Skip to comments.Unprecedented Turnout in Woodbridge Virginia
Posted on 11/06/2012 9:11:45 AM PST by McBuff
I just returned from my local poll in Virginia. In all my years here (19), this turnout was largest BY FAR. The longest line I ever remember was around 75 people. . .today, it was at least 500 and over an hour wait. I pray to God that this bodes well for Romney. Today, we will discover whether or not the adage "Its the economy, stupid" has been replaced with a new one "It's the HANDOUT, stupid!"
Good report, McBuff. Thanks.
Same here in teensy weensy Norvell Michigan. Serious turnout at both precincts.
is your county blue red or purple?
Did they look like Republicans (cheery, optimistic, well-groomed) or Democrats (silent, sullen, slovenly dressed)?
Huge turnout bad news for incumbants.
Mrs. 2ndDivisionVet graduated from Woodbridge High School in 1981 and lived across the street from it. Where are you?
Went Blue for Obama in 08 (Prince William County)...went purple in 2010..so trending in the right direction.
A Failed Communist.
If America votes for 0bama, then I secede and those other people can have him as their president.
Lots of Carhartts and coveralls around here.
It’s like that here in rural central Virginia. I’m going out a bit later to vote, but my husband went earlier. Usually we can just walk right up to the voting machine, or at the most we might have to wait for one or two people to finish. Today, husband said the place was packed, with a line wrapped around the building.
Believe me, that’s a first, and an astonishing one.
Demographics of Prince William County:
But much of Northern Virginia is made up of government workers. Some of these might be military. What’s your sense as to the type of voters, pro-Obama or pro-Romney?
Woodbridge Va. is not Bork Obunga territory.
CNBC was on the TV this morning in the gym...they were interviewing some guy named Larry (not Kudlow)...i could not hear the volume but read the CC....
i don’t know if Larry is a pollster, economist, prognosticator...
anyway they were grilling this guy as he said through September that obozo would win the election than in October changed it to Romney...he basically said Romney would win because of voter enthusiasm in the GOP, the polls were rigged with high rat samples, the rats would not get the turnout they did in 2008- same stuff we’ve been saying at Freep for three months....
now here’s the important part- he was in Fairfax, Virginia being interviewed remotely and they start talking about Virginia...this and that, etc...finally this Larry says to the hosts in the CNBC studios “i know you can see that long line of voters behind me- that does not bode well for the president”...
Not to change the subject, but 99.9% of ALL Americans are slovenly dressed pigs. Cut offs, flip flops, piercings, tats, fat guts, billboard graphic t-shirts like 12 year olds, bizarre facial hair, ball caps on backwards, etc.
Heard on the teevee: “The most dangerous place to be today is between a Republican voter and a polling booth.”
WMAL said 1000 turn out this morning.
I just figure those long lines and hours of waiting are the same people that were willing to wait 4 hours for a chicken sandwich :)
Actually, silent, sullen and slovenly dressed. .pretty much describes me! I have to admit, though. . I was worried that I was seeing more "takers" then "makers" there. . .but that's just me. . .remember I am silent and sullen normally. . .it's my morbid, pessimistic, Irish nature. Please God give us a victory today!!
