OK, so the states to watch are

Florida - 50% chance of recount, 100 chance of Florida tag being used

North carolina - 75% chance of Robosexual Orgy

Virginia - 85% of Scary Black Man

Colorado - 80% chance of Went Black, Can't Go Back. Small chance of upset due to Weedlord Bonerhitler

Ohio - 100% chance of lawsuits, voting "irregularities".

Nbc calling kenya for obama.

gunga galunga: Oh, and he also thinks that that gays and woman should get over the threat to their rights because that's not as important as fixing the economy first.


That's actually in keeping with the founding ideals of this country. (Economic) freedom for land owning whites first, equality for slaves, natives, and women if there's time.

Ah, that's Broward County in Florida.

Relatively Obscure: TV's Vinnie: d-fens99: Sweet flaming monkey balls, is Obama winning Ohio?

Sure damn hoping so! If he does, that's gonna cut at least one of the nuts off of Rmoney's campaign chances.

I love it when people freak out about the first like twelve votes that come in.


Ohio is still leaning blue, brah.

jasimo: Bontesla: msnbc @msnbc

Florida's polls are closed, but thousands of voters remain in line

Goddammit. There's no excuse for this crap in the day and age. You guys better vote that asshole Governor of yours out.


It may have something to do with the billion page voting ballots.

Holy shiat there goes Obama's Florida lead. That was fast
 
2012-11-06 08:16:21 PM  
Sorry Farkers but here comes the geography:

The East Coast is mainly blue, and it will tilt for Obama early. The center of the nation is thoroughly red, and the "Left Coast" is strongly Democrat.

Sit back and kill a cold Heineken or twelve, it's gonna be a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong night.
 
2012-11-06 08:16:22 PM  
Wow so one media outlet says Lee county FL is blue and another red, and then another blue and another red

which, who, is more corrected in their projections?
 
2012-11-06 08:16:24 PM  

Mrtraveler01: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Glenford: They just showed the Florida ballot on CBC. WTF? An 11x17 sheet, double-sided for a ballot?

Yep, and we had two of 'em.

This is why your state deserves the tag.


Now now, they have a lot of old farts in Florida. They are probably regular ballots in 30-point font.

OH: Obama +117439, 13% reporting (CNN)
 
2012-11-06 08:16:43 PM  
Do note that per CNN only 300k or so votes have been counted in Miami-Dade county, out of a population of 2.5 million. Still a lot of ballots in play in the Sunshine State.

Andy Andy: Here's my predictions for the record:

Obama wins.

1. Right wing whining about voter fraud, acorn,? ect for a few daysyears
2. "He's a lame duck president now"
3. Impeachment talk starts seriously within a year.six months

Sorry for being so pessimistic.


FTFY

Have all the politicians left Ohio yet? Some of us would like to get back to sleep and ignoring phones calls from "Rachel from Cardholder Services"
 
2012-11-06 08:17:04 PM  

GAT_00: robsul82: FL: Romney +93923, 51% reporting (CNN)

That's one hell of a flip.


Early votes were huge for O and counts on those were returned earlier.  Election day votes are coming in now.  That is the explanation I received.
 
2012-11-06 08:17:08 PM  

bdub77: Tomahawk513: Florida 51 R 49 D @ 50%. Kinda thought this would be a blow out for Romney.

Something like 23% more hispanic registered voters in 2012 than 2008. I think Obama is gonna win FL. 332 baby.


I have 347 in the prediction thread, which means I need NC.

I wish there was a televised #election2012 reunion where Obama and Romney got to wear nice dresses and reflect on this season.
 
2012-11-06 08:17:16 PM  

Bontesla: tinfoil-hat maggie: New thread and I still can't keep up.

I'm trying to juggle Twitter, Fark, and live coverage.
/head explodes


Gah! See!?!
 
2012-11-06 08:17:21 PM  
Well, NBC just called the presidency for Romney. Wow.
 
2012-11-06 08:17:21 PM  
CNN has Romney up by 30,000 in Tallahassee. That's certainly not at all the case. In fact it's pretty much +30,000 for Obama right now.
 
2012-11-06 08:17:21 PM  
With polls closing in Maine, Angus King has won the senate seat. He is an flame broiled independent and a juicy candidate for the democrats to try and pick up.
 
2012-11-06 08:17:33 PM  
FL: Romney +130826, 57% reporting (CNN)
 
2012-11-06 08:17:36 PM  
So, is Jill Stein still in this thing?
 
2012-11-06 08:17:40 PM  
Been wearing out my F5 key all day. Figured I would post and get my presence noted in some small way. Did my part for democracy (and Obama) in Wisconsin this morning. No wait at 8:45am. Though the on-site registering voters looked to have about a 10 minute wait.

The Florida numbers look crazy. Obama is losing Broward county right now, he won Broward in 2008. All eyes shift to Ohio.

This can't hold.

This can't hold.


The panhandle has a lot of Republicans. I like where this is going.

How many election threads will there be?
 
2012-11-06 08:17:58 PM  

Palmer Eldritch: the.swartz
The election coverage sounds and looks like a football game. Silly indeed.

I've been hearing this comparison a lot lately when people try to make the point that we aren't treating the election appropriately. I think the real point is that we, as a nation, are so sports-crazed that we subject sports to the same level of analysis as our political process.


So, like baseball, there's a load of bloviating rubbish bleated by idiots and in the end it takes Nate Silver to explain what's really going on?
 
2012-11-06 08:18:05 PM  

SnakeLee: Holy shiat there goes Obama's Florida lead. That was fast



Only 23 percent reporting. I guess we'll see! The county maps are kinda interesting, too.

Ohio is still leaning blue, brah.


And I hope it stays that way, but there isn't much in yet from what I'm seeing. ... Brah.

GiantRex: Now that Rmoney has officially lost his home state, here's some fun presidential trivia.

LIST OF PRESIDENTS WHO LOST THEIR HOME STATE IN THE ELECTION
1844 - James K. Polk (Tennessee)
1916 - Woodrow Wilson (New Jersey)
1968 - Richard Nixon (New York)

Nixon's status on this list is questionable because he was a Californian for most of his life and only took up residency in New York after his failed run for governor of California.


And when he loses Michigan, the List of Presidents Who Lost their home and birth state in the election:

1844 -- Polk

So, yeah.

Cthulu because Megatron has StarScream on his team and he's an idiot.

ISO15693: Well, NBC just called the presidency for Romney. Wow.


WTF?
 
2012-11-06 08:18:18 PM  
No, fark, Florida, what are you doing? Florida, stop it!
 
2012-11-06 08:18:25 PM  

Altitude5280: Hope Fark don't break.


Election threads are being capped at 2000 posts to prevent that.
 
2012-11-06 08:18:26 PM  

SnakeLee: Holy shiat there goes Obama's Florida lead. That was fast


Ohio's still blue for now. That's where one of the biggest swingers is gonna be.
 
2012-11-06 08:18:27 PM  
Yeah I'm figured Florida is in the bag for Romney and Ohio is in for Obama.

So the waiting continues.
 
2012-11-06 08:18:34 PM  

I_C_Weener: GAT_00: robsul82: FL: Romney +93923, 51% reporting (CNN)

That's one hell of a flip.

Early votes were huge for O and counts on those were returned earlier.  Election day votes are coming in now.  That is the explanation I received.


And, on election day, rural results come in faster.
