Folks hang up and they are NOT accounted for in poll.
Assumptions of crowds from 2008 crawling over broken glass are used. These are invalid.
Conservatives will be the ones crawling over broken glass on Nov 6. The models are just wrong.
R/R is up by 5 in my estimation in Ohio.
I am in Cincy and have NOT had one knock on my door, no Dem phone calls, and I’m likely the only conservative for blocks in my neighborhood. No, there are not as many signs as in 2008; there is no “buzz” in the air.
Have you been contacted by Romney/Ryan?
I live in Warren County and I see much less enthusiasm on both sides. We have some signs here, but it’s nowhere near the level it was in 2004 for Bush or 2008 for Palin. And this is 70% GOP area. Of course it’s Romney so we won’t get near the broken glass GOP effect. But I can easily see that Obama has the same issue.
So it’s probably going to come down to who has the enthusiasm edge. Kind of up in the air right now, but if I had to bet my own money, I’d put it on Romney. But I’d hedge.
CRR, I’m in Cincy too. I’ve had Romney volunteers knock on my door and call me numerous times to invite me to Ryan and Romney appearances. Romney signs in my East side neighborhood easily out number Obama signs 20 to 1. The only “competitive” street sign competition I’ve evn seen is driving up Hosbrook Road in Madeira.
I am in the demokrat republik of Maryland and I too have noticed a big LACK of yard signs and bumper stickers
A few lonely obama signs sit in the yard of a habitat for humanity house, and a shiny new prius with an obama bumper sticker did force me out of the turn lane in traffic this week
In 08 these people were everywhere
