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.


You understand this would be gamed in about 9 seconds by every candidate, right?

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'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.


The linked thingy said something about it only having an affect on 4 of the 118 races or something? For like county judges and the like. I dunno, insert Florida was only won by "###" votes statement here I guess. Smiley: rolleyes

I think if someone could actually say what Romney's positions were, this whole election would have gone a lot smoother.

This. The only position he holds that I'm absolutely clear on is that he really really wants to be President.

I'm hearing that, with 0% of the vote in, Jill Stein is likely to lose New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, West Virginia and New Hampshire.

This is going to leave her with a lot fewer paths to 270.

I may agree with the President somewhat, but he's still wrong because something something 47%, Obamacare, Libya.

Really though, fighting an incumbent in this case I didn't really expect a candidate with a lot of strong opinions, but just one that would try to be a reasonable alternative for those who didn't like the sitting president. Referendum on Obama, etc.

Luckily the GOP nominated a white guy, so almost everyone who doesn't like the sitting president had their primary issue solved immediately.

Got out of work and drove to the polling location. In the parking lot there was a very heavy set younger woman wearing one of those sandwich board things that said "Pro Life Voters Guide". And another (almost equally heavy set) one holding up a pink sign with the same words...

In all the previous elections I had never seen anyone campaigning outside a polling location. Numerous people were commenting to the officials inside about it, and their answer was they had checked it out and they were 100 feet from the front door (law). Of course they were pretty much right on the side of the building in the main parking lot of the Town Hall.

At least they did not approach people, not even talking to people. They seemed to be sitting back and just letting people approach them (No one seemed to be approaching them).

Early exit polls show an easy Obama win. Unfortunately, early exit polls are made out of witchcraft and anuses so I wouldn't pop the champagne just yet.

That NC number is barely plausible. The rest seem fairly inline with expectations. But, again, exit polls yadda. My random DEM friends in OH tell me Cuyahoga will likely break turnout records, but they're mostly lying ********. So you know, caveat.

It's a good rule of thumb not trust people who set their river on fire anyway.

It's an easy way to get the pollution out of the water.

Naw, NC +1 to Romney is about what Nate Silver called yesterday.

It should obviously be North Carolina +99 Obama. Unless you don't believe in a little thing I call "Obamagic".

Yeah, he's likely wrong. It should be more inline with +3 Romney.

My dad has the same name as me (well, a different middle name, but same starting letter). The person crossing off names crossed off my name when my dad went to vote earlier in the day. Luckily my dad caught it, and the man had to leave a note that I hadn't voted yet.

I wonder what I would have to have done if my dad didn't catch it and I showed up and it said I already voted.
