April may have been too early, but the time is now right.


I still think we should wait until after the conventions, maybe even October.

15 of the 24 threads on the front page of the "Presidential Election Trends" board are about the 2016 election.  So effectively we have a 2016 board already.  It's Presidential Election Trends.  The question is whether we want a separate board for "Presidential Election Trends".

Right, I understand, but what I'm saying is hold off on creating a whole new board until after the Conventions.  We're still not in the "homestretch" of 2012, yet, so let's don't jump the gun just yet.  2016 can stay in the Trends board for now, let's bring it out around October 1.

Not until the day before the 2016 election please. A 2016 board in 2012 would be the worst thing ever.

The 2012 board was created in October 2008, ftr:

http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=85921.0

Also, the 2016 threads on the "Presidential Election Trends" board are already more active than the "Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections" board, even though there are some actual Gubernatorial elections coming up in a few months, whereas the 2016 Iowa caucuses are still 41 months away.

For God's sake, no. Useless Presidential speculations full of ridiculous hypotheticals while we have absolutely no idea of the candidates, the situation and the trends is the last thing I want to see.

Ideally, next Presidential election boards should be created 2 years ahead of said election and not before.

I disagree.

After seeing the Tragedy that is the 2012 Election Board I've become convinced that further Election Boards are unnecessary.

Rest in Peace, 2016.

For those who are voting not to create it until much later on, I have a newsflash for you.  This is a political forum where we discuss, wait for it...POLITICS!!

I dont want it until October, but I wouldnt be a bit disappointed if it were created now.

We have our first candidate now:

http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=158237.0

Creation of this board is long overdue.  It's a far more interesting election than 2012 (which has gotten incredibly dull now).  In fact, the only reason to pay attention to the national conventions these next two weeks is because of all the likely 2016 candidates in attendance.

If news is starting to percolate for 2016, then I am all for it's creation.  Just don't neglect 2012, because there are still 10 weeks left in the 2012 cycle.

Now that it is September, I am fully endorsing the creation of a 2016 board.  I'm confident that the 2012 board will not die until after the inauguration.

Dave made the 2012 board on Oct. 20, 2008.  If he follows the same schedule this time around, he should create the 2016 board in about two weeks.  (Though I certainly wouldn't mind if he did it right now.)

Thanks Dave. Only one thing would make it better: appointing Torie as its mod.
