H/t commentor TaMara. Yup, too long to watch over coffee, but now you’ve got something to keep you entertained while you’re waiting in line to vote. For the impatient, Michelle Obama is announced at approximately the 2:10 mark, and President Obama comes on at 11:10 (and starts speaking at approximately 12:30).
Meanwhile, all your early-morning lamestream media pundits will be gumming over OMG DIXVILLE NOTCH, tied 5-5, not bad for a precinct that skews Republican. But let’s hear a little love for the other tiny NH bellwether, Harts Location:
Barack Obama/Joe Biden (D) 23
Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan (R) 9
Gary Johnson/James Gray (L) 1
Virgil Goode/James Clymer (C) 0
I make two electoral predictions.
ELECTORAL PREDICTION (mode): Barack Obama 332 EV, Mitt Romney 206 EV. The mode is the single most frequent value on the histogram. It corresponds to the map below, and has a chance of being exactly correct.
ELECTORAL PREDICTION (median): Obama 309 EV, Romney 229 EV, Popular Vote Meta-Margin Obama +2.34%. This is the automatically-generated snapshot for November 5th 8:00pm. This prediction is almost guaranteed to be off, since 309 EV is not a common combination.
And here is the prediction of our own PsiFighter37:
Obama gets 332 EVs. I think the popular vote will come in between 3-4%, with rounding causing it to be 4%.
Mitt gets 47% of the vote and will forever have that tattooed onto the magic underpants.
Democrats will pick up Senate seats relative to the 53 they have now. Joe Lieberman will wonderfully be but an irrelevant assclown in less than 2 months when Chris Murphy takes his seat.
But we don’t take the House, but I predict Eric Cantor makes his move and sticks a shiv deep into Orange Julius’ back to become Speaker. God help us all.
So… what are your predictions for close of day tonight?
