Good news anecdote: Avondale, Cincinnati city precinct at 8:15am I was the 83rd person voting. This is 99.9% democrat area.
Avondale? Good Lord man did you go to the poll wearing a bullet proof vest? ;-)
Dude, I’m an Eastsider. :)
As in blood red Clermont county!
We shoot liberals out here for sport!
I live in the City of Richmond. It took me about an hour to vote, but the makeup of the line was much different than in 2008. First, the line overall was shorter. Second, there were more older white voters. African-Americans made up a good chunk of the line, but demographically, that is fairly in line with the precinct. But overall, there were more older white voters and fewer younger voters than in 2008.
By the time I left, the line had dwindled down. If Obama cannot run up the vote tally in the City of Richmond, he is toast.
