (went 0 in 2008).
