The important thing is that he believes he voted for Reagan.  Whether he actually voted doesn't seem particularly relevant.

Finally!  Conservatives finally have found not only one, but two instances of voter fraud which would have been prevented by requiring voter ID.  Congratulations!

I met Paul Ryan about 10 years ago now when the only people who really knew him were people in hick areas of Wisconsin.  I did not give him a swift kick in the balls, hell I even have my picture taken with him.

Right Wing News is now reporting that a "transcription error" is responsible for their report stating that Scott Walker voted for Reagan. I'd love to know what kind of transcription error could cause that.

I was 10 in '84, so I'm fairly sure I'd have said I wanted Optimus Prime to win, especially if he'd picked Grimlock as his VP.

Crapinoleum: somedude210: what_now: I remember being asked who I thought should win the1984 election, and I saying "George Washington". Of course, I was 6.

in 96, my second grade class successfully predicted Clinton. in 2000, my mother and sister were watching the returns come in and I strolled in, briefly glanced at the tv and stated rather confidently (and seemingly with no knowledge backing it) that "why bother watching the returns? Bush is gonna win anyway" Both sister and mother were shocked at such a statement (and looking back, I'm impressed I could confidently say such a thing in such a mess of an election) and in 04, I predicted Kerry losing though I don't recall it being in a mock election, just in a meaningless bet with friends. Same goes with Obama in both 08 and 12.

TL;DR - I have an uncanny ability to predict presidential elections correctly without any real basis of facts. (at least none that I could tell)

Don't leave us hanging!  Who's your pick for 2016?


Not Sure?

When I was 5, I was disappointed that Carter had won, because a "Ford" was a car and I could spell "Ford".

Nabb1: I think we did one in 1984 when I was in middle school, too. I voted for Reagan, as I recall. My poor mom even had me poking fun at her for voting for Mondale.


Yeah, we did that too. I voted for Mondale because I snuck over to a friend's house to watch "The Day After" and was pretty sure that Reagan wanted to start a nuclear war. There are still days I'm surprised he didn't.

Dusk-You-n-Me: He could have meant a mock election at school.


I was in third grade in 1980 and we had a mock election from the "Weekly Reader" - a little weekly "news" paper for elementary school kids, and Reagan won the third grade, and the whole school, handily. And it was in Georgia, Jimmy Carter's home state. Kids that age tend to vote in those sorts of things based on what they hear from their parents, so that was a pretty grim canary in the coal mine for old Jimmy to get trounced in elementary school elections in his own home state the week before the election. I think we did one in 1984 when I was in middle school, too. I voted for Reagan, as I recall. My poor mom even had me poking fun at her for voting for Mondale.

That might have made a difference in the outcome in '84.
