Live Election Tracker

Tyler Durden's picture


As the first exit polls start trickling in, readers can keep track of the live action with the following handy maps, selected from various websites. As a reminder, exit polls are about as predictable as any other polling 'data point' based on +/-4% error margin sampling, which in turn is virtually every data point used to feed Garbage In, Garbage Out "predictors", "simulators" and other "black boxes" which forecast the future with triple digit "accuracy." Simply said, in an election in which the margin of difference in the key electoral states (not to mention the popular vote) is far narrower than the error rate, take everything you have heard about the final outcome and burn it, or sell it and buy several Stat 101 credits at the local community college.

Correction, 3 brain dead voted you down. Since two others voted you up that makesa total of 6 brain dead idiots which includes you. Can you guess which one of the 4 thumbs down voters was particularly alert and voted for Gary Johnson.   There are still too many anesthetized hypnotized socialized propagandized  brainwashed  and deluded citizens to make a difference.

Thanks to news and information web sites like ZeoroHedge more people have begun to wake up and shake others. There is a big change coming that may be as important and disruptive as the machine age was. The age of technology is changing the entire paradigm of the late 19th and 20th centuries.

I see you have it all figured out, except the part of excluding yourself as an idiot of course. You apparently assumed I voted for the Dem candidate since I made fun of the Rethug supporters. You get an idiot nomination for your black or white, either or thinking, even though you seem to think you're so beyond it. You voted predictable from your attitude.

You may be right about the technology driven changes coming. We will see. We may also see changes due to the end of cheap energy, climate change and ecosystem collapses. Not all of these are easily overcome with technological fixes, Yeah, I know peak oil, climate change and ecosystem collapse goes against the prevailing conservative and libertarian dogmas, but reality does not care about belief systems. We will see.

Noble sentiment but I know individuals who, if sitting on tires and warming their hands over a burning barrel after a Obama 2nd term, would blame Bush for their plight. It's really a mantra for some now. I've pointed out many alternative causes rehashed exhaustively here to no avail. Perhaps some just need to pee on the electric fence to figure it out. Though, for some, that wouldn't even work.

Think Big Nixon

Tape transcripts (1971)

Nixon: I still think we ought to take the North Vietnamese dikes out now. Will that drown people?
Kissinger: About two hundred thousand people.
Nixon: No, no, no, I'd rather use the nuclear bomb. Have you got that, Henry?
Kissinger: That, I think, would just be too much.
Nixon: The nuclear bomb, does that bother you?...I just want you to think big, Henry, for Christsakes.

[edit] Tape transcripts (1971)

  • We're going to [put] more of these little Negro bastards on the welfare rolls at $2,400 a family — let people like Pat Moynihan and [special consultant] Leonard Garment and others believe in all that crap. But I don't believe in it. Work, work — throw 'em off the rolls. That's the key.

I have the greatest affection for them [Negroes] but I know they're not going to make it for 500 years. They aren't. You know it, too. The Mexicans are a different cup of tea.

'Fraid not. You are the idiot. Go look up Mittens voting record as Gov of MA. Ban on Assault Rifles and more restrictions on Gun Purchases. No way Mittens would push for Wall Street prosecution. As for Currency Controls Mittens wants tarrifs, and that is going to cause currency controls. Also note the Mittens Flip-flopped on getting rid or Bernanke. Mittens wants to keep rates low now.

Mittens, if he won, would be another Mike Bloomberg. Socialist disguised as a GOP candidate.

I said to myself "it's going to be a long fucking 4 years".

On the bright side, it's not going to be a long fucking 4 more years. My plan to move back to SE Asia with my family is on track and looking better than ever. Fuck all of you stupid sheeple that voted for this asswipe; you're not going to live off of my middle-class back much longer.

because you have a monopoly system, a bottleneck that narrows power/everything into a small office which is then easily targeted and corrupted by The Parasite Club

the best systems (nature, internet, a free market etc) spread decision making across thousands or millions of individuals, not narrowed to a handful

it's easy to corrupt 10 people in 1 office, close to impossible to corrupt 10 million

Govt is the problem, the solution is a free people

I genuinely don't how know anyone is mentally or physically capable of withstanding the torture that any of the Lame Stream Media dish out, whether MSNBSC, FAUX, CNN (CronyCapitalismNetwork), cnBSc, aBSc, cBsc or nBSbc. 

The United States has by far the worst media out of any nation that's remotely deemed developed, and even many nations that developing.

It's not that the media elsewhere is so good, it's that the media in the U.S. is so horrendous on a scale of lowly relativeness.

The Hell? Shows what you know. Out here in Cali, we hang breathless on shit like that. Nobody here votes until late in the day and before we do we hit CNN and Reuters for the exits, get drunk enough to drive, and only then go vote. If done correctly you either 1) don't remember any part of the process so need never accept responsibility, or B) actually never arrive at the poll but instead go to the casino and blow your mortgage payment playing dice. Fuck yeah.

Yeah we're all about civic fucking responsibility out in Cali, bitchez.

At least we are spared the candidates running around the state mucking up traffic. One benefit of the race being called before our polls close.

What casino are you playing dice at? Only card games and slots at any Indian casino I've been to in CA

In fact I never frequent the casinos myself so I don't know what games they actually offer. When I wrote the above I was actually channeling the scene in "Mars Attacks!" where Danny DeVito is playing craps in Las Vegas while everyone else is watching the ballroom TV live announcing the Martian invasion of Earth. So happy, so clueless, so dead.

The day just has that kind of feel to it, know what I mean?
