My apologies for the short diary but I felt it was important to pass along this message from Jeremy Bird in the Obama campaign regarding what's really happening on the ground in Ohio. It's all about getting the vote out, and that's exactly what is occurring. Big time. Excepts from the memo below:

1. All public polling shows that the President has a double-digit lead among those who
have voted:
 --Survey USA found that Obama leads by 19 points (57/38) among those who have
voted already.
-- Rasmussen, a Republican pollster, found that Obama leads by 29 points (63/34)
among those who have voted already.
-- The Wall Street Journal/NBC poll found that Obama leads by 26 points (63/37)
among those who have voted already.-- PPP found that Obama leads by 52 points (76/24) among those who have voted already.

2. Registration numbers strongly favor President Obama:
-- Four in five Ohioans (81 percent) who have registered to vote in 2012 are either
female, younger than 30, or African-American or Latino – all demographics that
strongly favor President Obama.
-- Nearly two-thirds (64 percent) of Ohioans who have registered to vote in 2012 – and
the same percentage among those who have already voted – live in counties that
President Obama won in 2008.

3. Early vote numbers strongly favor President Obama:
-- More than half (55 percent) of the early-vote ballots requested so far this year have
been requested by women, 3 percentage points greater than 2008 early voters.
-- 582,402 ballots have been requested this year from precincts that Obama won in
2008, 33,414 more than in from precincts that McCain won.
--  The total number of votes already cast this year (both by mail and in-person) from
precincts Obama won in 2008 is 261,304 – 55,636 more than from precincts McCain
won.
-- Democrats’ margin over Republicans in votes cast has increased by 21,792 compared
with this point four years ago.

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.
