Election Day Game Thread

Unread postby peeker643 » Tue Nov 06, 2012 10:03 am

Every four years this day (and definitely NOT the months and days leading up to it) is like three weeks of the Olympics in a 16 hour period.

I love the excitement.

I love getting to the polling place at 630am and seeing the vets and the people lined up to vote.

I enjoy the day itself.

Wondering about turnout through the day. I can tell you at first light it was pretty heavy at my polling location. I expect turnout to be pretty big throughout the day.

Wondering if others seeing the same thing.

I can't stand all the idiots telling everyone to vote.

Why would you want someone to vote that doesn't vote the same way you do, it cancels out your vote and thus makes your effort irrelevant. The only people I want to vote are the people who vote exactly like I did.



Look I am Nate Silver, once I go 50 for 50 I want e0y2e3 to bow to me and erupt when people disagree with my methodology.

Romney - NC, FL, VA, CO
Obama - OH, IA, WI, PA, NV, NH

:lmfao:

I agree with Ziner's post, and also his state predictions. I think Obama is going to win and it will be official around midnight.

Also agree with Peeker. I love Election Day. I will never vote absentee or early. I love all the chaos of standing in line and seeing the democratic process in action. The day has a cool buzz to it, and I lover getting home and drinking Christmas Ale and watching cable news all night. Twitter will make it even better this year.

I love the theatrics of American politics in general, even if the inefficiency of it drives me crazy. While I strongly belive that Romney is the right President for America at this juncture, I'll lose no sleep (thanks in part to the Christmas Ale) or be angry tonight when Obama is announced the winner. I think it is absolutely the wrong decision by the residents of the battleground states that will go to Obama, but I can understand why it's happening even if I disagree with it. Regardless of who wins, this is still by far the best country in the world to live in and my life will be affected minimally.

Thank you for saving that hard-hitting analysis for the game thread. Certainly couldn't have gone anywhere else. Not to mention it's a stunningly negative opinion of people which is a complete departure from your normal points :thumb up:

My polling location was busy as well around 6:30.

I like voting better than I like the choices I get to vote on, but that doesn't diminish the day. It is the other 364 that it rains on.

Went to vote at 7:45am. Two precincts voting at my location. Other precinct had a line of about 15 people, mostly white male senior citizens. My precinct had no line, but the two tables are right next to one another. Female poll worker asked to see my ID and I politely shoot back with, "I thought we didn't have to show ID anymore in Ohio." This response immediately brings about a dozen death stares over in my direction and a few of the old guys begin to mutter under their breath. The poll worker says very quietly, "I need to see something that says you actually live where you say you live".

"Good, I'm glad you asked to see my ID and I think everyone should have to show it".

The old men approve of this response and nod accordingly. I even got a "damn right". Although now I might be investigated for using influential political speech at a polling place. And I'll probably be on featured on The Al Sharpton Show tonight as a racist.

My predictions for the states match Ziner's. I also predict that I'll finish off my bottle of Jack Daniel's tonight and have an annoying headache tomorrow.

Would you care to comment on the election day experience or just toss around more tired pablum? Is there a specific issue that has you calling people retarded fags or is that a general observation based on years of analysis and deliberation?

The Republicans want to drag this country back into the 19th century. Which is fine if you don't give a shit about their stupid policies and only love ridiculous facial hair.

Stupid policies and facial hair built this country!!!!!!!!!!!!! Barry wants yo' guns!!!!!

;-) ;) :wink:

I didn't take the time to notice the facial hair phenomena this morning at the poling place. Too effin early. I almost walked into the wrong room for my location. Caught myself in time though. Had I made it to the table to sign in and been told I was in wrong area it would have immediately violated my own rule about being too stupid to vote if you don't know which line to stand in.

Would have been a self-imposed ban for me.

Lady about four spots ahead me wasn't even in right building and guy ahead of her was told, "Right church, wrong pew. You're on other side of the building, sir". These are the people determining the fate of the country. :thumb up:

Today should be more like peeker stated originally, but the truth is we are closer to what eye said.

EOD all you can ask of people is to inform themselves as best they can for the votes they are going to cast. As far as people being in the wrong spot, a bit confused, eh, it happens. Some voting places are not set up or run very efficiently, and it's not like we vote every week. I notice it is usually the elderly or young adults voting for the first time that seem out of place.

If they vote for the person I want I won't hold that against them.

If I had my way, parties would be abolished and a pamphlet would be handed out to everyone as they walked in that listed all the candidates for all the elective positions, and for each candidate there would be a list of 10 "key" topics and their positions on said topics along with a brief space for them to make a statement.

Then people would be at least mildly informed about the candidates they're voting for rather than just lemming-ly voting down party lines.

One thing I know for sure is that any candidate who has an ad running tomorrow and beyond goes on my permanent "Never Vote For" list. And whichever station runs it is dead to me as well.

I did like this subtle suggestion in a Philadelphia poling station:

Haha, dropped my son at school and proceeded to the church where I normally vote. Not a car in the lot. I guess my spot is back at the middle school where it used to be. However, it is such a madhouse in the parking lot just from parents dropping off kids that I figure I will go after work. Then I hear this afternoon there is a fatal accident on the highway where I get on and the highway is closed all the way from downtown Columbus to 270 near Polaris. No way I get home in time unless I leave now, which I shall do. I think I have it pretty good in the burbs where I live. The line is never too bad, 5-20 minutes usually. People in Columbus often end up waiting for several hours to vote. That is probably a major factor in the poor turnout in urban areas.

I do have a friend that promised me a 6 pack (cheap bastard) of Christmas Ale if I vote for Romney. As I see no way that my single vote counts I'm tempted to take him up on it. However, that does seem like some bad karma, or whatever.

So I'll probably do it like a trua 'Murican and vote for my guy, tell him I voted for Romney, and collect the hooch. I can justify it with the legitimate possiblity that my mache cast is a PA edition and my vote was cast for Romney no matter who's box I checked.

Happened last week in Ohio. Romney votes were marked Obama. Not an isolated incident. Similar things were reportedly happening in North Carolina and Texas.

Probably happens all the time.

I don't understand why these fucking people need to be Instagramming their ballots or posting shit to Youtube. Just vote and be done with it.

Whichever side is smart enough to manipulate the process to the point that gives them a victory is the one I want to win the thing.

Let the dumber losers cry. Either way, right or left.

Good for them.

Still a fun show to watch.

Just a matter of which cries 'foul' at this time tomorrow. The only guarantee right now, at 4:29pm on Election Day, is that one party will cry 'foul'.

If Silver is right, I will be impressed. Won over, even.
Till then, I'm still skeptical of a model that averages various polls and adds a layer of spin.

Fascinated, but I'll be so glad when this is over.

I walked in, voted, and am now watching Gunsmoke. I said all along I thought it was a Romney landslide. At this point, a Romney win by any margin would be a landslide. The momo definitely has an Obama feel, but Kerry had the same thing going and lost.

I assure you the poo came outta my ass, and my mind is still plenty full of shit. Agree with CDT satisfying feeling. Kinda like how I will feel at the conclusion of this election.

Are you implying High Life is only suitable for chaos and disorder? 'Cause it's not. It's also suitable for chess and cerebral discourse on the role of Jeffersonian Democracy in large, advanced societies.

In cans too.

E-War (E Dub?), In a blindfold test, would you know the difference between Miller High Life and Milwaukee's Best Light?

From my younger days, I know that canned Milwaukees Best Light blows up in a campfire quite spectacularly.

I believe I would. A more difficult test is HL Light and Miller Lite.

Dare I say the senate election is more important than POTUS.

Ginsburg retiring is pretty big though.

If Romney wins, you know he'll put some religitard psychopath on the SCOTUS.

Probably. They follow a guy who had a magic hat.

Women can't have abortions because a guy with a magic hat said so.

I imagine something awful like that.

What I love the last few days are the Anti-Romney Internet Memes that say "Don't set the country back 50 years!!"

Wasn't the economy roaring 50 years ago? Who wouldn't want that? What shit do I give about anything else you may be referring to?
