Election Results 2012: Open Thread...ongoing

by: Jamoca

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 22:19:20 PM EST

Okay, just to give you all some early returns trends and how things look to be going... PA...

It looks like there will be a Democratic...
-Attorney General (Corbett has no one but himself to blame for that)
-Auditor General
-Treasurer (incumbent winning)

for U.S. Senate:

Tom Smith is getting taken to the woodshed and whacked about the head and shoulders by Bob Casey Jr. with a bag of Anthracite Coal

for PA State Senate:

out of the 25 races being contested, 16 are going Democratic or Independent

For President:

Obama is well out in front of Romney in PA in the hundreds of thousands of votes kind of lead

Over all, nationwide, things are panning out about as most of the poll models for state by state electoral had laid out...but Florida is a tight race to say the least right now and North Carolina and Virginia are still in play.  

For U.S. Congress:

We may finally be saying good-bye to Joe "I stink" Pitts, the years and years of doing nothing finally has caught up to him
(Update: after vote tallies were updated to reflect the full counts this morning, Joe Pitts, unfortunately got re-elected to another term, as did many other malcontents and useless members of Congress, whose goals seem to be to find new and more disgusting ways to undermine the very government and nation that pays their salaries, including: Steve King, Darrell Issa, Eric Cantor, and Michelle Bachmann.  There are others, but I'm not going list every single one. )

Sadly Lou Barletta looks to be on pace for re-election and that's just a shame and sad that we have that many bitter and hateful people in this state.  

Update: Allen West lost his seat in Florida, when you walk around and spout the kinds of absurd, vitriol and nonsense that he has repeatedly, you are going to get your butt handed to you, because that just turns off even people who might've voted for you before.  

Locally, for PA State House:

Mark Rozzi is on pace to handily win against Mr. Bigot Jim Billman, TEA Party did NOT fare well at all this time around and that's what happens when you let your crazy out of the bag for all to see and people are revolted by it and rightfully so!

Newcomer Karen Mogel is NOT going to be Judy Schwank and Judy looks to be winning that seat handily.

With 93% of the vote in (0.00 / 0)
Pitts has a narrow lead with 51.4% of the vote in PA-16.  Strader ran a great campaign.

What campaign? (0.00 / 0)
Pitts "only" got 55% and Strader got about 40% even after Pitts got stuck with the City of Reading.  Get your head out of our butt, John.

That was the vote total at the time (0.00 / 0)
according to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  Perhaps you should look at the time stamp of the comment before making a fool of yourself.

Maybe you shouldn't (0.00 / 0)
make pompous predictions before all the votes are in.  Once again, head out of butt would enable you to see more clearly.

[ Parent ]
You're a real jerk. (0.00 / 0)
I was making a comment based on the facts as they were at the time.  That's what open threads are about.

Follow me on Twitter:  JohnPMorgan

Of course (0.00 / 0)
maybe you like it in there.

This comment doesn't make any sense. (0.00 / 0)
But then none of yours do.
