  •  not necessarily true, the RV/LV split favored GOP (0+ / 0-)

    in 2004. In the end, it meant "undecideds broke for Bush"... but what really happened is that more RVs started expressing their intent to vote as election day approached. That's what we're seeing in the polls right now.

    •  It does appear the GOP votes at a higher % (0+ / 0-)

      I just did a quick down and dirty calculation from the 2008 Ohio Presidential Election result. I wanted to know what was the voting percent for the most Democratic and most Republican precincts.

      Precincts where one candidate wins at least 75% of the vote
      * McCain wins: 78% of registered voters voted
      * Obama wins: 57% of registered voters voted

      So yes it dos indeed appear that the Dems have more room for improvement than the GOP.
