Looks like your play by play on the election didn't go over so well.
So how'd Johnson do? He didn't play much of a factor in Georgia or Alabama.

Did you ever notice how the Red/Blue state maps look like the Civil War maps? Red is the Confederacy and blue the union, lol, maybe an indicator of things to come in the future.

Odd thing about that, here in the Heart of the Deep South of Dixie, in the middle of the Red... is Muscogee County, Blue all the way, and has been for a long time:

Funny thing, though, is that in the "Red State of Georgia" our Muscogee County, which is where the Columbus of this Columbus Forum is located, almost always (if not always) votes Democrat in the Presidential elections.

As I posted on this subject back in 2005:

Kerry won in Shadowville

7 years ago
From the morning newspaper:
"John Kerry [...] led President George W. Bush by a comfortable
2,800-vote margin in Muscogee County, another Democratic stronghold...
Democrats took Muscogee County by 4,000-5,000 votes in 2000, 1996 and
1992. The Republicans, behind G.H.W. Bush, captured the county in
1988..
This year's results show the Kerry-Edwards team claiming 32,772 votes,
or 51.36 percent. The Bush-Cheney combination recieved 30,702 vote, or
48.12 percent."
The people of Columbus-Phenix City are not easily fooled, which is why they
make up some of the finest audiences in the world.

And yesterday's elections showed Muscogee County to /still/ be majority Blue, majority Democrat, as Obama carried the county once again:

Muscogee County, Georgia votes for:
