I have called this election a landslide for Romney, with low turnout. Apparently not everyone is as unhappy about Romney being the candidate as am I. I may have been wrong.
I'm still calling a win for Romney, don't get me wrong but I've been hearing these reports - and then today happened. I kept hearing people all over the USA say it was crowded when they went to vote early. Today I went to swing by the nearest early voting location after work (yes, I have a voter's guide, no I haven't posted it yet, yes I am waiting for Christmas). There were cars literally around the block at the polling place. The line to vote was back-and-forth across a 30 foot room several times and out the door. This was the same as I saw on Election Day, 2010. Mission downgraded to: get a sample ballot to make sure I knew all the votes I was going to cast. Cruise into the parking lot. 20 seconds later, cruise out of parking lot. Parking lot full.
For EARLY voting.
I now think this may election may have quite a high turnout rate.
