    You do realise that if Minn DOESN’T turn red, there’ll be an army of GOP faithful coming after you with pitchforks!

    My mother-in-law lives in Minneapolis. She just told my wife that a lot of her lib friends believe Romney is going to win the Election anyway, so they’re voting for Romney because of a bet with their male friends who swear they will shave their heads and go to work in a dress the day after the Election if MN goes red. I heard the radio guys mention something similar after Keith’s interview. After all, this is the state that elected Jesse “The Body” Ventura governor (the former pro wrestler who had a shaved head and also wore a dress a time or two back in the day). Stranger things have happened…….. We’ll see!

      • Posted October 30, 2012 at 1:40 am | Permalink

        While on the one hand it bothers me that women vote based on wanting to see their male friends humiliate themselves, rather than voting on the fact that Obama has almost destroyed this country in 4 years….this is genuinely funny. And hey, I’ll never complain about more votes for Romney!

    Awesome day in Clark County! Since Keith is without electricity and said he won’t be posting anything for a while I hope he doesn’t mind if I post the actual numbers… they are Dem 14113, Rep 12492, and Other 6352. That leaves Dems down 3.1% day over day, Reps Up 4.1% day over day, and ‘Others’ down 1.0% day over day. This is all in the context of yesterday being a good day in it’s own right for Reps to have an even better day over day comparison from!

      This would explain why Obama is returning to Nevada….

    • nvClark
      Posted October 30, 2012 at 1:30 am | Permalink | Reply

      I guess he had better! There’s only 4 days left of early voting but the current Dem vs Rep turnout lead is 47300 and if we have another day tomorrow that is even a little like today then it’s more than possible that the Reps trendline will rise to cross the falling Dem trendline, causing that lead to actually *decrease*. And all that is without even considering the ‘Others’ category and how they might break for the challenger etc. or how election day turnout typically favors Reps.) This is the only significantly Democratic county in Nevada (Washoe is only a couple thousand votes lead this year which pales in comparison to 47000) so unless Obama creates an unbeatable gap here that the rest of the state’s counties and election day turnout can’t overcome then Romney will take Ohio… and all Romney needs is Ohio and Nevada and he’s over 270. (assuming he takes FL, NC, and VA). I hate to be too optimistic but it seems to me that the pertinent question to consider is rapidly ceasing to be whether Romney will win this election, but rather by how much he will win it.

        Definitely good news. I was beginning to fear that the Democrat hoardes would be enough to sweep Heller out. But if trends from the past couple of days keep up, Romney has a real shot at this state. I can’t believe people in such a recession racked state would want more of the same.

        I crunched the numbers from the “Other Counties”: Republicans have a 10,950 advantage in early voting, and a 501 returned absentee/mail in ballot advantage, for a combined 11,451. These numbers do not include Mondays results. I wonder how this compares to 2008? For an area only representing 14 percent or so of the voting population, it looks like they are currently poised to erase 25 percent or so of Clark County’s voter id advantage at this point. Not bad.

    Just to be clear, all the percentages listed above are the increase or decrease in percentage of each individual count to the respective days total count (as opposed to day over day increase or decrease of the respective days individual count to individual count)

      If it is indeed so expensive to conduct polls it is even more amazing just how many polling entities exist out there (nothing against Elon University, but really?). It would seem to make sense for poll consumers in the mdeida to aggregate resources and do really in-depth polling say once a week using huge samples (a la Gallup but bigger) so MOE is small and party affiliation takes care of itself through large sample size. Hopefully after many/most of the polls bomb on Nov 6th the worst of the bunch will be forced out of existence. The daily tracking polls are just noise for the most part unless like Rasmussen and Gallup they are aggregated into very large samples through averaging.

      I’ve been hitting this issue with the polls pretty hard. It’s not some crazy conspiracy theory, and it’s not new either. This occurs every election cycle. Polls always lean Democrat compared to the election results (except for 2008). Not every poll though, just the cheap media ones that don’t screen their voter pools properly. They end up getting a poll that isn’t really a LV poll or a RV poll, but some hybrid mixed poll. You have to dig into the internals to really find out what’s going on. Everyone needs to read that article linked to.

    Right now, RPC has Obama at 237 EV’s. Everyone is talking about OH but if Obama takes VA (13), NV (6) and NH (4), that would give him 270. What can anybody tell me about Romney’s prospects in VA?

    • Eric
      Posted October 30, 2012 at 7:33 am | Permalink | Reply

      Virginia is tight. It’s closer than Florida. Romney can win without Virginia if necessary though, but I see Virginia going to Romney. If Obama were to win Virginia then Romney wins by taking Ohio and either Iowa, Nevada or Wisconsin. Should Romney win Iowa but lose NH, WI, NV, PA, then he’s at 268 to 270 for Obama. But a win in the 2nd district of Maine ties it up at 269 where Romney would win in the House.

      Romney’s currently ahead in Virginia though along with Colorado, New Hampshire and Ohio. Wisconsin, Iowa, and Pennsylvania are tossups. I have Nevada, Minnesota, and Michigan as leaning slightly to Obama right now.

      Florida’s going to Romney. Even the most favorable Dem samples in Florida polls only give Obama a very narrow lead in Florida.

        Eric, Were’nt you telling me just a few days ago that Virginia was in the bag for Romney — that he was up 6 or 8 points, and I was foolish to worry about it? Or am I confusing you with another person? Thanks. Chuck

      FWIW, Suffolk pulled out of VA, NC and FL a couple of weeks ago, saying they’re wrapped up for Romney and no need to poll further. There are a couple of polls giving O a lead there but they are mostly garbage as I read them – PPP etc.

    Regards to VA – I can tell you from being on the ground in Loudoun County (Obama carried in 2008 54-45, a 11,000 vote advantage) that enthusiasm for Romney is off the charts. Loudoun has traditionally been a Republican leaning county and from all indications we are headed back that way.

      In looking at most of the credible polls out of Virgina and Fla, it probably has tightened a bit, but Romney is around 50 in most of these polls….AND not really taking in account tthe probable turnout/ enthusiasm advantage for Romney. That was the reason in ’08 people never saw NC and IN going his way. I know I have parts of me that likes to fret, but again, he has hit 50… Brings down my nervousness..
