Much better than his display name would lead you to believe, that's for true.

Politico circa 2012

Politico during the Romney campaign was really something else. I miss him quite a bit.

^^ITT, prudes applauding the vandalism of art apparently

You're using that word rather liberally in this case, to say the least.

Nope, I'm using it correctly.

I seriously doubt King would switch. He's too liberal; it wouldn't make any sense for him to be in the Republican caucus. Plus he'd piss people off and be seen as a flip-flopper. And the Republicans aren't going to let him jump seniority and become the head of some high profile committee.

Mechaman is correct. Buchanan and Pierce were (more or less) only passively terrible; Johnson was actively terrible.

I vote for Greens and other independents from time to time (even a few libertarians when I voted in Texas), but I would of course never vote for a Republican under any circumstances.

I watched some of that debate.  Rick Scott embarrassed himself.  How did this clueless boob become governor of Florida? 

He did look completely out of his depth didn't he?

Landrieu wins the primary. I think she wins the run-off as well unless Republicans win exactly 50 seats on election day and they need Louisiana to get a majority. If Republicans win 51 or more (or 49 or less) then she can do it.

Crist and Scott on the execution postponement

If gubernatorial debates were as widely watched as presidential debates, there's absolutely no way Rick Scott would still be in this race. What a brutal exchange.

18  General Discussion / History / Re: Which American has won the most votes in history? on: October 21, 2014, 09:55:41 pm
Yeah, FDR just edges out Reagan it looks like. I underestimated just how many votes you could get winning four landslides in the 30s and 40s.

And if you do count VP votes, then it looks like George H.W. Bush actually comes in second, beating Obama.

1964 (Senate): 1,134,337 (+62,985 in primary and +49,751 in runoff)
1966 (House): 53,756
1968 (House): 110,455
1970 (Senate): 1,035,794 (+96,806 in the primary)
1980 (Vice President): 43,903,230 (+3,070,033 in the primaries)
1984 (Vice President): 54,455,472
1988 (President): 48,886,097 (+8,253,512 in the primaries)
1992 (President): 39,104,550 (+9,199,463 in the primaries)

Total: 191,962,546 (but only 93 million if you don't count VP votes)

Yes to entering or is this a quasi-internal?

What are the specific rules regarding this anyway? PPP "internals" tend to get entered, as did that Magellan poll which was conducted for the NHGOP a while ago. Is it that they have to be public pollsters as well in order to get entered?

As long as it's not an internal for a candidate or his/her party then I feel like we usually enter it. Probably should only enter polls that are released "fully" as well (i.e. with crosstabs and an explanation of methodology).

Looking at every single election they ever ran in. I'm pretty sure it's Nixon right?

1946 (Congressional): 65,586
1948 (Congressional): 141,509
1950 (Senate): 2,183,454
(1952 (Vice President): 34,075,529) Not sure if VP votes should count?
(1956 (Vice President): 35,579,180)
1960 (President): 34,108,157 (+4,975,938 in the primaries)
1962 (Governor): 2,740,351
1968 (President): 31,783,783 (+1,679,443 in the primaries)
1972 (President): 47,168,710 (+5,378,704 in the primaries)

Total: 130,225,635 (or 199,880,344 if we count VP votes)

I suppose I should also add votes won in the Republican primaries for House, Senate and Governor. Probably wouldn't change things by more than a few hundred thousand though.

Second place would be Barack Obama I think:

2004 (Senate): 3,597,456 (+655,923 in the primary)
2008 (President): 69,498,516 (+17,584,692 in the primaries)
2012 (President): 65,915,796 (+6,158,064 in the primaries)

Total: 163,410,447 (+ a few hundred thousand from Illinois state senate elections)

So Obama is first if you don't count VP votes for Nixon, second if you do.

The only other candidate I can think of that might be in contention is Reagan.

1966 (Governor): 3,742,913 (+1,417,623 in the primary)
1968 (President): 1,696,632 in the primaries
1970 (Governor): 3,439,174 (No primary?)
1976 (President): 4,760,222 in the primaries
1980 (President): 43,903,230 (+7,709,793 in the primaries)
1984 (President): 54,455,472 (+6,484,987 in the primaries)

Total: 111,996,643

Doesn't really come close. I wonder who won the most votes without ever becoming president? Mondale must be the answer if you count VP votes. But otherwise, I'm not sure.

All but TN and WV. MO and AR will be swing states, LA and KY winnable in a route.

Florida (along with Georgia) is one of the few states where early voting numbers are unambiguously good for Democrats IMO. Thank the good Lord for Southern blacks, basically.
