A fun bit of polling from Suffolk of towns and counties that usually get their presidential picks right, and get them near the right percentage:

Looking good!

And it looks even better when you consider how many Ohio Democrat early votes were actually for Romney!

Hee, hee, hee...

Guten Abend, Herr Blucher!

I saw a poll somewhere that said 99% of Republicans are voting for Romney and only 90-95% of Democrats are voting for Obama.

This situation (for the Democrats, anyway) only gets magnified in Ohio. What with Obama’s war on coal and the Catholics up in arms about the healthcare mandate? Same thing in PA.

A lot of coal miners are registered Democrats, as are many Catholics. Few of them will bother to change their registration before they vote. They’ll be Democrats voting for Romney — like Reagan democrats in ‘80 and ‘84.

Make sense?

Or he thinks bad "wether" is coming again soon. ;-)

In Ohio the only way you can change your registration is by requesting the other party's ballot in the primary. If you skip the primary you can't change your registration.

Even better! Then all of them will be registered Democrats voting for Romney. I suspect there will be a lot of them. So we have to factor that in to Karl Rove’s numbers, which makes them even better for Romney!

yes it does. I think the “November surprise” will be the number of considerate democrats that vote for Romney. It will probably the shake that provides the landslide.

Exactly. And I hope Chicago is counting every Democrat early vote as another vote in their pocket.

They just can't fathom the concept that their voters from 2008 are changing sides, that their coalition of voting blocs has been irreparably damaged by their own shortsighted policies.

This just doesn't compute with them. Like they still can't digest the fact that yes, Benghazi actually was terrorism. It goes against their myopic worldview.

If so, won't they be in for a surprise!?

I'm waiting to see them also...I think it will be a good indicator of how things go. Four years ago they went for Obama 15-6.

As I recall, for the last quite a while, Dixville Notch has gone for the ‘rats and turned out to be a lot like “Gertie’s Notch,” it stinks.....if you get my drift. I hope they clean up their act and do the right thing this Midnight.
