      Yea, I’ve been hesitant to blog those Ohio numbers. I’ve had a few conversations with the guy keeping that spreadsheet and he does a real honest jobs keeping that thing up to date. But as he clearly states up front, the partisan figures aren’t really comparable election over election so I didn’t feel comfortable extrapolating anything with too much certainty based on those figures. All that said, I think it does show a strong pushback by the GOP this year in early voting and is another sign of GOP gains versus 2008 like Flynn writes. I’m just certain how much the gain truly is based on the available information.

      Those numbers from Breitbart.com are absentee ballot requests, but Ohio also has in-person early voting. In my home county, Lucas (Toledo, a strongly blue area) in-person voting had a big Dem turnout. Don’t judge Ohio only by the absentee ballot requests, they are only part of the story.
