Refresh our collective memory on the predictive accuracy of these truly “early voters”.

Four years ago it went 15-6 for Obama. Fingers crossed for a good omen...

And indicative of nothing. Greg Craig was sent up there in 2008 primary to get it for Obama for perception which he did.

Whats their track record? I know they did this a long long time ago then stopped for a long time then resumed again in 1996, right?

Thanks for the live thread. I’ve been waiting all night for Dixville Notch and Hart’s Location.

Prepare to be disapointed. Gay friendly Dixville Notch isn't what it used to be.

That was Hart’s Location that stopped in the 60’s and started again in 1996. Dixville Notch started in 1960 I believe and has done so since.

That is pretty much the same odds as if they had flipped a coin.
