2012 Election Open Thread

This is your space to share your thoughts and reactions.

My prediction?  Boring Barack Blowout.  It really isn’t even as close as all that.

Poll Closings

  • 6 pm– Parts of Indiana and Kentucky (no results yet)
  • 7 pm– Parts of New Hampshire and Florida (no results yet), Vermont, Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, all of Indiana and Kentucky (results)
  • 7:30 pm– Ohio, West Virginia, North Carolina (results)
  • 8 pm– Parts of Michigan, North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, Texas (no results yet), Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, D.C., Illinois, Missouri, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Oklahoma, all of New Hampshire and Florida (results)
  • 8:30 pm– Arkansas (results)
  • 9 pm– New York, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Louisianna, all of North Dakota, South Dakota, Michigan, Kansas, Texas (results)
  • 10 pm– Parts of Oregon, Idaho (no results yet), Iowa, Montana, Utah, Nevada (results)
  • 11 pm– Washington, California, all of Oregon, Idaho (results)

Alaska and Hawaii close much later, but the election will be well over by then.

It’s not really about the race at the top of the ticket though, it’s how badly Romney and the Tea Party Partisans have damaged the Republican brand for the under ticket.  I’m predicting +2 D in the Senate and +23 D in the House (just short of a Pelosi Speakership).

TheMomCat and I will be trying to follow the under ticket as best we can, the final results will probably not be known until the end of the week on those races.

If you’re just sick of it and want to talk about that?

It’s an Open Thread, no subject off topic.  If I wasn’t running this myself I’d be sorely tempted to watch The Looney Toons premier, the Chopped marathon or American Pickers (anyone know what I can get for my McCain/Palin ‘Wet Start’ bumper sticker?).

    and Rove is arguing with the “Fox decision desk” for more time to deliver ratings for their advertisers.

    Rove basically saying “You may be right. But there’s too many votes not posted yet. We can’t call it yet”

    Will be interesting to see who gets thrown under the bus by republicans. But I’ll wait to see it tomorrow.  They shouldn’t freak out too much. There’s still a Republican at the top.

    We already know who Obama is going to throw under the bus with his Grand Sellout.

    Ohio is becoming less relevant.

    Tammy is the first openly gay Senator, male or female. Congratulations, Sen. Elect Baldwin
