This is how packed the polling place was in the little town I live in,London. During the primaries the place was completely empty.


Is that cord so the undecideds can hang themselves in shame?

robsul82: Babawawa calls '76 for Carter. Hawaii puts him over the top.

NBC News calls '80 for Reagan at 8:15 eastern.

Brinkley and Jennings call '84 for Reagan when Michigan makes the scoreboard 274-3.

Dan Rather calls '88 for OG George Bush. Missouri gives G-Herb the White House.

Peter Jennings calls '92 for Clinton. Ohio puts the Big Dog in office.

CNN miscounts the electoral votes and doesn't realize Clinton's won a second term for 15 minutes. Eh, it was that kind of year.

Dan Rather calls Florida for Gore in 2000.

Dan Rather pulls Florida back.

Tom Brokaw calls Florida for Bush and with it the White House.

For some reason there's no videos calling 2004 for Bush, hmm.

Obama wins 2008, MSNBC fills their pants.

Obama wins 2008, Fox News also fills their pants. Brit Hume is extra morose at calling California to push Barack over the top.


It's crazy how much better our TV technology is over the years.

Weaver95: it's freaking WEIRD tho. we're pushing the vote hard core and have been all week, but most especially today of all days. And the GOP just...isn't there. like...at all. total ghost town. or full out retreat, if that suits you better.

I figured the Republicans would have put forth at least a token effort.


Aren't there at least some local/state races that they'd be trying to influence, even if they've given up on Romney?

Did the blanket primary system affect your local races? What did you think of the system?


I don't think it had much impact on the local races in my district.

I was just thinking....

Seeing all these pictures of long lines at polling places, and considering the open way in which some states -- I'm looking at YOU FL and OH -- have openly worked to make voting more difficult, I'm thinking that it may well have the opposite of its intended vote-squashing effect.

If I lived in a state where I knew the ruling party was actively working to discourage voting by causing long lines and constricting early voting, I would wait in line as long as needed to vote, regardless of how long it took.

Not only might it backfire in that way, but they're certainly alienating the vast majority of the country -- including just about everyone here -- who thinks that voting should be easy and EVERY vote should count.

It's not as if any side is going to surrender on Wednesday. The political fights will continue. But the results from Tuesday will matter for the future, the present, and the past.

The American future will be greatly determined on Tuesday. The vote on Tuesday will also be a shout from today's electorate as to what kind of country we want. Tuesday will also inform us all as to what happened in the past - if Obama loses we'll finally get to hear the truth about his history and campaigns as well as rejoice in the judgment call of history on his tactics througout his electoral history.

A Mitt Romney win on Tuesday will mean that race-baiting as a political movement will end - character, not skin color will determine our choice in leaders. A Mitt Romney win on Tuesday will mean the American voter believes in accountability as to elected officials and not smear and fear slime tactics as practiced so dexterously in Chicago. A Mitt Romney win on Tuesday means the American future is not the Greece present.

If Barack Obama wins on Tuesday all restraints on race-baiting, fear/smear politics, and unaccountable elected officials will get worse.

With both these scenarios we'll bet on the American people but we all have to understand the toxic influence of Big Media on our daily lives and on our electoral process.

Vote as if your lives depended on it because in many ways they do.

The stakes are high. Mittmentum is expanding the map. There is hope America will be rescued. Stay positive. Call everyone you know. The stakes are too high to not win.

America must be rescued or in many respects the America of content of character will be wounded if not shattered.

Tomorrow we get to determine the future at the ballot box. Rescue America.

/I love these people

Is there a rule about what happens if you're in line to vote when the polls close? Do they let you vote or do they shut you out?

I didn't want to comment on your picture because I found it really, REALLY foul, but I would be proud. Most people have seen all kinds of nasty shiat on the internet.

That has been the prevailing thought down here in FL. No joke, people know that Gov Scott is trying to suppress the vote, and we are doing what we can to counteract it. I can't wait till his re-election in 2014

Yet somehow our Canadian network hosts all manage to behave. They have called elections at 08:00:01pm when the polls closed in the Eastern time zone, just based on the voting in the Atlantic provinces. The announcers were giddy for the 10 minutes before that, and as soon as they were legally allowed to mention vote results. BAM! "The CBC announces at 08:00:01pm, if the trend continues, that the next government will be a ... government"

No false starts like Wolf with the killing of Bin Laden, last year.
 
2012-11-06 04:23:10 PM
There's one thing I don't get about every election day. Why do the campaign spokespeople on both sides talk about how confident they are they're going to win? If they're wrong at the end of the day they just look like idiots, and even if they're right they risk depressing their own vote as their supporters think it's already in the bag. Maybe they hope to discourage their opponent's supporters but I doubt that's ever worked. What reason could Ed Gillespie have to tell Wolf Blitzer he's confident Romney will win Pennsylvania rather than just saying, "it's going to be close and come down to turnout." I think the odds are in Obama's favor, but even I'll admit that turnout could shift things either way.
 
2012-11-06 04:23:19 PM

Corvus: You seem to not able to focus (I notice this with a lot of crazy people). Do Mitt Romney and Obama have the same stance on those issues or not?


It doesn't matter a hooting hell what either of their "stance on those issues" may be.

The closest thing to any sort of real elected power in DC is the US Senate (House of Lords). Take a look at how the Senate votes - kind of blows your party-centric view of politics out of the water. The Senate is the House for rich people. Your Congressman makes a great show of fighting for you, your Senator kills it and you continue to throat that Koch.

Tools.

Yeah, I would think he'd have his home base in Utah or something. That's probably the only place where his supporters actively love him.
