1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who would you rather be President? on: Today at 07:36:25 am
Nigel Farage.

Between Cuomo and Warren though, Cuomo, although it would be an incredibly reluctant choice.
2  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Scottish Independence Referendum - 18 September 2014 on: Today at 04:16:35 am
I wouldn't necessarily say that. Right now it's able to present itself to the electorate as the defender of Scottish interests in a hostile environment (Westminster). If Scotland became independent there'd be no need for that position anymore and a number of nationalist voters would probably move (back) to the other parties.

The same thing would probably happen in an independent Bavaria which I doubt would see the Christian Democrats run away with every election.

Would Scotland retain the British parties as they exist up there though? UKIP, for starters, would be irrelevant in their current form up in Scotland.

Also a critical issue for me.

Young? Yes.
Rich? No, middle-class is more accurate for me.
White? Yes.
Liberal? To an extent regarding the old sense of the word, particularly on the economy, but I'd call myself a conservative.

Bumping, with a reminder that voting closes tomorrow at 9.30am AWST, or in just over 24 and a half hours.

Clinton. Would have been tempted to cast for Perot in hindsight.

Wow, this is close.

I might make a hypothetical '92 map from the results here, once the poll closes.

Please do!

Not sure if the results are closed yet, but here's the 1992 map, based on this poll:

NOTE: The shadings/results are based on raw vote uniform swings, and in practice, would be somewhat different (for example, Bush would stay above 40% in AL, and Perot might win WA.)

I don't really care what Democrats do about Susan Collins.
16  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What kind of election do you prefer? on: September 11, 2014, 08:25:48 am
Option 1, most definitely.

WAY more interesting from an analytical point of view, especially on the night itself!

Key word here is all people. I certainly support government assisted basic needs for the severely disabled, severely injured veterans and the very poor. However, this is a very collectivist idea that massively expands the welfare state. Disagree (Critical)
19  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: AK's Australian Election Series - 1979 (Includes Referendum) on: September 10, 2014, 08:58:53 pm
Does Referendum One count out the obvious caveats (i.e. vulnerable to a "Citizens United but in Australia"). If not, then No. (and then No, and Yes)

Referendum One is very much based on the American First Amendment, if that helps.

Shocked You should have made Cairns leader, a truly great Aussie.

I considered making Cairns leader when I did the write-up, maybe I should have, who knows.

On another note, look how badly both the Liberals and Labor are polling!
21  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Do you like the Treehouse of Horror episodes? on: September 10, 2014, 01:28:00 am
Yes, mainly the older ones though, mind you, I prefer classic Simpsons (1989-1997) over the years succeeding them in general, although I don't mind newer Simpsons.

Some of my favourite segments? King Homer, The Raven and Homer3, to name three.
22  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Opinion of Jim Varney on: September 10, 2014, 01:25:02 am
FF, and R.I.P.

Used to love the Ernest movies when I was younger, I'm also a fan of Varney's voice work in the first two Toy Story films.

With this particular history going as it is, will Don Chipp still breakaway from the Liberals to form the Democrats?

We'll have to wait and see, in this timeline, Chipp was one of the Liberal MPs from Victoria who re-gained his seat in 1970, after losing it in 1967. It will depend on who is in government during that period, and the success of the Australia Party (who already have a Senator in this TL)

Looks like the Democrats as we know them won't exist, although Chipp has joined the Australia Party.
