21626  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Slovenia Border Referendum 2010 on: June 06, 2010, 01:23:28 pm
Slovenes vote in referendum on Croatia border deal

Slovenes are voting in a referendum on whether to accept a deal on a border dispute with Croatia.

The agreement, signed last year, allowed international arbitrators to resolve the issue.

The border dispute concerns the small Bay of Piran in the Adriatic Sea, and dates back to the break-up of Yugoslavia in 1991.

It has soured relations between the two countries, and led Slovenia to block Croatia's bid to join the EU.

Parliaments in both Slovenia and Croatia approved the deal, but the centre-right opposition in Slovenia has branded the agreement as a "capitulation" that favours Croatia.

Slovene Prime Minister Borut Pahor accepted the opposition's demand for a binding referendum in March.

The BBC's Balkans correspondent Mark Lowen reports that polls suggest the likely result of Sunday's vote appears too close to call - but if rejected, Slovenia's government will again face pressure to delay Zagreb's EU negotiations.

'Setting an example'

In the past, Croatia has called for the border to be drawn down the middle of the bay.

But Slovenia, which has a much shorter coastline than its neighbour, had feared this would deny its ships direct passage to the high seas.

Slovenia exercised its veto on Croatia's EU accession talks because it said Croatia had provided maps and documents in negotiations that failed to take account of Slovenia's position.

Croatia hopes to become the second former Yugoslav state to join the EU in 2012.

Our correspondent says that by appearing to agree on a solution to the row last autumn, both countries tried to set an example to other parts of the Western Balkans: that through compromise and a shared European future, bilateral issues can be resolved.

The hope was to influence ties between Serbia and Kosovo, whose declaration of independence from Serbia is rejected by Belgrade, or between Bosnia and Serbia, whose relations have remained tense since the Bosnian war.

Polling stations are open from 0700-1900 (0500-1700 GMT).

43% Approve
52% Disapprove

PPP surveyed 1,277 Iowa voters from May 25th to 27th. The margin of error for the survey was +/-2.7%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and weighting, may introduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify.

New Vienna state elections poll by Gallup for 24:

SP: 44% (-5%)
FP: 22% (+7%)
VP: 18% (-1%)
Greens: 13% (-2%)
Others (Various liberal parties such as LIF, JULIS, BZ, FBZ as well as KP and SLP): 3%

Direct vote for Mayor:

Michael Hupl (SP-Incumbent): 49%
Heinz-Christian Strache (FP): 19%
Christine Marek (VP): 16%
Maria Vassilakou (Greens): 14%
Others: 2%

http://www.oe24.at/oesterreich/politik/Wienwahl-Landtagswahl-SPOe-verliert-absolute-Mehrheit-0720169.ece

The SP would lose its absolute majority and would have to enter either a SP-Green coalition or a Grand Coalition of SP and VP.

I don't see the poll when I click on the link.

yeah the poll is gone for some reason, who won? i voted for Christie the other day.

Yeah, they removed it because they simply cannot avoid that their poll is being attacked and rigged by the Paul-people somehow.

The last time I checked, Ron Paul was at 50% or so, followed by Rand Paul with 25% and everyone else in single digits ... Tongue

These polls are too good to be true, if REid wins, we will have a supermajority senate and that I believe isn't going to be the case.

Is this a joke ?
21639  General Politics / Economics / Re: Predict the May Job Growth on: June 04, 2010, 12:36:43 pm
Economists estimate about 513,000 new jobs, according to several news sources.

I went with 400-500,000 because anything over that is extremely rare. Would be great if it was over 500 K though.

If there are fewer than 150,000 non-Census jobs though, the stock market might react negatively.

It was already said in the morning that about 420.000 Census jobs will be reported in this release, so the question is only how many private sector jobs have been created.

I base my estimate on the Gallup job creation survey, which had a strong surge in May and is continuing now.

I think the rate might go down to 9.7%

Hmm, probably shouldnt trust Gallup on this:
