Wow! A complete sweep. Although the polling sample has 8% more Democrats voting than GOP (sounds about right). Also, the poll found that 35% of respondents are voting a straight DEM ticket. The last poll was 9/24/06.

Lets just hope that the rain holds off for election day.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  Great! A couple of details to add: (5+ / 0-)
    1. Note the Columbus Dispatch's incredulous headline, "Could it be this bad for the GOP?"  Priceless.
    1. Their web graphic emphasizes the sweep and the margins.
    1. Technical point: 1541 registered voters. They've got nice breakdownsby gender, age, etc.

    Ohio will provide some of the best moments on the early parts of Tuesday night.

    mason dixon has the ohio senate race with brown with a 6 point lead.He does not have a 24 point lead, although he will win going away.

    •  What about timing? (0+ / 0-)

      Wasn't this poll carried out after the GOP wrote off DeWine and left him to run attack ads on his own money?

      Also, the last utility bill will be the first one with some seriously cold nights in it, and given the long running Brown message of DeWine getting big contributions from energy companies, that will take a bite of its own.

      However, there is a good chance that the difference comes from different likely voter breakdowns, either a different screen, or different people coming up in the screen, due to different timing. In most parts of the country, and quite definitely in Ohio, if independent voters turn out in numbers, its a Democratic wave.

    this is a little off the subject, but we looked a bit flat on the "O" against the Fighting Illini.  The boys better step it up notch on the 18th, don't you think?

  •  Look at the breakdown on 2004 Presidential votes (2+ / 0-)

    So when I clicked on the link, I saw the rest of the poll which included this question:

    For whom did you vote in 2004 for President?

    George W. Bush     673    23% D     21% R
    John Kerry         749    96% D     4   R

    So if this poll has any validity, it seems like Kerry won and Bush lost in 2004, given the votes of the exact same poll takers that predict a sweep for the Dems in Ohio.

    Also you might consider a better diary title, as your diary is important.

  •  62-38! (0+ / 0-)

    WOW!  Assuming it will be much closer, say 55-45.  Still a blowout, and it will really help with the congressional candidates.

    GOTV Ohio!

  •  Oh (0+ / 0-)

    I'm sure hoping some of that malcontent is oozing across the state line down here into Kentucky.  I'd like to see some R's lose their jobs here Tuesday.

    But I'm glad that Ohio's electorate (and America's) has awakened.  I was afraid that we might sleepwalk right into a civil war, or a Grand Depression (to be followed by a civil war).

  •  Glad Ohio's seen the light (0+ / 0-)

    I wish Ohio had seen the light in 2004, but I'm glad they're at least voting the right way now.

    Frankly, if any state had a right to hate the GOP, it's Ohio.

    They put Bush over the top, and all they got for it was some big time political scandals, a battered economy and many dead reservists.

    I hope the Ohio Dem party can build on thier successes this year to run the GOP out of the state.

  •  I really would love this to be true (0+ / 0-)

    It just seems way too optimistic to me. But if those leads are even half right, that's great news. I hope that poll doesn't cause any Democrats to get overconfident and stay home.

  •  It's supposed to rain on Election Day? (0+ / 0-)

    Just great...

  •  The Cleve Plain Dealer poll is less optimistic! (0+ / 0-)

    It gives these numbers:

    Strickland ahead 56-37
    Brown up by 50-44
    Dann and Montgomery tied at 44
    Brunner over Hartman 41-32
    Sykes up narrowly over Taylor by 40-37
    Cordray ahead of O'Brien by 47-35

    Turnout could determine several of the down ticket races!

    I'm not saying this poll is more accurate but we need to see both.

    I'd love to see us pick up all the statewide offices and several House seats!

  •  We need to remember the referenda (0+ / 0-)

    in Ohio that had huge leads and mysteriously ended up "losing" not so long ago. That set off alarm bells with me. Ohio is the most corrupt state in the nation and Republicans will try to steal with impunity.

    Democrats, vigilance!!
