Election Night Open, Thread Three

In the early stages, Obama leads
Politics • Views: 22,384

Still way too early to make any realistic predictions, but Ohio is looking really good for Obama right now. Only 2% of the vote reported, but Obama is leading by 57.3% to Romney’s 41.5%.

Florida is much closer, but with 39% of the vote reported, Obama has the edge with 50.6% to Romney’s 48.6%.

Don’t be fooled. FOX is nearly as left as the rest of the media.
They’re probably unhappy that Obama is losing.

Millions was spent by outside groups to take him down.

I'm beginning to think Nate Silver is God.

In the final pre-election forecast at FiveThirtyEight, the state of Florida was exceptionally close. Officially, Mr. Obama was projected to 49.797 percent of the vote there, and Mr. Romney 49.775 percent, a difference of two-hundredths of a percentage point.

So far, voting results for Florida appear to be exactly in line with what Nate was predicting.

Welp, the Confederacy is voting for Whitey McFatcat... I guess that's a given. Popular vote appears to favor Mittens at the moment, too. Will the same electoral system that denies my vote's effectiveness, hand Barry the victory? Tune in at midnight to see...

Let us take a moment to mourn the extinction of a political species, the Blue Dog. Hunted to the verge of extinction in 2010, one of the last ones that I am aware of, my friend Ben Chandler, has just been bagged by Tea Partyer Andy Barr in the 6th Congressional District in Kentucky. Millions was spent by outside groups to take him down.

It's worth noting that this is really key. It's really hard to buy a Presidency or a lot of Senators, as we're seeing today. But House seats are pretty cheap, and give a lot of power for your money.

The Presidency and Senate don't look like changing hands, but America's political power is still very much for sale, and a lot of unpleasant people have deep pockets.

The Presidency and Senate don't look like changing hands, but America's political power is still very much for sale, and a lot of unpleasant people have deep pockets.

And, of course, devolving power to state and local levels makes it much easier to buy it up (e.g., railroads and state legislatures, back in the day). Reason #137 why "states rights" is a crock.

329 blueraven  Tue, Nov 6, 2012 6:33:32pm

from 538

In every presidential election since 1960, the candidate who prevailed in
Florida’s Hillsborough County, home to Tampa, has also prevailed in Florida. There is no guarantee that the pattern will hold in 2012, but the Tampa region is critical in carrying the Sunshine State (which is why the Republican Party held their national convention there this year).

More than 80 percent of the vote has been reported in Hillsborough, and President Obama leads Mitt Romney by five percentage points. Mr. Obama, as we have written, is likely getting a push from Florida’s fast-growing Hispanic community. In Hillsborough, Hispanic residents have grown by 71 percent since 2000, now accounting for a quarter of the county’s population.

Mr. Obama is also leading in another Florida bellwether, Pinellas County, Hillsborough County’s eastern neighbor. In Pinellas, 99 percent of the vote has been reported, and Mr. Obama is edging out Mr. Romney 52 percent to 47 percent.

That may be true now but I believe one of the parties will take a closer look and may wind up voting against PR statehood. They will be afraid of diluting their power. Plus I think it takes a two thirds majority vote to pass.
