Post what you're seeing, hearing in your district, county or state during the day and evening- anecdotal or otherwise!
Yeah I’m pretty stoked too. Just counting the minutes to 6pm EST
This was in our local paper yesterday and made me laugh!
Yes, still fuming over that. That's why I think it would be the Ultimate Referendum if Christine won. Not only Obama, but the RINOS and Republican elite too.
C'mon Delaware, answer the Call!
Ah, yes, the ghost of Frankenfraud’s monster is stirring....
I think you are saying this is a joke, so you know that pic is of Black Jack Ketchum being hanged in Clayton, NM?
Keith Olbermann’s head just might explode tonight if O’Donnell wins.
I don’t think I could watch that!
Just heard an interview with Tom Jensen, pollster for PPP, on the Tara Sirvatius Show on WBT, Charlotte.
The question was, what is your message for Democrats today?
Tom answered “However bad you thought it was going to be, it’s going to be worse” (or words to that effect).
Turnout in my precinct (85% Obama in 2008) was heavy today. Covered by Republican poll workers - they and I stood out in the crowd. I dressed in my painting clothes so as not to stand out by my attire.
I could force myself.
The question was, what is your message for Democrats today?
Tom answered However bad you thought it was going to be, its going to be worse (or words to that effect).
This is actually not a bad message for all who have a habit of voting Democrat. It is bad only for those who insist on continuing to vote Democrat!
The reason it is likely to be much worse than the polls predict is that all polls are based on historic Dem vs Rep vs Ind voting patterns. Unfortunately for the Dems, a LOT of people who typically voted Dem are either staying home or are switching parties for this election.
Meanwhile, the liberal pollsters are slanting their figures in the OTHER direction by assuming higher than actual Dem turnout. The resulting swing could be MASSIVE!
Me too. At regular speed, and then again in slow motion.
Also frame by frame.
I want to watch that head explode. I can’t because that channel number has rusted over the years of non-use. CNN isn’t in my clicker.
rewind would be fun to watch.
Apples and Oranges argument since those were recount thefts. I would say Scott Brown and Chris Christie would be a closer example and destroys your argument. But hey, you have the favorite winning that seat so we shall see who is “braying” and who is throwing cold water.
Pray for the election
Back from 4 of us voting straight ticket! No lines, but steady flow. We were #210, but a lot of early ballots in the box. They checked IDs and addresses thoroughly and one guy, whose address on the DL was the old address and didn’t match the voting record. He had to bring in his car registration to show that that it matched with the voter registration roll. I was impressed. :D
I held my nose and voted McCain only because the Senate is so important right now. Any other time, I would have voted for the Libertarian.
Ballot box man was the same guy that was there for the primaries. He said the turnout was higher, but the most traffic comes at the end of the day.
Maybe it will be on Youtube. Maybe we can download it.
Just got home from work. Got beer chillin’ for the long night ahead. Voted. Carl Paladino, if you must know. Any major developments yet? I don’t want to go through 500+ posts.
I talked to my Dad in PA - Washington County. As of 1:00 p.m. approx. 100 showed up which is low. However, I can count on one hand how many Repubs there are from my hometown. At least 20 lifelong Dems, which are friends and relatives of the family, voted for an Repub. for the first time.
A campaign worker for a local Dem was speaking to my parents unaware that they were conservatives. She was frantic saying the Dem voters weren’t showing up and was bashing a neighboring town that has a very strong Dem majority. In contrast, she said that another neighboring town had 400 ballots by 1:00, mostly Repub., showing an extremely high Repub. turnout. She then went on to say that Republicans are liars...yada, yada, yada....:)
Exit polls for statewide races should start coming out very shortly.
Of course, Montana didn't have Senators back then. So his career choices were limited.
Thanks! I needed that!
If so, I might try capturing a screen-cap for my desktop.
Bump for later cheering!
I vote in a little one-room schoolhouse in rural Idaho. I had to park down the road this morning. No room. Never saw the like. I don’t think it means a lot since this is a pretty conservative area anyway, but if it’s that passionate here I can only hope it translates to areas more in play. Cross fingers and Eagles Up!
Hey man, I’d love to be wrong, but if I recall correctly you were predicting a 2008 win for the R’s too, right up until Tuesday evening. I hope you’re right, but no amount of “positive thinking” will prevent voter fraud on a scale so massive we’ve yet to grasp it.
Just voted PA-19. Steady. About 35% turn out and they are saying at this rate they may close at 45%.
You can’t imagine the number of people (the last three weeks), calling me to ask who THEY should vote for.
The Lib/Reds are telling the seniors ‘You know the republicans will take your social security for sure’.
Damn, can’t they get a new one already.
Yeah, and I predicted 100+ for the past year when everyone else was predicting Dem wins and predicted both GW wins. No amount of “negative thinking” will make a loss any easier to take either.
Still don’t know why throwing water on a Christine supporter does any good?
Pray for the Election
Tell you what, I’ll offer an olive branch. Name what you’d like me to “bray” in concession if COD does win a close race. If COD wins with under, say, 4 points margin (I know I said ten before but I was exaggerating; and remember, my contention is that R’s lose close elections because of vote-stealing) I’ll consider that I lost the bet and gladly own up to your superior election calling skills ;)
What a great loss that would be for me!! :D
Hey just read your profile page, nice write-up. The wind is at our sails!
Just wanted to let you know that I think you “misspoke” when you wrote King James. Probably should change it to King George.
We followed up w/ a stop @ Jack in the Box for delicious peach iced TEA.
And call me loony, but I think NYS's Senate seats may be in play....
OK, “you’re looney” but I hope you’re right.
“At one polling station in Arlington, Virginia, there has been a steady trickle of voters since 0700, says the BBC’s Claire Bolderson.”
“The area is a staunchly Democratic bastion with a Republican minority, says our correspondent.”
“All of those interviewed said government spending was their main concern, talking about the need for more “fiscal responsibility” in Washington.”
self ping for later
Didn’t realize you were in the area. I’m way North of the city, you?
In all the years I've lived here, and I'm a lifer, I've never seen anything like it...
So would I. Any word on what has transpired since then?
Yeah, I corrected it elsewhere and forgot it was on my profile page still.
The vote is still 0-0 and neither knows what the answer is but when she was down 20 pts 2 wks ago and 5-8 over the weekend, not sure why you should be so sure she is losing. Now we see weak Dem turnout and one of her supporters gets excited so you make a snarky comment. The glass is 1/10th empty routine bugs me.
Who cares if some people get excited on this board or if I am right or you are. We are both wishing for the same thing and until the vote is final neither of us knows for sure. This is going to be big and just a matter of how big.
That said, she will win.
Pray for the election
a miracle in New York ?
I dont have the exits, but folks I know in the media and political worlds are getting their first glimpses.
Indicator Number One: I am told that one Democratic strategist, helping a television network with Election Night analysis, just declared that the Democrats were experiencing something on par with mass murder. The GOP counterpart looked at the same numbers and concluded the Democrats are, so far, not getting the urban turnout they need; suburban and rural areas are seeing big turnouts.
Indicator Number Two: One Republican who is seeing early indicators in Florida says, if this holds, we win everything.
tell us more on what you saw/heard?
I wish people wouldn't say such things. It just gets my hopes up only to be disappointed when it doesn't materialize.
Sure hope I have to eat my earlier words regarding O’Donnell, but not letting myself become optimistic yet.
