I really like them:

Iceland
Belarus
Russia
Australia
Estonia
Sweden
Georgia
Belgium

I like them well enough, but not crazy for them:

Cyprus
Netherlands
Moldova
Serbia
Spain
Austria
Macedonia
Poland
Latvia
Azerbaijan
Norway
Slovenia

No idea what I think:

United Kingdom
Ireland
Germany
Denmark
Israel
Albania
Czech Republic

I don't like them:

France
Hungary
Romania
Armenia
Switzerland
Italy
Malta
Greece

Just bad:

San Marino
Lithuania
Portugal

----------------

Montenegro hasn't revealed their song for whatever reason.

Sweden and Italy are the hot faves to win, and I get why. Italy does nothing for me, although good on them for singing in Italian I guess. Sweden is just bizarre but in a really good way. Australia and Estonia are considered the next most likely, which is making me a bit happy because I have a sneaky suspicion that our song will do very well with the juries. Slovenia, Norway, Finland, and Azerbaijan are the possible-but-improbables, and I think at least Finland can be actively discounted. Yes, they'll get some public support because good for them giving it a go, but not enough to win, and nothing from the juries.

Portugal is the longest odds, and it is pretty bloody terrible so fair enough,

Ehhh? Jury wise, Australia will be screwed by a lack of alliances with other European countries.

Write-in: Direct action.

Care to elaborate on what exactly this means?  

Basically it was Tony Abbott's 'alternative' to The Carbon Tax/ETS. The idea behind it seems to be to provide financial incentives to polluters to reduce emissions. But in reality it's a clusterf**k created by a man who felt the need to have any alternative at all to tackling climate change that wasn't Labor's policy.

Could Obama have obtained 25% in in any major Mississippi towns? (Jackson, Biloxi, etc.?)
If said major towns had a significant white population there'd be a pretty good chance of that happening, you'd think.

Depends on the electorate I was living in. In general I imagine I would have been a straight NDP for most of their existance.

This.

His anti-Catholicism in general is pretty funny. Also, his fascination with church being for hipsters.

Also there needs to be a poll.

New Zealand because people are being too obsessed over the racial demographics of a country.

836  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How did frequent readers of the following websites vote in 2012? on: March 14, 2015, 07:29:31 pm
Upworthy - Obama
Reddit - Obama though with a strong base for Johnson
Tumblr - Obama though most people who read this didn't vote for obvious reasons.
Facebook - Obama
Twitter - Obama
Hulu - Obama
Netflix - Obama
Buzzfeed - Obama
Vox - not sure
FiveThirtyEight - Obama
marxists.org - Stein Tongue
Gawker - not sure
Jezebel - probably Obama
TV Tropes - Obama
Huffington Post - Obama
IMDB - Obama
The Onion - Obama
Clickhole - Obama
The AV Club - Obama
4chan - hard to call. I think 4chan's lost a lot of influence lately, so perhaps Johnson
LiveJasmin - again hard to call. Not 100% familiar with the side, but a sex chat side IMO would have a strong base of creepy MRA's or edgy teenagers, so perhaps Johnson?
Stormfront - Goode
Dave Leip's US Election Atlas - Obama

Really depends on who runs. I think Biden would be the early favourite, but he'll fade, particularly as more well-known Dems jump in.

County Maps of I-594 and I-591

I-594 (Pro background checks)
]
Yes - 59.27%
No - 40.73%

I-591 (Anti background checks)

Yes - 44.73%
No - 55.27%

Asotin County continues to be an electoral enigma.
Why the hell does the same question asked differently have quite different percentages? Are voters really that dumb.

You do know that your sig has Abbott? I think you already know the answer to your question.
Are voters really that dumb.

Don't ask such a stupid question. Tongue

lol, touche.

Cricket, and to a lesser extent soccer. Don't have a strong opinion of hockey, don't really enjoy the other three for various reasons (though I'm certain that would change if I was American rather than Australian - I do really enjoy the more Australian forms of football).

I like Australian football a lot and I watch a good deal of it. Rugby league bores me.
Yeah I see what you mean, despite being from NSW I consider myself a bigger fan of Aussie rules than rugby league.

Penny Sharpe seems like a terrible candidate for Newtown, what with the whole WestConnex fiasco, even if Labor has come up with an alternate 'solution' that avoids King street.  The Greens vote share will probably go up this year from 2011, so what makes you so sure that Balmain would also fall?

As for Summer Hill second place (it's where I live), it's tough to say.  I'd like to say the Greens as I've seen no campaign presence by the Liberals here, but that's almost always the case.  There are plenty of people who will come out and vote for the Liberals without anyone needing to tell them to.
Greens typically lose support as the election rolls on. More importantly, there'll be a drop of the Liberal vote.

Don't have any problems with this happening at a university.

School is a bit different though obviously.
