Often after months of watching very small minded politicians scapegoat low income workers, immigrants, women, and minorities for votes it is easy to forget just how large the United States is. For those in the Europe even more so. For instance one could fit England into the U.S. 39 times and continental Europe over four times. Now that’s quite a lot of land mass.
If you are watching the election’s in the United States you should settle in because several time zones will have to be crossed before any major decisions are known. It is less than one hour until the first polls close on the east coast and I thought it would be useful to share those states you should keep an eye on for at least the first few hours (all times Eastern Standard). At 7:30 P.M. turn your attention to Virginia. At 7:30 P.M. the polls close in Ohio and North Carolina. North Carolina should fall to Romney but keep your eye by how much.
Early report indicate that early and absentee votes by Democrats were 53% vs. only 38% for Republicans. This is significant and independent voters will clearly decide what happens there. At 8:00 P.M. the polls will close in New Hampshire and Florida. Both important battleground states. The votes will be close. Can you say “potential recount” close for Florida? At 9:00 P.M. Colorado and Wisconsin close their polls and the votes in those states could very well point the way to who is the next President of the United States.
Get comfortable as we could be in for a long night. As you wait be sure to follow the latest antics of the white nationalist American Third Position Party. Its candidate for President, Merlin Miller is on the ballot in New Jersey, Tennessee, and Colorado. While no chance of winning it is a test of their strength in those states.
