Romney up 92K in OH early voting? Update: Gannett pulls link; Update: EV up 14% in 2008 McCain counties, down in Obama counties; Update: Gannett “regrets the error”

posted at 9:21 am on November 6, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Update: The data is still up at the Gannett site, but they’ve pulled the link from the front page.  Justin Higgins says that OH won’t release EV data separately:

Original post follows, but if this turns out to be wrong, Gannett may have some explaining to do about why they put it up on their website’s front page.

Update II: Via MKH, Cook Report’s Dave Wasserman crunched the numbers and figures the GOP has achieved parity in Ohio early voting:

Update III: Since I owe you some good news on this topic, here’s Josh Kraushaar, via John Nolte:

That’s a huge enthusiasm advantage.

Update IV: Gannett finally issued a retraction and an apology:

A Cincinnati.com front-page link to a chart with dummy data, created as a design template for election results, was inadvertently posted early Tuesday morning.

It purported to show early voting totals in Ohio counties. However, no votes have been counted yet – by law counting doesn’t start until the polls close.

Cincinnati.com regrets the error.

======================

So says Gannett’s Cincinnati.com, which has the data from the state government posted at its site this morning. I put the question mark on the data because I don’t see anything up yet at the Ohio Secretary of State’s website, but occasionally the media will get updates prior to the website. According to the data, Mitt Romney already has 697,143 votes before the polls opened a couple of hours ago, while Barack Obama only has 605,546, a difference of almost 92,000 votes.  The data is time-stamped at 2:03 ET this morning, and the link on the front page of the site reads, “Early voters: How Ohio has voted.”

A few counties have not yet reported any early-voting results, but one county in particular looks huge.  Cuyahoga, which includes Cleveland, should be a Democratic stronghold, and perhaps the one area where Democratic early-voting efforts should have produced their biggest lead.  Instead, Romney has a lead of about 14,000 votes already, 127,570 to 113,373.  In Hamilton County, where Cincinnati itself is located, Romney leads by over 5,000, 29,969 to 24,808.  A quick scan of the data shows Romney leading in every county with more than 25,000 EVs.

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.

Obama’s concession speech will go something like this:”I know a lot of you expected this in November, but here in February, we finally have all of the votes recounted – twice. By hand. When an election is this close, you can’t be too careful – but it seems that 346 to 192 was in fact correct.

I’m in North Carolina but even anecdotal evidence is something. I always vote at 10 am so I can compare elections. In 2006 and 2008 I went right in, voted, and left. In 2008 there wasn’t even anyone else on the more than dozen voting machines. In 2010 I had to wait in a short line (9th person in line to be exact) while all the machines were occupied. We all know how those elections turned out. I live in suburban Charlotte (union county) which went to Bush 70-30 and McCain 63-36.

“Stay Calm” ~ That avalanche of Republican voters storming the polls are just a figment of your, (liberal), imagination.

“Stay Calm” ~ This was the official response from the White House on 9/11/12 to the Patriots in Benghazi.

“Stay Calm” ~ Yes, you will be arrested of you attempt to vote twice.

“Stay Calm” ~ Just because Mitt Romney’s won Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, doesn’t mean we’re not counting ALL 57 STATES!

Rovin on November 6, 2012 at 9:36 AM

If you live in Northern VA, get out to vote. The polling places are PACKED. There were a lot of 0′bama voters… made me tense. What sustains me is the thought of them scratching their heads tomorrow, wondering WTF happened.

Go Mitt!

To top it off, I learned that I was the subject of redistricting. I can’t vote that pantload Gerry Connoly out of office. VA’s 11th congressional looks very “Gerry”mandered. I’m now in the more rural 1st CD.

Not sure how Ohio does it, but in Texas the absentee count normally doesn’t begin until mid-Election Day, even in the state’s biggest counties (they try to get the early vote counts done before 7 p.m., when the Election Day count gets underway, and while the early numbers come out first, they don’t post until after the polls have closed).

It would be nice if the numbers were true, but I doubt it.

A little false data to suppress the R vote?

IMHO, NO WAY the R vote will be surpressed. Think about the state of the union. The economy, Bengazi, Obamacare. These people have been waiting 4 long years to end this administration and nothing will stop them or make them hesitate to vote RR today!

Re: the update- Was it true, but a mistaken post or what? I’m more than a little scattered today.

After looking at those numbers, that must be a test page or something. They have one county with every single early vote going to Romney. Not gonna happen.

The Enquirer sort of dropped the ball here…
