Skip to comments.Florida GOP memo: Democrats are 'cleaning our clock' [Statewide or Local?]
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."

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.
Plead for Florida verification ping.
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).
PBC is a big lib bastion. Nothing out of the ordinary happening there.
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.
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.
Republicans will be voting on Nov.6th in record numbers, the early vote will not overcome it.
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?
The local media in S Fl is hard left .
I suspect they made it up !
