107. R.H.Phillips interpreted SW Ohio results as vote-SWITCHING (not padding)
See his SW Ohio (Butler, Warren and Clermont) estimate at http://www.freepress.org/images/departments/Vote_Count_...

As for the Dispatch poll versus the results on issues 2-3, DUers who currently live in Ohio would have more insight than I. I have found the comments by Ms. Toad persuasive:

"It was OH voters, but not those who lean Republican - voters who lean in a lot of different ways killed issues 2-5. More accurately, the amendments committed suicide. Read here: http://www.reformohionow.org/downloads/ron_amendments.p ... . Pages 1-8 were actually on the ballot as summaries of the amendments, which can be found on pages 9-19. I voted against 2 of them, and more than half of my liberal friends voted against all 4 (Most switching from leaning Yes to voting No upon reading the actual text of the amendments or a summary for the first time in the 24 hours preceding the election." - Ms. Toad

However, I do agree that the new Diebolds, in 44 of the 88 Ohio counties, are a very big worry. Do you, happen to know whether or not the new machines have voter-verified paper receipts?

Cheers.
