Election Day Open Thread

Hard to believe the day has finally arrived. Vote. Volunteer. What's everyone seeing out there?

A little motivational music below.

The second verse seems especially apt, doesn't it?

UPDATE - Via Mama AJ, a song for you cultured morons. Both of you:

This song may actually be angrier than the first.

Oregon is vote by mail. My wife and I never mail our ballots

I don’t know if this is good or bad, but last night and this morning there were unusually long lines at the ballot drop off.

64 I am voting in Southern California, the polling place was headed up by an Asian lady who could barely have spoken conversational English. It took 10 minutes per voter to get through the regi line. Many Republicans in Suit and ties had to leave the line , so they could get to work and support Governor Moonbeams crazy agenda while the Petulli Oil and Obamaites stood in line. It only told me Obama will mostlikely take California, but there will be a large number of Romney voters pissing down the rat hole out here, actually flooding the rat hole.

81 I arrived at the polls at 7:05, five minutes after they opened.

There were 120 people in line in front of me outside the polling location. No idea how many inside. It took 40 minutes to get to the front of the line. Once there, I counted 100 people behind me still in line. When I finished voting, there were still 100 people outside in line.

Wife got to the polls at 10:30, mid morning. Still 100 people in line, and she waited 30 minutes to get inside.

The election judge inside had this wide eyed look of amazement and said he has never in all his years seen this many people show up to vote.

In 2004 there were 20 people in line when I got there at the same time, and this county turned out Bush's largest margin in Florida in the election.

This is a very red county.

89 I'm in South St. Paul, Peoples Republic of Minnesota. *sigh*

There was a long line of new registrations at my polling place. Usually at 10am I walk right in to vote and there are no lines at all. We have two ballot questions that I believe are bringing them out - 1) voter ID, 2) marriage protection amendment.

The libtards have been non-stop TV advertising lying about the affects of both. They're even saying it'll cost us millions and have to completely redo our voting system to use ID. I think most of these new voters are airheads that believed it. The rest are young idiots who think two lesbians meet the universal criteria for "marriage". I had hoped Minnesota would narrowly opt for RR, but this does not look good.

Sorry guys, I guess you all out there will have to carry our freight again.

Just returned from voting in San Diego county. Almost cried at the polls, seeing parents with children, obviously explaining the process to them and the kids paying attention.
On to the supermarket, where people were buying large quantities of liquor. One man started a conversation behind me, telling someone else that it was for watching election returns and that he planned to celebrate. The other guy said in a low voice, "Romney?" and got the affirmative, so I chimed in, pointing to my "I Voted" sticker and just said "Romney".Someone else spoke up and mentioned that I should buy champagne. I looked to see if anyone was buying pudding but no one was....just alcohol.

110 so anyway, I had a rude awakening this morning at the polling place. Usually, I get to the polls around 6:55 AM, grab my ballot, vote, and am back in the car by 7:05 AM.

Not today.

I arrived at the polling place at 6:50 AM, and took my place at the end of the line, I figured I was 200 or so back (turns out I was 183rd in line). For a small (but tiny!) semi-rural suburb of The Peoples' Republik of AnnArbor, the turn-out was HUGE!

At one point, one of the election workers apologized for how slow the line was moving. I replied "That's OK, I've been waiting for four years already, another hour isn't a big deal"

Go VOTE!!!!

111 I voted early this morning. Our turnout in Oklahoma is huge. We're a red state for sure, but I sincerely hope the turnout is this large in every State in the Union.

Posted by: OldSailor88 at November 06, 2012 12:04 PM (2oNjs)

112 Voter turnout seemed much higher than usual here in my precinct near Los Angeles. There has been (unscientific measurement here) about a 2-to-1 advantage for Romney yard signs and bumper stickers over the SCOAMF's, coupled with a hot contest for the State Assembly seat that the Republican has led throughout the campaign season by a wide margin. My SWAG is that Republican voters are coming out in force.

I'd sell my mother to the Arabs to hear the words "California is in play." My mother is probably safe on that count, but it ain't over 'till it's over, right?

Right?

122 Waited over two and a half hours to vote at our local town hall in PA. The election staff were horribly inefficient and incompetent.


My sister lives in PA. Every time I chat with her on the phone -- and I'm not exaggerating; it's literally every time -- she has a new story of Pennsylvanian incompetence to share with me. She's convinced PA has to be home to some of the most across-the-board incompetent people in the country. It drives her nuts, and my B-I-L even nuttier. Their first week there a few years ago he nearly ended up punching a desk clerk at AAA.

When she sees a story on the news about someone somewhere doing something incredibly stupid, the reaction these days is usually, "Must be from PA."

So to all PA based Morons and Moronettes: you have my sympathies.

Just before 9 a.m., as his opponent campaigned in Ohio, Obama walked into the Hyde Park office, whipped off his suit jacket and tossed it on a chair. “Let’s get busy,” he told the campaign staffers around him, “we’ve got to round up some votes.” Then he joined some phone bankers at a table, picked up a flip-style cellphone and made several calls to voters in Wisconsin.

"Hi. Is this Annie? This is Barack Obama,” the president said, according to a pool report. “This is Barack Obama. You know, the president?" "She was very nice to me even though she initially didn't know who I was," Obama said after the call.





"Hi, this is Barack Obama!"

135 We're seeing Christie's true colors now. I've always had my suspicions.
__
He's done really good work educating his citizens about the teachers unions and municipal unions' parasitic hold on the state. But he had a couple widely publicized missteps, such as when he AND the Lt. Gov. went on vacation the same week that Snowmageddon came up the coast. And he defended his decision, because of course it was all about him.

Then there was the time he took a state chopper to his kid's softball game. Then of course that weird speech at the GOP convention. It's a good thing he was outed before PE Romney starts considering his appointments.

Further, one polling site in Philadelphia apparently had a mural of
President Obama emblazoned on the wall directly behind the voting
machines. The mural, at a local school being used as a polling site,
contained the words "change!" and "hope," along with a quote from the
president.


Republicans were drawing attention to the image Tuesday morning, with
one Mitt Romney spokesman tweeting: "Voters in Philly's Ward 35 are
being forced to cast their ballots next to this."

I'll take it a step further.
Obama barely won NC by a fraction of a point in 2008.
If Romney doesn't blow out Obama by at LEAST a few points in NC this cycle, its game over Romney.
Intrade, by the way, has NC at 80%, one of the few "swing" states it still has Romney ahead.

Personally, I'm not worried about this at all. Romney has NC sewed up.

190 Just met with my boss, he voted this AM in a Republican precinct in Bucks County PA and said line was super long at 7 a.m. He voted for Obama in 2008, voted Romney. Has 5 siblings, all did the same. Three of them in Florida. We're in a largish bank and praying fora Romney win.

Hearing of some shaningans in Philly but nothing more than usual. Not super heavy turnout there though.

Hopeful though, I was in front of a union machinist and his wife and kid, they voted straight ticket Republican (we were talking about finding a job for my kid) anyway I saw his ticket when he was putting it in the optical scanner.


Also there was a very young black chick dressed in a huge Romney/Ryan banner. They let her wear it in the polling station, I was surprised, but she seemed proud as punch, but she did move awfully fast on her way out, probably to keep from getting the crap beat out of her by all the minorities waiting in line.

225 Judge in Philly orders Franklin School with polling place to cover Obama mural in cafeteria after photo posted on Twitter by Daily Caller.

Posted by: rockmom at November 06, 2012 12:17 PM (aBlZ1)

226 Hubby, housemate and I got to our polling place at about a quarter to seven. Polls were due to open at 7:00am. We always go first thing in the morning because there's no line -- but this time the line was already about 30 people deep at 6:45am!

I saw one blue shirt and two blue denim jackets (which, of course, may have been just jackets) and stood in line behind three people wearing red or burgundy shirts. Everybody seemed happy and excited.

There was a car in the parking lot with a "Marines" bumper sticker next to an "Obama '12" sticker. Go figure.

I peeked at the voter roll as the poll workers were finding my name. It was a little discouraging at first -- "DEM DEM DEM DEM DEM DEM NPP DEM DEM DEM A/I DEM DEM NPP DEM DEM DEM DEM REP GRN DEM DEM DEM", etc. (but hey, that's my neighborhood for ya) -- but I think there's no way all those DEMs were going to vote for the 0. They didn't seem angry enough. :-)

One gentleman was wearing a "Korean War Vet" ball cap. I thanked him for his service. No one seemed displeased by that.

When we left, the line to vote was twice as long, and parents were starting to arrive with babies and children in tow.

I don't think Romney will carry my precinct, let alone CA as a whole, but it will be too close for Obagman's comfort.

I'm in the Pee Dee and there was a nice long line at 8am.

I was in and out of there in about 35 minutes. I don't really know what that means, because I literally waited in line for 3.5 hours (at a different polling station) in '08 to vote for McCain. I think that time they got caught flat-footed by unexpected turnout, and this time, everything was running like a well-oiled machine.

P.S. I never liked Christie. I put up with him restricted to a state but he couldn't even handle that. Christie is a back-stabbing traitor to America.

269 255 Voted here in Colorado -- I voted for every single republican on the ballot, skipped one where there was no republican, and wrote myself in once. I also am wearing my red shirt to my job here at Berkeley on the Rockies.

If we get Pennsylvania, we win. If not, then it all comes down to Ohio. Unfortunately, I think that somehow poll magic works, and the pollsters are able to pull signal out of 91% non-response noise. O285-257R. I am not looking forward to the next four years.

Hi Tami. Stamford is tricky because it's a microcosm of everything
there. You've got North Stamford which could go Romney and you've got
SouthEnd which definitely goes Obama. And everything else in between.
So if there was heavy turnout there, I'm not really sure what that
signifies.

Posted by: Sassy at November 06, 2012 12:19 PM (detCI)

I related this story this morning.....Here we just use a black marker to fill in the circle. While I was
waiting for my husband to finish voting, I watched a few people put
their completed ballots into the machine....the ones I could see had the
top line filled in, which were all the Republican candidates.

273 I love the aura around Nate Silver. It comes from the fact that he got 49 out of 50 states right in 2008.

but seriously, think about that. That was a blow-out election. Everyone knew who was going to win. Furthermore, in this close election with just basic poll knowledge and know models, every single person here could go get 40 out of 50 states right. See, they use that 49 out of 50 number to try and impress, but really it's more like he ogt 9 out of 10 right because everyone knew how the other 40 would fall. And in a wave election, that suddenly isn't such a big deal.

Two things to consider: There are a lot of evangelicals who are being
skimmed from the likely voter roles in polls but who will show up to vote. There
are a lot of democrats in the early voting who are voting Romney. Its looking good if the fraud can be kept to
historical levels, and there are a lot of volunteers out watching like never
before and a lot of scrubbing to registered voters lists.

288 Nate Silver, famous for picking most of the elections accurately in 2008. That's like picking the winner in a fight between Godzilla and Bambi, it was obvious. Then he was stupidly wrong in 2010, and he's going to be even more humiliatingly wrong this year.

But it gives the left a ghost of a hope, against hope. They know he's wrong but want to hear something reassuring.

312 I voted this morning, in the suburbs just north of Dallas, TX. Lines out the front door of city hall but moving fast. In and out in 30 minutes or so, and the line out the door was the same length when I left, around 80 people.
No signs our campaigns anywhere to be seen around city hall. A welcome sight compared to the gauntlet we had to go through at the last local election earlier this year.
I also noted that most of the local offices and judges were unopposed Republican with a few Libertarian candidates but very few Democrat candidates on the ballot. Our county leans right, but I thought we had more Dems on the ballot last time.

Still impressive GOP precinct work in a state as hopeless as IL. If we split the state at I-80 (or just took out Cook Co.) the southern half would be as red as TX.

It is. It's more older lefties and a lot of idiots who like to think that they're open minded and progressive. But there was a Romney fundraiser on Friday at a private residence at North State. So there may be a few like minded people in the area and there were 4 Romney signs in front of the voting place and nothing else. It's usually loaded with signs

until late tonight at the earliest.

Christie belongs in New Jersey, not at some fucking rally. I don't give a shit if I'm the only person here who thinks this. His "histrionics" and "backstabbing" and whatever bromance he had with the president fuckwit got things done here, for his constituents, and there is a ton more to do.

I originally voted for him, but not because I wanted to ever see him at the national level, but to see him serve MY STATE. I am possibly the only person in my entire county to have voted for him but I followed Christie since he was attorney general. Sure, he is a blubbery blowhard but he got shit done back then as well.

Christie did not swing anyone to vote for Obama. Did the incompetent Bloomberg convince anyone with his insanity and series of bad decisions? Give me a break.

I live in (squishy RINO and quitter) La Tourette's district and got back from the polls about an hour ago. Long lines, but lots of obvious Democrat hacks. I can't for the life of me figure how you can live in a 4-bedroom home and vote for the party that brags about how they're going to steal all your shit and give it away to worthless bottom-feeders. But I'm surrounded by these self-loathing assholes.

And to the schools asking for additional property taxes just to pay for existing expenses (using the long-ago-declared-unconstitutional and nakedly un-American mechanism of property taxation to pay for them)?

443 Voted in upscale Vienna, Virginia. Long lines at around 11am. Only going by the color of sample ballot that people chose (some had both), it looked like a mixed bag of D's and R's. There is also a big mix for yard signs.

Republicans totally kicked ass on the GOTV. We had visits several times to the door (which is funny because I was walking other precincts), several calls a day, and a couple of door hangings. No Dems ever stopped by. Telling? That is the inverse of 2008.

In my precinct in 2008, Obama won by 5.2%. However, in the 2009 election for Governor, the Republican McDonnell won by 5.5%. I don't think that there is a lot of turnover in these neighborhoods. I guess we'll find out late tonight.

One of the election workers said that there had only been a couple of Provisional Ballots cast. Which will help out with the count at the end of the day. Provisional balloting could cause some headaches in Virginia.

460 CHICAGO—President Barack Obama stopped by a Democratic victory office
here Tuesday to encourage supporters and call volunteers in Wisconsin.
The first person he reached on the phone took some time grasping who was
on the other line.

Before he left, according to the pool report, Obama picked up a
Starbucks cup, sipped it, and realized it was someone else's."That's
coffee, not tea," Obama said. "I thought that was my tea."





It comes naturally for him. He's used to taking other people's things

Obama's photo op was using a national crisis as a campaign event, and ultimately meant nothing to the recovery effort. Democrats politicize every little inch of human suffering they can get in the same frame as themselves, all while hypocritically accusing their opponents of the same. Christie was very unwise to do what he did indulging that campaign event in his storm stricken state.

Just like that fucking idiot child here took sides against us and Chik Fil A, Christie tooks sides with Obama.

It is unnecessary, unhelpful, and unforgivable.

Tried to post a link. It was rejected for too long an unbroken string and recommended I use tinyurl instead. Even though I _was_ using tinyurl. Brilliant site coding work there, to be sure.

Try a search for "The Crazifornia Propositions Voter Guide," which is pretty good, and what I was trying to link to.

Proper Russian vodka is potatoes, but that's actually rare now. The typical Russian brands are grains. Any grain can make vodka. Hell, they actually even use grapes.

The only way we'll ever know if pot legalization is the way to go is for a state to take it for a test drive first. Might as well have WA be the guinea pig.

I am amazed at how many people went out to vote - maybe they're putting an exclamation point on Texas electoral college count?

Posted by: Rich at November 06, 2012 12:27 PM (arczc)"I think there's a "Nate Silver bubble".Where I think it will get interesting to do a post-mortem on his model if Romney wins (which I definitely hope happens), is to compare his odds to the odds that would have been generated by Congressional district level polls, rather than state polls. If those CD polls are right and the GOP holds Congress, I think Romney wins. That will undercut the methodological rationale for using state-level Presidential polls to model the Presidential outcome. Basically, you would introduce more data to the model and data that's harder to fudge by using Congressional district data. Sure, you can talk "quality" issues with CD level polling, but I don't see that as a deal-breaker per se. Nor would "ticket-splitting" between Congressional and Presidential votes be one, as far as I can see.
Anyway, rather than just call him a "hack", I figured I would throw out why, even if he isn't a hack per se, he could just be missing the forest for the trees.BTW, I do a lot of trading and use odds all day, every day. Seeing how the Left uses Silver exposes them for the degenerate idiots they are (yeah, I know, what's new?). They treat odds as if they were all that matters for a single round game, which the Presidential election most clearly is. I have trading models that win 70% of the time, but I'm not stupid enough to bet 70% of my bankroll on a single trade, whereas these idiots are so "all-in" they can't imagine losing.

As a libertarian, you should see putting the state in conflict with the feds, particularly on an issue where Dems agree with the state, as a very good thing. Issues like medical marijuana are where we're going to win Dems over to the idea of letting the states set their own laws. And it's going to take supporters in *both* parties to begin to roll back the centralization of federal authority in this country.
So, I voted *yes* on the medical marijuana initiative here in MA.

On one of the local radio stations, folks calling in stated that voting in Virginia Beach was 2 1/2 hours at one precinct, and 3 hours in line at another. Virginia Beach tends to be Republican. One caller said "I would stay in line all day to vote in this election". I think there is a tidal wave of Republicans voting in Virginia. Just my 2 cents. I was in downtown Norfolk last night after the Obamabots left the free Stevie Wonder concert, all yelling "fired up" on the streets. I have my doubts if they are in line today.

Our local conservative talk show host says that he wants Romney to win, but the math just doesn't add up.

Being no stranger to math, I'm here to tell you that applying math without first applying a heavy dose of logic will usually get you the wrong answer. If your model is flawed, and if your data is wrong, you can grind your numbers perfectly until the cows come home, and you still won't get it right.

The last CNN poll is the poster child. It says "it's close - so, so, VERY close!!" But when you look at the internals, what it says is complete madness! I cringe when I think about what kind of torture must have been applied to those poor defenseless numbers, in order to get them to say what they wanted them to say. I say, "Leave those poor lil numbers alone!"

Anyway, we must reject that which is logically inconsistant, and dead-reckon with logic (and yes, apply a little math).

My congressional race is (allegedly) 50/50; this is not a deep red area. I have seen exactly ONE Obama yard sign ever. I don't know what the hell that means, but something VERY unusual is going on that nobody is talking about.

578 Have ya'll read what's happening in Philadelphia?

From Powerline:

It is being reported that Democratic Party operatives are evicting court-appointed Republican poll watchers from polling places in Philadelphia. Specifically, this reportedly has happened in Ward 32, Div 13; Ward 43, Div 14; Ward 56, Div 1; Ward 56, Div 22; Ward 32, Div 28; Ward 32, Div 28; Ward 12, Div 17; Ward 39, Div 1; Ward 24, Div 9; Ward 18, Div 25; Ward 43, Div 14; Ward 29, Div 18; Ward 65, Div 19; Ward 20, Div 1; and Ward 6, Div 11. The idea is to kick out the Republicans, then stuff the box with ballots marked for Obama. This is how some of these precincts have achieved 99 to 100% turnout in past elections.

The story is, as they say, developing…

UPDATE: The New Black Panthers are out, too, “guarding” the same voting location where they were criminally prosecuted for voter intimidation in 2008.

The moral is that Republicans don’t just have to win elections, they have to win by an amount that exceeds the margin of fraud.

UPDATE: The Romney campaign is reporting that 75 Republican poll watchers have been barred from precinct polling places in Philadelphia, in some cases by Democrats saying, “No Republicans will be allowed in the polling place.” The GOP has gone to court and obtained an order from the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas requiring the Republicans to be admitted to the polls and seated per their legal authority. However, there is no telling what mischief, in the form of voter fraud, the Democrats have committed in the meantime.


For god's sake, is this happening in the USA?

With that, I got 5 out of 6 of my family to vote (all for Romney). The 6th one just moved to another state, so he was in that limbo where he wasn't sure of his eligibility in either state. I let him off the hook, this time. One of the voters was my daughter (her first opportunity to vote).

The father of the girl who was harrassed at school for wearing a Romney T shirt a few weeks ago called. He and his wife went to vote in Port Richmond, a semi-ghetto area of northeast Philly. He said when they walked in everything went quiet and nobody would look at them. When he finally got in front of someone to ask what to do (they recently moved to the neighborhood and were first time voters) a poll worker gruffly told them to sign in and show their IDs. (First time voters have always had to show ID in PA). They hassled his wife because her ID did not have her married last name on it. Then the other onespat out"well, I guess there are two votes for Romney." When they finished voting the poll workers refused to give them the "I Voted" stickers.

I voted in favor of Medical Marijuana (having had personal experience with chemo, and I got my weed "black market").
I'm not sure I'd do that again, because we seem to have more medical marijuana dispensaries than we have prescription drug stores.

Essentially, they advocate funding school systems with "drug money".
The only way that works is if sales increase to the point that being stoned is the norm.
They started out funding schools with tobacco tax, and as smoking has decreased, so have school revenues from the source.

You're talking about Mourdock in Indiana? Not necessarily. My girlfriend told me she voted almost straight Republican ticket--except for Mourdock. His garbled response to the child-conceived-by-rape question pissed her off. I explained to her what I'm convinced Mourdock was driving at, that the child born of rape or incest is as 'legitimately' human as any other and equally worthy of life, but she remains convinced he's as much of an insensitive, tone-deaf dumbass as Akin in Missouri. I tend to think she's representative of many Republican women in Indiana, as well as moderates of either gender.

If Mourdock wins a Senate seat, it's because Romney has long coattails, not because he ran a decent campaign.

There was some confusion about voting as some people from other districts showed up at our polling place.
But listening to the radio, the top of the hour newscasters seemed a little nervous for Barry.

Yeah, regarding the polling place shenanigans, obviously it must be
vigorously opposed, but you're seeing breathless reports that may or may
not accurately reflect reality.



And it's sorta like being a victim of armed robbery. It's bad, it
happens, and if it happens to you, it's the worst thing in the world,
but in the grand scheme of things, it's not going to change the course
of history.

"enforcement" against medical marijuana clinics over Bush? And that
Mitt, however anti-drug he may be, believes in letting the states handle
most social issues?


No shit, the feds are busting all of the clinics in CA despite the wishes of the state. I know somebody who grew for the clinics and got busted by ICE. ICE? ICE! We're talking NV and CA here, not Mexico. They have a nice little racket going - busting shops and growers and taking pot and money and investing in just the places they want.

We'll hear more about this once Mitt gets in. The feds make the mafia blush.

649 A commenter at Althouse (Bruce Hayden) makes a good point about the Philadelphia thing:

Here is how I understand it. Republicans have traditionally had little presence in this part of Philadelphia. So, they often haven't sent poll watchers in the past. The Democratic election head there then appoints one of his cronies to sit in the Republican's seat. And, this presumably allows for a lot of hanky panky, limited only by the number of registered voters in the precinct (which is where all those fake registrations that Dem organizations have supplied come in).

This year, a lot of Republicans apparently showed up to fill the Republican election watcher slot. This was not appreciated by the local Dem organization that is used to filling those slots, and so balked by ejecting the designated Republican poll watchers.

A couple things of note here. First, a lot of those on the left claim that the real issue is disenfranchisement (i.e. undervoting), and not voter fraud (i.e. overvoting). This is just more evidence that voter fraud is probably rampant and traditionally unpoliced in at least the heavily Dem areas of Philadelphia.

Secondly, on a good note, the fact that the Republicans are sending election judges and poll watchers to these precincts is likely indicia that they are much better organized this year, and the fact that they were able to get injunctions and the like evidence that they were prepared for this, with attorneys standing by ready to go into court. And, I think that means that there is likely going to be less fraudulent voting by the Dem machine in Philadelphia than usual.

652 Well greetings from voting on Long Island land of no gas. (Now there is rumor we maybe running low on heating oil we will eating each other before this done but I digress) I am in Peter King's (R) district. We were in Steve Israel's (D) but through the magic of redistricting I am now represented in congress by a Republican. Someone before me was asking for a provisional ballot because he was displaced by the hurricane. He had a friend bring him to the polling place. My guess he is staying with the friend. By the look of them it was 100% legit and if I had make a guess based on their demographics it is a vote for Romney. Other than that it was totally quiet. However in all previous elections I have never had much of a wait. I do call Obama campaigners on the road into the polling place in 2008. Today Nada. There were a few signs on the way in for Phil Boyle (R) who is running for State Senate. That was it.Glancing at the page you sign in on I was the only one who had voted today. Well in keeping with the Ace of Spades tradition I wrote a lot about nothing really happening.

658 A bit of analysis, "shooting from the hip" style:

Voting totals in Obama-won counties in Ohio are down 4.1%, while voting totals in McCain-won counties are up by 14.39%, with overall statewide early voting up by 2.44%. Now, I realize that this is a gross generalization and is in no way statistically sound, BUT...

If you take the vote totals from 2008 and weight them down 4.1% for Obama and up 14.39% for Romney, you get this:

Romney - 3,063,158
Obama - 2,819,502

Which is a 52-48 Romney victory, with an increase of the electorate of 2.81% (which isn't too far off from the 2.44% increase already documented in early voting totals).

Again, just spit-balling. But...if this turns out to be near the final voting totals, I want credit, dammit!

Remember, everyone said it all came down to the turnout models. If turnout is like 2008, Romney's done. Krumm, also said that if turnout is 60% or lower, this is GOOD for Romney. With more turnout, Romney's chances go down.

I have said it before, and I will say it again, and I may say it for the next four years:

WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE VOTING FOR BARACK OBAMA? Who?!?!

As far as songs, I think Romney should have spent a boatload of cash, and put his Momentum spot on every single network nationwide. Instead, set the commercial to "Final Game" from Rudy. The music from Rudy makes everything better. Rudy music would make it E.P.I.C.

I also agree with my girlfriend to an extent: Mourdock's answer was garbled, poorly worded and ill-prepared.

This is what Philadelphians from the hood don't know:

The city fathers have long had a plan to shrink the very low income neighborhoods, due to the fact that those locations always end up with a backlog of tax sale properties. The number of tax sales properties has increased exponentially, and the plan is to just raze the buildings without replacing them.
There has been a steady gentrification of poor neighborhoods in the city, there are areas where pioneers are moving in and rehabbing that I would not venture into past 5 pm. This new breedis who the Philadelphia urban planners want as residents. Bottom line: in ten years the demographic make-up of the city will be much less amenable to donks and their ilk. Good on the Philly GOP for taking a stand and moving into the belly of the beast, for in time they will find a less hostile territory.

It purported to show early voting totals in Ohio counties. However, no votes have been counted yet – by law counting doesn't start until the polls close.

Cincinnati.com regrets the error."

Not every woman in mine did. Don't see how that speaks to Mourdock's competence or lack thereof. And how is it Mourdock didn't get Governor Daniels to stump for him, anyway? I know Daniels said he wanted to steer clear of politics in his final months in office, but come on, we're talking about a US Senate seat here.

If Mourdock's elected, we get what we get, but he won't have been elected because he ran a sterling campaign. He'll be elected because there'sa bigred wave sweeping him into office.

890 Troy, I believe Daniels' reason was that as a president of a public university, it would be inappropriate to stump for either side of the aisle. You notice he has not really been a Romney guy. Not saying he is against Romney, but he certainly has not been a staunch surrogate.

That is understandable; most university heads are liberal, so I am sure we wouldn't want someone whose public organization, in this case, place of higher learning, receives public funds, on the campaign trail.

I almost voted Donnelly. Despite being blue, he seems like a decent family guy. I voted for Lugar in the primaries, because of this specific situation. I thought Lugar would beat Donnelly handily, and Mourdock was a wild card. Off-topic, Mourdock has always struck me as a little bit off, a little weird. I wasn't sure I could pull the lever for the weirdness. In the end, the pro-life in me just couldn't pull the trigger for Donnelly.

OMG: I googled pudding shortage on a hunch and found this:
"Of the nursing homes we studied, less than a quarter had plans in place specifically to deal with pudding shortages," lead researcher Everett Cosby, chief of the section of pudding epidemiology at Kraft Foods' Chicago research and development laboratory, explained. "That leaves nearly 2.5 million elderly citizens at risk of receiving less than the recommended daily allowance of pudding, and that is unacceptable in a high risk population that is prone to pudding deficiency related health concerns."According to Cosby, the effect of a pudding shortage on this population should not be taken lightly.
"If nursing homes are to be called upon to serve as a source of care, and pudding, for vulnerable citizens with nowhere else to turn, the impact of a widespread pudding supply breakdown could be catastrophic." Kraft Foods Inc. is calling for congress to enact legislation that will ensure that nursing home residents receive a steady supply of pudding in the event of any necessary pudding rationing.

898 Just got done voting. Was pretty much in and out. Usually I vote later in the day so don't have a good indication about how the turnout would be. Of course, almost all the downticket races were uncontested. And the uncontested candidates were all R's. So just had Pres. Senate and state and local issues.

899 Working as an election judge in Chicago, pretty low turnout so far. Definitely more SCOAMF votes than Romney being cast here (based on random glimpses I've caught as people submit their ballots). Guess that shouldn't surprise anyone.

But what is surprising: lots of local Dem candidate signs outside, but not a single Obama sign. Not just here but at the two other polling places in this area.

Just don't buy them a beer (or anything), either before or afterward. I'm pretty sure that some states still have old laws on the books about providing alcoholic beverages to people in order to get them to vote.

Posted by: Tickled Pink at November 06, 2012 01:46 PM (knYLP)

Similar feelings for similar reasons when I voted for Mourdock. A liberal friend of mine knows Donnelly personally, says he's likeable but moderate (not a compliment from a liberal), an old-time Blue Dog. Thing is, Blue Dogs always vote party line on major issues, even if it kills them. And that's another thing: the Democrats seem to be more loyal to their own party than Republican politicians and voters seem to be. The Dems seem more cohesive while we're stuck with the RINOs on one end and the Libertarians on the other, both ready to split the ticket or jump the aisle at the slightest provocation. The GOP is a big tent, sure, but if you come in the tent then stay in the tent and quit threatening to storm out every time you don't get your way.

Isn't it weird that I've waited 4 years for this?

When did anybody figure out that Obama was worse than imagined?

In 2007, before the internet was scrubbed, and I did the research. I knew all about his commie family, frank marshall davis, Stanley and wife Dunham, and the litte red church in WA, and the choom-boy going to Pakistan when Americans weren't allowed INTO Pok ee ston. I knew about his madrassas attendance, the divorce my abandoning mother Stanley from 2nd muslim husband, Lolo Soetoro because he went to work for an evil capitalist Union Oil Co. in Indonesia, and I knew how every election he won, he won by sleezy legal revelations days before the election, I knew about Tony Rezko, Valerie Jarret and Rev. Wright. I read Obama Sr.'s thesis stating that 100% tax on people in Kenya was feasible and worthy. I knew about Odingo, George Obsama, the brother who works in finance in China, ad nauseum. It was all there. Until it was scrubbed.
You had to want to know. Not to mention, his books, ghost-written by Billy Ayers, (whose home obsama launched his political career in) and the Weather Underground, Rhashid Khalidi, and the old dude who gave an interview saying BO gained entrance to Harvard by a letter from him, an islamist commie, and his connections to Bin Alwaleed.
Just regurgitating it makes me sick. Sicker than I have been since the Arab "Spring", and worst, Benghazi.
The next 70 days are going to be HORRIFIC, and everyone better be ready with screen shots and Congressional contact numbers. Along with the other fed alphabet units.
But, today, Is OUR day.
Cheers! Go R/R.

922 You know, regarding Christie, I think he was in shock and Obama took advantage of it.

Every time there is a natural disaster there are people who pick through wreckage, gather what things are salvageable, thank the Lord that no one in their family was killed, and say they will rebuild,

Then there are the people you see staring off into space, in shock, maybe weeping, and if they can talk, they simply say, "I don't know what I am going to do."

No one knows how he/she will react until something like that happens. Christie, sadly, is of the latter type. I hold him no animus, but he killed his chances for national office. You cannot have a vice president or president who collapses when bad things happen. And I think he did.

928 Never saw so many people at my polling place, very red precinct in a very red state (Alabama). This shows that people want to vote as an expression of their desire to oust Obama, even in a deep red state that will go big for Romney/Ryan. If this holds in key Senate races in other Romney states (Missouri, Indiana, Florida, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska), as well as swing states (Ohio, Pennsylvania, Nevada), then Harry Reid will be ousted. That will be sweet indeed.

I agree with the person who said C Christie was operating in some kind of state of shock. Probably still is. He's an asthmatic, has been hospitalized for it. Wouldn't surprise me to see him be admitted again. Needs to lose weight. Hired a personal trainer when he becmae the guv, for his kids' sake, but looks like he's a heavy as ever.

When you are addicted to anything, food included, you seek it when you're happy, when you're sad, when you're anxious, when you're relaxed. In other words, to soothe and to reward.

I was hoping Rove would be a guest on Hannity's radio show, but not today. Guess he's busy getting ready for the poll-closed shows.
Do you think Sean Hannity talks this much to his wife? My gawd, I've never known a man to repeat himself the way he does. He seems to be a very nice man, people say he's kind and generous and that does come through, but wow, can't he just take questions instead of blabbing?
Kasich is on now: just said he's "optimistic", still taking about the EV of Dems not meeting targets in OH, but of course, he said he has no way of knowing if they are voting today. Says he has heard the GOP turning out, but that he still maintains it'll be close.Duh.

Posted by: gayle in ca at November 06, 2012 03:41 PM (wgmUB)

934 Just heard on Hannity that Axlerod has been making fun of Mitt campaigning in Pitt today, saying he's desparate.I'd think if Axlerod had faith, he's not let that bother him. He is doing his best to discourage Mitt turnout.

Now Hannity has on Billy Cunningham from OH.
Cunningham said he just talked to registrar of voters : Hamilton County: suburb of 550k voting in the meaty part of "doughnut" is great, way up from 2010 and he said Mitt will win HC and win Ohio.
Hope he's right, but Cunningham is always "up."

Posted by: gayle in ca at November 06, 2012 03:45 PM (wgmUB)

937
Correction: I was trying to type as Cunningham spoke and as I am not from Ohio, all these counties mean nothing to me, but all he said was that the info from registrar of voters makes it look sweeeeet for Mitt.
