Inner city Cleveland is pretty bad. Not everyone in Cleveland is, but either the majority or the loudest are quite ignorant (note that means uneducated) and or dangerous.

Cws- have you ever been there?
RJ- a mix. I live in the suburban area, but travel downtown (and or on the OSU college campus) several times a week. Rural now and then. And know plenty of people spread between the three.

If Ohio State University plays @ home the Saturday prior to election and they win (which they did) the incumbent wins Ohio

Kyal is right. In 08, polls under predicted the democratic margin. Also, many polls don't count cellphone only and sporadic voters who lean democratic. Also, even polling firms affiliated with the republicans like waa, ras and gravis did NOT show Romney ahead in their last Ohio polls.

I doubt it. 53%? That would be a shift of about six points before election day. If Romney wins Ohio, it'll be within 2 points, <51%.

Actually, the best metrics I've seen are still undercounting youth and minority votes. In 2008, it meant that Obama exceeded the poll averages. This year, they'll be closer. I'm wagering the 3rd party vote will be higher, now that we have an incumbent. That alone could swing the election to Romney.

Also Utah is one of two states in the union to outlaw all forms of gambling, so you shouldn't be betting at all!

Cool to know that one of the nation's largest cities is "full of idiots." Thanks for the update!

Wacky that the guy from the most religious state in the nation wants us to trust his gut feeling rather than the rigorous work of qualified political scientists!

Actually most polls just call people and ask them how they're voting. More people are saying Obama in Ohio. Extrapolate from that what you will.
11/04/12 2:41 am
voter turnout will be decisively GOP. most polls that show Obama leading are assuming 2008 turnout models. that AIN'T gonna happen. Romney will win by 3 points. and as Ohio goes .... so goes the Presidency.

Obama had 2800 show up to see him
Romney had 30,000 to see him
Romney wins Ohio with 53% of the vote

Wait a sec...I live in Cleveland...
For all of u saying that people from Cleveland/Ohio are stupid, that's really insulting. Why do u say that?
11/03/12 2:57 pm
Then you must have only met one person. Btw were they dumb or did you just find their political choice to be dumb.?

Ohio will probably be pretty close.
I believe Obama is up by 3 in Ohio which of course is subject to change. But Romney is campaigning in Pennsylvania now, which he's down by 6 in. Ohio is so crucial, yet he left for penn. which he probably won't win anyway. Ohio was the better opportunity

Provisional ballots by law can not be counted for 10 days following the election. and Because it is going to be a close contest those few hundred thousand votes are going to be needed, and since Ohio will have enough electoral to swing the election, we are not going to know the winner Tuesday night
11/03/12 1:33 pm
Ohio is not going to be called on Tuesday. On average we have had 200,000 provisional ballots the last few elections, and this year for the first time the Secretary of State of Ohio sent by request 1.3 million absentee ballots out. However, as of now 397,000 have still not been returned.

ok, good enough for me. I'm changing my choice because four4byu seems trustworthy, even if it is completely opposite of what most of the professional analysts are saying.
11/03/12 9:55 am
Poll this morning from Orc & a Ohio newspaper had Obama a 5 point lead. But polls are for strippers!!
Enough of the polls!!!! Can't wait to be done w/ this Tuesday. Ill keep this app til Wednesday so I can rub in faces of all the right wingers on this app then I'm deleting. Spring is here☀????????????

are you rural, suburb, or city? I ask because that your interaction with others makes your assessment more accurate, and the fact that someone who ID's themselves as teaparty that answers honestly, like you did, makes your assessment credible.
11/03/12 9:42 am
where are all the people? if there are more in the cities than spread out in rural areas, then that's where the voting power is.
11/03/12 9:33 am
Right now it seems like Ohio is leaning a little more towards Obama. It's still going to be tight either way.

Milkdud - the state is worth a lot of electoral votes. whereas in the last elections Republicans take the south and midwest (which usually have less votes) while the Democrats take the northeast and Pacific coast (not that many states but lots of electoral votes), Ohio gives a lot of votes and is ..
