If you watched only the RCP averages, the race in Ohio was very close. Indeed, most agreed, "too close to call." But other considerably more accurate polls were showing a strong Romney momentum in Ohio; a "surge" if you will. And, those polls showed Romney gaining the lead by considerable margins late in October.

Secondly, if you lived here, you couldn't miss the absence of Obama/Biden yard signs, and the plethora of Roney/Ryan signs. Things looked good for our state, and also given that our state recently threw off a corrupt Democrat governor, along with his "people" in the legislature, it seemed to many of us here that, despite what the Legacy Media was reporting, Romney owned Ohio.

There was also a noticible difference in the size of the crowds the Romney drew. He drew huge crowds that dwarfed Obama's.

So, what happened? These two articles, I believe, provide the answer.
"Allegedly, volunteer poll workers in the Buckeye state reported seeing "van loads of Ohio residents born in Somalia" being ferried in to vote early. Once at the polls, in lieu of Republican translators and UN poll watchers, the Democrats themselves were providing Somali/Arabic translation. Seems the Obama campaign is getting out the vote by teaching Somali immigrants the ins and outs of the voting process.
Witnesses at the Columbus, Ohio Morse Road polling center reported Somalis arriving in buses, being handed a slate card, and being told by helpful Democrats to vote "brown," for Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), all the way down the card."

"In this unproductive week of finger pointing and teeth gnashing, I am prepared to argue that Indiana tells us potentially more about America's future than Ohio.
In the week before the election, I was invited to speak at my alma mater, Purdue University. As I drove around West Lafayette, what caught my eye was the absence of Obama signs. I did not see one, not even in the faculty neighborhoods. As Obama's unpopularity grew during the last four years, his team at some point decided to concede Indiana. From their perspective, Indiana lacked one tactical asset that Ohio had -- early voting.
Early voting is a boon for the vote harvesters. The vote harvester's mission is to gather unthinking collectives of potential voters -- nursing home residents, college students, skid-row dwellers, recent immigrants -- and get them to vote. Harvesting does not necessarily mean fraud, but it clearly encourages the same. In James O'Keefe's Project Veritas videos, we saw how easy it was for even a congressman's son -- in this case, Pat Moran, son of Jim -- to cross the line from harvesting to cheating.
Early voting makes harvesting all the more economical. Fewer people on the ground can get more accomplished. At an Obama rally at Ohio State, my friends in Columbus tell me, the Obama campaign provided a steady stream of busses to take rally-goers right to the polls, one stop shopping."

Haha, what a sore loser you are. Also, gotta love how people of supposed Somali ethnicity are automatically "pirates." Oh, but you're not a racist, right?

What i find amazing is even in the face of defeat, they still continue to rely on the same discredited, flawed news sources. They can't accept their policies and leaders were rejected; no, it must be the other guy cheated...

Here are the election results in convenient emoticon format:

I voted for the other guy. 2 thoughts:

1. Republicans need to stop whining because the Dems have faster and more efficient systems to get their voters to the polls. Repubs can rent buses as well. Get yourselves organized to get people to the polls. Just freakin' do it.

2. If Dems can rent buses to take people to the polls, they can rent buses to take people to get a picture ID. This business of showing utility bills or writing down a Social Security number is ridiculous. Everybody knows its ridiculous and everybody knows that it doesn't disenfranchise anybody. Just prove you are who you say you are. Just freakin' do it.

You guys don't ever give up.

Here are all of the polls from Ohio:

Please point out the ones that Romney was "surging" in.

Totally agree. Columbus does have a fairly large Somolian population; but no resident that I know - had any thought of Romney winning this state - despite the fact that the OP felt great excitement during the Romney rallys.
