Skip to comments.OH Update: Jay Cost (This Should Just About Do It)
Posted on 11/02/2004 8:58:59 PM PST by LS
Bush nets 20,000 votes in Butler County, Cincinnati Suburb.
Bush nets 856 in NE Wayne County. Bush still up 1.7% in NE Ohio...waiting on more Cuyahoga.
Bush nets 1990 in Marion County, West Central
West Ohio...Bush nets 2,900 votes in Darke County.
Central Ohio...reports my Hawkeye, [JAY MEANS "BUCKEYE"] "Good news for Bush. Bush up significantly in the following counties: Clark +5 (big county) Greene +3 (big county) Ross +2.6 (med county) Down BIGTIME in Coshocton (9% down) but it's a really SMALL county. All of the other 16 counties in my group, Bush is doing better by about 1-3%. But these are smaller counties (but every vote counts). Maybe down by a fraction of a point in a couple small counties."
Bush holding his own in Dayton and Columbus, reports another Hawkeye [BUCKEYE]: "Bush's percentage increase is about 1%. With 60% in Franklin (Columbus), Bush is ahead 50-49.5 -- he lost it 48-47 in 2000. With 73% in Montgomery (Dayton), Kerry is ahead 50-49 -- in 2000, Gore won it by 50-48."
One word: Ohio!
PRESIDENT AND VICE-PRESIDENT
(With 1068 of 1458 precincts counted)
GEORGE W. BUSH/DICK CHENEY 173713
JOHN F. KERRY/JOHN EDWARDS 315986
I hope you're right. The tradesports investors agree; both OH and the whole enchilada are close to 85.
Do they use the chad voting system in this county?
Lockhart is claiming Dems are blowing the doors off in cayahoga county....
PRESIDENT AND VICE-PRESIDENT
Vote for 1 (With 1152 of 1458 precincts counted)
GEORGE W. BUSH/DICK CHENEY 179301
JOHN F. KERRY/JOHN EDWARDS 342637
Jeez. How long does it take some of these states' precincts to report?
Dems are blowing the doors off Cuyahoga-- almost 2 to 1.
Nonetheless, there is not enough unreported votes for them to topple Bush's lead. A Columbus Dispatch article quoted a dem operative saying they would win Cuyahoga by 300,000 over Bush. They are nowhere near that number.
There needs to be some very unusual precincts in the remainder of Cuyahoga-- more for kerry than 2 to 1. My understanding is that the more powerful precincts for Kerry have already turned in results, outlying precincts-- mroe for Bush-- are now turning in.
The fact that a Kerry team member moments ago said Athen country proves a Kerry win demonstrates their desperation. Athens county could not possibly turn the Bush advantage.
He also said that Clinton never had sex with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky. And he said it every day. For 8 months.
Tell Kerry he can be President of Cayahoga county and Jim McDermott can be his Sec. of State.
You are assuming that the reamining precincts in Cuyahoga County will reflect the ratio of the precints already reported. What if the remaining precincts are urban and Kerry gets 80% of the remaining votes in that county?
What worries me is that the 34% of precincts reported number has not changed in a long time. Which may mean that they are up to something.
It doesn't matter what he says anymore, unless he's trying to drum up the 'Presidency was stolen again' lunatics. Most likely he's just always in spin cycle and is incapable of turning it off.
Fox News calling Ohio for Bush!!!!!
It's all over except for the litigation. Now I can go to sleep. I'm burnt out.
