Democrats more than Republicans are getting their most loyal supporters to vote early, but with polls showing a close race among those who have voted so far, concerns are being raised about a GOP tsunami on the actual Election Day, next Tuesday.
According to a GOP analysis of early voting and absentee ballot requests provided to Secrets, the Democrats are turning out their most reliable, or so-called "high propensity voters" than Republicans, leaving fewer for Election Day. The GOP is pushing weaker supporters to vote early, expecting high enthusiasm to drive their regular supporters to the polls next week.

I am one of those “some”
all the nervous nancys need to see this thread
I never ever vote early, I also wait till day of election so my ballot doesn’t mysteriously disappear.
These are the key stats in the article nervous nancy’s ought to look at:
“Democrats are cannibalizing their high-propensity voters in advance of election day to get stories that they are winning,” said a GOP analyst. “But in effect they are stealing from Peter, or Election Day, to pay Paul, or early voting.”
For example, in Ohio, the Democrats have turned out 43 percent of the most loyal supporters to vote, compared to just 27 percent of the GOP. In Iowa, the difference is 43 percent to 29 percent.
“Republicans will have more reliable voters available on Election Day and are spending our efforts turning out low propensity voters in the absentee and early voting periods,” added the analysis.
Even with the difference in turnout of loyal supporters, Gallup finds that among early voters, Romney is beating Obama 52 percent to 45 percent, though some state totals show an Obama advantage. Plus in states like North Carolina, Colorado and Iowa, the GOP has seen huge requests for last-minute absentee ballots this month.
I know a lot of people are waiting until election day to vote so that Obama will get overconfident and think he has already won but I think he’s going to be in for a very ugly surprise of unprecedented magnitude.
It’s going to be a hurricane, but it’s not going to come up the coast and turn Left.
It’s going to come up inland, maintain speed, and turn Right taking the Pres__nt Resident HCR with it.
I hope so and I think we should all be there to show him the front door when he looses and hopefully him and Michelle won’t be taking everything out of the white house with them when they leave like the Clinton’s did.
I’ve become an early voter in presidential elections over the past two cycles. I don’t want to chance dying before election day and end up voting democrat
Vote early! Vote often!
My prediction. You can't run a left of center flip flopper and win the Presidency.
You are a legend in your own mind.
Wouldn’t do any good. They like being Debbie Downers.
When the other guy is an anti-American commie bent on destroying the economy, I think a ham sandwich has a good shot.
