Dave Leip's Atlas definitely deserves its own page, considering it's basically the bible of us election data. The forum itself isn't anything noteworthy, though.

Update thread is though.

I've been voting since 2012 and so far I've voted Labour, Green, TUSC and independent. So option three it is.
9  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: The first election in which each media was used for campaigning on: October 21, 2014, 07:31:01 pm
This thread from October-November 1984 even has its own user Walter Mitty! And if you're in the mood for some internet creeping, most of the usenet users of that era used their real names/university affiliations, so you can look up where they are today!

It'd be interesting to read a discussion on homosexuality from that time.
10  General Politics / Individual Politics / An observation about moderates on: October 21, 2014, 12:39:15 pm
Has anyone else noticed that moderate politicians are often more tribal, hackish and partisan than those on the more radical or extreme ends of their respective parties?

Andrew Cuomo - said something along the lines of "conservatives are not welcome in NY" a while ago
Michael Heseltine - Made the (in)famous "Left, left, left" speech at a 1970s Tory conference in which he essentially accused Labour of being communist
Paul Keating - http://webcity.com.au/keating/
Denis Healey - "Being attacked by the right honorable gentleman is akin to being attacked by a dead sheep". Also many other instances
Newt Gingrich - Well, he's certainly moderate by today's standards and he has a long history of vicious attacks on the Democratic Party
Richard Nixon - As above, really

I will acknowledge that the Tea Partiers in Congress have challenged this recently, but my point remains. I don't necessarily have a problem with such behaviour, however.

15  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Romney: I'm not running! on: October 20, 2014, 08:42:54 pm
"Losing twice" doesn't matter if he'd simply lost the nomination.  He'd still be able to argue that he might be a good general election candidate if he'd only be given the chance.  The more relevant issue is losing once in the general election.  That's the killer.


Isn't he the best candidate vs. Hillary according to match-up polls?

Why do 9 people consider Lincoln a horrible person?

Libertarians.

Slavery is the free market, apparently.
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Rank primary candidates from most electable to least on: October 18, 2014, 01:35:46 pm
2012 Republicans:

Huntsman
Johnson
Romney
Perry
Paul
Gingrich
Santorum
Cain
Bachmann

Huntsman's electability is overrated, but he'd have done at least 1% better than Romney nationally imo. Johnson would have been decent if he had dropped the marijuana obsession (not that I don't agree with him on the subject). Perry was the best of the candidates from the right of the party. Paul is difficult to assess but I guess that the mainstream media would have taken care of him (endlessly playing clips of him with Alex Jones etc). Gingrich has too much baggage and the other three are just too out-there.

2008 Democrats:

Richardson
Obama
Clinton
Edwards
Biden
Dodd
Kucinich
Gravel

(Much as I like the last two, they'd have struggled to reach 40% in a general. Dodd is a walking stereotype for a longstanding corrupt Washington bureaucrat, Biden is too gaffe-prone, Edwards would be a good GE candidate if he wasn't, you know, a complete dick. Obama and Clinton are obviously very electable. Why Richardson at the top? Because he ticks the most boxes. Moderate (while not alienating liberals), Latino, good governing record, experienced, outside the Washington bubble.


More later, perhaps.

Obama, as the other two had significant achievements and stood for things.

Being at my grandparents' house and getting out of bed to go into the living room and steal some crayons out of a drawer. I was stopped in my tracks, alas.

If the polls are still displaying roughly the same picture on May 7th 2015 as they are now then will anyone really bother doing an exit poll?
