Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Erection Day Discussion

if romney wins will nate silver incur the same results-oriented joe-morgan-at-end-of-moneyball backlash from the rest of the pundits?

I hope there's a politard discussion about how much better things would be in AC-land since private companies would own the elections

nate silver is already getting a ton of backlash from joe morgan-types who don't understand math and are butthurt that math doesn't fit their narratives

sure, but almost certainly this increases exponentially in the event of a romney win?

also who was he on 2+2?

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Erection Day Discussion

fuuuu clark, i'll do what i want.

seriously though, i voted last week. pretty pissed off because i learned last night that one of the two major reasons i voted (for casinos in AR) is on the ballot but is not eligible to be made into a law due to some shoddy legislative language in the law or some ****. at least everything was kosher for the medical marijuana law so my vote in favor of that actually could lead to the possibility of medical marijuana existing.

i guess there's a reasonable chance florida/ohio will be close enough that counts will continue well into the night

In blowout elections it can be a done deal by noon. IIRC, Reagan won 49 of 50 states and that election was basically called before polls opened. There is a lot of talk about the mandatory recount triggers being necessary in at least one of Ohio, Florida, or Virginia which could take longer.

There has been a lot of talk for the potential that this is undecided for the next week to ten days. More informed people seem to hold that opinion than those that think it will be clear tonight.

I remember back in 2000 staying up unusually late and figuring they had to figure it out before too much longer. So not always.

Nate tha' Great iirc

and yeah, probably. ****, that's as much reason to root for obama as anything, because if romney wins the anti-math meatheads will only continue to run our airwaves and political discourse and be even louder about their stupid ****.

a vote for obama is a vote for nate silver and the validity of math!

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Erection Day Discussion

I think Obama will win. 91% (which Silver is currently projecting) is probably a tad high though.

I'd be very surprised if he's right about all of Colorado, Virginia, and Florida going Obama. If he is, Obama is going to win with over 310 electoral votes, which I think would be pretty surprising to most people.

is there any reason to keep this centuries old electoral system when we can just count up the total votes and see who has more?

There just isn't any reason to read anything on the internet, watch TV or listen to the radio today. It's just poltiards, politards and more politards. Tomorrow we take back what is rightfully ours ... and we talk about tonight's MAC FOOTBALL ACTION around the water cooler.
