FF. One of the best SoS's in the country. I hope he challenges for senate against Orman for Senate in 2020 or Davis for governor in 2018. After defeating an incumbent, hopefully he'll get propelled to the national scene and run for president in 2024.

#Kobach2024 Common sense

Superique, Paleobrazilian, would you vote for Marina in the 2nd round? Proudly or reluctantly?

You should base yourself on aggregate percentage distance from the statewide numbers. "Voting for the State winner" is a pretty useless definition if the county was won by 30 points while the State was won by 3.

But a county won by a R or D by 30 points won't have voted for the winner every election since 2000.

Bold prediction: he'll get about 7% of the vote.

Roberts, because I don't like hugging men who aren't related to me (and I don't even hug them), but at least I could pretend he is like my grandpa or something.

It's lean GOP now, give it up donkeys.

I didn't see you giving up in the 2010 Gubernatorial election.

So Martinez is safer than Otter now?

I'm skeptical.

But Catalunya would surely vote YES.

Well yes but their chances of getting their own referendum are probably even smaller now.

I'm not sure Catalunya would vote Yes, but I'm sure this makes the referendum a bit more difficult to happen on November.

Muh Democratic Party

Glad to see Michaud is complacent. Cutler has even lower numbers than before and yet it looks like LePage is turning this around. This will be close either way, and I suspect Michaud wins this anyway, but this is now a Toss-up (Tilt D), not the Lean D I originally thought it would be.

I'll have to disagree. Cutler will probably get more than 11% and that is only bad news for Michaud. Considering muh PPP is generally left leaning, I'm optimistic

Yet still among the most accurate?

Perhaps because 2012 was just a good year for the left in general? Not saying they're unrelated, but the correlation, from what I have seen, doesn't occur in non-left favored cycles

No, you are wrong.

When I read "Opinion of Reinfeldt" I thought "I hope there's a Neutral/Meh option, because it'd be a very hard choice classifying him as FF or HP". So, neutral.

KCDem should be banned if, and only if, you are, too.

Senator Pat Roberts has a cool new ad (??) on his Youtube channel. It's very bizarre.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qf7B7NHRTcM&feature=youtube_gdata

That ad is just awful. Watching some images of an oldman shaking hands with people you don't know and listening to a horrible soud track at the same time... annoying.

Is it true that in Sweden there are piles of ballots in the polling station for each party and you can draw a ballot for the party you are voting for ?

So, basically everyone knows for which party you are voting, depending which ballot you take (unless you take ballots for every party with you into the voting booth) ?

You asked this question four years ago as well Tender, I'm disappointed you do not remember.

The answer is yes and yes. People who want to keep their vote secret bring their own ballot papers or take one from every party.

Isn't this a terrible waste of paper you might ask. Yes it is, but Sweden has a very big forestry and paper industry so see it as one big subsidy every four years. Wink

I cannot remember everything ... Tongue

But thx for the answer. Yes, terrible waste of papers indeed.

It works the same way in Spain. You know which party will win in your college before the vote count starts.

Curtis is the best Senate candidate ever, so obviously her.

I maintain the 2010 election was good for the Democratic Party. Republicans *mostly* picked up seats on the backs of worthless Blue Dogs.

Worthless? These Blue Dogs voted much more frequently with the party then republicans who replaced them. You deserve not only to be in minority, but to be in PERMANENT minority for such idiotic statements..

This is interesting coming from someone who'd vote for Kashkari over Jerry Brown.

I'd rather have Republicans where we know how they'll vote, than Blue Dogs who go either way.

25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: 2008 Presidential Election: Game Thread on: September 12, 2014, 02:43:32 pm
Hello everyone!

Today we are in Belmond, Iowa to witness a thrilling debate between two candidates considered underdogs to win their parties' nomination. They are Republican Gov. Mark Sanford from South Carolina and democrat Gov. Howard Dean from Verrmont!
We want to congratulate them for their initiative and we wish them luck in their campaigns. Maybe this is the first time we have four Presidential debates. Let's see if they can win their respective primaries.



Now let's go to the bulk of the debate.


To Gov. Sanford:

Governor, why should republicans vote for you over President Giuliani?
Has Giuliani been a good President?
Why would you be a better President than him?


To Gov. Dean:

Governor, do you approve of the job of anyone in the Giuliani Administration?
Would you keep any of them in your Administration?


To Sanford:

Say something good about Gov. Dean.
Would he make a better President than Giuliani?
Would you vote for him?


To Dean:

Say something good about Gov. Sanford.
Would he make a better President than Giuliani?
Would you vote for him?


To Sanford:

Would you close the EPA?


To Dean:

Do you support gay marriage?


To Dean and Sanford:

Is Education one of the main subjects of your campaign?
What are your plans for Education?
What has to be fixed on this issue?
0 being extreme left and 10 being extreme right, where would you place yourself on economic issues?
