Electoral Reform- Part 5- Why Tuesday?
The answer to this question may surprise many. A 1792 law required that the electors chosen meet on the first Wednesday in December to decide the winner of the presidency. Elections themselves had to be held within 34 days of that Wednesday, although the actual day of the vote was left to the individual states. Being an agrarian society, voters had to travel to the | Read More »
What Happened In Ohio?
This was a narrative/identity election not an ideological one and Romney lost the narrative and failed to motivate key undecideds and low energy Republicans while Obama motivated his base and managed to increase turnout in a few key segments. For more of my take on what happened and why I was wrong keep reading.

Despite what the polls say, Mitt Romney will win by double digits… here’s why
2012 will not be a reprise of 2000. Although Barack Obama is building an army / phalanx of lawyers to try and redirect the election to the courts with the hope that the justices will lean against throwing out a sitting president, it won’t happen. 2000 only happened because the election was so close, with a mere half percent difference between the candidates. In 2012 | Read More »
Out the door
It was on the chilly side this morning in the Dallas area. I know this because I had to stand outside in it — in shirt sleeves — for almost ten minutes, waiting in line to vote. I’ve voted at the same location for five Election Days now, and never before have I seen the line extend outside the building. There were, as I learned | Read More »
Watch Michigan Tonight: McCain Won’t Win Michigan, But It’s Still a Bell-Weather

Conservative Voter Registration – Whose doing it?
I have spent the last two weeks searching the internet in attempt to find some conservative/republican organizations that specialize in voter registration. While I’ve found dozens of them that have a liberal/left leaning, I’ve not been able to find one organization that is out there trying to register conservative leaning individuals. If anyone knows of one, please submit. Thanks.
George Will: Obama wins in a landslide
I watched George Will this past Sunday on This Week. He seems to think that the polls we are seeing now are vastly underestimating Obama’s strength because he theorizes that Obama will bring out millions of new young voters and black voters that are not being accounted for in current turnout models that the pollsters are using. George Will thinks the race isn’t really close, | Read More »
