Dems Edge GOP in Voter Registration in More Ohio Counties

The Cleveland Plain Dealer ran an article today, October 29, 2008, about the increase in voter registration among Democrats in Ohio's 88 counties. As the graphic below shows, Democrats now out-number Republicans in a lot of Ohio's counties, including Medina County. Now you have to keep in mind that registered votes count for about one-half or less of all voters. This means that while Medina County has more registered Democrats than Republicans, it is still a uphill battle for Democratic candidates, especially in local races. What these numbers mean, though, is that the grade on that hill is a lot less than it used to be.

I think the shaded areas are the "closet" Barack Obama voters. I also believe the pink areas have a whole lot more Barack voters than are willing to say so.

It's a sad thing to know that people are hiding their true thoughts and feelings. People that dare to believe in a black man and a demorcrat toboot are actually afraid to tell their family and their co-workers. Even black people themselves. Heck...I think they are actually afraid of the polling places to go vote.
I will be so proud when he does win and those too ashamed to say they voted for him "the undecideds" can finally come out of the closet.
