Skip to comments.Obama fades in Ohio
Posted on 10/06/2012 3:21:22 PM PDT by libh8er
A Rasmussen post-presidential debate poll in Ohio shows Mitt Romney has pulled ahead of Barack Obama in the battleground state among those who say they are certain to vote. The poll shows Romney ahead 51 percent to 48 percent in this critical group.
The Rasmussen Poll also suggests Romneys strong debate performance has halted Obamas momentum among all respondents with a statistical tie of 50 percent for Obama verses 49 percent for Romney.
Among the 83-percent of Ohioans who have already made up their minds on who they will vote for, Romney leads Obama 52 percent to 48 percent, while the 17-percent of respondents who say they could still change their minds favor Obama by a two-to-one margin.
In more good news for the Romney campaign, Thursday, The Examiner reported that the GOP has narrowed the difference between Democrats and Republicans in absentee ballot requests used for early voting in Ohio, suggesting Romney is doing better in the state than some earlier polls suggest.
Quoting The Examiner: While in 2008, 33 percent of the 1,158,301 absentee ballots went to Democrats and just 19 percent to registered Republicans, a 14-point gap, this year 29 percent are being requested by Democrats and 24 percent by Republicans, a five-point gap.

Cut my eyes Mick.
Zero yard signs or bumper stickers for either candidate in my corner of San Jose. In fact, nobody is running for any office, state, local, or federal, according to the signs.
Personally, I have an empty chair on my balcony.
When only a Presidential "Face Palm" will suffice.
The official “unemployment rate” is at 7.2%, putting Ohio at 20th “best” among the fifty States and doing a little better than all the surrounding States. But the mood is far from good and based on the fact that every state wide office, both houses of the legislature, the Congressional delegation, and one out of our two Senators are held by or are majority Republican I’d be very surprised in Obama takes Ohio this year.
You just aren’t going to see many signs out anywhere, IMO. Too many risks to do so. Yard signs pulled up, or trashed, houses vandalized that have R/R signs out. Autos with bumper stickers keyed or worse. Too polarized a society nowadays, a pre-Civil war mentality. Just go out and vote. Signs aren’t where it’s at, ballots are.
The 0-phone strategy worked perfectly for the recipients. They got something for nothing. After receiving the phones and being wholly embarrassed by the shouting freak woman, they came to the realization that there’s no need for them to hold up their end of the ‘bargain’ by supporting the Marxist. The phone’s already theirs and they know deep down that after the election Zero will have no motivation whatsoever to give anyone anything. He won’t be seeking elective office any more. So the 0-phone recipients know that the largess won’t keep flowing their way.
It’s the same as pre-paying a day laborer to do some work for you. They get the money up front and they know it’s a one-time proposition, so guess what? They don’t show up and do the job. (No, this isn’t something I speak of from experience. Just an example.)

Mostly bad, but depends on the area. Dayton has lost 5 Fortune 500 companies in abou six years; big cities such as Akron and Toledo have been slammed. But the corridor south of Dayton and north of Cincy is growing like crazy. Theis is solid red Warren Co., plus parts of Hamilton Co.
PPP is a joke, and not just because they OVERSAMPLE Dems: their questions are totally directed toward Dems. I could give specifics but it’s enough to say you should add several points to the R in any PPP poll.
Very few signs in Dayton for either candidate, and I think both campaigns have downplayed signs. Still, if you look at houses having signs for other GOP candidates, it’s a heavy R advantage-—assuming they don’t ticket split.
We should remember, too, that anyone can sign up at examiner.com and write anything. Most of the people at examiner.com are thieves who steal articles from everywhere on the Internet and present them as their own. Examiner.com is run by a thieving leftist pig out of San Francisco who needs to be hanged from the nearest lamppost. I’d do it myself, but most of my cash that I might use to fly to SF is going toward taxes to support 600-ton welfare mommas, fat-ass useless teachers, SEIU pigs, their children, their grandchildren and their friggin’ dogs.
This crap needs to end.
Per the relatives in the Springfield area, the economy there isn’t any better than the rest of the country. The thing is that Ohio has been leaning Left ever since the KKK came into beng and it has been the home of many a union factory (many now closed) so it’s a bit tough to break through to the sane part of the folks’ brains. From the relatives attitudes, instead of apathy towards the democrat, they are eager to vote the Repub this time. I expect there is more Dim apathy and more Repub excitement than we are aware of. I would guess Ohio goes Romney by 4-6%
