Green Room

Turnout is looking strong

posted at 8:15 pm on November 6, 2012 by

The year of Hopenchange pushed a record total of 131 million people to the polls; will the year of Hopenchange Disenchantment turn people out in near or equal numbers? Emphasis mine:

Turnout appears to be high in many parts of the country, with long waits at some polling places as voters deliver their Election Day verdict. …

Anecdotal reports from across the country suggested voters were enthusiastically making their voices heard. Long lines were reported from Michigan to Florida, from Nebraska to South Carolina.

In Virginia, election officials said statewide turnout would likely meet or exceed the 2008 Presidential Election. Pennsylvania officials said they expected about 70 percent of the state’s nearly 8.5 million voters would turn out by the time polls closed.

Based on exit polling FOX has pretty much all but said that Obama won… this is tough to watch

…and all the senate seats are leaning dem.

What happened to “It’s a lock!..Romney 300+ EV’s?

Apparently far too many of the American people have short attention spans and can be swayed by a bomber jacket and a fat governor crying about being touched by an aging rock star.
Great.

I’m sure Philly will have 110% turnout again thanks to that time period when they kicked Republican poll watchers out of the polls.

In MA they are calling it for Warren. I can’t even start to tell you how disgusted I am to be a resident of MA.

BOR makes yet another dunder-headed mistake referring to Zero’s lead of independents in NH by 8%– it is only 2, which is down significantly from 2008.
