I wonder if Stewart will run again in 2016, and is biding his time for another presidential year turnout scenario?

This whole situation is quite disturbing.

Given the violence that occurred the other night, law enforcement has a responsibility to be there and ready to preserve the peace.  However, their actions against peaceful protests are making circumstances less peaceful.

Its sad when you turn on Al Jazeera and they have heavily armed officials in military regalia firing tear gas and intimidating a peaceful crowd... and you realize this isn't Egypt or Iran, its Missouri.

I don't really know Tenn. politics, but I'm surprised to see Shelby go for Alexander and Davidson go for Carr, since I thought the white areas in/near Memphis, were far more conservative than the white areas in/near Nashville.

In Shelby County, Lamar is our BFF Smiley

Actually there are a couple of reasons --

1) Shelby County's suburbanites tend to be more traditional social conservatives while those in middle TN are more closely aligned the new rage of the tea party.  Mike Huckabee and Right to Life endorsed Lamar.

2) Memphis has a relatively significant Republican population for a major urban city, and these folks are pro-business and a bit more moderate.  I haven't seen precinct results yet, but I'd be surprised if Lamar wasn't racking up high margins in East Memphis.

All that being said, Carr got more votes than I thought he would in Shelby, and his percentage was deflated by Flinn.

In the general election Lamar should do well again in big Shelby.  In 2008 he got nearly a quarter of the African-American vote, and another quarter refused to vote for his opponent over him.

While I'm sure that there is some tiny fraction of these cross-overs who would vote for the least-electable candidate to help their own side, I think those are outnumbered by those that like a particular candidate of the other party, or who want the "lesser of two evils".

Where are the UKIP votes coming from?  The Conservatives don't appear to be losing more than 2-3%, Labour gaining a few points (probably from LD), Lib Dems tanking - but those votes aren't going to UKIP.  BNP appears to be down and clearly those votes are going to UKIP, but where else are they coming from?

Why are no American users posting here ?

We always post in their elections, so why not return the favour ?

Tongue

The results in France make us feel Europe is such a backwater that we enlightened and progressive Americans refuse to be associated with it Smiley

I don't think having a reasonable signature requirement is a problem, but Michigan's requirements go further than that.  Conyers's problem isn't the validity of the signatures, its who collected them.  Why should it matter who collects the signatures as long as they are valid?

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has a map of the GA-Republican Senate results here.  The regional variations are stark.  Perdue is running first or second virtually everywhere - so he should almost certainly make the runoff.

Thank you for the link.  Are there any other results map links out there?  I thought Politico used to have them but now they only have the results-in map.

I still haven't made up my mind on who to vote for with a few days to go. That's probably the latest decision since I first started voting.

Vote Tory!
