From a Federalist point of view Jbrase and shua are very appealing candidates.

I've got 15 respondents so far. A couple more participants would be appreciated.

I was unaware there were people above elementary school age who don't touch type.

I'm one of those, too. I simply never needed any touch typing skills for the texts I wrote.

Throughout this entire debate I have developed a real desire to learn "Inksian". I think it would be appropriate if we could at least get a text sample of this new tongue.

Your candidacy has made the race for Governor more interesting but I understand your decision. I wish you the best of luck in your campaign for Assembly.

Thank you, Lumine. I'm glad you appreciate our campaign. Wink

Great idea to run a poll now that the field seems stable, do you have any early predictions on what the results could be?

We need some more Federalists taking the poll (and I'm seriously questioning the results as of now); what I'll say already is this: budget issues, game reform, and personal affinity seem to be the big three factors

I'm struggling with the same problem - way too few Federalists in my polls to get a meaningful result. But I still consider this polling format superior to the usual Atlasian polls. You can ask many specific questions that the poll respondents can answer in a short amount of time.
1558  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: MA: Tmthforu94-Gass3268 High Speed Rail Act of 2013 (Debating) on: April 22, 2013, 03:52:38 pm
Hey, y'all,

Since there's already a Nyman-Baltimore-Philly-NYC-Boston high-speed rail line, I was wondering if, as part of this legislation, you would consider construction of a high-speed rail from Nyman across the Potomac to Richmond and the border, where it could connect to our Charlotte-Greensboro-Raleigh/Durham line that we're planning to extend down to Greenville and Atlanta? It would integrate our transportation system much better and make travelling easier.

That actually makes sense since traffic doesn't stop at regional borders.

Wow, that's really awesome! Thank you very much. Smiley

The ZuWo/Cathcon ticket congratulates the winners of the Senate election.

In the next days we are going to reveal our campaign banner. Our campaign theme remains "Experience and Leadership".

I can say that speed cameras are widely used in my home country as well as many other European countries and they don't pose any major problems. Sure, they are annoying if you get caught speeding, but you've got no one else to blame than yourself if that happens. Importantly, numerous studies have shown that speed cameras have a positive impact on road safety:

Additionally, let's not forget that speed cameras also generate revenue.

Teaching is exhausting, I can say this from experience. However, how you feel after six hours of teaching depends on your approach to the job (also, of course, on the classes you teach). If working in general and teaching in particular is something unpleasant to you and you only regard it as a means to earn money, then yes, your reaction is probably quite normal.

The first numbers (13 respondents) show some interesting trends. First of all, the race for Governor remains close between Clinton1996 and ZuWo, with Gass in third place. Secondly, no clear pattern emerges when it comes to the questions of what the ideal balance of power for the Mideast is and whether the Mideast Assembly should be controlled by the right, the left or by no political group at all. Interestingly, 7 of the 13 respondents say their political views are "far left" or "center left", 5 say that they are "far right" or "center right", and only one person considers himself/herself a "centrist". This suggests that these preliminary figures might skew to the left so more responses are wanted!

It would be pretty hard to have an invalid vote due to inactivity or posting requirements, since they practically barely exist these days.

Actually, McGovern's vote seems to be invalid because of too few posts.

What activity rules do Dkolroga break?

He didn't break activity rules, he wasn't registered in time. You have to be registered seven days before the election in order to vote. I've introduced a constitutional amendment to eliminate that waiting period.

No votes were invalid due to activity.

As far as I see, TDAS04's vote should also be invalid. He registered for the game on April 12 but the earliest possible commencement of the election was at midnight on Thursday the 18th.

"Regular elections to the Senate shall begin between midnight Eastern Standard Time on the Thursday preceding the penultimate Friday of the month and 0001 Eastern Standard Time on the penultimate Friday itself"

A lot obviously depends on how homely is going to deal with those ballots that contain comments such as "all these choices suck/are great" etc. He clearly stated that he would take a very liberal interpretation of the rule that one mustn't campaign in the voting booth so let's wait and see what the official result will show. Wink

If that change the results, I fully expect a lawsuit by the loser.

And that could be a good thing if it helped us clarify what "campaigning in the voting booth" really means.

Congratulations! I think both you and Zanas put up a great and mostly issue-based campaign so this was a very interesting election to follow.
1569  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Atlasian Sentinel: Sjoyce projected winner in IDS! on: April 22, 2013, 02:18:23 am
Well, those who lost today can take comfort in the fact that there is a high chance of another special election quite soon. I'm pretty sure there will be at least one Senator who lacks the motivation or time to do his job or simply disappears from the forum after a couple of weeks. That's what usually happens, after all.

75 mph would be an acceptable compromise.

One more poll on Mideast demographics and the race for Governor.

http://de.surveymonkey.com/s/6JD8H2R

Only participate in this poll if you're a registered voter in the Mideast, please. As usual, results will be released in the next days.

Life sentence without parole. That might actually be the more severe punishment than the death penalty, though I'm fortunately not in a position to compare the two.
1573  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: A-Bob Research Center: Mideast Gubernatorial Election 2 (Focus on running mates) on: April 21, 2013, 04:52:41 am
Results and Analysis

Total number of respondents: 17 (100%)

Question 1: Do you have a favorable, unfavorable or neutral opinion of Lt. Governor candidate Cathcon?

Favorable: 14 (82.35%)
Unfavorable: 1 (5.88%)
Neutral/No opinion: 2 (11.76%)

Question 2: Do you have a favorable, unfavorable or neutral opinion of Lt. Governor candidate Siren?

Favorable: 11 (64.71%)
Unfavorable: 5 (29.41%)
Neutral/No opinion: 1 (5.88%)

Question 3: Are you more likely to vote for ZuWo after his selection of Cathcon as his running mate?

Yes, more likely: 9 (52.94%)
No, less likely: 2 (11.76%)
It doesn't make a difference: 6 (35.29%)

Question 4: Are you more likely to vote for Clinton1996 after his selection of Siren as his running mate?

Yes, more likely: 7 (41.18%)
No, less likely: 5 (29.41%)
It doesn't make a difference: 5 (29.41%)

While both Cathcon and Siren are good for their gubernatorial candidates, these figures suggest that Cathcon has a slightly more positive impact on his ticket than Siren. It's far from certain that this tendency will actually translate into more votes for the Federalist ticket and the question remains whether these results can be explained by the fact that Cathcon is more well-known in the region than his counterpart. Nevertheless, it seems that the running mate question favors the ZuWo/Cathcon ticket at the moment.

The last couple of votes have been very favorable for Cathcon but less so for Siren. According to the most recent responses, Cathcon appears to be a net plus for his ticket while the share of voters who say that Siren's presence on the gubernatorial ticket makes them more likely to vote for Clinton1996 isn't much larger than the share of people who claim the opposite, i.e. that Siren makes them less likely to vote for Clinton1996.
However, we must keep in mind that polls such as these can be skewed in a particular direction, and the usual statistical caveats have to be taken into consideration as well.

Full figures will be released tomorrow.
