  • Poll: Virginia governor race a nailbiter

    10/30/2013 7:47:21 AM PDT · by Gopher Broke · 67 replies
    With less than a week until Election Day, Virginia gubernatorial hopeful Terry McAuliffe holds a slim lead over Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli in a tightening race, according to a new poll on Wednesday. McAuliffe leads Cuccinelli among likely voters 45 percent to 41 percent, with 9 percent for Libertarian candidate Robert Sarvis, according to a Quinnipiac University poll. The edge is within the poll’s margin of error. The poll also found that if Sarvis were not in the race, likely voters would split for McAuliffe 47 percent to 45 percent, which Quinnipiac describes as “too close to call.” Last...

    There was widespread confusion following the announcement of Istanbul's victory over Madrid to decide the first round of voting here in the race to host the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games as many presumed that Istanbul had won, not the first round, but the whole competition. Istanbul defeated Madrid in an elimination decider after the pair had initially tied behind first round winners Tokyo But, as Madrid's fate was sealed, a huge chant of "Istanbul, Istanbul" erupted around the media room as a large Turkish press contingent celebrated what they believed to be the countries first victory at the fifth...

    What if the 2012 Presidential Election Ends in a Tie? October 25, 2012 Thomas Fitzgerald The final days of a close race for the White House, like the one now unfolding between President Obama and Mitt Romney, are always loud, tense, and messy, but most end with a clear result. What if this year is different, and Nov. 6 is only the beginning of the chaos? What if it ends in a tie? An Electoral College tie -- with each man getting 269 votes instead of the 270 needed to win -- is possible, analysts say, a result that would...

    Police say a South African man who wanted to watch a World Cup match instead of a religious program was beaten to death by his family in the northeastern part of the country. David Makoeya, a 61-year-old man from the small village of Makweya, Limpopo province, fought with his wife and two children for the remote control on Sunday because he wanted to watch Germany play Australia in the World Cup. The others, however, wanted to watch a gospel show.

    Gallup has Obama up 49-47 with a margin of error of 2%. Have you heard that anywhere today? Of course not. The media neeeeeds this to be over right now. Anything that contradicts that template is utterly disregarded. Gallup took some heat for changing their party weighting to include more Democrats, which accounted for Obama's inflated numbers over the last couple of weeks. So they decided to do three polls, one of Registered Voters (RV) (useless as a predictor), Likely Voters (LV), and a new "Traditional" Likely Voters (TLV), which reflects the, well, traditional weighting of the parties. So here...
  • An electoral college 'doomsday'? Scholars speculate on havoc of 269 tie

    On Nov. 5, the presidential election winds up in a electoral-college tie, 269-269, the Democrat-controlled House picks Sen. Barack Obama as president, but the Senate, with former Democrat Joe Lieberman voting with Republicans, deadlocks at 50-50, so Vice President Dick Cheney steps in to break the tie to make Republican Sarah Palin his successor. "Wow," said longtime presidential historian Stephen Hess. "Wow, that would be amazing, wouldn't it?" "If this scenario ever happened, it would be like a scene from the movie 'Scream' for Democrats," said Democratic strategist Mary Anne Marsh. "The only thing worse for the Democrats than losing...

During a campaign stop yesterday at a Boca Raton, Fla., synagogue, Obama was asked about his association with Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi, who has made repeated statements supportive of Palestinian terrorism.

    Rasmussen has the crucial Florida contest a four-way tie for the Republican primary, with Fred Thompson not far back in fifth place. John McCain leads by a single point at the moment, with Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, and Rudy Giuliani all within two points of the current holder of Big Mo.

It’s McCain 19%, Giuliani...

    Tie ban for doctors to stop spread of MRSA By Alex Berry Last Updated: 2:35am GMT 18/12/2006 Doctors have been ordered to ditch their ties over fears they are spreading the deadly hospital superbug MRSA. An NHS trust has also told all its staff involved in direct patient care not to wear jewellery, wrist watches, scarves or any "superfluous clothing". Even consultants have been warned that being smartly-dressed when giving patients bad news could present an infection risk. The move, by Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust, follows a report by the British Medical Association calling for doctors to...

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 3, 2005 – Re-enlistment rates for the Army and Marine Corps are the highest they've been in a long time, specifically in units with high deployment tempos, military leaders told the House Armed Services Committee here today. Testifying at a committee hearing, titled "Your Troops: Their Story," the leaders said that soldiers and Marines re-enlist because they believe in the mission they are performing, and they feel comfortable knowing their families will be taken care of while they are deployed. "Our soldiers know that while they're deployed, while they're forward, they don't have to worry about what's going...

    Terrorists tie bomb belt to dog in Iraq (Filed: 27/05/2005) Insurgents in Iraq attached explosives to a dog and tried to blow up a military convoy near the northern oil centre of Kirkuk. The canine bomb went off but the only casualty was the unfortunate animal, said police. The militants wrapped an explosive belt around the dog and detonated it as the convoy passed through Dakuk, 25 miles south of Kirkuk, said the town's police chief, Col Mohammed Barzaji. "The dog was torn apart by the explosion which caused neither injury among the soldiers nor any damage." Col Barzaji said...

    HELENA (AP) - A two-day recount of a Montana legislative race that will determine the balance of power in the state House resulted in a tie Tuesday, prompting an immediate legal challenge and sparking partisan allegations of wrongdoing. The tally of votes in House District 12 by Lake County officials showed Democrat Jeanne Windham of Polson and Constitution Party candidate Rick Jore of Ronan in a dead heat at 1,559 votes apiece. Initial results showed Jore with a two-vote lead. Windham, who contends five ballots were illegally counted for Jore, obtained a court order Tuesday that prohibits Secretary of State...

    Interested in becoming president this year? If so, hope for an electoral college tie. With an unlikely, but plausible, perfect tie -- 269 electoral votes for both George W. Bush and John Kerry -- anyone meeting the Constitutional qualifications for president could end up president. Here's how. Most people know the electoral college, and not popular vote, decides presidential elections. Many people also know that if no one gets a majority of electoral college votes the Constitution directs the House of Representatives to choose the President. This has happened twice (not counting 1876, a technically different situation) -- in the...

    GALLUP NEWS SERVICE PRINCETON, NJ -- The latest CNN/USA Today/Gallup survey shows a dead heat between Republicans and Democrats among likely voters in the race to gain majority control of the U.S. House of Representatives. Among registered voters, however, the Democrats enjoy a slight edge, and among all Americans, the Democratic lead is even larger. This same pattern is found on other evaluations of the two parties. Compared with the Republican Party, the Democratic Party is viewed more favorably among all adults, is chosen as the one more likely to represent the public's values, and is more likely to be...

    A U.S.-led assault on a compound controlled by an extremist Islamic group turned up a list of names of suspected militants living in the United States and what may be the strongest evidence yet linking the group to al-Qaida, coalition commanders said Monday. The cache of documents at the Ansar al-Islam compound, including computer discs and foreign passports belonging to Arab fighters from around the Middle East, could bolster the Bush administration's claims that the two groups are connected, although there was no indication any of the evidence tied Ansar to Saddam Hussein as Washington has maintained. There were indications,...

I have done this job for 26 years without wearing a tie and it has never affected my ability to do the job," said Jarman, from Birmingham in central England. "It is sexual discrimination.
