Obama 297, McCain 241

I used to live in GA and I hope Saxby loses. He made a big mistake in the minds of Georgians on his compromise plan with 5 Democrats for drilling off the east coast. He also was a big supporter of the bloated farm bill. It's a good thing Johnny Isakson isn't running for re-election this year, since he was in the same group as Saxby.

NBC is showing crazy lines at polling booths in Ohio, North Carolina and New York City! At 6am! This should be a record turnout.

And to the poster who reported this topic, and the other mods/admin out there, I've clearly said in my first post I *will* move this thread back into the Off-Topic forum by the end of the day. If it's still inappropriate to leave this thread on the B-School Application forum for one day, especially on a day like today, please let me know and I shall move it immediately.

You were supposed to use a #2 pencil. Your vote is invalid.

And Dixville Notch and Hart's Location (in riverripper's home state of New Hampshire) already reported their final vote tallies. They started voting midnight, and reached 100% voter participation.

Voted democratic for the first time in 40 years.

Yeah, I live in Georgia, and Chambliss is very unpopular around here. That race is going to come down to the wire I think and it should be very interesting to see how it pans out. Both Chambliss and Martin have been running ads non-stop in prime-time for the past couple of weeks, and one candidate's ad always follows the other's.

It seems very possible that the Dems are going to get a supermajority this time around.


atlmba what do you think the odds of a run-off in GA are? it sounds as if there's a decent chance. It'd be crazy if it ended up being for the 60th seat.


Well it indeed looks like this one is going to a run-off, although I don't think it will be for the 60th seat (although it's still possible). I happen to be a supporter of Jim Martin so I hope he wins, but I really don't think he has a shot of winning a run-off, as Democrats aren't likely to have as high a turnout as in the general election.

The Minnesota Senate race still hasn't been called! Mandatory recount appears to be on the cards. But the Democrats ain't making it to 60 in the Senate.

And it appears raabenb's prediction came closest to the final EV tally! +1 to him.
