Oh man .... thanks for the laugh. MSNBC never fails to deliver with the chuckles.

FOX news just reported that New Jersey has been given until FRIDAY to vote ... that's right ... FRIDAY. New Jersey will be accepting EMAIL votes up until then. So what does that mean for the electoral map?? No one can claim New Jersey until at least Friday??

I heard that. But Shep said that they have until friday to vote on the other ballot initiatives. The presidential voting ends midnight.

Federal law.

Try this one on for size: Take the Exit Poll!


I took a look at that and added my vote to it to. I took a picture of the map




Seems legit

No kidding! I so wanted to go back and get a screenshot but didn't want to tweak their numbers by running through multiple times. I'm glad you caught it though!

Now there is a monument to the accuracy and honesty of polling. Oh yes.... it's all 100% true. They say so...so it must be. 49 states for Romney and Obama can retire to Hawaii in peace.

Anyone really believe the MSM polls are measurably more accurate than that one? That one just gets totally ridiculous about it by the audience they're catering to of course. It makes the point well though, doesn't it?

happy voting today america. sitting here in sydney australia watching the cable news channels and listening with amazement at the way you guys over there conduct elections.

just a couple of questions if someone there can help me out.

Why do they hold the vote on a tuesday when people are working etc.....our elections are always on a saturday. most people are not at work and that leaves all local schools available for voting booths. i have been hearing about people lining up for over 4 hours waiting to vote. over here most schools hold a fete with sausage sizzles and cake stalls etc to raise money for the local school that you are voting at. i have never waited more than 2 minutes to lodge my vote. are your polling booths at the local schools or halls etc ????

why the different ways to vote e.g: ballots, machines, punch cards etc. we have a form that everyone fills out in pencil. every person over the age of 18 fills in the same form. these are put into a locked box with scrutineers from both parties there to ensure no funny business with the box's.

i understand that its not compulsory to vote over there. what sort of turn out do you get ???what sort of percentages of all those allowed to vote actually do ??? for something this important where the direction of the country is at stake...do you think everyone should vote ??

please understand this post is not saying whos system is better than the other's...just some questions i have wondered about. good luck to whomever you vote for and enjoy the freedom that we in both countries have to choose who leads us.

As far as I know, it's the first Tuesday in November and it's a weekday because weekends have religiou connotations.

As for the variety of way to vote, different states can determine voting applications.

If I'm wrong, I'm sure someone will be by to straighten me out.

About the day, an interesting quote from cnn.com (i know, it's cnn lol)




It all comes down to weather, harvests and worship. Back when voters traveled to the polls by horse, Tuesday was an ideal day because it allows people to worship on Sunday, ride to their county seat on Monday and vote on Tuesday - all before market day, Wednesday. And the month of November fit nicely between harvest time and brutal winter weather -- which can be especially bad when you're trudging along by horse and buggy. Plenty of ballot initiatives But since many voters now travel by horsepower instead of live horses, some people -- like the group Why Tuesday? -- are pushing to move election day to a weekend day to increase the country's historically dismal voter turnout. According to the group, 15 states do not allow early voting, and 27% of non-voters said the main reason why they didn't vote was because they were too busy or couldn't get time off to vote.

CNN right now, showing just preliminary votes. They appear to be 2:1 for Romney. I'm sure that'll change, but interesting start.

Bias much?

Is this what we are going to see tonight?

More as it comes in.



I am really confused. Is there a source for this or is this something you are seeing on TV? I went to the MSNBC website and no exit polling data has been published.. There is an article stating:

Decision day – what to watch for tonight.

O 4286 to R 8434 so the gap is narrowing but still 2-1 like future president Beezer said
