So Sturgeon is a shoo-in, right?

Salmond is resigning.

YouGov has probably now sealed its place as the UK's premier pollster. Its exit poll-type thing pretty darn accurate and the now-famous 51-49 Yes lead poll of theirs may have guaranteed vast and much-needed constitutional changes all by itself.

Oh, I think many congressional Dems are 'pissed'...but not in the way that the article suggests. Tongue

Remarkable levels of activity today. I haven't seen anything even close to the level of political activity that's happening today. Almost every conversation I hear in the street today is about independence.

So today's Yes shares are 47, 48 and 49 - exactly the same average as yesterday's. Quite amazing, really.

Sorry if I asked this already.  But what time will the polls close? And will there be exit polling allowed?

10PM over here, 3AM (I think) over there. No exit polling.

It's 5PM Eastern Time, so you won't even have to have a late night in the US.

Oops, brain fart. Tongue

I'd have voted No on this one.

ICM: No 45, Yes 41
Survation: No 48, Yes 44
Opinium: No 47, Yes 43

So it's over.

Not so; anything from a ~20 point no win to a ~10 point yes win is within the realms of possibility imo. This is probably the most unpredictable vote in UK (ha ha) history.

As pointed out elsewhere, the question of the campaign has been "Could Scotland be an independent country?". The question on the ballot paper is "Should Scotland be an independent country?".
13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: VP debate: Warren vs. Rice on: September 16, 2014, 12:45:56 pm
Warren came off as pretty folksy in her debates with Brown IIRC. Rice usually has a fairly cold demeanor.

The jfmstct had some good ones during the 2012 election cycle.

Oh, and Hmtldon's "If all RINOs were forced to become Democrats" - it showed a map with every state except Mississippi voting Democratic.

17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Kasich vs. O'Malley on: September 16, 2014, 07:07:23 am
Some third-party candidate who doesn't bore the nation to tears (which would be pretty much anyone other than Kasich or O'Malley) wins in a landslide.
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Past Election What-ifs (US) / Re: 2012 - Romney/Christie vs. Obama/Biden. on: September 16, 2014, 07:04:28 am
Romney does ~1% better in the popular vote but does not pick up any further states.
19  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: PM Series: Question 20 on: September 16, 2014, 07:00:59 am
Disagree, probably not critical in the UK but certainly critical in the U.S.

The one who would pledge to fix this thread.
21  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Scottish Independence Referendum - 18 September 2014 on: September 16, 2014, 06:52:35 am
We definitely need at least a couple more polls given that the weekend's were quite inconclusive. Strange that the polling companies (or, rather, their clients) are still more interested in GE2015 despite this being arguably more significant.

Edit: Ah, there are five due out tomorrow so PB informs me.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: When will Hillary announce her 2016 plans? on: September 16, 2014, 06:47:00 am
Announcements tend to be earlier in open cycles, so probably Jan-Feb.
23  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: 1972 Presidential Election on: September 16, 2014, 06:42:33 am
FDR barely scraped home in 1936 and McGovern is heading for a landslide in 1972. Oh Atlas.
24  Forum Community / Forum Community / Most iconic sig in Atlas history? on: September 15, 2014, 06:48:36 pm
John Dibble's "Smoking is healthier than Fascism", Inks' old one with his favorite politicians (who were a very diverse bunch IIRC), Grumps' Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino are a few that spring to mind. Any others?

Which board has a higher amount of BRTD idiocy - off-topic or forum community?
