    This why I don’t believe anything CNN and the rest of the MSN bafoons say about Obama’s lead in OH.

      According to that busted CNN Ohio poll’s own numbers: 1.4 million people in Ohio have already voted, and Obama leads there, 59-38. Of the 4.4 million Ohio voters who haven’t voted yet, Romney leads 51-44.

      59% of 1.4 million vs. 38% of 1.4 million = Obama leading in early voting, 826,000 to 532,000.

      51% of 4.4 million vs. 44% of 4.4 million = Romney leading with those who haven’t voted yet, 2,244,000 to 1,936,000.

      Adding the total together: Romney 2,776,000, Obama 2,762,000. So even with CNN’s screwy numbers, and Obama leading with independents (which is amusing), Romney comes out on top (based on their numbers) by 14,000 votes.

      Considering the reality is much more favorable for Romney, he’s in great shape in Ohio. The media is doing everything imaginable to save Obama in Ohio, because they know if (when) it falls for Romney, Obama is done.

        Someone please explain to me how they got the “1.4 million people in Ohio have already voted” number. Because according to Ohio’s Secretary of State, 3 days ago the number of people who had actually voted was only 800,000:
        Did 600,000 people stampede the polls in the last 3 days? Or is CNN lying about how many people have already voted?

        Well that’s why the CNN poll is garbage. They’re saying more people have voted early because that pads Obama’s numbers and produces a poll that shows him ahead, which perpetuates the media narrative.

        “Of those, 618,861 absentee ballots by mail have been cast.”

        A DC politcal junkie was a guest on a local radio program in my town. It was said that OH sent out absentee ballot requests to everyone and ended up sending out over million (could be the 1.4 million figure) absentee ballots. Thus far they have received less than half back. On Nov 6, folks who were sent absentee ballots can only fill out provisional ballots that can’t be reconciled until 11 days after the election. If this is true and more ballots stay out, it’s likely OH results will be in limbo for 11 days, if it’s close, or longer with a lawyers.

        The narrative in the MSM some ten days before the election seems to have become that no matter how well Mitt is doing he cant win without Ohio and Obama is leading ergo Obama has the upper hand. This is pure propaganda BS. Dont believe the nonsense. True insiders who have seen the numbers and who know what theyre talking about know that Romney is going to win Ohio.

        Through yesterday it was less than one million early voters in OH.

      • Posted October 26, 2012 at 10:17 pm | Permalink

        The RNC released a statement last night showing that in early voting, 492,000 Dems and 401,000 GOP have cast ballots. Because there are fewer liberal GOP than conservative Dems, the gap is actually smaller than 92,000, probably closer to 80,000, with early voting two thirds done. Obama’s final margin among early voting Dems and GOP will be around 120,000. Polls show Romney leading 7-15% among independents and there are 1.7M of them in Ohio who vote, so even taking the 7% number, Romney gets back 120,000 among independents and worst case scenario he is even, before counting GOP and Dems who vote on election day. McCain had 150,000-200,000 more GOP than Dems vote on election day 2008, Romney will easily exceed this and that will be his margin of victory.

        Numbers are even worse for Obama in Fla. and whoever win Ohio and Fla. wins the WH. It’s over. An incumbent polling 45-47% in every poll, with no major third party presence, is always going to lose, no matter how much Nate Silver insists it isn’t so.

        I agree 100% with the above, it’s over. Take into account that in 2008 only 89% of Democrats voted for Obama in Ohio and it makes it even stronger for Romney. He’s pretty much already won Ohio.

      CNN poll and others are hiding Romney’s lead in Ohio. Their poll sample has 40% said that they have already voted. CNN assumes that 40% is the actual percentage voted in Ohio. Not True. So far, it is 18.1%. They multiply with that 40% instead of 18.1% to produce an outcome and added to the outcome from those have not voted. This resulted Obama lead by 4. If you use 18.1, you can a different prediction or snapshot (Mitt Romney 53, Obama 47). This give Mitt a 6 pt lead.

        I hate to sound like a conspiracy theorist, but is it possible the liberal media knows the Dems will try to cheat and are inflating the numbers for Obama so it isn’t called into question if he wins? I was encouraged when I saw that half a million ineligible voters were removed from the voter rolls in Ohio, maybe the Republicans cracking down on fraud this year will make them too scared to try?

      • Posted October 26, 2012 at 10:52 pm | Permalink

        It’s not a conspiracy. They are “for profit” enterprises. Their ratings go up if there is a horsearce into and through election night. They will keep it close no matter what. Few remember that even though the race was over by this point four years ago there were plenty of “momentum” stories for McCain. Did the same thing for Dukakis in 88 and others.

        So true. I don’t think it’s that the media is trying to necessarily root here – I’m sure some are – but they want a tight race to maximize interest. Fox even has done it on their polls. I’d guess that many will report the likelihood of a big Romney win a few days before the election, after the time has run out.

      This is a good snapshot of the entire country, I believe. Even Democrats admit that “enthusiasm is down.” The liberal media is skewing polls every which way they can to show Obama tied or leading, but the fact is that a lot of Democrats simply will not vote this year.

      Not getting too excited but if that poll is accurate, and assuming D’s haven’t been over- or under-sampled, it means that even Oregon is potentially in play. Romney at 42%, and getting 2/3 of the 11% who are undecided “when pushed”, would put him at 49-1/3% vs. Obama at 50-2/3%.

        Anyone have some party ID splits for OR? I’m sure Dems still have the ID advantage but if we are looking at something like an even-ish national electorate and it comes down to ~D+4 or 5 in a state like OR then this polls internals get “interesting” in a hurry.

        2008 D +9 (Dem 36, Rep 27, Ind 37) and 2004 R +2 (Dem 32, Rep 34, Ind 34)

    Didn’t know where else to put this, and I don’t know if it’s been posted elsewhere in other threads, but…

    ARG poll in OH showing Obama up 49-47….D/R/I is 43/34/23 and Early voters are 28% with Obama leading 55-44, and Romney only up by 1 with Election Day voters, so it would appear both fudge factors (too many D’s; too man Early’s) are in play on this one.

    Purple Strategies poll in OH showing Obama up 46-44….D/R/I is 34/27/38, and early voters are 26% with Obama leading 58-32, so again, both fudge factors in play.

    Somebody, I say, somebody is a-lyin’, and come a week from Tuesday, we’re gonna find out who.

      These polls average D+8 and still have Obama sitting at 47.5. Think about that for a second.

      • Posted October 27, 2012 at 12:36 am | Permalink

        I went back to 1916 and looked at the differences between the national vote percentages and the Ohio vote percentages. The Average National precentage was 48.69-46.89 (+1.8%) in favor of the Republican. The Average Ohio percentage was 50.49-45.38 (+5.11%) in favor of the Republican. The GOP average over performance was 3.11% of the National Average. The best performer was Herbert Hoover in 1932, yes 1932 (+14.91%); worst performer was of all people Warren G Harding in 1920 (-6.28%). Best in 50 years was GW Bush in 2000 (+4.02%) worst was Barry Goldwater (-3.30%) in 1964.

        Nice analysis. Just looked into it, Harding actually still *won* Ohio with that under-performance, which was most likely because both candidates were from Ohio. The two worst under-performs on your list(Harding and Goldwater) are from blow-out elections (60%+ of the popular vote went to the winners). The fact the Romney seems to be winning Indy’s in most of the OH polls fairly handily and with numbers consistent with the national polls would indicate that he would have to MASSIVELY under-perform in the D/R split relative to the national D/R split. The early voting numbers(or at least ballots requested) don’t seem to indicate this.

    Is anyone else following this? I have to say the thought of POTUS leaving those guys out there really pisses me off. Even if DoD didn’t want to we should have sent help. This is really looking like a political decision. I sure hope I’m wrong.

      You aren’t wrong. Obama knew what was happening as it was happening and made the decision to let our men die. He is so pro-Muslim I think he didn’t want a single shot from us fired on anyone in that region, even terrorists. I don’t think he *wanted* our men to die, but he absolutely caused it.

    I am telling you, the liberal media is missing something…truth! There is something in the air, something big is about to happen…this will be a historic election, it may not be a complete landslide like 1980 but it will be a significant win for Romney. The media doesn’t want to report these huge crowds for Romney because it doesn’t fit the narrative they are trying to make about Obama. That is why most of the polls are so close. They have to make it look like a close race because they have spent the last 5 years bowing at the feet of Obama. I think the weekend before the election the polls will start showing a nice lead for Romney in the states he needs to win and on election night the media will surprised at how many states he picks that he didn’t need to win. Also, there is no way that 9% more Democrats are turning out to vote this time. That is just hogwash and fantasy on their part. And this Nate Silver at the NYT is about the biggest idiot I have ever seen with a high education. He is taking all these false polls and trying to establish that Obama has a 70% chance of winning. If he continues to rely on these polls in his mathmatical equations then I feel sorry for him on election night. Democrats and the liberal media think he is an election prophet because he got it right in 2008. Well, it didn’t take a genius to figure out who was going to win in every state. He is not the genius they think he is or he would be looking at the polls based in reality and reason. You may have polls but you also have to figure on real voter turnout, enthusiam, and have a feel for what’s on the ground. That was easily done back in ’08. I predict Romney wins big and the liberals in fantasy land at MSNBC, CNN, NYT’s, etc will be in shock with mouths wide open on election night crying and in panic mode.
