Heads Up



SO's Political rules, as set out here

Preemptive ATS Strategies For A Smooth Election Day(s)

and here

A Call To Action: Ending The Political Game on ATS

Are still very much in effect.

Political trolling, name calling and bickering will not be tolerated.

It is possible to have an election and be civil with each other.

Play nice please

With 58 of 58 precincts reported in the US Territory of Guam, Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama won about two-third of the total vote.

Barack Obama received a total of 20,120 votes, defeating Republican John McCain who received 11,940 votes. Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr was also on the ballot in Guam, he got only 212 votes.

The results from Guam, however, will not affect the presidential race since it has no electoral votes.

CNN just reported 72% of all NEW voters voted for Obama in their exit polls, that could translate into a massive landslide if some the GOP stays home because they think they lost, they are old and don't want to stand in line after all.

You can add 62% voters who said the economy was the main factor too. Other exit polls:

12% will be excited if McCain wins
30% will be worried if McCain wins

FOX carried out that exit poll

Talk about a real case of one's vote not counting. I suppose it is for a show of support to the candidates.

In the first two States, Indiana and Kentucky, Obama is going well.

Obama is leading in Indiana after 3% of the votes counted and after 9% in Kentucky, he is behind by only 3%.

FOX: Obama wins Vermont

WorldWatcher feel free to move this post if needed, not sure where it would go best.

www.nbcchicago.com...

I had googled security for Grant Park tonight and this was one of the search returns I found interesting.

To be honest if Obama does not win it could become mayhem. If he does win it could be the single most wild party ever in recored history for Chicago and the new President elect.

Electoral maps are showing Obama with a likely 82 at this point and McCain with a likely 34 electoral votes. That's a pretty large margin but it's early in the evening.

Oh God...I feared this. Jesse Jackson is now at the Obama rally here in
Chicago and taking interviews from the local media. I do hope that what
he's saying doesn't get out to the rest of the country before all the polls
close.

Jesse Jackson has no shame..but a lot of guts. Four months ago, he
went on Fox News and forgot that the microphone/camera was running.
The "Reverend" Jackson said that he wanted to "cut his nuts off", referring
to Obama. Now, he's at the quickly growing Obama rally, looking to buddy
up to our President elect. Jesse is an embarassment to a growing number
of us in the African American community.
