Skip to comments.Shock to Obama Camp: Gallup finds early voters favor Romney 52-47%

The Gallup Organization has some very bad news for the Obama camp, but is being discreet about it, entombing it at the bottom of an article innocuously titled "In U.S., 15% of Registered Voters Have Already Cast Ballots."
Given the apparent intimidation of Gallup by the Department of Justice, it is only prudent to once again bury the lede. But that does not make the news any less painful for Obamaites, who have been counting on a supposed ground game and early voting advantage.
John Nolte of Breitbart has no such compunctions about delivering the bad news from Gallup:
Romney currently leads Obama 52% to 45% among voters who say they have already cast their ballots. However, that is comparable to Romney's 51% to 46% lead among all likely voters in Gallup's Oct. 22-28 tracking polling. At the same time, the race is tied at 49% among those who have not yet voted but still intend to vote early, suggesting these voters could cause the race to tighten. However, Romney leads 51% to 45% among the much larger group of voters who plan to vote on Election Day, Nov. 6. When Gallup says early voters don't seem to be swaying the election, presumably what they means is that because Romney is ahead by five points nationally, an early voting advantage of seven-points isn't going to "sway the election."
Romney's early voting lead in Gallup may not jive with the CorruptMedia narrative, but it does with actual early vote totals that have been released and show Romney's early vote totals either beating Obama in swing states such as Colorado and Florida or chipping away at the President's advantage in the others.

I don’t think your dream is too far off. It is going to be a blow-out - but, by that much? Maybe just not much!
What did Obama’s DOJ do to to Gallup or whomever this is?
That is a great map. And accurate. Blue areas are:
minorities, liberals, academics, union thugs, and welfare queens. Yup. That’s about it.
This article raised some real concerns for me about percentages of voters in certain areas of Ohio, who have already voted. The author throws out the numbers that seem too high, as if they must be wrong. I wouldn’t be so hasty, unless someone can prove that these ballots did not come from legally registered voters, who are still living and breathing.
In Philadelphia in 2000, Al Gore garnered about 100% of the registered voters, George Bush got 19% of the registered voters. That makes the total about 120% of the registered voters voted in Philadelphia. More votes were cast in Philadelphia in that election than there were people of legal voting age in Philadelphia.
Dems are not worried. Their voters vote both early AND often.
It’s amazing. For this article, I’ve seen 52-45, 52-46 and now 52-47 in the headline.
But if you read the actual numbers from Gallup, it’s 52-46. Some people must need reading glasses.
Der’s dat awful number 47 again!
Dang, was Romney right, or what?
