ELECTION DAY November 6, 2012 ***LIVE THREAD I***
FREE REPUBLIC!!! | 11-6-12 | Free Republic

Posted on 11/06/2012 3:18:47 AM PST by RKBA Democrat

The polls are open on the east coast!!

From this morning's election day prayer thread:

"Heavenly Father may you forgive this nation and its people for the many awful sins that we have commited against you. We do not deserve the wonderful ways we have been blessed and please forgive us for our indifference,neglect and complacency towards you. May you forgive us who are members of your Church who have neglected our calling and commitment to you to be effective witnesses and stewards of the many blessings you have generously bestowed upon us. Many of us have cried out to you for the past few years as never before and we humbly beseech you to bring an overwhelming, crushing defeat on the forces of darkness in our nation. First we pray that you quicken your Church by your spirit and lead us to unity to stand against the onslaught of darkness upon us. May you smash every crooked deed as evil men and women try to hold onto power and may this be so convincing that everyone knows that your hand is in this. Then we may bring the light of your Gospel to our people who do not know you and to the nations of the world.

May you block and undo every policy and piece of legislation they have passed that is harmful to this nation. May you make every policy they make fail and may you turn the hearts of the multitudes against them. May you thwart every evil deed they try to divide this nation with. May you bring their own mischief upon them ten fold. May you punish those in our government who are lawless traitors and enemies of the Constitution by exposing them and deliver them into our hands for justice. However we also pray that through this that you open their eyes to the truth and in your mercy that you bring these people to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ to serve as a witness to many. May you also use this to bring revival across our nation and a restoration of a culture that glorifies You. We also pray for those just leaders in our government who are struggling against the lawless. We pray for your protection and that you embolden them to do what is right to triumph in the election and in the arena of ideas. May you also continue to open the hearts and minds of the American people to the the truth and draw them towards yourself to be renewed in repentance and spiritual rebirth.

And this we humbly ask in Jesus name. AMEN!"

“I always assumed that about 99% of all the people here ranting they could never vote for Romney would end up doing so - most of them probably won’t admit it”

Please. If I wanted condescension - I’d be going to Democrat Underground. Anyways, going to be heading out here in a bit to go vote for Virgil Goode.

“he doesn’t win, nobody would have won.”

Not true.

“Romney was the best candidate”

Also not true. Romney actually has negative coattails - people are more willing to support the republicans downballot than him. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Republicans increase their congressional representation, win the Senate and Romney loses.

They are already here and have been for about two weeks. Busloads of vans with Illinois plates and Obama signs on them.

Went to vote at the West Chester Library in Boehner’s district (across from the site of the Friday night Romney rally)at 6:30am. Long lines in a very Republican district, (Boehner is running unopposed this year) are a good sign.

Did not vote, because I had to be at work at 7. Will vote right after work, before the evening rush.

I’d rather complain about Romney, than suffer under Obama.

“....of all the people here ranting they could never vote for Romney would end up doing so - most of them probably won’t admit it, but I’m pleasantly surprised how many have....”

I’m one of those folks. When Romney started out, I vowed to never vote for Mittens. I have to eat those words today because I did. Not because I fully agreed with his past performance, but because it was the right thing to do for our country. I think the “game changer” point for me was when he picked Paul Ryan for his VP, and then his performance in the first debate really cinched it. On the other side of the coin, the GOP could have run a south Texas Havilina hog against odongo and I probably would have voted for the hog.

Went to vote shortly after polls opened at 7 am here in SC. Heavy turnout - about 200 people in line - waited 1 hour to vote.

My precinct is overwhelmingly Republican and many of the down-ticket offices have R's running unopposed. People in this red state are excited about voting here regardless.

We've been waiting for this day for 4 long years!!

That’s a black majority, heavily Rat city.

Low turnout there this morning is a good sign.

I think lines as an indicator have too many variables to determine anything. The line depends on the number of factors, including the machines available, the number of voting decisions, the efficiency of the staff, route changes, and timing. People often come in waves.

Heavy rain and t-storms in Tampa Bay, Florida. Steady stream of voters at the poll. No line outside the door at this hour. Poll greeter said there was a line at 6:30AM.

Romney left nothing on the table and has run as good a campaign as we could ever have hoped for.

I feel very differently than 2008 regardless of what happens.

And i want to again thank JR for bringing all of us together on this site when a few months ago it seemed like the wheels were falling off the wagon.

II just finished voting. Turnout among older voters was way up, and there was aa decent wait to get in. Even better, on the way over, II didn’t see aa single Obama sign. In 08, the one’s propaganda was everywhere.

Now I’m going to head home and make calls until Romney has his Pittsburgh rally later this afternoon.

Arrived at the Northern VA (deep blue) polling place about 5:30 this morning, there were already about 75 people ahead of me. This was a good thing, since in ‘08 there were about 200 people ahead of me the same time - all apparently Obama voters.

There looked to be a lot of Republican volunteers handing out sample ballots, only 2 Democrat volunteers. The poll opened at 6:00. Took about 1.5 hours to vote.

I saw the Republican poll watcher - same fellow as in ‘08. I thanked him for his work, he smiled and said “Glad to do my job.”

Exactly. I’m in one of the few sane areas left in Western Fairfax Co VA. Our box is heavily GOP but can do dumb things in bad years. Bush 2000 barely carried it, went big Bush in 04, McCain underperformed 08. Was insane this morning but line shorter than last two elections b/c they have the registration data on computer and got rid of he paper registration print outs.

FWIW, we have 4 e-machines in there and one paper reader. I was 189 on the paper machine alone at 7:45. The most votes ever cast in that box as a whole is around 800-900. Almost all will be Romney.

Voted here in Upstate NY in the North Country. This is a strong Romney county; it went for McCain in 08. Steady as always. People vote here every year, national election or not. One of the few places in NY where people still feel it is their duty to vote. You know, typical clingers. ;)

Not a voting report, but here is the final social media analysis from the NBC elections website.

This section of their site basically tracks buzz and candidate support on Facebook and Twitter.

Romney ended yesterday with a 4-point lead in expressed support. Online comments were -16 toward Obama. Online comments regarding Romney were -4. I will note this is a big move back to Romney post-Sandy, when Obama retook the lead for awhile.

I will be interested to see if this reflects turnout and the vote today.

I just voted in west Omaha at the Jewish Community Center. There was about a 15 minute wait to vote and the lady working the ballot box said people were lined up when they opened. This is a predominantly white area of town and everybody voting was white.

Volvo Republican/Hurricane Sandy area in eastern Monmouth County, New Jersey -- NO wait for either voting or gas this morning. (This is typical -- I work at home, so I try to slip in to vote around 9:30 AM after the NY commuters leave and before the soccer moms arrive.)

Other 2 precincts at the polling place had lines. MANY more Republican signs around than I can ever remember.

Few Obama signs. This is a change from 2008. Keeping fingers crossed.

Prayer to Saint Michael

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the Divine Power of God,
cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
