From the Romney camp

Here is what Team Romney is putting out:

OH Exit Polling:

It’s showing D+8 which is identical to the historic Dem turnout of 2008. We strongly believe that when votes are actually counted – going to be a much tighter race.


Lines in GOP precincts still 2 hours long – lots of GOP votes to be counted.

A look at the I-4 corridor:

Pasco County:

Republicans – all voted: 89,359

Democrats – all voted: 72,273

Others – all voted: 46,925

We are over 17,000 raw votes ahead of the Democrats before NPAs (how FL identifies independents) are tabulated. This puts us on a 2004 turnout track and is a great indicator of our strength in Tampa Bay.

Volusia County:

Republicans – all voted: 83,292 (38%)

Democrats – all voted: 85,569 (39%)

Others – all voted: 50,171 (23%)

This sets us up to either win or virtually tie in Volusia County. This is catastrophic for the Dems. The I-4 corridor is looking very good for Governor Romney.


Rurals turning out strong –

Carson City 76%

Churchill 77%

Douglas 80%

Elko 76%

Humboldt 81%

In Clark [a Democrat stronghold], not as strong 73%


GOP Butler County (Outside Cincinnati) has 121% Gain Over 2008

According to the exit polls, we’re winning independents by more than 10 points.

In key Cuyahoga County:

There is some evidence in strong Dem precincts that turnout is down, and that in good GOP precincts turnout is up and outperforming the county overall turnout number.

Obviously we aren’t going to win Cuyahoga County but this is about getting our votes out of there, and seeing if they get theirs.


Stronger performance in 2008 in Richmond collar counties: Henrico and Chesterfield and Hanover

Huge turnout in coal country (they aren’t voting for Obama)

We’re hitting the numbers we need to in NoVA

According to exits – we’re winning independents by more than 10 points


We are at our vote goal in Madison
Over goal among middle aged voters
Winning independents by almost 7 points.
