Team Obama: We're winning Ohio among early voters

By Jonathan Easley - 10/19/12 07:39 AM ET

The Obama campaign on Friday circulated a memo claiming to be well ahead of Mitt Romney among early voters in the critical battleground state of Ohio.

“Today we are ahead of where we were at this time against John McCain — and ahead of Mitt Romney,” national field director Jeremy Bird wrote. “Republicans are similarly talking up their ground game and early vote numbers, but their assertions rest on much shakier ground.”

No Republican presidential candidate has ever lost Ohio and gone on to win the election.

Republicans have touted their ground game in the crucial state, claiming they've closed the gap with Democrats.

President Obama has led in Ohio throughout this cycle, but polls have tightened in recent weeks. According to the Real Clear Politics average of polls, Obama leads Romney by 2.4 percentage points in the Buckeye State.

I'm Ashamed (of Ohio Voter Suppression)

Letters to the Editor
August 10, 2012

Columbus Dispatch,

In the 2012 Ohio Voter Information Guide Jon Husted says:  “The Secretary of State’s office is committed to ensuring that each Ohioan who is eligible to cast a ballot is able to do so.”

We learned, in the 2004 election, that 5 hour lines at the polls on Election Day kept some of those, who were eligible, from casting their ballot.  That was corrected in 2008 by allowing early in-person voting.
