LockeOak: NPR from FL: Allen West is going down.

There is a god. Now I must find and worship him.

ISO15693: jayhawk88: NYT reporting pretty sizeable Obama lead in Ohio. If he gets that, it's basically over right?


Obama is going to win.

If he can maintain it and win, Romney's got big problems ahead.

Okay, so like I was saying CNN really farked up the SCOTUS health care decision. They suck don't watch that shiat.

And in the Ball State Toledo football game, a Ball State TE had a leg injury so bad they won't even show what happened, let alone replays...

I wonder how long it will be before right wingers on fark start hollering about electoral college versus popular vote. I would give it 5 minutes. I am being generous by acting like they are going to wait 5 minutes.
2012-11-06 08:37:27 PM  
Florida is looking bad for Romney. If that holds, it should mean that every other swing state will end up looking really bad for Romney.

js34603: All the while knowing the important states will be "too close to call" (funny coincidence the important states are too close to call) for the majority of the night.

It will give us an excellent opportunity to get good and drunk.

js34603: I wonder how many of the Farkers who have been crying about the horse race narrative the media has been beating are glued to their media outlets of choice, clinging to every scrap of news and state calls, as the media spoon feeds them just enough information to keep them watching through the next commercial.

All the while knowing the important states will be "too close to call" (funny coincidence the important states are too close to call) for the majority of the night.

I dunno, but I think that I'll switch my insurance to Allstate

Starting to get 502 errors on CNN's results page.

Dear God, the folks at FOX are whining on and on about Oprah and Obama posters up at some polling place.

The line ups and technical difficulties not so much but the posters wow, they're right on top of it.

Gud jerb.

CNN - voting in Virginia will go until 11:00 PM eastern
2012-11-06 08:37:55 PM  

paj: According to Huckabee on Fox, Chick-fil-a Day was a "dress-rehearsal" for election day.

Wait, so I was supposed to get a sandwich when I voted???

bulldg4life: Florida is matching 2008 Obama performance.

Just as long as they don't match 2000 performance
2012-11-06 08:38:06 PM  

Via Infinito: Ok, farkers, do you remember what time McCain gave his concession speech in 2008? Was it after the west coast polls closed? Was it at midnight Eastern time? I know it wasn't the next day because it was at night. Teh googlez is not helping.

After polls closed. Also, nobody called the election for Obama until West Coast polls closed. I remember because everybody was just sitting and twiddling their thumbs until the SECOND the polls closed, then it was immediately called.

olddinosaur: I voted for Johnson to send them a message.

My State is so red, Obamavich doesn't stand a chance, but I don't like the other guy either.

Any Farkers in the same boat should consider doing what I did.

Demonstrate you have no idea how our representative government works at the presidential level?

Voting for a presidential candidate with no backing in the senate means your party's policies did not attract voters at the state level. No president for you. You've just thrown away a vote.

FL exit poll: Obama winning Jewish vote by 40 points. 40 points. Nice work, Sheldon Adelson.

God the derp on Fox. Why am I on this channel?
2012-11-06 08:38:34 PM  

coco ebert: August11: Linda has officially lost in CT. Proud of my state. Take your 100,000,000 dollars and stick it up your arse, Linda.

I mean, just stop a second and think of that amount of money. Wow. All of that for NOTHING.

And she's still one of the most well-off people in the state, I am sure.

She'll probably spend another $50 million on another run. Much like Romney thinks he should be President, she just thinks she should be in Senate.
2012-11-06 08:38:36 PM  

ISO15693: nyrkah1: Testiclaw: ISO15693: Well, NBC just called the presidency for Romney. Wow.


Drew created the ignore button for a reason.

bdub77: Down in NC, ahead in FL/OH. My 332 prediction so far holding up. CMON!

NC keeps changing farking colors. It's giving me a headache. Should go take another smoke break.

Turnout in VA is now expected to rival 2008 numbers.

And right now the numbers in VA are very similar to 2008.

Neither is good news for Mittens.

Earguy: It has been my experience that many election predictions and projections disappear once they've been horribly disproven. So I took some time to screen-grab as many of the predictions I could find. I want to use this as a tool, as to which poll or aggregator to watch most closely next time.

But you may find it a little fun to remind your far-leaning friends who pointed to their favorite biased "news source" that they were led horribly wrong. Maybe it could shake them awake...or it will drive them to start to shout "election fixing!"

Whatever, I've loosely laid them out ranging from "Obama Landslide" to "Romney Landslide." Hope you find this cool and not annoying.

Holy crap! Romney plummeted in the last five days! Oh, wait, it's Unskewed changing its strategy from "let's give the conservatives hope" to "we better not be *that* wrong. The earlier estimation has already disappeared.

i was scrolling through and found that mountain of pics and was about to be agitated, but then i read your pre post apology, we're good now, thanks for the screen grabs

If Obama takes both Ohio and Florida, the fat lady's gonna have to be woken up earlier than usual.
