    A Cincinnati news agency is (is reporting) that three Ohio voters have been charged with voting improperly. One is a nun who voted in place of her nun friend who died before the election. The nun is pleading guilty to the charge and is resigning her position. Another, Melowese Richardson, 58, a long-time poll worker and (according to today’s broadcast on this story by Fox News) loyal Obama supporter, is charged with either eight or nine counts of voting for other people. They seem to have been mostly relatives of hers. Fox News also adds that she at first admitted...

    Election Fraud? Obama Won More Than 99 Percent Of The Vote In More Than 100 Ohio Precincts By Michael Snyder November 11th, 2012 Barack Obama received more than 99% of the vote in more than 100 precincts in Cuyahoga County, Ohio on election day. In fact, there were a substantial number of precincts where Mitt Romney got exactly zero votes. So how in the world did this happen? Third world dictators don't even get 99% of the vote. Overall, Mitt Romney received 30.12% of the vote in Cuyahoga County. There were even a bunch of precincts in Cuyahoga County that...

He also says regarding Ohio that in coal country there will be quite a few Democrat votes cast for Mitt Romney, so it can’t be taken for granted that just because it’s a Democrat vote it is an Obama vote.

A campaign official said today that after Romney votes in his hometown of Belmont, Mass., tomorrow morning he will head to two swing states, Ohio and Pennsylvania. The stops will be in Cleveland and Pittsburgh. It was not immediately clear how many events would be held in each state or what kind of events they will be.
  • How Sherrod Brown Pleased The Communist Party (Newly discovered Brown editorial in Communist paper)

    Newly uncovered press items from the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) are raising concerns about how the CPUSA might be influencing Sherrod Brown’s policy stances. The CPUSA appears to believe it has a vested interest in the senator.  Prior to his public announcement of candidacy for the Ohio Senate seat, Brown exhibited affinity with the CPUSA by permitting an editorial he authored to be published in the communist paper, the People’s World.  In the piece, Brown argued that mild entitlement reforms passed in 2003 justified lamenting that “democracy crumbles under the cover of darkness.” Apparently, CPUSA agreed with the senator. In the midst of Brown’s first...

But enthusiasm for President FailureTeleprompter can be judged by more than comparisons with Romney. In 2008, at his last stop in Cleveland, a Democrat stronghold, Obama attracted 80,000 people.

    Click on the link below for the analysis. There are some good points that this blog makes about why Ohio might be out of reach for Romney. It boils down to the fact that all polls show the race as tied as best in Ohio - not a single poll has shown R&R leading there. The average lead for 0 based on OH state polls is around 2 points, enough to put him over the top in Ohio based on historical trends correlating polls to actual results. I have read articles here from prognosticators, tea leaf readers and political...

What started as a couple of polls with questionable samples has become a consensus. Pollsters, with few exceptions, are predicting that Democrats will at least maintain their turnout edge from 2008 if not increase it. A sampling of the crosstabs from recent Ohio polling reveals the following:

    Ever since the first debate in Denver, Mitt Romney has been on an upward trajectory in the polls. While he has leveled off somewhat over the last week, nationally he has turned a four-point deficit into a one-point lead. The lead actually jumps to two points if you include only the eight most recent national (non-online) polls. In those polls, Romney leads independents by an average of 17.5 points, which is a remarkable increase over the past month, and an amazing reversal of Obama’s 8-point lead with independents in the 2008 election. Romney has now been at or above 50...

    In 2008, Barack Obama campaigned like a rock star, especially in places hard hit by the economy, like Ohio --- which Obama won by five points in the election, while enjoying a D+8 turnout. Four years later, the rock-star vibe has utterly faded, and the campaign has turned into a grind for Team Obama as they dig up every vote they can find to try to hold off a resurgent Mitt Romney in the Buckeye State. Byron York describes it as "the magic is gone": Messina is particularly focused on what are called low-propensity or sporadic voters --- that is,...

Romney is chipping away at Obama’s poll lead, but the Democratic advantage in party-ID has increased across these polls. When looking at the polls in Ohio, it is becoming entirely possible that Mitt Romney should be able to win Ohio without ever showing a consistent lead in the polls, or any lead...

    Riding a wave of strong support among women, President Barack Obama holds a 50 - 45 percent lead over Republican Gov. Mitt Romney among likely voters in the crucial swing state of Ohio, according to a Quinnipiac University/CBS News poll released today, half the 53 - 43 percent margin he held when Quinnipiac/CBS News/the New York Times surveyed Buckeye likely voters September 26.

    Lots of buzz about the latest CBS News/Quinnipiac poll in Ohio, taken after the second debate, and especially about its methodology. Let’s take a look at the toplines first, which despite the rather silly sample shows Mitt Romney with the momentum in the Buckeye State: President Obama is holding on to a five-point lead over Republican Mitt Romney in Ohio, but that margin has been cut in half since September, according to a new Quinnipiac University/CBS News poll. Mr. Obama holds a 50 to 45 percent lead over Romney among likely voters in the Buckeye State, down from a 53...

    Just a few weeks ago, Ohio was a state that was considered almost every media outlet to be a solid lock for Obama. ThereÂ’s no need to rehash the actual headlines, but some even suggested Romney give up on Ohio and look elsewhere for a path to victory. Before the first debate, Romney was down 5.6 in RCPÂ’s Buckeye State average. Today he is down 2.5, cutting his deficit by more than half, presumably in large part due to his strong first-debate performance. Here are a few reasons why itÂ’s even closer than that: Democratic turnout advantage from 2008 probably...

    Two new Ohio polls came out yesterday after my Ohio post, from from Gravis Marketing and PPP, both of which point to a razor-thin race in the most coveted swing state. A closer look at each poll shows just how much Romney has gained since the debates, and why he would be absolutely thrilled if these polls were accurate on Election Day. The poll from Gravis Marketing shows Obama and Romney tied at 47 percent. But that’s as good as it gets for Obama. Among the most interesting tidbits from the poll: Romney leads Obama by 19 percent among independents,...
  • IBD/TIPP Poll - Is it Credible?

    10/20/2012 1:32:29 PM PDT · by NY4Romney · 49 replies
    The latest IBD/TIPP Poll shows Obama up 3, 47 to 44 (though that's due to rounding, it's actually only Obama up 2.6%). Now, both sides love to discredit any poll that doesn't look good for them: look at how the left is freaking out about the "outlier" of a Gallup poll. I don't do that..I've seen many polls that look bad for Romney that I actually find believable once looking at the internals. I never discredit a poll just because I don't like it - I just call it like I see it. Having said that... The IBD/TIPP poll is...

    The latest Gravis Marketing poll conducted in Ohio shows Governor Romney and President Obama locked in a virtual dead heat, 47% to 47%. .. snip.. Governor Romney leads with independents 52 to 33 percent. snip.. Considering no Republican candidate has ever won the presidency without first winning Ohio, the internals from this survey are rather encouraging. In fact, the ridiculous D/R/I sample breakdown — which is 41/32/27(!) — suggests that despite the obvious skew the Buckeye State is unquestionably up for grabs.

    Despite a dip in support, Barack Obama retains a narrow 46-43 percent edge over Republican challenger Mitt Romney in the Buckeye state. Obama topped Romney by seven percentage points in Ohio a month ago (49-42 percent). The president has lost ground among independents (down 10 points from September), women (down eight points) and voters under age 35 (down six points).

    With eighteen days till Election Day, the momentum is firmly on the Republican side in Ohio. President Obama has offered no positive vision for the next four years, and after voters heard from the two candidates during the debates, the GOP has surged in Ohio. For weeks our unprecedented ground game has been setting records in voter contacts, and now it is paying off. The proof is in absentee ballot and early voting totals.

    Though it has often been suggested that the winner of Ohio will walk away with the presidency, in 2012 that repeatedly asserted chestnut might well be true. Counting states which lean towards Romney and are likely or solidly in his corner, Real Clear Politics (RCP) claims the Governor currently has 206 electoral votes. Obama has a total of 201. There are ten states which are considered toss-ups. They are (with their electoral votes): Colorado (9); Florida (29); Iowa (6); Michigan (16); Nevada (6); New Hampshire (4); Ohio (18); Pennsylvania (20); Virginia (13); and Wisconsin (10).

  • Republicans point to early vote gains in Ohio

    Middleburg Heights, Ohio (CNN) - They got smoked in the early voting game in 2008, but this time around Republicans are closing the gap with Democrats. Most observers here expect the early vote to tilt toward President Barack Obama, as it did in 2008. The Obama campaign has worked overtime to get their supporters to vote early and successfully sued the Ohio secretary of state to keep early voting locations open through the weekend preceding Election Day. – Follow the Ticker on Twitter: @PoliticalTicker – Check out the CNN Electoral Map and Calculator and game out your own strategy for...
