Can someone explain something re: Ohio... Are the tallies we’re seeing at present (O 57 R 42) the early voting numbers? If so, this is way below Obama’s expected strength in the early voting. Do I have this right?

Yes; but in fact, it is very likely even better than that.

Red counties (like the one around Cincinnati) are seeing near-all-time-record turnout. Have they been reported yet?

And elsewhere, the lines are so long in SW Virginia (coal country, and NOT near DC, so likely very red) that voting there has been extended.

Remember ALL the MSM and Fox have been invested in the "it's a TIE!" meme for so long; and that they have an interest in maintaining ratings.

Cheers!

The news is really good! I've been watching the map on google - and it sure looks like this is shaping up for a strong win by Romney.

Now I've got to drive home from work... can't wait to get there! LOL

Folks - this one's in the bag - Obama is TOAST!

We have a problem in this country in that the older voters are going Republican, but the younger voters (my generation) are going Democrat. Years of propaganda in pop culture, the media, and schools are ensuring this. What’s going to happen as the older generations die off? Combine the youth vote with the illegal aliens the Dems want to make legal for votes, and I could see this country moving to the left permanently. We’ll be like Europe with a liberal and more liberal running against each other.

I doubt those voters went for Romney

Then why did they not call the state for 0? FLA when big for the Dem Senator, yet they have not called it for O. So how about we stop the "Concern trolling"?

North Carolina just called for Romney!

Crud, I am listening to the radio instead of watching TV, and they claimed AP was calling NC for Romney, but now seem to have pulled back. < p>I hate when they do that!

HOW about people focus on the fact they STILL have not called PA?

PA currently has less than 5% of districts reported. Which is odd because the polls closed over an hour ago.

Prince William is only two suburbs away from DC, strictly bedroom, lots of hispanic. My suburb is 4 suburbs away. My precinct had five voting machines, up from the usual 3, and no lines. But another precinct had long lines from what I heard.

Then why did they not call the state for 0?

Because it's too close to call for either Romney or Obama. As I said, I doubt those democrats who voted for the new democrat Senator also voted for Romney. For me to post what Fox News just called is not "being concerned" or being a "troll".

Perhaps you are projecting? Are you concerned?

Oh I believe that Romney will carry LA, amd that NO is liberal, I was just amazed at the reasons those ignoramuses (ignorami?) were giving for voting for Obozo! Who in the world can believe that he’s improved the economy, except the parasites? How can anyone hold it against Romney for spending his own self-earned money and disregard Obozo spending ours (except the parasites, again)? It’s just unreal, the things they were attributing to Obozo.

From hillbuzz. Looks like Sissy Chrissie and the other conga line freaks are worried:

744pm CST — Chris Matthews is claiming that the Ohio secretary of state is too partisan. This is more laying the foundation for Obama to lose Ohio. Ken Blackwell, former Ohio Secretary of State is talking. He’s saying that Matthews is nuts.

Oh, and apparently F Chuck Todd has talked to insiders in both camps who expect Romney to take FL by less than 100,000 votes. Read more http://hillbuzz.org/

“We have a problem in this country in that the older voters are going Republican, but the younger voters (my generation) are going Democrat.”

An increasing number of young people aren’t “American” in any sense of the word; they are either imported directly from overseas, or the children of those that were. The comparison to Europe is apt; a shrinking percentage of young people are even “European”.

The Fox talking heads are contradicting the numbers being posted on their website. The Florida results were almost even with about 10 Republican trending counties yet to report any results. Is Fox intentionally trying to suppress the vote in Wisconsin, Iowa and Colorado?

15% has us in striking distance. 10% was what we were hoping for in order to get a comfortable win.

If it had been 25%+ like many of the polls were showing, Obama would definitely have won Ohio.

Personally, I think Obambi has a slight edge there, but it is very slight. The exit polls showing him winning by four look to me to be incorrect.

I’m more concerned about Republicans getting the Senate now. Akin, Mourdock, Brown all in big trouble. Even if Romney gets the Presidency, if Harry Reid is still running the Senate, how much would he be able to get done?
