Florida Early Vote Results … More Bad News for Obama

It bears reminding in every early vote update, Barack Obama had incredible advantages in 2008 that propelled him to victory.  In state after state that lead is not only diminished this year but strong GOP gains often mitigate Obama’s entire final election day margin.  Florida is only the latest example.  Obama won Florida in 2008 by 236,148 votes:

      Florida is still close but it will go red this time. there may be some doubt about VA still. and the big unknowns are OH, WI, IA, CO, NH… the main problem is that Obama needs only OH ( provided Romney can not sneak PA from under his nose; if this maneuver succeeds it will be the Austerlitz of political campains in USA for decades; I guess Americans know that Austerlitz is the great battle in 1805 when against all odds Napoleon beat the superior combined forces of Rusia and Austria by a cunning attack)… if only this would work…

        Well if Romney takes VA then Obama will need at least an additional state of those five besides Ohio. Ohio will only get him to 261 if Romney were to take the other four.

        Well if Romney were to win VA, then just taking Ohio won’t be enough for Obama. That would put him at 261. He’ll need either WI, CO or IA+NH.

        >>> Romney up by 10 among indies and yet down by 2 in election that is simply not possible….

        This isn’t true any longer. Zogby released a poll showing that indies are impressed with O’s way of dealing with Sandy, and now they’re moving to Obama. He’s actually UP by 2 points with indies now. This is why you see both Rasmussen and Gallup having the race all square now. A week ago, It was 50+ Romeny to 40xxx Obama.

        This is the problem with a static poll. Rassmussen has been tracking 1000 LV’s every night for a 3 night average. RR was + 13 with Indies before Sandy. Yesterday + 5. Today + 9. Tomorrow the Thursday night polling will fall off and I’m sure it will continue at a minimum of + 9 if not greater. Pew’s data will be 3 days old by Election Day in a fluid electorate. See Gallup poll weekend of 1980 election.

        9% lead for Romney with indies. I hope Rasmussen is right! But I don’t understand how his numbers can add up.
        He has it 49-49 39% Democrats and 37% Republicans. How can this be using modern math?? 🙂
        Assume 90% of dems and repubs vote party line, how can there be a 9% advantage of indies for Romney and the poll be tied??? It would have to indicate that a large majority of Repubs are going to vote Obama and I KNOW that isn’t going to happen.

      See page 10 of Pew’s poll from about a month ago:

      Party ID breakdown of respondents was 392 R (36%), 361 D (33%), 328 I (30%), so R+3 — and he ended up with Romney +4.

      Now, however, in the Pew poll released today, we get the following party ID breakdown of respondents — 843 R (32%), 1007 D (38%), 761 I (29%), or D+6. And lo and behold, we get Obama +3.

      Pew moved the party ID by a full 9 POINTS in favor of the Democrats in less than one month’s time, and moved the needle on the result by 7 points.

        Amen to the “one year in a communist country” line. I was stationed in West Germany at the tail end of the Cold War, travelling numerous times into East Germany, the Czech Republic and Poland soon after the Iron Curtain collapsed. Memories of the decay, despair, and overall poverty of those countries still haunts me when I hear Americans extolling the virtues of Socialism. There’s a great post by an economist from UC-Berkeley(!) showing how places like East Germany and North Korea are great economic laboratories for side-by-side comparisons of capitalist and Marxist systems. After 50 years or so, the normal differential for GDP is 10X per capita. From what I saw, that economist is dead on. That said, the old line still applies: “A conservative is a liberal who has just been mugged. A liberal is a conservative who has just been arrested.”

With a 2004 turnout and even an average of 2004 and 2008, Romney wins.

      Red G. If you are real, take a little time and look at the EV data of the mains states RR need to win. FLA, NC, VA, OH, CO and you will see the Dems are way down and the Repubs are way up. Obama won these states primarily on the strength of the EV. Not there this time. He needs this because the GOP historically wins the Election Day vote. No reason to believe it won’t happen again.

With 8 days EV, D is up 133K votes albeit down 36%. You take away 36% and 35% from the final tally, D still has enough to carry the state. Laugh if you want.

      Early voting TOTALS were highest ever recorded in FL. So even though it was a shorter time frame, people voted in greater numbers. And 0bama’s margin dropped substantially.

      I sent me 15 year old daughter to the local 0bama office to “volunteer” last weekend. I had her write down the area codes she was calling. Had some local, but at least half were WI, IA, OH, and MI. She left her cell phone number to get updates on GOTV effort. Never got a call. Said there were 2 people in the office and it was completely disorganized compared to the Romney Office where she is an intern. FWIW

    Deep breaths… Peter Hamby ‏@PeterHambyCNN
    Dems in Ohio blowing up early vote today in blue counties like Cuyahoga, Lucas, Franklin. Some GOP anxiety about it.

      Just posted on numbers Muncher. People still in line in cuyhoga, but they got 2200 in, in 2008 about 3600 I believe…not good for BO.

        Correct. 2500 this year. 3500 in ’08. Still well behind pace.

    34000 tickets apparently issued for the Victory Rally in PA! 30000 approx there, could be more as there are outside numbers not included.

    This is PA folks! PA!

    Pew states that their party ID is 36D 32R 29I but if you calculate the numbers it comes to 37D 31R 29I. This is a +6D poll. Now I know they were accurate in 04 and 08 but still…does anyone believe we’re going to have a +6D electorate this time? Just the fact that they would mislead on party ID is interesting to say the least…I think w/ Obama being the first black president and being a man of the left…the left has forgotten any sense of integrity that they might have had left and are trying to push O past the finish line no matter what it may cost them on Nov. 7. Rove, Caddell, Will, Morris, Krauthammer, and the Univ.of Colorado study which has predicted these things accurately the past 8 times cannot all be wrong…

      U of colorado retroactively predicted tne elections back to 80 but it is a new model.

      And yes all those people can all be wrong just as the polls can be wrong

    it would be nice if one reporter, just one, would ask a polling outfit why they think Obama is going to get almost the same percentage of turnout as ’08.

    Of why every state that’s not in contention (read and blue both) has moved 10-15 points towards Romney but not battle ground states..

    Hey, if Obama gets the turnout, everything we’ve been talking about all week will have been wrong.

    it just doesn’t compute with what we’ve seen so far of the, you know, real numbers.

      Your point raises another that I’ve been meaning to mention. Isn’t it a bit convenient that this 0bama effect is limited to battleground states? You know, Romney swings around the Imaginot Firewall into northern blue states and polls well…because nobody responsible for the aforementioned convenient effect planned to need to do it for Pennsylvania, too?
