Cincinnati.com apologizes for posting dummy data showing Romney with 92,000 vote lead



Sorry, Drudge, but Mitt Romney (or “Romnmey,” as you spell it) does not have a 92,000 vote lead in Ohio. It was a Cincinnati Enquirer screw-up.

The editors at the Gannett paper’s website explain:

It purported to show early voting totals in Ohio counties. However, no votes have been counted yet – by law counting doesn’t start until the polls close.

Cincinnati.com regrets the error.

The dummy data has been pulled, but you can still read the comments posted about it. Here are two:
