Romney Leads Obama in Early Voting 52% to 45% — “Reagan Excitement Level”

We are going to win one week from today!

Listening to Stephanie Desperation Cutter and David Panic Axelrod from the Sunday talk shows would have us all believe that President Obama has all but won this election. Cutter and Axelrod seem to be deeper encapsulated in the bubble than President Obama! Ms. Cutter is straining so hard to tow the line for Mr. Obama that she has lost all credibility (she blew by Axelrod after the first debate when she declared Obama the winner! Classic!). Even the TV pundits strain to help her out as she obviously believes her own advertising now (she talks and blinks faster every time she is on TV these days and I don’t think it is the caffeine). Stephanie Cutter obviously loves her White House job!

Remember, Senator Obama beat Senator McCain by only six points in 2008; that’s it! Six points! And that was during a year when everything was going his way; with the wind to his back and atmospheric expectations. After all, promises were in abundance fueled by the dreamy platitudes, faith in the future, and hope beyond hyperbole. Change for all!

There are so many variables and factors at play in 2012 that could make a huge difference in the final election results. Consider these: Obama got 95% of all African American votes; what if the same number of black voters turn out but only 80% or 70% vote for him? (see African American Bishop Jackson’s plea here). Many first time young voters that supported Obama in 2008 have been completely disillusioned by his many failures; what if 40% of these just don’t show up in 2012 or decide to take action for Romney? Remember the women voters? Obama told us all year he had them locked up and was leading by 20 to 35 points by some estimates; now Romney and Obama are tied with the women vote. What if 3, 5, or 9 percent of all Obama voters of 2008 just decide to stay home this election? Obama got a high percentage of the Jewish vote in 2008; what if the Jewish vote is split evenly this time? There are many other variables we could explore. I think we are going to see some big surprises this year.

Fact: More Republicans will vote in 2012 than in 2008. Yesterday, Gallup reported that Romney leads Obama in early voting 52% to 45%. Breitbart writer John Nolte writes:

Romney’s early voting lead in Gallup may not jive with the CorruptMedia narrative, but it does with actual early vote totals that have been released and show Romney’s early vote totals either beating Obama in swing states such as Colorado and Florida or chipping away at the President’s advantage in the others. For example, here’s what we know about Ohio’s early voting numbers, thus far [from Politico]:

But here is what we do know: 220,000 fewer Democrats have voted early in Ohio compared with 2008. And 30,000 more Republicans have cast their ballots compared with four years ago. That is a 250,000-vote net increase for a state Obama won by 260,000 votes in 2008.
Other than the fact that this is Gallup, another reason to embrace this poll is due to its very large sample size of 3,312 registered voters.

Ronald Reagan’s Treasury secretary, Bay Buchanan yesterday compared the look and feel of Romney’s 2012 campaign to that of the Reagan 1980 campaign:

“The intensity level is remarkable,” says Buchanan, who was also the treasurer of Reagan’s presidential primary campaigns in 1976 and 1980 and national treasurer of Reagan’s general election presidential campaigns in 1980 and in 1984.

“It’s not only showing up in the polls, but if you go out in the states as I have, in Florida and in Wisconsin, the excitement level is something that I haven’t seen since Reagan,” she says.

At a rally in Colorado, “The forum sat 10,000 people and 10,000 people packed in there and they had to turn people away,” Buchanan says. “In Leesburg, Va., there were 8,000 people in the line to get in, and it was a mile long down into the main part of town.”

Buchanan says Romney’s campaign has become a movement.
As a result, “From my personal experience, the excitement and enthusiasm of our supporters is equal to what I saw during Ronald Reagan’s first campaign,” Buchanan says. “We’re now a movement to change America, and Mitt Romney heads it up.”

Finally, how much influence do Israeli citizens have with the Jewish voter here in America? I have no idea, but consider the fact that 57% of Israelis prefer Romney to 22% that prefer Obama:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney leads President Barack Obama by a whopping 35 percentage points among Israeli Jews when it comes to who they think will best look out for Israel’s interests, according to a new poll from Tel Aviv University/Israel Democracy Institute.

Rarely have I given my opinion here in MRC about polling or surveys. The reason being that statistics can be manipulated in so many diverse ways and unless one is willing to become an expert analyst he will just be manipulated. That said, I think we should completely ignore all polls in this last stretch of seven days, no matter how positive they may be. Governor Romney is bringing it. We need to work harder than we have ever worked to bring it in our neck of the woods.

    Oh, yes! this is not ’08. Landslide Romney/Ryan victory! I’m excited. Let’s keep the momentum all the way to the White House 1600 Pennsylvania, Ave!
    Pew Research has this poll yesterday:-Republican Turnout advantage (likely voters) Romney 76 Obama 62

    Cutter has no credibility. I never heard of her speaking the truth. Yesterday, Cutter said that “they’ve captialized early voting, enthusiasm is in their side”. She’s a blatant liar.

    I’m pretty sure Axelrod never expected to face off Gov Romney in Nov. What he had in mind was another weak candidate. I was watching Axelrod closely in early primaries, and he completely dismissed, underestimated Gov Romney. He thought he had the election in the bags long time ago.
    I think Gov Romney’s entire election process will be a case study for a long time.

    Let’s keep the momentum going…….
    Vote Romney/Ryan!!!!

  2. Susan says:

    I agree AfricanforRomney. Remember when Mitt named Paul as his VP choice? The Obama team was gleeful. GLEEFUL! Ooops

  3. ccr says:

    Agree, Victor! While there are many optimistic signs……….we take NOTHING for granted! We continue all efforts until there is a victory!

    I’m actually praying for such a clear, decisive victory that voter fraud and cheating is irrelevant. Perhaps I’m being naive….but that would be such a blessing!!

  4. gloria says:

    Yessssssssssssssssss to Romney November 6 2012.

  5. Angel Shelburne says:

    Join your faith for a Real Recovery & to Restore America!

  6. jantaylorriley says:

    Romney in a landslide, restoring America for the next 8 years, with the same consistency and competence he has delivered everywhere he has ever been called to serve.

    “220,000 fewer Democrats have voted early in Ohio compared with 2008. And 30,000 more Republicans have cast their ballots compared with 4 years ago. That is a 250,000-vote net increase for a state Obama won by 260000 in 2008.”

    The above quote from Vic is very significant. Not only are the Republicans MORE enthusiastic and driven to get to the polls and vote, but the Democrats are LESS enthusiastic about voting this election cycle. Even if Democrats don’t cross over and vote for Romney, they won’t for Obama.

    My husband just had lunch with a customer who voted for Obama in 2008, but will NOT vote this election cycle. I ran into an old high school classmate who voted for Obama in 2008 and was angry over his anti-business policies. I doubt he will cast his vote for Obama.

    It isn’t any wonder that the Democrats are concerned about the crowds showing up for Romney and Ryan. No wonder that Romney had tears and prayed for strength while in Colorado. He knew down deep what this turn out meant for him.

    “Who is going to win this election?”That is what Hannity asked Michael Barone after a long discussion about the polls on his show the other day. Barone answered with confidence and assertiveness………”Mitt Romney”.

    We should not get complacent, but we can certainly feel good about the numbers!


  8. Shane Ownbey says:

    We got MITT Romney!
    Of course we’re gonna win!!!!!
    I love Mitt Romney!! :)

  9. Kevin P says:

    you are going to lose!

  10. Cathy says:

    Prayers go out to the storm victims. Hope the healing begins soon.

    Gov. Romney will be an awesome President especially in national disasters. He cares and we will be in good hands.

    Please get out and VOTE for Gov. Romney. He will make you proud.

  11. PT says:

    Does anyone else think Obama will blame Bush for the hurricane? OR, will he apologize to it. Just kidding, of course. Ü

  12. Ann says:

    Mittmomentum is happening now!!!! He has turned his campaign bus into a supplies bus for the storm victims, and demonstrating what he has done his whole life: Help people in need!!!!! Obama helps people when the cameras are rolling! I can’t wait until a Congressional investigation gets to the bottom of the Libya murders either! Too bad the mainstream media are trying to “hold the lid” on that scandal until after the election….. unlike Watergate when hundreds of news stories were published and TV was full of it!
    Mitt Romney LOOKS presidential, because he IS presidential! MITTMOMENTUM IS EXCITING!!!!!! GO ROMNEY AND RYAN!!!

  13. Bob West says:

    Obama’s team does not care how they win.
    Be on guard, team.
    Do not have false confidence.
    Keep the momentum up.
    Talk to friends, family, get out the Romney vote.

  14. Becky says:

    In response to PT, he probably already has blamed Bush.
