Later on today, congressional elections results will start appearing.

This thread is meant to discuss, analyse and inform each other on the results of the election.

As soon as I find out any results, I will post them here. Since results will be shown late at night, I do not know if I will be awake the whole night (also, my roomate hates politics), if any of you have any info on the results please post here.

P.S= Due to the success of this thread, It is now officially the MTF US Politics thread. Feel free to post political articles, info, links,opinions etc that are relevant to US Politics.

Im keeping a close eye in Tennessee. Harold Ford Jr. is the underdog, but who know, he might pull it off, as you may already know, 40% of the registered voters already voted in the early elections when Ford Jr. was up in the polls.

The remaining polls in Tennesse are quite confusing. One puts Corker ahead 12 %, another 3% (within the margin of error) and yet another Poll shows ford ahead by 1%. Looks very interesting.

Very True...........although, I was shocked to see so many see corruption as the biggest issue in the exit polls.

If they don't do it differently, then everyone that voted for them needs to give them hell.

I used to lobby on environmental and women's issues, and most people don't realize that their representatives - Senate and House - rarely get more than a handful of letters or emails or calls on the vast majority of issues. Its only on the big issues that they get calls/letters/emails on. And when they do get people calling/writing about the issues, they pay attention.

I don't mean to preach :lol: :lol: , but its not only our civic responsibility to vote, but its our responsibility to watch what they are doing. And call them on it if they don't do what they want us to do. I'm probably preaching to the choir right now becuase obviously people on this thread are interested in politics, but most people are apathetic. So both sides of the aisle get away with everything. And the big money lobbyists get their way.

Okay...end of preaching. :haha:

At this moment, there is no plan for Iraq and with the Republicans in office, Bush is being allowed to keep waddling that line of giving the Americans BS answers while having no exit strategy. My hope is that with putting the Democrats in office, Bush will be forced to start to come up with an exit plan.........a realistic one. When Bush goes to the congress and senate asking for money for Iraq, he is given a ready made signature without questions being raised. With the Democrats in control, those billions going to Iraq will be questions.........and while I don't expect the Democrats to veto any monies for Iraq, I am hoping that the Democrats will set an agenda that includes sending some of the billions, set aside for Iraq, back to the US Social programs.

I"m convinced that Gore would have been able to keep the coutry united after the initial attack.(unlike Bush who drove a wedge b/t the people of the US-in my 44 yrs I had never seen such hate b/t the parties of this country) I'm sure he would have gone after Al Quida in Afgahnastan but not a bogus war that had nothing to do with the attack. Of course none of what Bush has done can be undone and we have to deal with it now. The war in Iraq was not only unessasary but also mismanged badly from the start yet according to Bush, Rumsfeld is doing a good job.

I believe that too. I do believe Gore would have done just as good a job in keeping the country united. I believe any president would have done a good job. However, I do not believe that Gore would have use the opportunity, after Afganistan, to go to Iraq...........a decision that I believe was very, very wrong. Considering the state of the US Foreign policy, there isn't a lower level of failure to attain by the US Government.

Instead of moving, we should split the country in two.

The good guys (that's us Democrats) get the North, West Coast, and Florida.

The bad guys (that's the republicans :haha:) get the South (minus Florida) and Midwest. They're also stuck with Texas.

Exit polls in Tennessee confirm that it probably won't be a good night for Ford.

The markets suggest that the Dems will win control of the House and the Reps will hold on to the senate. Tradesports gives a probability of 0.06 for the Reps keeping control of the House, that is roughly the same odds that Mahut would get to win against Federer at Wimbledon. Perhaps more importantly, the day started with a probability of 0.22, suggesting perhaps insiders trading on exit polls results.

Honesty? You cannot be serious.

I can't debate this right now because I'm too nervous so all I will say is ... I can't believe you're a Rafa fan. Rafa fans should be Democrat! :haha:

I have a bottle of wine I'm going to uncork the moment we get the House :p :lol:

LOL. Sheryl is the only one with an AMERICAN flag :haha:

Me too :p

So far it appears that Democrats are doing even better than expected everywhere. :D

That's because Americans have finally realized how bad it sucks with these Republicans in charge.

The 2004 election was frustration after frustration after frustration...

But, now i'm loving it :bounce: :lol:

I couldn't agree more.
