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.

Vote Blue Cancer / Vote Red Cancer -- would you like testicular cancer or prostate cancer? want your balls to fall off or your asshole to fall out? Fixing it clearly isn't an option when voting.

If only they could both lose...

Bernanke is the fucking President, what's everybody getting all hot and bothered about?

I say replace the voting booths with rock-em sock-em robots. You square-off against another voter. The vote goes to the red or blue team.

Let the randomness of the universe decide. At least you had a little fun for your trouble.

Regardless as to which Deeply Captured Candidate (by the very same groups/people as they like to hedge their bets) wins, I toast The Bernank, who will still be chugging along with electronic printer equivalent always in tow, with the following musical tribute:

I should have wrote in Satin, instead I voted for one of his hand picked boys.

Strangely, all of my brain dead Republican friends and family voted today too. Looks like the dead will win one way or another. The zombie apocalypse is right here, right now.

GeorgeHayduke's picture

Well, looks like 2 brain dead zombies (so far) have voted me down to prove my point. Gotta love entrenched righties for their predictability. They're zombies and don't even know it.

lincolnsteffens's picture

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.

Three cheers for ZeroHedge"

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.

The outcome of the election comes down to a permanent move far away from the cities into the countryside or permanent residency in Latin America. I anxiously await our fate!

I'm hoping for a 5-point plus win for Obama, so there can be absolutely no doubt whatsoever in anyone's mind what the outcome is of his policies. The #1 enemy of prosperity in the  western world is not socialism, it's ignorance.

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

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.

I know of a few as well, they're called "Democrats".

Oh man, JUST saw a CNBC correspondent fudge a paraphrase of Obama supporters, "We're sticking with Carte---, er I mean, we're sticking with Obama..."

Wow, yet ANOTHER Freudian slip.

It's the classic cure to your kid smoking cigarettes. "So you like socialism, do you? Well I'm going to sit here while you smoke a whole 8 YEARS of socialism."

Socialism and ignorance go together. Socialism counts on ignorance and people wanting free stuff.

Congrats America, you elected a gun grabbing, progressive, civil liberties destroying, economic dunce, but at least Harvard grad just like you voted for!

fleur de lis's picture

We still have no proof he is a Harvard grad or Columbia grad or any other grad since we are forbidden to see his transcripts. In fact I have never seen proof he is a high school grad, although that would be easier to prove even though those grades are probably off limits, too.

CommunityStandard's picture

Except he had described both candidates.

fleur de lis's picture

Agreed, but the lack of school attendance and academic records, classmates, etc., only applies to Obama. He's like a phantom -- cropped up out of nowhere with a bio that cannot be verified.

We don't have a fucking clue about anything in this guy's background.
