  •  300k provisional ballots yet to (11+ / 0-)

    be counted and the CNN site says still 10% of the vote to be counted (might include a lot of absentees). When all is said and done, Obama's margin will probably grow to 2.5% may be 3% when rounded.

    I never fully trusted Ohio and neither did the Obama campaign, which is why they went after all the other swing states.  The only reason Romney conceded is because Nevada, Colorado and Iowa came in for Obama by comfortable margins during the 90 minute period after they considered contesting the OH results.

      I don't trust Husted and his pals in Columbus, but what they were doing was overt. We saw their plan. It's not in manipulating cast votes. That was a fantasy. I don't know that that many absentees remain to be counted. That would be mostly overseas and military votes, a not ver large group (A majority of the absentee vote is included in the initial count). I am processing provisionals in Cleveland and a bulk of them — in both the upscale suburbs and the more urban districts — are good. I was sort of afraid of the number of bad ones in the inner city, but so far, not seeing that.
