I live in Ohio, and my husband came home early so we could pack our lawn chairs and umbrellas and vote. Turns out, deputy was there, two local candidate supporters, and us. We were 100 something. VERY strong Republican area I live in.
We usually vote after work (me in my Nancy Reagan red Liz Claiborne suit) and have to wait in line, and the place is PACKED with folks passing out literature for their candidates. Has always been this way - since 1995.
It is also the time Kucinich's thugs start roughing folks up at the polls to drive out GOP voters (we moved out of his district when he won).
Yep, I would say you are right based on this anecdotal information. ; )

3 hours?! I'm glad our country is important enough to people that they're willing to do this. When we left this am for the polls, I was ready -- armed with lots of books, coloring pages and crayons. I'm glad we didn't need them.

Three hours. Amazing.

I hope other states are not incorrect like Texas is on that map as far as poll closing time. It says 8pm CST. Not correct. It is 7pm CST.

Those voters wanting change want to have terrorists attack us again HERE instead of fighting them THERE?

Those voters wanting change want Kerry to win because he changes his positions from one day to the next?

Those voters wanting change want Terayzah in the WH instead of Laura Bush?

Those voters wanting change want a president who outsources our troops to the corrupt UN instead of leading our troops in defending our nation?

Those voters wanting change want to have a president who has a 20 year record of voting AGAINST funding intelligence and troops instead of one who has been steadfast in his support of both?

Change for the sake of change is not a wise course......especially in time of war, and we are at war w/those who want to kill us all. President Bush wants to CHANGE that fact to a victory over our enemies. That's the only change we as Americans should want.

I saw that! Laura Ingraham has about 100 IQ point advantage on Estrich. That was an ugly session without a doubt, but Laura got in the last word. Estrich was reading notes throughout. She makes my teeth hurt. Oh and one more face lift and she'll have a goatee.

Not really.
They threw everything at him, and they couldn't drive down his approval.
His dad's approval was 35% when he ran in 1991.
You overestimate their reach.

"A personal note of disappointment:

Why can't the American People at least make up their freaking minds?"

Here's why: follow the money trail or the power trail. They either claim to be undecided in order to pressure those who are running to promise them more of whatever it is they want (usually financial handouts in one form or another). Or, it makes them feel powerful, as if they are in the catbird seat and the politicians are running around trying to please them to get them to decide. Either way, these who are undecided in the last week and who are swayed by stories that are obvious propaganda (such Bush's DUI from the 70's in the last weeks of the 2000 election) are harmful to the democratic process. I'd rather they not vote at all.

Right now Michael Barone is on Fox giving a convoluted explanation of how they will call an election for a state. It has to do with statistical analysis that there is a 1 in 300 chance they are wrong. This is a tighter standard, he says. Last time it was 1 in 250. (Big whoop, I say. Why can't they just give us the totals and wait until the votes are counted?)

If there are long lines, voting continues until the line is gone. I don't know how they cap the line at the closing time.

Very true. I don't know how they do it in other states, but in Wisconsin, an election official heads to the end of the line at 8 pm (CST; the closing time here).

If Bush shut down the border and cut off illegals he would be ahead 60+% right now, IMHO.

That this nation could even consider anyone with the history of John Kerry is beyond me.

I agree, but then I didn't think Clinton could get re-elected either.

Talked with my source, who had seen early exits before announced publicly, he said nothing at all looked good - but then ended our conversation with a comment - despite that, "I still think Bush is going to win this thing." Told me not to worry.

Turnout was the heaviest I've seen it in five Presidential elections, by far. I waited an hour and twenty-five minutes to vote here in central South Carolina, and apparently that wasn't unusual. My particular precinct is an odd mixture of heavily Republican upper-middle-class suburbs, largely black low-income apartments, trailer parks, and rural areas, so you can imagine the very wide cross-section of folks that were in line--all races, all ages. Everybody was polite and friendly, and nobody spoke a word about who or what they were supporting.

South Carolina will roll big for Bush, and I feel fairly confident about Jim Demint winning the Senate seat and finally putting Senator Foghorn Hollings (D-Disney) out to pasture!
