And I am so excited waiting for the results. Larry, You say 2 to 4 points? I so want MORE. Virginians in Rural areas when jazzed for the vote can overwhelm NoVa, the coast and Richmond. I'll be getting down on my knees shortly thanking God for a Romney Landslide.
    I live in one of the larger towns in The Valley. Our demographics pretty much mirror the national average, but in 2008 you would have thought I lived in Petersburg by what we saw when we entered the polling place. This year the electorate more properly reflects the populace, which is a Romney win. I hope it's a big enough win to bring George Allen along for the ride because we NEED the senate to kill Obamacare.

    That.. was... Awesome!

    Got to vote in a Presidential election for the first time. I'm still pretty stoked about it.

    The scores of early voters who showed up at the polls shortly after sunrise Saturday, determined to beat the crowds, were counting on other people sleeping in.They didn’t.
    When 37 polling sites in Miami-Dade and Broward counties opened at 7 a.m. on the last day of early voting, two had five-hour waits. The wait was four hours or longer at three other sites.
    And the waits only got longer.
    Voters in line by the time closed at 7 p.m. were allowed to vote. At 6:42 p.m., the Miami-Dade elections department estimated that a half a dozen sites had six-hour lines. On Friday, the Miami-Dade voters had stayed open until 11 p.m.
    At the Miramar Library on Saturday night, 56-year-old Dan Whiting said he thought the line would shrink as the day grew older.

    He was wrong. He arrived at around 6:30 p.m. and his expected wait time was four to five hours. The line had about 550 people.

    Of course not. This early in the morning is when the working people vote - on the way to work. The lazy do nothings are still in bed or hungover.

    Ohio voters are facing extremely long lines at polling locations on Sunday. Early voting in the state has been reduced from the five weekends before the election to only the weekend right before Election Day.
    A federal appeals court ruled against Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted and in favor of the Obama campaign in October, allowing hours to be extended in the final three days before the election. Husted took the case to the Supreme Court, which declined to hear it.
    Early voters in 2008 were much more likely to be African-American in the Ohio counties that include the major population centers of Columbus and Cleveland, according to a study by Northeast Ohio Voter Advocates. Blacks accounted for 56 percent of all in-person early votes in Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland, while they accounted for 26 percent of votes overall, the study found. In Franklin County, which includes Columbus, African Americans cast 31 percent of early votes and 21 percent of votes overall.

    Word from another local precinct. So many people they can't even get into the parking lot. HAPPY PEOPLE standing about in 24 degree weather. Coming out like they were going to Chick Fil-A restaurant. I think this is gonna be a Chick Fil-A election.
    Beck is on channel 212 on Dish. FREE for 2 days. It's gonna be a kick Ass Coverage of the Election.
