Will the rumors that Mitt Romney's son owns voting machines influence the election results in Ohio?


There has been controversy over the presidential election results in key swing states in recent years (Florida in 2000 and Ohio in 2004). This year, rumors are already spreading in the state of Ohio that could have citizens questioning the final results. While the rumors that Mitt Romney's son owns voting machines are not true, the facts in the case still have some voters asking questions about the validity of the results even before most votes are cast. Do you think that these rumors will have an effect on voter turnout or influence the election in any other way?

    Absolutely, there is far more to fear from the party that would sacrifice the lives of our soldiers and diplomats for political purposes and produce a voting machine to turn Romney votes to Obama!

    I don't think Tagg Romney has done or plans to do anything illegal. According to factcheck.org, it doesn't look like he even is invested in the company, as you said. What I wonder is whether or not the rumor will influence how the public votes.

    I agree. I don't think that the voting machines will be a problem at all. (At least I hope they aren't.) However, I wonder if the rumor about problems with the voting machines will influence voter turnout or the way that Ohio voters vote, in general.

    Do you think it will have an effect on voter turnout from either side?

    I'd really like it if Democrats stuck to classy attacks like "Spear-chucking, Kenyan, communist, affirmative action president, son of a porn star, Nazi."

    I don't think that Tagg Romney did anything wrong. I asked that question to see if people thought the perception of wrongdoing would influence the vote in Ohio. I think the question was and is valid.

    I guess what I am wondering is whether or not the rumor will have an effect on voter turnout. Democrats might decide not to vote because they think it won't count anyway and Republicans might not vote because they don't think they need to. Thoughts?
