    sweet.
    From the cited article:

    UPDATE (11/01/2012):

    McDonald’s site has updated their Ohio early voting numbers, so I conducted a re-examination to see if the pattern I discovered still holds. It does.

    There are now 23 counties in which the percentage of the 2008/2012 early voting ratio equals or exceeds 80 percent. McCain carried 17 of them, and the six Obama carried are still those in the eastern, blue collar part of the state. Cincinnati exurban counties Brown and Warren now report their early votes equal 99 and 93 percent, respectively, of the 2008 early vote percentage.


    Large, big margin Obama counties remain at the bottom of the early voting ratio. Summit (Akron), Lucas (Toledo), Cuyahoga (Cleveland) and Franklin (Columbus) are all near the bottom of this analysis, with between 67 and 69 percent of the 2008 early vote percentage already cast in 2012.
    House. Of. Cards.

    You mention Regan, who had a twenty percent growth in the GDP during his time. You mention Bush who had a 500 billion deficit per year in comparison to the 5 trillion dollar deficit of Obama. Speaking of that when was the last time Obama produce a national budget, not to mention his proposal for the next year was completely shot down by Legislative branch. Oh yeah let us not forget the Obamacare is 87% underfunded already and instead of premiums dropping by 2500 as promised they have actually risen above the 3000 mark. Obama GDP has been an ugly 2 percent, when factored in with population growth and inflation this number is actually negative. Better yet what about all the money Obama has put into Green energy, billions of tax payer dollars, where are the fruits of those dollars? They are tied up in bankruptcy court. As it stands now (and fact check this because I am shooting from the hip with slightly old data) Obama has payed over 200 million dollars for every job he has created. Give me 200 million and I will create more than one job thatís for certain. Speaking of created jobs letís look at the unemployment rate. It finally dropped below 8 percent after 3.5 years. Oh yeah but that number is flawed as well because there are far less Americans participating in the job force versus four years ago. People have given up, but take the 2009 job force numbers plug them into todays economy and you have an unemployment rate north of 14 percent. The net total job creation of Obama, taking jobs lost versus jobs produced is ~61,000. Do you want to look at the Regan numbers to compare.
    Donít get too high on the saddle with GDP spending you are likely to fall off.
    Feel free to educate and critique me.
