Welcome everyone to the end. The end of the world. The end of the United States of America. The end of days. The end of the 2012 electoral season...maybe. Today, November 6th, 2012, marks the final time will see such lovely advertisements on our televisions, newspapers, internet sites and other forms of media featuring "prominent" politicians. The two most notorious of these beings are none other than President Barack Hussein Obama and Former Massachusetts Governor Willard Mitt Romney.

WHAT'S AT STAKE?
- The Presidency of the United States of America
- 33 seats of the United States Senate
- 435 seats of the United States House of Representatives
- 11 State Governors

In a few short hours, people will begin to do what feels like the right thing to do in this country. And that's play Halo 4. Seriously, have you seen the graphics? THEY LOOK AMAZING! Wait, what? A political election? Alright. I guess that's important too. Once people vote, they will begin to proclaim how great it is to vote and how great their country is only to berate it a few hours later once they realize that their candidate was vanquished in an electoral landslide. Which side will you land on this time?

22 of the 33 Senate seats up for grabs this time are expected to go to the incumbents. Regardless of which presidential candidate wins, they will have a tough time getting both parties to meet in the middle to get anything done.

We have 3 2012 election threads already. I don't think another one is going to kill us...now if we had another 2, that'd be another story.;)

Anywho, the title is disappointing.:cry:

Srsly, they do meet in the middle to get stuff done. Granted, it's terrible things that are done, like the Patriot Act, NDAA, the Iraq War, etc., but hey, it's bipartisan, right?

But I couldn't help but think they'd be in bad taste or would go over people's heads.

Exclusive: Romney UP one point in Ohio and TIED in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, according to his campaign's internal polling

Internal campaign polling completed on Sunday night by campaign pollster Neil Newhouse has Romney three points up in New Hampshire, two points up in Iowa and dead level in Wisconsin. Most startlingly, the figures show Romney and Obama deadlocked in Pennsylvania.

Internal Campaign Polling is usually very good, assuming they're done right. In 04, I believe it was Kerry's internal team who forgot to do polling in rural Ohio, which is where Bush won the election. "Night of the Living Dead" is what I think it was called.

And what team Obama thinks about Pennsylvania and Wisconsin is apparent when you look at where Obama is making appearances and sending Bill Clinton.

Minnesota too. Although I have no idea why or how that state would be a battleground.

I'm sort of halfway not surprised that they didn't go out and specifically mention what these key differences in polling data were besides 'Independents for Romney.' That would've been informative.

I didn't bother voting early as friends who did said the lines were long at the couple places around the city here. Figured lines will be shorter today with a ton of polling places going rather than just the handful of early voting locations.

Will head out in a bit, nice being able to walk to my polling place--though hoping the rain lets up.

Early Voting for me this time was a lot easier than when I did it in 2004. That took me about 4 hours. This time it was 1. Now that was a mess.

I am just hoping my brother in law stays away hunting one more day. Either way I don't want to be around him if Obama wins or losses. I know he will be too happy or too upset than is actually called for.

I'm going with:

Obama - 303
Romney - 235


I just played around with one of those electoral college maps. Went conservative and gave Romney Florida and Virginia (really I think he just gets one of those two, most like FL) and that brings it to:

Obama- 290
Romney- 248

If Obama gets VA, then he jumps up to your prediction, and I think that's probably most likely.

Nate Silver's analysis shows Romney has a < 10% chance of winning: http://fivethirtyeig...th-longer-odds/

Of course, you can cite one article from a British tabloid (what is it with conservatives and the Daily Mail? Is that a News Corp. property?) to show that Romney has a chance. But no reasonable person who looks at objective data and analysis is giving Romney much of a chance at all today.

I'm less sanguine about those prospects. Data show Obama has all the momentum he needs, all polls but Rasmussen (whose methodology oversamples Republicans and therefore has Romney ahead) point to Obama leading (a few, like Gallup's last poll, show ties).

But Romney might be able to win, and if he does, the name John Husted will, I guarantee you, be on the lips of every single American in coming months. Voting controversy in Ohio will be the only way Romney will win.

That last paragraph is the only thing that really has be chomping at the bit today. Like I said before, the only thing that can really win it for Mittens is voter suppression and tampering. I really hope this doesn't come down to another Supreme Court decision.
