There are 50 comments on the FiveThirtyEight story from Nov 2, 2012, titled Hurricane Sandy Threatens to Disrupt Voting on Election Day. In it, FiveThirtyEight reports that:

Some New Jersey voters may find their hurricane-damaged polling sites replaced by military trucks, with - in the words of the state's lieutenant governor, Kim Guadagno - "a well-situated national guardsman and a big sign saying, 'Vote Here.' " Half of the polling sites in Nassau County on Long Island still lacked power on Friday.

If mittwit loves this country so much why did he dodge the draft and hile in France during the Viet Nam war? Why haven't any of his sons served in the military? It would appear that cowardice runs in the family!

Clinton was much worse. Draft dodging Bill spoke out against our involvement during Vietnam on foreign soil giving aid and comfort to the enemy. He and Hanoi Jane Fonda should've been tried for treason and sedition along with that other scumbag and fellow left-wing Democrat Swift-Boat John Kerry.

Obama did NOTHING. He walked around and then split town..
“I appreciate that type of leadership," Christie said of Obama.

The Republican governor said most of the call centered on Obama's concern for New Jersey and then he continued to heap praise on the president, saying Obama's work has been "proactive." .

Christie started his praise of Obama during press briefings on Sunday, when he said "appreciated" Obama's outreach to him and the governors of other states being impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

During a press briefing on Monday afternoon, Christie described another call he had with Obama and said that the president and his aides have been working to benefit New Jersey.

“We appreciate the president’s efforts in that regard," Christie said earlier Monday. "He and his staff worked tremendously hard.”

Oh such praise from a ROmney bobblehead!

Is it Obama or the checks that he wants? Tell me. Just another thing. I read somewhere that HURRICANE KATRINA has cost the taxpayers over 140 BILLION DOLLARS so far. Was it Bush or the checks?

After the 2008 Repub debacle I was expecting a major third party. Somewhere around 15% of solid votes. This was just from hearsay. People get numbed out as the elites wear you down. So now we get the two major party standard bearers again. With that, I believe Mitt Romney will be elected President on Tuesday.

There ar 340,000,000 people in this country. If a small portion cannot get to the polls, because of a weather problem, or they have no utilities after turning volueers away that is tough. The election is the first Tuesday after the first monday in November according to te Consitutio, and that is that. Democrats know they are losing, and want to change the rules.

Obama should just save the jet fuel and send it to NY and NJ to help the people he hasn't, and work instead on his brackets for next year, he will have plenty of time to enjoy basketball.

Romney 315
Obama 223

PA POLL JOLT: O 47% R 47%
MI: R 47% O 46%...

Indiana (11 electoral votes). Uncontested. Romney.

North Carolina (15 electoral votes). Obama has abandoned this target. Romney.

Florida (29). The biggest target state has trended Romney since the Denver debate. I don't see any segment of the electorate favoring Obama more than in 2008, and I see some (South Florida Jews) favoring him less. Romney.

Ohio (18). The anti-Romney auto bailout ads have Obama running well enough among blue-collar voters for him to lead most polls. But many polls anticipate a more Democratic electorate than in 2008. Early voting tells another story, and so does the registration decline in Cleveland's Cuyahoga County. In 2004, intensity among rural, small -town and evangelical voters, undetected by political reporters who don't mix in such circles, produced a narrow Bush victory. I see that happening again. Romney.

Virginia (13). Post-debate polling mildly favors Romney, and early voting is way down in heavily Democratic Arlington, Alexandria, Richmond and Norfolk. Northern Virginia Asians may trend Romney. Romney.

Colorado (9). Unlike 2008, registered Republicans outnumber registered Democrats, and more Republicans than Democrats have voted early. The Republican trend in 2010 was squandered by weak candidates for governor and senator. Not this time. Romney.

Iowa (6). The unexpected Romney endorsements by the Des Moines Register and three other newspapers gave voice to buyer's remorse in a state Obama carried by 10 points. Democrats' traditional margin in early voting has declined. Romney.

New Hampshire (4). Polls are very tight here. I think superior Republican intensity will prevail. Romney.

Pennsylvania (20). Everyone would have picked Obama two weeks ago. I think higher turnout in pro-coal Western Pennsylvania and higher Republican percentages in the Philadelphia suburbs could produce a surprise. The Romney team evidently thinks so too. Their investment in TV time is too expensive to be a mere feint, and, as this is written, Romney is planning a Sunday event in Bucks County outside Philly. Wobbling on my limb, Romney.


Wisconsin (10). Recent polling is discouraging for Republicans. But Gov. Scott Walker handily survived the recall effort in June with a great organizational push. Democrats depend heavily on margins in inner-city Milwaukee (population down) and the Madison university community. But early voting is down in university towns in other states. The Obama campaign is prepared to turn out a big student vote, but you don't see many Obama signs on campuses. Romney.

I was at breakfast with an attorney who said they cannot change the electio day. What they would have to do is hold the election,and after 21 days the areas that were under water would have to hold special elections. No way for the Democrat pretend King to Continue stealing votes. It won't be close
