For whom did you vote?

This is an open presidential election thread where you can inform us of your vote. Just to get things started, as per my endorsement, I did not vote for anyone for president. I'll be posting updates here as information about the results begins to circulate.

The final forecasts are as follows:  

Gallup: Romney 50, Obama 49  
Rasmussen: Romney 49, Obama 48  
Silver: Obama 51, Romney 48

 It may be worth nothing that the Gallup deviation in 2008 exaggerated Obama's percentage by 2.0 and was 2.0 too low on McCain. Rasmussen nailed McCain and was 1.0 low on Obama's total.


UPDATE 6:32 PM

Pasco County in Florida reports the following with 67.2% turnout so far.

Republicans: 89,359 of 120,860 voted. (73.9%)
Democrats: 72,273 of 108,154 voted (66.8%)

In 2008, McCain got 110,104 votes to 102,417 for Obama with 73.4% total turnout.  That's 1.08 Republican/Democrat vs 1.24 tonight.  Conclusion: initial edge to Romney.


UPDATE 6:45 PM

Drudge reporting early exit polls indicating Florida and North Carolina for Romney, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Nevada for Obama,  Ohio, Virginia, Colorado, and Iowa too close to call.  Another good sign for Romney, as media always spins exit polls toward Democrats.  We'll learn a lot more once Virginia results are reported; that's the key state now.


UPDATE 7:00 PM

No surprises yet.  Virginia too soon to call.  Romney does take Indiana, which is a big switch from 2008, but expected.  Irrelevant initial Electoral College count is 19-3 Romney.  However, Romney has 53-41 edge among Virginia independents in exit poll; Obama won them in 2008.


UPDATE 7:45 PM

Electoral College is now 49-3 but still no surprises or calls on Virginia or Ohio.   First sign that Obama might win: exit polls report New Hampshire independents are voting 51-45 for him there.   Correction: Obama is up by 2 points among NH independents, 10 points less than in 2008.


UPDATE 8:40 PM

Politico has Romney up 56.3 to 42.3 in Virginia with 31.7 percent reporting but still no call there.  There must be some major Democratic counties missing.  Neck and neck in Florida with 6 million votes reported.


UPDATE 9:18

It's starting to look as if I'm wrong.  Pennsylvania was just called for Obama.  If Virginia and Ohio both go for Obama as well, Romney is done.

I didn't vote. If the conventional wisdom upholds that the incumbent gets 1-2% extra over the polls then Obama easily wins assuming the polls are mostly accurate. More than any election in my life I'm curious to see who will win for some reason. Probably because the predictions are all over the place.

I voted for Virgil Goode for President (Constitution Party) because Ron Paul was only a write-in possibility and in Missouri "write in" candidates often don't show up in the final tallies. I would have abstained completely (for the same reasons that Vox outlined) except for some local and state issues that have some merit.

Wrote in Ron Paul. I fully understand the logic behind not voting, but at the same time, it provides a direct mechanism for signalling discontent with the two-party system and their candidates. That may matter or it may not, I don't think anyone really knows. Couldn't vote for Gary Johnson because of his inability to understand (or refusal to acknowledge) the proper limits of government's duties, a fatal shortcoming for a libertarian.

It was worthwhile going to vote if only to see that, in my voting district in Texas, there are now far more Libertarians on the ballot than Democrats.

If anything, voting in a presidential election is about as close to "doing nothing" that I can think of. I mean, you essentially waste time, energy and fuel that could be put toward productive uses and instead you spend those resources to go stand in land, punch a card think to yourself, "I have done my part!

I am (perhaps) less dubious of Romney than most -- but not for my religious devotions. (I'm also enthusiastic about Ryan...even though his church was formerly referred to in the book "Mormon Doctrine" as "the whore of all the earth".)

Both Romney and Ryan are good, decent, intelligent men. How they will turn back the government from overspending by 43% is beyond my understanding. But Ryan, at least, has admittedly publically and repeatedly that THIS IS THEIR CHALLENGE. (We get no such acknowledgement from the Obama camp.)

At least Romney/Ryan recognize the enemy. I'd rather support them than shoot them in the back -- or deny them support when, by doing so, the other guy wins.

This election is not much different from all the others I have experienced as a voter since 1972. Americans do not typically vote FOR anybody....they vote AGAINST the other sonofabitch. This election smells like 1980 to me, with the generally despised incumbent (Jimmy Carter) reported in the polls to be ahead of the reckless cowboy challenger (Ronald Reagan) up until the election. Of course, American frustration with the rotten economy and foreign debacles led to a landslide victory for Reagan. I sense the same frustration this election, for much the same reasons.

Granted, there really IS little chance Romney (or Congress) can turn things around at this late juncture. (And Americans may crucify their christ just as quickly as they will crown him.) But Romney is a decent man for the job. Not a clown. Not a crook. Not a child.

It's one thing to say "We're all doomed!" It's another to leave a child, a crook or a clown at the controls. Nineveh may yet repent (even if it has to repudiate its debt, "invent" a new currency, ease the government back down by mandatory attrition, "golden handshakes" (with fiat currency), big inflation, tariffs, tax breaks, and indulgences for immigration violations).

Things can get better even as they get worse. I'd like to have a competent pilot at the controls during the crash landing.

Only half the adult citizens in this country who are eligible to vote ever bother to register to vote. Roughly, half of those registered to vote ever bother to show up to cast their vote. By not voting, you stand with the majority of your fellow citizens. But I had rather be one of the quarter or so of the electorate who show up to cast a ballot. I admit that the choices in 2008 were just too awful to bear and I did not vote last time, even though I voted in the primary for Ron Paul. This time, I voted to correct a mistake that I made in 2008.

Is this self-interest? I do not think so. A vote for Obamba would certainly be a vote to hasten the demise of this once-great nation. A vote for Romney will either save the country (unlikely) or would at least make the train wreck in slow motion, instead of high speed.

Did not vote. Not out of principle, but mathematics. From the individual perspective, there is no reason to vote. And, if your vote was the "one that mattered", the election would go to a judge or secretary of state to be recounted or re-certified and your vote would not matter anyway.

"Obama will ruin our country!"

Finally could take it no more and blurted out:

"You DO realise that Obama has been POTUS for the last 4 years? The only thing he has done other than continuing W Bush's policies is national healthcare. [A.)Not like it's an Obama invention---"progressives" have been pushing it since Roosevelt...um TEDDY ROOSEVELT!!!! and B.) Obamacare is, at minimum, loosely based on..ROMNEYcare.]

Romney isn't a crook and didn't break any civil or criminal laws (that I know of). He was clearly going to win at the RNC.

I'm gonna' take a wild guess that immigrants coming here to work is a primary reason that you are here (assuming, of course, you are in the USA). My grandparents came here to work and I'm ok with others seeking out the same opportunity as long as they do it legally and without the expectations that the government exists to make sure they can live here without working. From what I can find, RP believes pretty much the same way.

That's a very good question, Joshua D. What would I do?

For one, if Obama were to win, it would mean that my country is truly lost.

It would mean that (1) the electorate was too stupid, divided, or corrupt to elect an honorable, competent leader or (2) that the election process is hopeless flawed and fraudulent.

I'll grant you (3) -- that we really don't "choose" our presidents anyway. But, in reality, we never have. The first few rose to prominence and power -- and stood out long enough to be proposed and propel to the office -- by the aristocratic Founders, not the riff-raff. The White House, ever after, has largely been filled by a succession of "nobodies", with the exception of those who have actually DONE something (for good or ill) either before or during their tenure in office. In modern era, perfect "nobodies" (like JFK, WJC, and BHO) have been able to manufacture identities with media complicity.

For the doomed Titanic, any "nObama" at the helm will do.

But I'm still hoping we're more like a US Airways craft, gliding for a forced landing. I'd rather have a Chesley Sullenberger at the controls, if that's the case.

But, should nObama be our pilot for the next four years, what will I do? Truthfully? With a wife and seven children, a huge mortgage, and a job I can't replace?

I'd suffer with the rest of us, I guess, all the while complaining: "You wouldn't vote for Ron Paul! You wouldn't vote for Romney! Now you're stuck with Obama!"

It will be hell. (More or less, either way.)

The RNC is political theater. Romney was "chosen" to be the director. It was his show. (Sure, we all wanted to see the out-takes. But they didn't make the cut. Director's choice.)

Take consolation in the fact that everyone who WANTED to know or who COULD understand -- those who had "ears to hear" -- heard RP's voice, regardless. Unfortunately, there were too few of those that "heard"(this time).

You wanted the Son (Bar) of the Father (Abba). But the crowd voted for Barabbas.

(It's a strained analogy, I know, but I think you'll find Romney to be less of a criminal -- though certainly not less of a strict Constitutionalist -- than you suppose.) Unfortunately, all the Founding Fathers were eliminated in the primaries this go-around.

I wrote in Ron Paul. I was planning on not voting for anyone for president, but I discovered the capability to write in a candidate on the ballot, which I did not think I had in Texas. If they throw the votes, then I voted for no one after all.

I voted for Ron Paul but it won't count, as his name was not on the "approved" write-in list (this is in Ohio). Voted no to all taxes/renewals and a constitutional amendment.

Did not vote.
