Election Day!
 
This has to warrant a thread on the main page, right?

Anyway, Happy Election day. About to hit the polls myself, so soon it'll be +1 vote for Tyrion Lannister.

(no, I'm not seriously voting for a fictional character)

I heard that Obama was showing an early lead. That is, until all the Republicans get off work and vote.;D Saw that on FB last night. Thought it was funny.

RhymesayersDU 11-06-2012 08:50 AM

Voted this morning.

RhymesayersDU 11-06-2012 08:50 AM

Also, Nuggies home opener tonight. Vote IGGY/LAWSON.

99% for me

Mogulseeker 11-06-2012 08:55 AM

I was 79 percent Gary Johnson, 76 Romney, 62 Obama.

Also, Nate Silver has been incredibly accurate with his predictions:

YOU FOOL! Gary Johnson cannot stop me! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!
I will destroy this nation and bring your Joe's or Marines or whatever
you call your pathetic little corps to their knees!
YOU WILL KNEEL BEFORE ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Also, Garys views on managing marijuana like alcohol and tobacco regulating, taxing and enforcing its lawful use are just a bit too liberal for me.
Also, i read your book....not bad.

This isn't over yet? I voted 10 days ago.

Boobs McGee 11-06-2012 09:00 AM

Happy voting everyone! I'd rather have a one armed badass than a noseless badass, so Jamie Lanister 2012!

Boobs McGee 11-06-2012 09:02 AM

Oh, and for the conspiracy theorists out there, apparently there's some voter fraud happening already:

This.

Go Romney! It's a pretty long shot, but I got hope!

ColoradoDarin 11-06-2012 09:12 AM

Took 30 minutes to vote this morning compared to 2010 (I moved to FL in 2009) where I didn't have to wait at all. The line was longer about an hour ago when my daughter and I went out for walk.

He got every senate race correct except for three (the coin flips in Colorado and Alaska, along with the surprise in Arizona). The one in Arizona was most definitely an issue with the polling data.

He struggled a bit with the house races, but that makes sense. Polling data for individual district races tends to be sparse. It's hard to have a good statistical model without data.

Essentially his models have been shown to work well when there is a lot of data available. For a presidential election that is most definitely true.

Rohirrim 11-06-2012 09:16 AM

I was going to vote, until some ****ing nihilist threw a ****ing marmot in my bathtub and ****ed up my rug. And now I'm out of half and half. I don't have time for this ****.
