At this time, to judge by the scant results filtering in, Obama is leading handily. However, that is to be expected since all the Republicans are still at work...

At work counting votes is the better punchline. Don't forget to cast your vote. That Fienstein race is a squeaker.

Probably because of Newt Gingrich's prediction that Romney will take over 300 EV's for sure.

In the realm of old white politicians, Romney is one of the whipper-snappers.

Did anyone win this thing yet?

Not sure if it's true, but was told that Romney owned the business that makes the voting machines. I thought that was pretty funny...Smiley: lol Some people might have Christmas earlier.

mmmmHHHMMMmmmm..... Smiley: dubious

It's bad calibration and one reason I dislike the electronic only thing but no, I don't believe it was HAXX!! unless they were dumb enough to hack is in a way blindingly obvious to the voter.

I was wondering why Romney's name appeared first on the ballot there. Was going to post the question, then decided to not be a lazy *** and googled it myself. In case anyone's curious:

And, the ulterior reason that I was curious about it:

In Ohio they rotate the list from precinct to precinct. Obama comes before Romney but, if you rotate it one tick upward, the list starts with Romney, lists all the third party yahoos and ends with Obama.

That's just an artifact of the way they try to keep it fair though.

Yeah it's "randomized" in most places.

Honestly though if you simply check the name that's at the top of the ballot without reading it, I'm not sure you should actually be voting without some assistance.

If they really wanted to make it fair, then the candidates names would be arranged on a bottom-left - to - top-right diagonal, thereby balancing our tendencies to read left-to-right and top-to-bottom.


____________❒ Mitt Romney

❒ Barack Obama



Smiley: schooled

PS: Of course, studies would need to be done to determine the exact angle. I think 45° still favors the top guy. 30° seems more balanced, to me. But length of name is also a variable that needs to be accounted for. There's an algorithm for all this, somehow. And yes, I'm aware that I'm taking this a bit too seriously.

I voted for Zombieland because it was on top... Smiley: um

Anyway we randomize, the Green Party chick was on top here.

Usually if it gets to the point where I'd be using something arbitrary there other far better criteria. My favorites include: not voting for someone who has a similar name to someone you hate, voting for the woman, or going for the shorter name. Also kudos to people who have names I can pronounce, and sometimes alternating top and bottom is cool too. Really depends on the mood.

After being rotated around for about 15 seconds, you are able to choose a cup. Whatever you choose, is your vote. Test your sight!

Not really relevant for president though. I'm sure the research most applies to that handful of positions you vote for every time that you have no clue who the **** anyone is anyway. So if you're running for a judicial spot or school board slot, it might make a difference.

I would list a bunch of positions that you have to agree or disagree with along side a given weight. After you finish, your responses will be paired to those positions of the candidates. There's your vote.

I'm not really willing to say one way or the other if I think it would be relevant. I honestly have no clue how many people walk into a polling booth undecided.
