Whoa: Early voting in Ohio shows GOP way ahead of 2008 counts; Axelrod speechless

Whoa. This is huge; early voting numbers show a swing of over 250,000 in voter turn-out. In the GOP’s favor!

And there’s more.

More from The Examiner:

Even more dramatic, while the GOP has cut the Democratic advantage in early voting throughout the state, the changes favoring the Republicans in certain counties has been huge. In Franklin County, home to Columbus, for example, a 2008 Democratic advantage of 5 percent is now a 5 percent GOP advantage. In Cuyahoga County, home to Democratic Cleveland, the GOP has shaved six points off the Democrat’s 2008 advantage. And in Hamilton County, home to Cincinnati, Republicans have expanded their 2008 advantage to 13 percent.

University of Dayton Professor Larry Schweikart told American Majority Action President Ned Ryun that the GOP gains favor Romney. “Although it is early, we will soon be at a point where–assuming Republicans vote for Romney–the Democrats will have to overwhelmingly win all the remaining early voting just to be even on November 6. But, given Ohio’s voting history, if the numbers are even close after early voting, Obama will lose, and possibly lose big.”

Double whoa! But, evidently, Nate Silver’s mock-worthy model didn’t get the memo.

Someone is going to need to keep an eye on Nate. Poor dear. Also needing watching? David Axelrod, who seems to be fixing to start scrawling in a tear-stained diary, if his appearance on “Fox News Sunday” is any indication.

Delicious, indeed. Watch and smack your lips!

But, hey, it’s not really his fault.

Exactly. Facts are so hard, and so is reality.

We were wondering why Axelrod wouldn’t bet his creep-stache on Ohio. Now we know why.

    • Garth Haycock

      Does anyone really think that Axelrod will shave after Obama loses? He’s a liberal. They promise the world but deliver nothing.

        yeah – remember all the libs who promised to leave the US if Bush won? they’re still here. . . . . .

        • Sheerie Knoll

          Yeah I remember that too. And I laughed when I heard the same threat concerning Romney win.

      • James Neal

        He will be so convinced that the conservatives somehow stole his blue states that he will renege on the bet. After all, his pres hasn’t kept a single promise he made either, so why should be be surprised? Just winning will be enough — I could care less about his 70’s porn creeptache…

      • Dick Bass

        It’s necessary to parse every word with these guys.

        The bet was not about losing…. it was about carrying PA, MI and MN. It doesn’t include the traditional path FL, NC, VA…. OH & NH = 270. or… WI, CO & NH = 271 or WI, CO & IA = 273 or with NV.

        If any of the 3 (PA, MI or MN) fell to Romney ( IMHO game over) it would open so many more paths to 270, make for an early night and watch the 10:00 local news. That is something that Axelrod could not possibly contemplate now. Maybe Nov 7th.

    Booya! Keep it going Ohio!

    • Rabid

      Damn,I wish my ex (also named Michelle) was as smart as you…she’s voting the other way..

  • SAndrews

    It’s potentially even worse than these numbers indicate. The Republican percentages for Romney this cycle rival the Dem percentages for Obama. In 2008 there were many more Republicans who voted for Obama. Every time he attempts to energize his base, he loses these voters who were ‘fooled’ by that post-partisan, hopey-changey BS.

    I think it may have the potential to be worse than the Dems think. I don’t think Obama won without Republicans voting for him last time. Voter registration doesn’t necessarily equate to the actual choice in the ballot booth. Add that to disgruntled Dems this time, can’t this swing in toward a huge victory for Romney?

    • TwitWit

      YES! i wonder why NO ONE has mentioned the “real” democrats that are NOT progressives.. so many of them will vote for Romney over obama.

    • Darkstar1661

      Republicans always show up more on election day – even McCain beat Obama on Election Day in Ohio in 2008.

      In fact, just do the math based off the numbers we have above from the video…
      712,088 Democrats early voted in 2008
      372,498 Republicans early voted in 2008

      Obama won Ohio by 262,224 but won early voting by 339,590, so McCain even won Election Day voters by 77,366 – and who the heck wanted to vote for McCain?

      Edit to include that Obama won Independents y like 5 in 2008. This year, all polling is showing a consistent 10-20 lead for Romney among Inds. McCain would have been within a couple hundred in 2008, even while losing Independents, based off these 2012 levels of early voting. Switch those Inds and all of a sudden you have an easy Republican win.

    You realize of course that the Democrat party’s endgame is to one day argue in court that actual election results are invalid on the grounds that they deviate from Nate Silver’s predictive model.

    You think they would not try it? Oh but they would! Such a scam would be nothing compared to the global warming hoax, and look how long they milked that sow with state controlled media help!

    I fear we have circuit court judges seated today who would be inclined to rule a state election invalid, or a federal election invalid, on just such a ground. I.e., that the electoral results failed to align with an established scientific model.

    All of this underscores the urgency of removing the coercive utopians from power.

    The so-called 250,000 Republican shift is not a shift at all. There was no Democratic Presidential primary this year, so naturally fewer people who asked for ballots were considered Democrats when the ballot was sent out. The Democrats did not lose any voters, they just lost 154,000 mail-in ballots labeled Democrat because there was no Democratic Primary in 2012, whereas there was one in 2008.

    1.2 million voted in the Republican primary in 2012, while 1 million voted in 2008. We could expect a 200,000 mail in ballot increase from the Republicans on this basis. However only 100,000 more mail in ballots were attached to the Republican name because of their primary vote increase. All of these new 100,000 Republicans were likely hard Republican voters in 2008. The only difference is that they voted on election day in 2008 and they are voting by mail-in this time.

    So the increase in Republican mail-in ballots and the decease in Democratic mail-in ballots are based solely on the fact that more people voted in the Republican Primary in 2012 (probably because there were more candidates) and there was no Democratic Primary in 2012, while there was one in 2008.

    When we discount these meaningless numbers as all serious election analyzers have, we see that President Obama is on track to do somewhat better in early voting then he did in 2008 and on track to take Ohio by the same 5% that he did in 2008.

    • mike_in_kosovo

      Funny how the numbers are only meaningless when they show Romney in the lead.

      • JayRaskin

        The numbers are meaningless because the numbers are meaningless. They do not tell you who is getting more votes. They only tell you that more Republicans voted in the Ohio primary in 2012 than in 2008 and fewer Democrats voted in the Democratic primary in 2012 than in 2008. If 150,000 new Obama voters signed up at the Democratic primary in 2008, asked for mail-in ballots, they were listed as Democrats. If 150,000 new Obama voters asked for mail-in ballots this year, they were listed as unaffiliated because they had never voted before,. Whether listed as Democrats or unaffiliated, they are still going to vote for President Obama. So what appears to be a shift from Democratic to unaffiliated voters of 150,000 votes is not a shift at all.

        • mike_in_kosovo

          Funny how they’re so meaningless that they can’t speak to a Romney advantage, but simultaneously meaningful enough for you to state that “Obama is on track to do somewhat better in early voting than he did in 2008 and on track to take Ohio by the same 5% that he did in 2008.”

          Oh, and btw? Ohio is a ‘Super Tuesday’ state and did, in fact, have a primary election on 6 March.

          And wow… Obama voters requested 2012 ballots in 2008? Amazing!!! /sarc

          I believe that’s called being “hoist on your own petard”, as well as showing the hypocrisy of your position.

          Go away, troll.

          • JayRaskin

            I am basing my 5% prediction, partly on the fact that 9 of the last 10 polls on Real Clear Politics shows President Obama with an average lead of 2.8% over the last two weeks. Other polls have shown Obama gaining strength over the last few days, moving from being 1% behind to about 2% ahead in the popular vote in national polls. That would suggest that he would do better than the 2.8% lead he has been averaging over the last two weeks in Ohio.

            Also, Rasmussen Shows Obama and Romney tied in Ohio. Rasmussen statistically gave 4.8% more votes to the Republicans in 2010 and they appear to be using the same faulty polling system they used then. Based on that, we again get a 5% win in Ohio for President Obama.

            The long lines at the polling places in Ohio today also suggest that President Obama will gain enough early votes to easily defeat Romney. Given the bad press Romney has gotten from his lying ads in Ohio, and the fact that President Obama supported the auto bail-out while Romney did not, I would not be surprised if he led by 6 or 8% by the end of Tuesday.

Given the bad press Romney has gotten from his lying ads in Ohio, and the fact that President Obama supported the auto bail-out while Romney did not, I would not be surprised if he led by 6 or 8% by the end of Tuesday.

            And you know for a fact that all those people in line were voting Obama *how*, exactly? I see you even got the “Romney didn’t support the bailout” lie in there.

      You and the rest of us know MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, Yahoo, and most of the rest of the LSM lie 24/7/365. Polls are just that, polls, a sampling or collection of opinions on a subject, taken from either a selected or a random group of persons, as for the purpose of analysis.
      Tuesday night is what matters, and no matter what happens, the left will have lawyers out in force suing for recounts, to have votes against Obama thrown out, and anything else they can think of to have your side win . . . at all costs.

      Hey Jay ….. cry us a river. You state run media patsies who yearn for one sided news presentations on every single channel in the universe are embarrassing. Fox News is the singular voice of dissent on 200 channels and if you and the entire DNC had it your way they would be gone tomorrow. Four years ago you patsies were saying dissent is the highest form of patriotism and yet these days you’ve done an epic 180 and are now unapologetically calling it dishonest and racist.

      So what if Fox isn’t dishonestly editing videos all the time, burying stories that don’t fit your fascist narratives and aren’t doing everything they can to promote your gender wars, your race wars, your class wars and your religious wars like the others do …. for that they don’t deserve your hollow scorn but instead deserve the unyielding support of the nation which they already have. Fox News …. #1 in the country for 13 years and countng … particularly among hard working, patriotic Americans. If Fox News is at odds with OWS, felons and racists, and they are, I’m quite sure they can live with themselves.

      This is a self delusional post. Its clear that independents are breaking big time for Romney and many of these early votes were done at the polls where party affilation was given. As for the Fox News comment -thats something only a self loathing liberal drone would say.

      • JayRaskin

        Rasmussen polling gave Republicans 4.8% more votes in 2010 on average than they recieved. If we exclude the Rasmussen poll, which showed the race tied, we have four different polls in the last four days showing President Obama ahead by 4, 3, 6, and 5 points. That is an average lead of 4.5%. This is quite consistent with the 5% he won Ohio by last time.

        According to one analysis, when 3 polls are taken in a state before the presidential election and they all agree on a leader, the odds are better than 90% that the candidate leading in the polls will win. When the lead is more than 5%, the results are 100%. At 4.5%, we can estimate the odds of President Obama winning Ohio at around 98% based on previous presidential polls.

    What kind of statement is “we will know in 2 days who’s bluffing and who is not bluffing?” seriously this is the best Axelrod can do…I am sure he had more to say but this is his lead response? He spoke in such a faint way I think he may be thinking he’s about to lose his job and then he acted like he was in shock with his stammering to begin his rebuttal. Thank God we only have 2 more days left til we know the outcome.

    Take it from this Ohio Buckeye, (Born in Steubenville)
    Put Obama out to pasture.

    If the president refuses to answer questions about the
    foremen killed in Benghazi before
    the election, Doesn’t that give us all a reason to change our vote? Regarding
    Transparency, Mr. “O” doesn’t seem to know meaning of the word. VOTE
    HIM OUT and ask questions later.

    An open letter to my Buckeye friends living in Ohio

    I was born in Steubenville, Ohio.
    Lived a short time in Youngstown
    and have friends and relatives in East Palestine,
    Ohio . I am having a problem as to why any
    one with common sense would vote for Obama. What has he done for Ohio?
    in fact, what has he done for or should I say done to the USA?
    Ohio is a great state so why not
    elect a great president?

    Think about Mr. Obama’s record? He hasn’t one worth talking
    about. He has insulted some of our closest friend around the world, Bowed down
    to a sheik, Apologized for America to countries who don’t even care about
    America, Lied abut Libya and the murder of four diplomats and claimed it was
    caused by a video which was repudiated four weeks later. Claimed to have saved
    GM which has the Volt to its collection of ugly cars. The volt cost about
    $70.000 to produce, and riddled with problems including catching on fire, not
    selling and now can be purchased for around $10,000 WOW! what a bargain! Do you
    want one?…I certainly don’t. Why vote for someone who hides all of his
    records. Do you know who this man is? I don’t and neither does anyone else with
    the exception of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. Two losers to say the least. Does
    Obama deserve a second term? Not on his past record or should I say what past
    record? How’s Obama care working out for you? As far as what it will eventually
    cost, To quote Jimmy Durante, “You ain’t seen nothing yet” Mr. Obama
    has signed over 1000 executive orders, far more than any president in the
    history of the USA and many are a threat to you and to America. A true red
    blooded buckeye like me vote for this fraud,

    No way. Wake up OHIO
    before it is too late.

  • Winston

    Four years ago many people voted out of ignorance; this election, anyone who votes for Obama isn’t doing so out of ignorance, but wants to join Obama in finishing destroying the economy, making the United States weaker internationally, continuing to be subservient to foreign oil and the Chinese, who owns a large part of our debt. The government has reached a point where they are more concerned about China’s economy that our own. We need a change in the White House. Time to send Obama back to Chicago.

    Obama has talked about nation building at home. Why vote for the one who bears a great deal of the responsibility for the demise?

  • wodiej

    Tuesday Nov. 6th will be the first day in obama’s life he will be held accountable for something. Praise God, Amen.

  • riggy

    Friends, let us not forget that Obama has spent the last four years oppressing Christians, women, freedom-lovers, the self-sufficient, the moral, the military, and basically everything good and decent. So, when we win the White House, let’s show the left what eye for an eye is all about. De-fund and destroy every vile, lying, poisonous institution in the USA. Cut them off at the knees, then the neck, then make sure they NEVER get back up. Stay calm. Finish them.

    YARD SIGN REPORT >>>I’m in Adams county OH. Southern ohio. Went to Krogers today. Last time was Oct 11th. I was BLOWN AWAY. It was 54 miles round trip. We traveled state routes 41, 124 going, rt73 back. Saw 30-40yards with local Dem signs without any prez signs with them. Prez signs we counted were…Gary Johnson..3 Obama..7 Romney..92!!! NINETY TWO. Now the 30-40 local Dem signs (county commish, treasurer, county prosecuter etc.) may be Obama voters also. OR they like the local Dem but NOT Obama. But even if all of them LOVE King Obama, that is still more than 2 to 1 Romney. We are pretty much the gun loving, bible toting religion clingers round here….yep we are. XXXOOO

  • sabrose

    In several polls 10-13 percent of previous Obama voters will be voting for Romney. Thats too much fo BO to overcome Its the simple truth right there no matter how you libs try to spin it. Change is coming only its away from socialism ,undefended borders disjointed foreign policy and the absence of a moral compass in our president .
    The country is waking up. Have been slowly drugged by a constant stream of liberal propaganda it no longer trusts those that have been spouting it. The Axelrod’s The NYT the WP have been called out by a people wanting honesty and direction in our leadership. A new media the true media of the people has emerged and there is no turning back. If the NYT ABC NBC etc dont start reporting the news and instead shape and twist it they will continue to dwindle in stature and viewership.

    The main street media is covering for Obama it would be a rout if they would put the importance on the following post as it deserves.

    The failure of Obama’s leading from behind foreign policy and appeasement of Islamic Terrorist is captured in an interview with Senator Graham on the Gretta Vansustern show. The contempt for Obama and his team is a world wide phenomena as displayed by the fact that Tunisia would not allow access to the captured eye witness to the attack on the American compound when requested by the Obama’s team. Two United States Senators, whom the Tunisia trusts, were able to secure permission with a phone call and a letter. This is a damning indictment of Obama and his leadership. The full interview can be seen on the Real Clear Politics web site: (http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2012/11/03/new_libya_developments_fbi_in_tunisia_questioning_benghazi_suspect.html)

    The CBS produced time line on the attack reveals the first of many lies that Obama was to spread on the murder and rape of Ambassador Stevens: The lie that they were not sure as to what was happening during the attack is exposed by Ms. Lamb statement that they were listening to events in real time at the state department. If the state department was listening then the white house situation room and the Pentagon was aware in minutes of the attack and was following it in real time. CBS NEWS/ November 2, 2012, 8:55 PM

    “9:40 p.m. (3:40 p.m. ET): Gunfire and an explosion are heard. A TOC agent sees dozens of armed people over security camera flowing through a pedestrian gate at the compound’s main entrance. It is not clear how the gate was opened.

    The agent hits the alarm and alerts the CIA security team in the nearby annex and the Libyan 17th of February Brigade, one of several powerful militias serving as a de facto security presence in Benghazi. The embassy in Tripoli and the State Dept. command center were also alerted.

    State Dept. Diplomatic Security follows events in real time on a listen-only, audio-only feed, according to testimony of Charlene Lamb, the deputy assistant director for international programs, given before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Oct 10.”


    “CBS time lines reveals that: “Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is told of the incident “shortly after it began at 4 p.m.,” CBS News’ Margaret Brennan reported Sept. 14. Clinton spoke to the Libyan President Mohammed Magariaf to “enlist his full support.”

    “11 p.m. (5 p.m. ET): Just ahead of the weekly meeting with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Chairman of Joint Chiefs Martin Dempsey, White House National Security Advisor Tom Donilon tells President Obama of the attack and the fire at the main villa. The president is updated several times throughout the evening.”

    “1:00 a.m. (7 p.m. ET): The first of two unmanned U.S. Predator drones, which already had been flying over eastern Libya, is diverted to Benghazi, as reported by CBS News’ Sharyl Attkisson and David Martin on Oct. 15.”

    Panetta statement that they did not take actions because they were not sure what was happening on the ground was a blatant lie and a cover up for the President not giving the order for the military to engage An unknown person in Washington gave the order for the CIA and the Military to stand down there by signing the death warrant of Ambassador Stevens and our other brave men assigned to post in Benghazi. The official with the final authority to go or no go lies with the President of the United States.

    Obama, Hillary and Rice lied to the American public and the world when they blamed this on a spontaneous demonstration that got out of control over a video on U-tube. This was a fabricated story to cover up the incompetence of Obama. These lies by Obama and his team has lowered the word of the President of the United States to the value of used toilet tissue. Our friends can not trust us and our enemies knows we have weak leadership which inspires them to attack Americans. Obama has reduced all Americans to the staus of “Targets of Opportunity”

    “President Obama addresses the public: “Make no mistake, we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people.

    “Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification for this type of senseless violence. … No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.”

    Meanwhile, senior State Dept. officials share initial details of the attack in Benghazi with members of the press via phone briefing. A senior official says in response to an inquiry about alleged protests outside of consulate that night: “We frankly don’t have a full picture of what may have been going on outside of the compound walls before the firing began. … With regard to whether there is any connection between this Internet activity and this extremist attack in Benghazi, frankly, we just don’t know. We’re not going to know until we have a chance to investigate.” (CBS News}

    Sept. 16: U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice tells Bob Schieffer on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that there is no information that suggests the attack was preplanned.

    “We’ll want to see the results of that investigation to draw any definitive conclusions. But based on the best information we have to date, what our assessment is as of the present is in fact what began spontaneously in Benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in Cairo where, of course, as you know, there was a violent protest outside of our embassy … sparked by this hateful video. But soon after that spontaneous protest began outside of our consulate in Benghazi, we believe that it looks like extremist elements, individuals, joined in that — in that effort with heavy weapons of the sort that are, unfortunately, readily now available in Libya post-revolution. And that it spun from there into something much, much more violent. … We do not have information at present that leads us to conclude that this was premeditated or preplanned.” (http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-202_162-57544719/timeline-how-benghazi-attack-probe-unfolded/?tag=fdleft;fdmodule)

    The denial and lack of honesty by officials of the democratic party has rendered them unfit to govern. No Honest person can justify these deaths, the facts are clear and the denial of these facts by blind followers of Obama makes them equally responsible of the murder of these brave Americans. Thanks to the reporters of CBS, FOX news the President can not hide the truth from the American public. To those who are espousing the party line, we have to wait till we get the facts-We have sufficient facts to reject this administration and judge them unfit to govern and possibly bring criminal charges.

    As an Ohio citizen of 57 years, Nobama needs to exit stage left and head to Kenya and run for President, his county of birth. It is a shame that we will need the military to pry Nobama from the White House, because he considers himself invincible and a dictator versus a person who lied their way into our elections.
