Massive Decrease in
Early and Absentee
Voting—in Chicago

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:Bubbasuncle, 11/4/2012 8:07:31 PM

The Illinois Republican party claims early and absentee voting has precipitously fallen since the 2008 presidential election. According to the numbers, at this point in 2008, there were 260,376 early voters and 304,290 absentee voters. Now, the party maintains, there are 195,064 early voters and 46,232 absentee voters. That's a loss of 57 percent of voters, since the last election. This, the Illinois Republican party says, is a terrible sign for Democrats. "Chicago is the heart and soul of the Democratic Party," says Illinois Republican party chair Pat Brady. "You can't get much more solid blue than Chicago

The Tuesday National Weather Service precipitation forecast shows a lot of dry states on Tuesday except South Carolina through Florida and Wisconsin, which looks like it will be getting terrible weather across the state, Eastern Iowa, a lot of Michigan, and Norther Illinois, including Chicago. Could be good for Romney, but he really needs Colorado, too.

If America keeps Obama our future is far more certain than if we elect Romney - Obama will bring certain ruin. Hard to imagine so much is on the line.

From Chicago North west Rockford area I can attest that in rural area there is unprecedented early voting.
Yesterday the last day there were 1 hour lines.
In my are we never had any lines at all.
I am sure 90% of votes are RR votes.

How absolutely delicious if Illinois, home of Barack Obama went to Romney! What a startling repudiation of Mr. O's policies!

We in Illinois have been strangled by the Chicago style politics of Cook County and State Senate Majority Leader Mike Madigan, who is Illinois' very own Harry Reid.

He has blocked any kind of fiscal reform and has taken our state to the brink of bankruptcy. We need to get rid of him and maybe if turnout is down in Chicago, we'll have that opportunity.

Lot's of anti-Obama ads on Chicago radio...I FF all TV ads so I don't know about that.

My Southside Irish extended family, all police , firefighters and plumbers are now talking Romney. Obama taking on the Catholic Church is a MAJOR factor and the loyalty they always felt went to the Daley's, definitely NOT Rahm.

It was the first family get together in years where I felt I could speak my mind and believe me Benghazi was a HOT topic. I wish my parents were still here to witness their "enlightenment."

If Democrats don't produce in the City...the rest of the state...the RED part, will prevail.

Remember we elected a Repulican Senator and the Governor won by in a squeak. Brady should have contested.

Nothing good has happened here in a long time. Everybody is fed up...mad as heck.

Outside of the City proper we are the same people as our Midwestern brothers and sisters.

Black Chicago leaders have been angry at Obama for two years, and it has grown. And black ministers are furious over the gay marriage endorsement. Two things will come from that: many Chicago blacks will not vote, and of those who do vote many will only vote in the down-ticket races, not the presidential race. Add in a bunch of angry Chicago Irish, Italian, Polish, and Hispanic Catholics, and you get the ingredients for a perfect storm of anti-Obama sentiment on election day. They don't have to vote for Romney. All they have to do is NOT vote for Obama, and the tsunami of Romney votes from suburban Cook County and downstate will deliver Illinois for Romney. No one is polling Illinois. No one sees it coming. Watch.

I would be pleased but astounded if Romney won. What I see as more likely is a razor thin victory for Obama akin to the 0.18% margin by which Walter Mondale carried Minnesota in 1984. For Obama to lose outright would cost the Democrat machine to lose face and they still control all the levers of power.

I live in conservative DuPage County, one of the collar counties surrounding Chicago. None of the collar counties will vote for Obama, and neither will Cook County, which surrounds the City of Chicago itself. All my friends that live in towns within Cook County can't stand Obama. Keep an eye on Illinois. The Obama regime might wake up to a very big surprise, right in their own backyard.

It will be interesting to see the races in the newly drawn congressional districts and several of the state senate races. Because the city lost population in the last census, some of the Dems lost a portion of their safe Chicago base that gets gerrymandered into every seat. They are running a bit more now in the suburbs and even local Dems are getting disgusted with the state's fiscal demise. They are getting tired of jobs moving out of state, many aren't going very far just across the borders to Indiana and Wisconsin taking jobs away.

SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine, Ukraine - Masked gunmen stormed the parliament of Ukraine´s strategic Crimea region as Russian fighter jets screamed above the border, while Ukraine´s newly formed government pledged to prevent a national breakup with the strong backing of the West - the stirrings of a potentially dangerous confrontation reminiscent of Cold War brinksmanship. Moscow reportedly granted shelter to Ukraine´s fugitive president, Viktor Yanukovych, who was said to be holed up in a luxury government retreat and to have scheduled a news conference Friday near the Ukrainian border.

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

His fumble on a sack turned into an Oklahoma touchdown with 47 seconds left, sealing the Sooners’ 45-31 victory over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl on Thursday night. In a painful twist, McCarron ended his illustrious college career by losing twice in a row after going 36-2 in his first 38 games at Alabama.

Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public
