Cincinnati.com - Ohio Presidential vote by county

Early vote tally in Ohio, the most important state in deciding elections so they say, Mitt Romney has a 92,000 vote lead.

This is probably a glimpse at how tonight unfolds in all but the bluest of states. Early voting has a tendency to favor Democrats. If Romney starts off the day well ahead in Ohio, and he is campaigning there today, I like his chances.

Some precincts and counties in Ohio have reported 100% of their vote. I did think that was odd.

I don't think so.


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.

The Obama voters are still in bed. No need to get up early, they've got all day.

Awh, well that explains the 100% reporting counties. Funny how the "dummy data" gets entered into those articles.

I still like Mitt's chances.

Mods please close this thread.

It's not like they have to go to work or anything.

It is quite interesting that the Cincinnati Enquirer which has a long, storied history of fine journalism would allow a story on such an important topic on a critically important day to be published unless it was properly sourced and vetted through the editorial process; it is actually quite shocking given the Enquirer's strong reputation. Might the paper's corporate owners at Gannett have stepped in and forced a retraction for their own purposes?

I've been up since 6:00 am this morning. Guess where I was since then? I've been at work.

I wondered the same thing. Perhaps it's time to take a screen-shot and compare it to tonight's results.
