Quick Election Update

I just heard on the radio that the article I cited earlier about Romney's internal polling being leaked was inaccurate, and that his internal polling information was not been released.  Just to set the record straight.

It is still interesting to note that the Obama-Biden campaign is already positioning themselves for a loss in Ohio, claiming pre-emptively that fraud would be the only possible explanation.  You know, because there's absolutely no way that a state that is widely considered an extremely tight toss-up, and showing higher than expected early voting returns for Romney couldn't possibly be a loss unless fraud was involved.  Speaking of Ohio, Gannett news accidentally posted numbers that show Romney ahead in the early voting by 92,000 votes...then they took it down.  Oops!  Didn't mean to show anything other than a landslide Obama victory!  Here's the analysis on this bit that I think it correct:

This may be a very big deal, if these numbers are correct.  Obama had a big lead in EVs before Election Day in 2008, which allowed him to withstand the GOP's better turnout on the day itself.  Frankly, Team Romney might have been thrilled to be trailing by 92K at this juncture.  To be ahead in early voting portends a big Republican turnout in the Buckeye State, and perhaps an early night for all of us.  We'll see, but this is the first indication of unforeseen Romney strength in this election.

Let's hope so.  We'll know soon enough.

Democrat Spokes-zombie Stephanie Cutter is sending out pre-emptive tweets to calm the angsty Democrat masses to not pay attention to early reports of exit polls all over that might be showing higher Romney turnout.  She claims their early voting returns are the cause of the lower than expected numbers.  For once, I would agree with her that no one should bother paying attention to the exit polls numbers, but for an entirely different reason.  More analysis here.

In continuing news of Democrat voter fraud, we have reports in Iowa of people signing ballots for other people, and "non-partisan" group whose mission is to register new voters shredding Republican registrations.  This is the same organization that had a number of members indicted for voter fraud after the 2008 election.

In Philadelphia, Republican election officials were thrown out of a number of polling places:

The Philadelphia GOP is reporting that court appointed Minority (read GOP) Inspectors are being thrown out of polling locations in several Wards.

These Inspectors are election officials - again, court appointed -- and are reportedly being thrown out by the Head Judges of Elections (these Judges are elected Democrats) and being replaced by Democrats.

This happened in 15 precincts.  A judge formally ordered them to be reinstated, but perhaps now we understand better why the Black Panthers are standing guard outside Philly polling places.  Also in Philly, we see polling places with wall murals of Obama.  But relax, there's no voter fraud.

Now, as for reports of fraud benefiting Republicans, we have the following:

*crickets chirping*

Moving on, I couldn't resist posting this little quote from Bill Clinton on a campaign stop yesterday concerning a Romney ad suggesting Barack Obama's auto bailout hurt America:

"You're laughing, but who wants a president who will knowingly, repeatedly tell you something he knows is not true?

Says the guy who was impeached by the House of Representatives for lying under oath.

More updates as the day goes on...
