Wow... I just realized how much living in the Bay Area has distorted my view of housing prices.

Hmm... Oakland comes in at 127 for a population of about 400,000.. equals 0.32 per 10,000 people. AKA roughly 6 times the national rate.

Oh well!



Oops.. calculated that wrong. Apparently it's 26.3 per 100,000   Sad

It'll probably pass next time.  Hopefully they'll bring it up again in a less inane form, but considering their ultimate goal is probably a GMO ban, I doubt it.

In other news, Kshama Sawant is pretty obviously going to win, and SeaTac Prop. 1 had a good night last night, so it's back in the "likely win" column -- although it's only about a 50-vote margin, so a bad night tonight could throw it off.

Wow... I-522 wound up pulling ahead in Island, Snohomish, Kitsap and Clallam counties. In the end will probably only fail by about a 51-49 margin.

So would you give it about a 60% chance of passing in a larger turnout election?

Holy crap! Will Seattle be the only major US city with a socialist on the council? Also pretty amazing considering it's a city-wide election...

Wow... 522 is even down in Thurston. Given the margins against in Eastern WA and the weak pro-vote in King is this completely done for?
8  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Washington '13: Mike McGinn is a GMO on: November 05, 2013, 11:04:38 pm
And thus the long, slow wait for results begins...

So.... This thread was on the second page = not OK.

Anyways how's the whole divided legislative branch thing going?

probably not the right place for this, but...

WE HAVE THE SONICS BACK!!!

How the heck does the inheritance tax always seem to get watered-down? You would think that taxing the money inherited by people who are often already rich wouldn't be as controversial.

Overall this bill had to pass but I am a bit annoyed at how it turned out.. I think we could have gotten a much better deal.

She's not really known outside of Washington though is she? I don't see how she benefits any ticket (except for adding confidence/experience).

Interesting that Whitman voted for both Gay Marriage and Pot Legalization...

And then went for Romney.

Obama % v. Approve R-74 % (red areas were more Obama, blue more in favor of gay marriage):



This map can be used to explain so very much about King county' political landscape/oddities. Beautiful. Thank you!

Here's a photo album of Jaime Herrera Beutler and two pugs: http://photo.kochfoto.com/Portraits/CBLPI/Jaime-Herrera-Beutler-2011/17562319_3T5tWK#!i=1337290823&k=RgwmnJr

Ugh... she needs more than just token opposition. I still can't  believe that she's actually a representative.

I am glad to see that Sanders lost! I forgot about that race..
17  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Washington '12: Countdown to a Recount on: November 08, 2012, 01:22:49 am

I could see (with time) a serious third party dynamic begin in Washington:

Urban cores (Seattle, downtown Tacoma): Dems vs Greens/socialists
Middlings (70-80% of districts): Dems versus Republicans
Super conservative/rural areas: Republicans vs tea party offshoots/constitution party

..or maybe I am simply dreaming.

The charter schools amendment will fail, King county/Seattle will bring it down in the end.

Oh wait..  what is this place??!!


Also Walla Walla Sweets are much better than whatever dribble of an onion you have down there.

The RAND American Life Panel (9/26):
Obama: 50.46%
Romney: 42.46%

https://mmicdata.rand.org/alp/?page=election

The graph here is pretty eloquent, if you follow the link...



Look at the last graph. It's the breakdown of voters by income. Romney has lost big with low-income voters over the last three or so weeks.

So when you predict the Senate will be 26-23, does that mean it would likely become 25-24 when the Rs win the special for Kilmer's seat next year?

Yes, sadly. With Tim Sheldon holding the balance of power.

That is a rather terrifying prospect.

I don't see how Berkley pulls this off, she just doesn't seem like that strong of a candidate..
