110% turnout predicted in New Jersey

I'm thinking that if Romney wins, we'll get reports like how thousands of people couldn't get out to vote because of all the devastation in the northeast. It will be another "stolen" election. However, if Obama wins, then it'll be "the system works, even in the face of such devastation."

If the results in NJ are even close - especially if this state ends up being a deciding factor - This is going to be like that whole hanging chad incident, all over again.

I've often wondered how things in this world would have turned out if Bush's brother didn't break the law and hand him the election, thereby stripping Al Gore of the fair win. Hmmm....

I think the left will continue to promote ridiculous conspiracy theories whether they win or lose.

Meanwhile, they will prove they don't take election security seriously by scoffing at common sense measures like checking ID (perhaps with a little racism about how black people are somehow inherently less able to get ID in there).

Obviously voting by email is also not secure.

We aren't letting soldiers vote by email, even when we screw up their absentee ballots.

Remember how the democrats threw out all those military ballots in Florida in 2000 when they failed to steal that election? Disgusting. Then they start pretending they care about veterans.

Fortunately, we have the state elections, not national elections, so if a couple of blue states allow cheating, the damage is pretty limited.

Maybe from some of the wingnuts, sure. But I can't see someone like Rush or Hannity saying the election was stolen. They'll accept the results and move on. If Romney wins, I'm thinking that there will be lawsuits, reports of voter fraud, and that it will just be a repeat of the 2000 election. Hopefully that won't be the case. I really hope I'm wrong no matter who wins.

Since it is almost entirely Blue states that were affected by the hurricane, yes.

If a disaster prevented the central plains states from voting, and Obama won, do you think there wouldn't be a stink over that?

Because there are US Rep races that matter/are in question, There's a freshman Republican representative who just got his seat made safer by cutting out Cherry Hill and adding more Republican Brick Twp. Whoops! All of a sudden, a big bunch of Brick Twp. is damaged.
Because there are State Assembly & Senate races that are close. There are even contests for the Board of Frozen Cheeseholders that matter to a lot of people.
We don't run these contests just to entertain you folks. Altho sometimes we do it for the lulz.

Actually, that sounds like exactly how it will be spun in the press. Please offer us a better explanation if you have insight into this. You tell me how this will be explained when the votes swing either way. This I will enjoy reading.

I'm not saying you're both wrong, necessarily, because no one ever went broke overestimating the stupidity of people. But I think you might be confused about how the electoral college works. Poor voter turnout in a state doesn't alter the number of electors that state has, and in nearly all states, all the votes go to the candidate who won the popular vote. This means that voter turnout in New York relative to, say, Texas, is not directly relevant. Rather, voter turnout within each affected state would have to be depressed in a differential way. New Yorkers who would have voted for Obama would have to stay home in much greater numbers than Romney supporters in New York.

Poor turnout, especially if there is a mechanism to make it unequally distributed, makes it easier to swing things one way or the other. New York City got it worse than upstate New York, and even within NYC downtown was without power longer than uptown. There was just an announcement that New Jerseyites will be allowed to vote via e-mail or fax--that's not going to help people who are without power, or who never had home internet in the first place.

I can't offhand think of a comparable example for red states, but consider that Omaha voted for Obama in 2008 while the rest of Nebraska went for McCain. Find some way to keep the rural dwellers away from the pools, and you could turn Nebraska blue. Here in Colorado, Denver and Boulder (and I suspect Fort Collins as well) are Blue, the rest of the state is kind of red.

If I can't watch it happen in person, and don't understand it, it's impossible! The Moon Landing was faked! Thermite in the Towers! Powered flight is caused by sorcery! The Nazis couldn't possibly have killed that many people! Waaaaaaaa!

I am noticing quite a few people on various social networking sites "tweeting" that they are still without power. If they still have cell phones charged, they might still be able to use their email.

Also, all bank branches, libraries and hotels tend to have fax machines. If the internet is down but they still have power, I can see them providing fax service to the population.

Are you nuts? Everyone I've ever known from CSU has been marginally- to exceedingly-right-leaning.


Now that I look it up, it looks like that district's pretty evenly split. But they did vote Bush-Bush-McCain.

And this won't result in a socio-economic shift in turnout?
