  •  But the Voter Suppression is Serious Here, There's (0+ / 0-)

    still no non-working-hours early voting unlike 2008, and they've got Obama last on the ballot underneath quite a few indy/3rd party candidates with Mitt on top. Plus they've changed and eliminated many precincts in blue zones and they're shorting voting machines.

    If Obama's +1 on election day the state will be called early for Mitt.

      The situation you describe doesn't sound materially worse than 2004, and that year Bush's margin in Ohio was about the same as the pre-election polling.

      In important respects, the situation seems materially better than in 2004. Some of the worst machines have been replaced, and lots of people are voting early or absentee. Ohio has ballot rotation; I think you will find that in most precincts Obama is above Romney, not on the bottom.

      I'm guessing that Ohio will have the best election protection operation ever seen -- and I'm guessing that it will have plenty to do. But I don't see how you get to: "If Obama's +1 on election day the state will be called early for Mitt."

      Election protection: there's an app for that!
