making the electoral votes proportionally like Maine would be better.

The internet makes it possible to monitor trends in battleground counties of swing states that post data live (though not many do).

Here's a lean-Republican county in FL that seems promising for Romney if this translated across America (massive "If").


Pascoe County, FL - county has 12% more Republicans than Democrats, but 24% more Republicans than Democrats have voted so far

That's pretty astounding in that Rs are voting in twice their mathematical expectation in that county.

It's safe to assume you're a rich republican then!

Funny story about exit polls. My buddy and I used to go voting together, and would usually tell the people at the exit polls I voted for the opposite candidate who I did vote for. It's because idiots like us that the exit polls are skewed!

Exit polls are garbage. Plug your ears when those are being reported today.

Ya, I figured that if somebody exit polled me, I was going to just smirk and say, "who do you think I voted for?" Brown man in a suit, that's a tossup of conflicting assumptions. From the neck up, Democrat, neck down, Republican.

I want to vote again today. Can I vote multiple times? If they want, I'll switch up one or two of my selections. They'll never know since its not an identical ballot.


Really I just like how the things light up on the little machine. Makes it fun.

Anecdotal evidence is anecdotal, but.... good sign for Romney.

Obama won this county with 53% in 2008

EDIT: Seriously, if Romney wins OHIO but Obama wins VIRGINIA this thing gets cooky

Here's one Big Government tax-payer funded program I'd support.

Forcing Americans who say the above to go through with it, all expenses paid.

Unfortunately the global web would still link everyone together.

Too bad I had to graduate and get a job before the election. Living in Vancouver would be a blast.

I would love a two-week, all expenses paid vacation out of the country. But I would want to come back. I kinda like America.

And why is that, exactly? How does Romney getting elected drastically change life for you?

Remember when you were a kid and there was always one whiny ****** kid who would take ball and go home or quit during a game because they didn't get there way

Well those people grew up and every 4 years they claim they will leave America if there person doesn't win

1. Guy who won’t tell you who he is voting for -
Chappelle was right, the things we share with other people to then not share who we’re voting for is patently ridicolous. But for me its more than that. Today is the one day of the year that I have to talk about politics with strangers and people I bump into. Its like the day before the Super Bowl, or the day before a big storm. Its no different than saying, “hey who do you like in the big game?” or “How about that snow we’re about to get”. I’m not talking to you about politics because I want to. I’m doing it because I have to. Because that’s what people do today. So don’t be a pretentious ******* and say “its private” or “I voted for the president”. **** you man. Our conversation is going to last for 15 seconds. See if you can last FIFTEEN seconds without being a total *********.

2. Sticker Person -

Google images really came through with the perfect “Sticker People”
“I Voted”. Thanks Dude! I jerked off today, you don’t see me wearing a sticker saying “I Masturbated!”. These people are the same people that wear their marathon medals around town. No different. They want credit for doing something a monkey could do. Like you remember the World Cup a couple years ago when they had that Squid picking games? That proves it right there. A squid could vote. A ****ing squid. You’re not special. You don’t need a sticker. You don’t need a pat on the back. Just vote and be done with it. If you feel the need to wear a sticker around all day you probably have a small penis.
See Also the “I Voted” people on Facebook. They’re just new age sticker people.

3. I’m Moving to Canada

These people might be the worst. “If so and so doesn’t win I’m moving to Canada”. No you’re not you ****ing drama queen. If so and so wins nothing in your day to day life is changing. Literally NOTHING. So stop looking for attention by telling everyone how awful candidate X is. Its all the same. You’re staying exactly where you are. No one is moving to Canada because Canada is ****ing weird. You know it, I know it, and the whole world knows it, so just shut up and deal with losing like a man (ie get drunk and say racist things or make fun of mormons depending on what side wins).

It probably doesn't for most people, but there are social effects. Like I said before, Obamacare and Roe v Wade probably fall if Romney wins.

The hilarity begins when Romney supporters start claiming they want to go to Canada if he loses. I think they would run screaming from "Canuckistan" after they realise that it's even more socialist than they think this place is.

I'm a white, middle-class Protestant male. If I weren't one or two of those, I'd feel the same way. Especially if I weren't a dude.
