    We had a thread like this in 2008 and it was pretty popular. We are now one week out from election day. Early voting is taking place across the country. Has anyone taken part in early voting? Are any of you volunteering for a political campaign? Are you waiting to cast your vote on election day? Is anyone planning on attending or hosting an election night "watch party"?

    This thread is for all things general election and election day! (Including crowd reports and the results!)

    Discuss. :yay:

    Wow, the old thread maxed out quick. Just waiting for Obama to stop being lazy and give his speech, and I can finally switch off of the news, lol.

    Obama needs to come out, say "Sharia Law starts Jan 20 beeyotches!" and then just walk away.

    I'll miss Dick Lugar in the Senate, only because I love his name.

    Hollywood is happy today. Their guy won.

    I'm surprised to hear word of actual increases in the voting rates among younger demographics. The apathy towards the process and the ambivalence towards the candidates that I've observed would not point to it. Good to hear regardless.

    Ironically the people who fear America having Sharia Law probably would love most aspects of it governing us. lol

    Just look at the reader comments on the FOX News site. You are right, Marvelo.

    Obama won Hispanics 71-27, even better than 2008, which was 67-31.

    I am having such fun with angry Republicans on Facebook. One woman labelled me a "trader" and then posted something so absurd that I don't really know what in the Hell it meant. If I had to guess it'd be something about Muslims and losing freedom and the end of America.

    woohooooo

    while he was down about 1000 votes a few minutes ago new count has come in and Graves is beating Bachmann by 187 votes(78% in)

    http://www.cnn.com/election/2012/results/state/MN/house

    What a sweet night if both Alan West and Michelle Bachmann lose, on the negative side both probably will get jobs at FOX

    ETA: no sooner do I mention that then she is up again D'Oh

    To say Barack f'ing killed his speech would be an understatement. Best I have seen from him since he first Iowa in January 2008. Just made me want to get up and say YES!

    Very good. The only real surprises is it looks like Virginia and Florida are going for Obama. the rest fell into place and he had a great victory. If both of those states stay blue, Nate Silver should send Dick Morris, Joe Scarborough and Karl Rove some tissues to wipe away the tears.

    I am happy for the country tonight. I would like to think it means the GOP will realize that their anti-minority, anti-progress, anti-Obama frenzy is self-destructive and a return to adult governess and reasonableness is needed....but I know that will not be the case, at least as long as Obama is president. Oh well. At least it will mean the left has an advantage in presidential elections for the foreseeable future.

    Colorado surprised me to be honest. I didn't expect Obama to win by as much 4%, but I guess he did on the power of marijuana. lol
