Florida GOP memo: Democrats are 'cleaning our clock' [Statewide or Local?]
wptv.com ^ | October 30, 2012 | Evan Axelbank

Posted on 11/01/2012 4:09:00 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

A memo obtained by NewsChannel 5's Evan Axelbank, from an adviser to a Florida GOP campaign, says that the Democratic turnout effort is "cleaning our clock."

The memo says, "The early and absentee turnout is starting to look more troubling."

It also says, "Even if Romney wins the state (likely based on polls), the turnout deficit in PBC will affect our local races."

Can anyone verify whether this is accurate? Is it limited to Palm Beach only? From what I've heard, the GOP has a good effort.

RIIIIIIIIIIGHT. Nothing but a bunch of “concern trolls”. November 6 will be a Chik-Fil-A landslide for ROmney.

The MSM is trying to depress GOP turnout Tuesday!

They’re in the tank for the Democrats and you will NEVER hear them report the Democrats aren’t doing well.

Only Republicans “get their clocks cleaned.” Get it?

Their bias is pretty extreme and they don’t bother hiding it.

Looks like a fire up the team memo. Nothing to get worried about.

Sounds like a local concern. The memo suggests that the GOP should not rely on Romney coattails for local races in Southern Florida.

It bogus. No source and nothing to suggest someone didn’t just type this up on their PC and pass it off. Another “National Guard” memo.

Some early vote net GOP gains from 2008 (swing and non-swing): CO (+5), FL (+11), LA (+16), ME (-1), NC (+3), NV (+13), WV (+6).

In the story, they have one GOP’er saying that it’s not a problem. We are broken glass Republicans, meaning we will crawl over broken glass to vote on election day. Pretty good line. This seems to be one county in Florida. Nothing to get too upset over. It’s ancedotal.

I guess the question I have is how did a news station get hold of this memo? Seems a bit fishy. I can’t believe anyone connect to the party would “leak” it unless they wanted this info out there, i.e., head fake. Or there is a mole in the party org.

One other oddity. PBC is one of the more left wing counties in FL. It’s home of the dangling chad. There aren’t that many GOPers there, so curious the “official” would pick this county as the one where down ballot candidates would be hurt. Something doesn’t add up.

I'm up in North Palm Beach County. Yes there are a lot of sickening lying ads against West, Bogenoff (State Senator), Melanie Peterson(Tea Party) but people love West. My wife waited on line for TWO hours the other day in Jupiter and all she talked to were passionately voting for Romney. Hopefully there's down-ticket swing.

As far as down-county, it's close - not sure if idiots will look at the truth or not. Some GREAT news is Debbie-Mayonnaisehead is getting worried about Kathy Harrington closing in. She thought it was in the bag.

As far as Connie Mack is concerned, one admin where I work, who's boss is running for Rep Councilwoman said Mack hasn't done ANYTHING - totally thought people would give it to him on Daddy's reputation. Stupid.

Rrriiigghhttt....

Wait times at the early voting location in my heavily Republican part of Hillsborough County have been 45-60 minutes or more all day, every day since it opened Saturday.

In the more Democrat section of East Tampa, no wait at all.

This is interesting. Palm Be Co like Broward does not list party affiliation on their early voting totals on their websites. I cannot speak for PBC but I have visited a few early voting sites during busy times and there was no exit polling taking place.

Additionally, Dems in FL are targeting high propensity voters for early voting. The Romney campaign has gone after low propensity voters since the day that you were permitted to order absentee ballots. All the voter had to do was say yes and we did everything we could to place that absentee ballot application in their hands.

This means nothing. Is this based on some anecdotal noise about seeing lines of entitlement sheep at the polls or actual data? Besides... it`s PBC.

We the Conservative/GOP/Patriot movement have enough numbers to control our destiny on Tuesday if we want it badly enough. Across the country, it all comes down to that. There are NO EXCUSES this time around.

I look at these doom and gloom polls two ways:

1) Are any of these polls going to change how you vote? NO!

2) Avoid stressing over any polls until after the election. Have we not yet learned how the media plays us like fools time and time again?

Exactly ,so much concern !
My brother and sister both voted on central FL .
Both noted there were no Accorn crowd anyway and the voters were all
Older and white unlike 2008 .
Also ,A group of blacks supposedly from
Miami tried to vote and were told to go back to Miami !
The new fl voting laws and cleaned up voting rolls will give it to
Romney !

I live and work in Tampa Bay area. I drive a lot. I see many more Romney signs that O-butt-o. Yesterday I decided to vote early, to avoid Tuesday crush. Went to my usual polling place in South Tampa. Was very surprised by the line. Didn't have time to wait. Obvious voter enthusiasm and intensity. Can't imagine it's for the Magic Negro.

In Jupiter, Florida, the Obamabots are hardly coming to the Jupiter polling place any more to urge voters to vote for the failed POTUS Obama!!! On the voting line, only older folks, young professionals, younger moms & pops, middle aged folks. No Blacks, no college kids in sight. Cars going by on Military Trail beeping non-stop with thumbs uop for Romney/Ryan. Allen West will literally devastate Patrick Murphy in FL CD18........Romney/Ryan will carry Florida big time!!! Obama is toast, burnt toast in Florida!!!

"... said Mack hasn't done ANYTHING - totally thought people would give it to him on Daddy's reputation. Stupid."


Thanks for posting.

I'm a relatively new resident. My Hillsborough absentee ballot was a total vote against dems and candidates who indicated a sense of entitlement. With incumbent dem nelson, I hoped that mack was more along the tea party lines. Seeing that he's lagging and not reading much about his activities, I was concerned.

If mack has that sense of entitlement (daddy's coattails?) then it's just as well that he loses (as long as the r's still get control of the Senate) - I expect he would be more of the gop-e ilk.

We need to keep the TEA Party grassroots growing deeper and spreading wider so that it becomes the culture and get rid of all the biggov, entitled elitists.

... and if it be Your Will, Lord, please turn the U.S.A. back to You.
In Jesus' name I pray. AMEN!

PBC is heavily Dem is because of Boca (Jewish) and its faiirly large black population. The island of PB is 60-40 R to D. Delray is mostly R. Jupiter is mostly R.

FWIW, early voted yesterday in Sarasota. Lines were long and it took about 45 minutes for the entire process. Sarasota, in the past, has been strong Republican. That has changed over the years as a lot of Californians and NE liberals moved to the market. Even so, the line, at least when I was there, was booing the O'bots who were trying to work the crowd.

Who knows what's really happening, but if we can keep it close in socialist SE Florida, then the rest will take care of itself.

We are in SW Florida and there has been a 3 hour wait since early voting started on Sunday. We waited 3+ hours on Tuesday and the deputy said that from 7AM to 7PM there has been this kind of wait. That they have lines waiting when the doors open and have to put a deputy at the end of the line at 7PM to stop the flow coming in.

While we were there an Obama Van came around every hour delivering and picking up voters and there was a total 4 folks dropped off and picked up. It was interesting because the folks in our area of Florida are the SS/Latino Crowd and the Obama voters were under 25 sporting locks, baggy pants and bling.

FYI

According to Freedom Works Scoreboard, Connie Mack has a terrific conservative voting record.....actually higher than Allen West!

I met Mack when came to Sarasota last week. He countered every lie that Nelson had made in their debate with facts. I was impressed. Don’t believe the liberal media or Nelson’s negative ads.

Mack is a true conservative and the best choice for FL! He & Marco would be a great team for FL!
