Election Thread

Election Thread 


Hey All - Let's keep this JUST to election exit polls, returns, significance, etc.  No Trayvon, who's the worst President in history, yada, yada.  Yes, a little banter is fine, but let's do our best keeping focused on the election at hand.  Here we go:

Exit polling at 6:00 p.m. showing:

NC and FL breaking for Romney - no surprise.

PA, MI, NV breaking for Obama - no surprise.

NH breaking for Obama - somewhat a surprise.

VA showing tossup - somewhat a surprise against Romney

CO showing tossup - somewhat a surprise against Romney

IA showing tossup - somewhat a surprise against Obama

OH showing tossup - no surprise

Exit polling, meh. Conservatives are, well, conservative. The liberals hit the doors looking for the pollsters. Most of the people will be voting for Romney are just getting home from work, so the results should swing.

Yes because if you are a Democrat you are most likely an unemployed schmuck, right?

Romney had a tweet to this effect the other day. This isn't leadership.

CNN says Obama wins VT, Romney wins KY.

No surprises there.

This skewed percentages in favor of Dems in 26 states in the 2004 election, but did not affect the end up contradicting the actual winner in any of those states.  That is a good political strategy if you're a party operative - tell your folks to actively look for the exit pollers.

For the record I voted for Glendening over Sauerbrey in 94 and 98. Glendening brought Jobs to MD and lowered taxes. I will back a fiscal conservative no matter the party affiliation.

Romney's internal polling from Ohio leaked to Cnn.  Romney's internals point to Obama +5.

That is an interesting psychological strategy, similar to standard polling results.  I assume the idea is to convince people that it would be futile to vote.    

In Florida in 2004 the polls were reported as closed an hour before they actually were, a portion of the panhandle is in the central time zone and voted 70% for Bush.

And much tighter in FL and NC than polls indicated.  The red counties are pretty much all but counted.  Miami-Dade is only reporting 30% right now.  Florida could very well remain blue.  Should it go Romney, the trend is now Ohio as a must win for Romney - all the other scenarios of picking off a traditional blue state here and there are all but extinguished.  WI, PA, MI are going O.

The fact that they called WI so quick makes me think that Obama wins this thing. Maybe in four years the GOP will wake up and actually nominate a guy that's a true conservative.

The emerging demographics of this country, confirmed via results tonight, suggest this would be the worst move possible.  This isn't snark but should be obvious by now.

Well looks like this race is over. Too bad GOP, Ron Paul would have been much more appealing to independents.

No, I believe the country wants a true fiscal conservative. They want cuts across the board, including defense. They want their liberties back I've said all along that Mitt Romney was a terrible candidate. Not only was he a flip-flopper that would take any stance to get elected, but he was completely un-relatable to the average American.

Ron Paul would have been very appealing to democrats as well. The GOP needs to stop beating the war drum and realize that the American people don't want our country to be the world police.

I live in North Virginia and had to wait in line for 2 hours.

It was wild. The line went on and on. Seemed very diverse.


My wife dealt with the same thing at 6AM.

I think Dick Morris is becoming one of my heroes.  I want a Dick Morris Fathead.  This guy is a true renegade.  He has absolutely no self-reflection.

#election2012 I think they are calling states way to soon. Stick around and watch the actual vote counts in Penn and Wisc

I agree as long as your liberties include liberties for gays, latino immigrants, african-americans and women.

I agree with you as well, as long as we are talking about legal latino-immigrants. The GOP really needs to soften their stance on these social issues as well. They are insignificant on a federal level.
