Lombardia Real-Time Vote Tracker

Tyler Durden's picture

While the Italian exit polls provided a breath of fresh air for statists everywhere, and hope that despite his recent resurgence, Berlusconi ascent won't result in a Hung Parliament outcome, threatening Italy's access to the ECB's OMT program, the final outcome for the 158-seat Senate majority will hinge on the final Lombardia vote, which as explained previously is critial for the final senate breakdown. Readers can track the real-time data as Lombardia votes come in via Italy's TG24/Sky at the following link, while the general Senate breakdown in real time can be found here.

And the full Italian Senate, where things just got interesting:

Why do they get so many political parties and we only get two?

It's dependent on how dumb the population is... It only takes two "choices" to fool Americans into believing they're accurately represented. It takes more in some places.

This is a great way to put it.

I don't understand humanity's fascination with electing an "alpha male represenative".  Especially since most of the time, the people "we" elect are the exact opposite of said male.

Voting is the biggest trolling humanity has ever inflicted on itself.

you don't vote for the political party that supports the enemy soccer team...

The number actually matches the number of national soccer teams!

Yeah because all their parties in Europe have made their situation so much better. (rolls eyes)

Also in Europe, parties select their own nominees and in America we can vote for the nominees of our party. So here we focus more on the candidate themselves and in Europe they typically focus on the party as a whole . Here different viewpoints just decide on which of the two main parties is closest to them and can voice their more specific views by voting in primaries for which candidate will represent their party. So here Traditionalists, Libertarians, Nationalists, Neo-cons, and Constitutionalists all coexist within the Republican Party by battling over who their nominees will be, whereas in Europe they would have to break up into smaller parties so their nominee could more accurately reflect the views of their constituency. The Democrat Party just tries to mimick the views of all the European parties.

Prepare for Bungageddon

what a waste of bunga... you'd have thought they could have added another stallion to that beautiful carriage, before it turns to monti pumpkin. 

From the villas of Costa Smeralda to the shores of Sicily...a bunga is something you share in good company; Monti is as bungad as Grillo is geddoned.

The outcome is always known in Italy, how much will it cost to buy a vote or two. Sounds like everywhere else really

Since when did the America markets care about Italy? And why are they cheering the socialists?

DavidC's picture

Only when they can make it a reason to ramp them up.

Lombardia is also crucial for Lega Nord. They are a seperatist party that owns a lot of regions...

What if they take Lombardia and they push for a seperation referendum?? The result would be unpredictable and for sure would cause even more havoc on the markets.

Civil war in Italy? Unlikely... but eh.

Italien uber alles!

Always an option to summon the corpse of Garibaldi. Anyone with his guts around nowadays?

"Con Monti" - italians are not afraid to speak the truth

kito's picture

As the italians continue to hand over their first born to the statists, I find myself shaking my head at the sheer, blatant wanton ignorance of the populace.......

ElvisDog's picture

Yeah, just as was the case with the Greek elections, it's hard to have any sympathy for a society that re-elects the same people who have been screwing them in the ass. And, yeah, I know the comparisons with the U.S. are the same, but in the case of the U.S. austerity has not yet hit the general population and the meme "deficits don't matter" is still in play.

Elections are irrelevant since EU member's Governments are there just to comply with non elected Euro Burocracy regulations that comes from a non elected EU Commission.A fax machine in every local Government will save taxpayers a whole bunch of money
