Brad Ellsworth vs Garrison Porter (156-39)
President of the United States of America
Trailing by twenty six; that is the place Garrison Porter is in more than halfway through an election campaign running against Brad Ellsworth. Brad Ellsworth is a Democrat former Indiana congressman and failed United State Senate Democrat nominee in 2010. Who did he loose to? Dan Coats. Dan Coats is the sitting United State Senator from the Hoosier state. With one week to go and millions of dollars in television advertising spent in California and Kentucky and into North Carolina and Virginia media markets; into Ohio and Illinois and Indiana Garrison Porter still trails by ten with a week to go. How to campaign with a week to go behind by ten? Having won 156 times before surely there is an answer and there is. Throwing everything and the kitchen sink at the opponent. Campaigning until the last hour of the last day; sticking to the same message on the campaign trail and doing whatever has proven the most effective kind of campaigning right up through the time that the polls close.
Often times Garrison Porter is at his best campaigning when there is a deficit in the polls and time is running out. Going for him is the running mates nominated by the Republicans and Democrats. Garrison Porter has proven to win more times than not when Woodrow Wilson is anywhere on the Democrat ticket. Dan Coats is a thorn in the side of Brad Ellsworth; coming from the same state. Clever move putting Coats on the ticket. So clever it can either go really well or really poorly. Now in an election battle that by voting day brings the Ellsworth margin down to two the Republican writes both a victory and a concession speech. Only when the votes are counted will it become known which he will need.

Robert Lafollette Opens Up Lead So Large Foss May Soon Find Himself Out Of The Race8 o'clock on the East Coast. Yes we have some projections for both candidates. The ones for Democrat Eugene Foss are mostly from the South. Vice President Robert Lafollette seems to be winning everywhere else. There are calls to make. Eugene Foss is the winner in Alabama and Mississippi and Tennessee and Florida.

Eugene Foss
Alabama 12 electoral votes

Eugene Foss
Mississippi 10 electoral votes

Eugene Foss
Tennessee 12 electoral votes

Eugene Foss
Florida 6 electoral votes

Vice President Lafollette is the winner in Illinois and Massachusetts and Pennsylvania and New Jersey. He also carries Maine and New Hampshire and Connecticut.

Robert Lafollette
Illinois 29 electoral votes

Robert Lafollette
Massachusetts 18 electoral votes

Robert Lafollette
Pennsylvania 38 electoral votes

Robert Lafollette
New Jersey 14 electoral votes

Robert Lafollette
Maine 6 electoral votes

Robert Lafollette
New Hampshire 4 electoral votes

Robert Lafollette
Connecticut 7 electoral votes

Kansas will also cast its electoral votes for Vice President Lafollette. We can make another projection. This one just keeping Eugene Foss every so barely in the race right now. Nebraska barely passes the threshold of the margin statewide a state is to be called at the top of the hour. Eugene Foss carries Nebraska.

Robert Lafollette
Kansas 10 electoral votes

Eugene Foss
Nebraska 8 electoral votes

Panel?

Nebraska is key. It must go to a Democrat for a Democrat to have even a sliver of hope at winning the presidency tonight. The state voted big for Norman Thomas the Democrat four years ago and the incumbent President still won the election.

That incumbent narrowly won the election. A lot of recent elections have been hotly competitive and have ended in a close election result. Is this election breaking from that tradition?

Its not breaking from the tradition in that Eugene Foss has done his best to make it competitive. Some indications say that yes it is breaking from tradition because the electoral college result does not look like it will be near as close.

In Indiana a projected result we showed; the minor party candidates are taking a couple of percentage points of the vote nationwide so it seems at this hour.

I would not expect any difference in the vote results statewide anywhere to come from it. But yes they are taking a couple of percentage points of the vote.

We can project Eugene Foss to be the winner in Oklahoma.


Eugene Foss
Oklahoma 10 electoral votes
Foss: 93        Lafollette: 169        266 to win

Delaware will go for Vice President Lafollette. It appears that Eugene Foss is attempting to hold onto some hope of winning the presidency. He carries Maryland and its 8 electoral college votes.

Robert Lafollette
Delaware 3 electoral votes

Eugene Foss
Maryland 8 electoral votes
Democrat Eugene Foss Carries Maryland & Nebraska At Top Of 8 o'clock hour; He Tries To Hold Off Republican WaveThat behavior of Eugene Foss attempting to hold off the Republican wave will be stopped if Missouri can be called for Robert Lafollette. We are checking the results there to see if the margin is big enough to call it right now. The state is undecided at this hour. No call in Missouri. More election 1928 coverage after this.



Eugene Foss vs Robert Lafollette
Missouri 18 electoral votes

Kentucky 13 electoral votes

Vermont 4 electoral votes

Robert Lafollette
Indiana 15 electoral votes

Eugene Foss the former Vice President and Democrat nominee tonight carries South Carolina and Georgia.

Eugene Foss
South Carolina 9 electoral votes

Eugene Foss

Robert Lafollette
Ohio 24 electoral votes

This is becoming another very balanced election thus far. The Democrat winning the South and the Republican winning the upper East Coast. We are calling Pennsylvania for Frank Lowden with 60% of the vote in the state. He that being the President of the United States is also the winner in Massachusetts and Connecticut and New Hampshire and Maine. Norman Thomas goes on and carries Alabama and Mississippi.

Frank Lowden
Pennsylvania 38 electoral votes

Frank Lowden
Massachusetts 18 electoral votes

Frank Lowden

Frank Lowden

Frank Lowden
Maine 6 electoral votes

Norman Thomas
Alabama 12 electoral votes

Norman Thomas
Mississippi 10 electoral votes
Thomas: 78        Lowden: 77        266 to win

Some notable projections right now. President Lowden is the winner in Illinois and Kansas. Norman Thomas carries Missouri and Maryland.

Frank Lowden
Illinois 29 electoral votes

Frank Lowden
Kansas 10 electoral votes

Norman Thomas
Missouri 18 electoral votes

Norman Thomas
Maryland 8 electoral votes

Norman Thomas does carry Tennessee and Florida. He is also the winner in Oklahoma.

Norman Thomas

Frank Lowden
New Jersey 14 electoral votes

Norman Thomas
Nebraska 8 electoral votes
Thomas: 140        Lowden: 130        266 to win

I am told we have three other projections. Arkansas and North Carolina both cast their electoral votes for Norman Thomas. Frank Lowden the President of the United States is the winner in Ohio tonight.

Norman Thomas
Arkansas 9 electoral votes

Norman Thomas
North Carolina 12 electoral votes

Frank Lowden
Ohio 24 electoral votes

Norman Thomas vs Frank Lowden
President of the United States of America
Thomas: 161        Lowden: 154        266 to win
Panel?

Yeah one would think Norman Thomas is really William Jennings Bryan the way indications are that Thomas is going to do really well in the West tonight.

Its interesting tonight though. Norman Thomas is using the West to offset what is apparently a strong Lowden showing East of the Mississippi River.

So far there are glimpses of it looking that way. I would not say that any trend is really clear at this moment.

Stand By For ProjectionPresident Lowden carrying Illinois and Ohio is good for the Republican President. Norman Thomas is showing some strength early by carrying Kentucky and West Virginia and then later on winning Nebraska so clearly.

It is 9 o'clock on the East Coast. We have some projections to tell you about right now.


Frank Lowden
Michigan 15 electoral votes

Frank Lowden
Colorado 6 electoral votes

Norman Thomas
New Mexico 3 electoral votes

Norman Thomas
Arizona 3 electoral votes

Norman Thomas
Texas 20 electoral votes

Norman Thomas
Louisiana 10 electoral votes

Frank Lowden
Rhode Island 5 electoral votes

Norman Thomas
Wisconsin 13 electoral votes

Norman Thomas
North Dakota 5 electoral votes

A whole batch of projections coming in right now. Frank Lowden is the winner in Michigan and Colorado and Rhode Island. Just three states for the President in this batch of projections. Norman Thomas the Democrat opponent of the President carries Arizona and New Mexico. Norman Thomas is also the winner in Texas and Louisiana. He carries Wisconsin the home state of the Republican Vice President. Wisconsin will when the votes are in and counted there go to Norman Thomas. North Dakota also goes for Thomas. Most of those calls are expected with the exceptions being Wisconsin and North Dakota at the top of this 9 o'clock hour.
Thomas: 215        Lowden: 180        266 to win

Panel the map is beginning to fill in now.

It is and the Thomas momentum in the West may not be at this hour quite what Democrats were hoping for. Colorado goes for the Republicans at the top of the 9 o'clock hour. That is good news for them especially when Norman Thomas was expected to have a big night in the West.

It stands at 215 for Thomas and 180 for Lowden. Where do the candidates go from here?

New York has 45 electoral votes. That is the big prize that is outstanding right now. When that state goes one candidate will see his numbers in the electoral college grow pretty substantially.

If Norman Thomas carries New York at this point the election is virtually over for Frank Lowden.

That may well be the case. Thomas would only be one or two Western states away from being President of the United States at that point but I do not expect New York to go to Norman Thomas tonight.

Election 1924 coverage continues after this.

I was not real optimistic about the chances for Republicans to do well nationally during election day. For me it was not until between 10:00 and 11:30 last night that it really began to look like Republicans were winning the election on a national basis. Seeing McConnell do so well in Kentucky as a Republican is really good. It was really amazing to me. All that Alison Grimes did she could not even win 41% of the vote statewide and only won ten counties statewide in Kentucky.
The McConnell victory speech I think is something Republicans will remember for a long time. He looked happy and pretty optimistic about Republicans controlling the Senate. I thought McConnell was going to win. I was prepared for him and other Republicans to loose. It did not seem to me to be out of the realm of possibility. I fully expected Pat Quinn to win. Bruce Rauner for me as Republican winning was one of the best things of the night. Seeing Chris Matthews cringe I'm pretty certain between 10:00 and 11:30 after Scott Walker was declared the winner was a welcome site for Republicans. I think the Grimes loss and the extent of it is due in most part to a lack of unity in the Kentucky Democratic party. The election results as a whole I think are a full fledge rejection of Barack Obama and a rejection of the Clintons.

The next election covered is another match-up between John Edwards and Garrison Porter. No not the best of six; this time just one election. John Edwards takes John Kerry as his running mate. John Kerry the Massachusetts senator for 29 (January 1985 to January 2013) years and 2004 nominee for President and current Secretary of State. Garrison Porter takes Richard Nixon as his running mate. Richard Nixon a California politician who between his failed 1960 campaign moves to New York and ultimately wins the presidency in 1968 and again in 1972 before becoming the first and to date only President to resign the office. The Edwards/Kerry versus Porter/Nixon campaign took off and Garrison Porter opened up a lead in the early going of as much as 8 points nationally. A good margin for any candidate seeking national election. Come the middle of the campaign the lead was quickly and pretty swiftly erased. With 6 weeks to go John Edwards lead Garrison Porter by 16.
By the time that there is a week until election day Garrison Porter shuts the gap and begins to pull away from John Edwards this time for real leading him by 6 points coming into election day. The last 48 hours see John Edwards and Garrison Porter traveling back and forth and up and down across the country. Polls in New Mexico showed an Edwards lead of 52 to 43 with 5 percent undecided. A lower number than Edwards may like. So Garrison Porter left California after campaigning there and stopped in Albuquerque to fire up the Republican base in New Mexico. He then headed off to Pennsylvania and sent some resources into New York state. Massachusetts only shows a lead for John Edwards of 51 to 47 with 2 percent undecided. John Edwards finished the campaign in Oregon and California and Idaho. Come election day John Edwards and John Kerry await returns in Charlotte North Carolina; the Porter/Nixon camp awaits back in East Tennessee what they think will be good results. Of course the American electorate like any electorate can do anything.
