Western Queens (NY) Report:

Voted at 9:45 am-Longest lines I've ever seen at this polling place (probably because I normally vote at 6-7am) Election district has large population of Hispanics but something new I've noticed this time-I'm seeing a large amount of Eastern European and Irish voters-all no doubt new citizens to this area. Eastern Euros are mostly Russian and Polish. I would guess about a quarter of voters are older white voters (mostly home-owners who for whatever reason have decided to stay here-and who, for the record seem to be largely Romney voters)

I know a number of Russian immigrants, and to a man they can’t stand Obama. In fact, a number of them are Ron Paul supporters.
One has been a strong opponent of ObamaCare, explaining his experience with govt run health care in several countries.
Of course, the reason most of them left Russia was to get away from communism.

i just got back from voting in New Castle, NY- liberalsville, USA...home of the clintons and RFK Jr....
four years ago you could not get into the parking lot of the church and then you could not find a space to park...the place was packed...
this morning??? empty...the parking spaces in front of the main entrance were half full...i was in and out in five minutes...i wore a T-shirt that had a picture of Reagan and underneath it was written “HERO”...then a picture of obama and underneath was written “ZERO”...
Upon entering i was talking with a friend who had just voted...real liberal but nice guy....he opened up my jacket to look at my t-shirt and a passing woman said “I love it!!”...
why is this important?? further proof that there’s no sense of urgency to vote for obama even in the most uber liberal areas...

The Irish immigrants are all liberal Democrats: they hail from a Welfare State and expect the same thing here, except, with abundant jobs and vigorous economic growth. (They do not understand basic economics, which is apparently not taught in their schools.) While previous generations of Irish immigrants would have been put off by the modern Democrat Party's embrace of infanticide and homosexual “marriage”, this generation has rejected Christian beliefs and become as godless as the rest of the Eurotrash. Not your father's Ireland.

I agree. I have teacher training in a heavily African-American area in Nassau County,Long Isand. In 2008, the lines were out the door of the school with people waiting to vote. Today, there are not more than 3 people waiting for each voting machine. I have been monitoring the traffic flow since I arrived and there does not seem to be anywhere near the volume of O voters as there was in 2008.
