Astoria, New York HUGE Voter Turnout, Very Long Lines!
OrthodoxNet ^ | 11/5/2012 | OrthodoxNet

Posted on 11/06/2012 1:20:12 PM PST by ezfindit

Heard from family members in Astoria, NY. They're seeing a HUGE turnout at the polls. Wait times of 45 minutes to 1.5 hrs or more in line.

These are the biggest lines they've EVER seen when voting (over 30 year span)! This is the kind of passion and enthusiasm we've seen from Romney voters, not the Obama "fear and revenge" crew.

It looks like New York may be in play after all. Keep praying America, keep praying!

Nope. NY is NOT in play - only the most seriously deluded thinks Romney can carry it.

Its a lock for Obama, thanks to New York City!

I believe people are going to be pleasantly surprised tonight! Romney is going to win states that are not traditionally won by the GOP!

Well, I doubt it’s in play, but I think it bodes well for us nationwide. And hey, I’m in Cali, so I feel your pain and share your dream :)

No line in my voting place in a suburb of MN today. My suburb is rather purple—probably more blue than red.

There were probably about 5 old people voting and about 4 moms , and two guys dressed like deer hunters, when I was there.

Hard to believe NY would be in play, but one thing is clear: Obama enthusiasm is just not there.

Hard to tell if these people will actually be switching to Romney... We will see tonight. But Obama margin will definitely be way down from 2008.

In 2008, it was a pro-Obama frenzy. In 2012? None of that. Not a single pro-Obama sign, button or bumper sticker.

Unlikely NY in play...too many Obama-bots in & around NYC. However, a good indicator this may be an @$$-whipping for Bathhouse Barry, The Gaffe-O-Matic (Biden), and Dingy Harry’s Senate ‘RATS.

Just wish we had a Ronald Reagan conservative instead of a Bob Dole country clubber on the ballot. Rep. Ryan as running mate makes it a bit more palatable, like Gov. Palin in 2008.

I seriously doubt that New York is in play nationally because of NYC, but high turnout in other parts of the state can definitely help us add House seats!

because of all of the chaos around here in NY, Romney will come a lot closer that Republicans in the past but he won’t win NY - NJ may be another story.

I have posted the possibility that if the early returns seriously break to Romney and some key states get called early (fla,va,oh,wi,pa,nh) then a Romney win is a forgone conclusion. At that point it becomes STRICTLY an enthusiasm vote for the west. With this in mind ca,or,nv could definately come our way. We are working here in the east to do our part. California’s electorate would be a rather large cherry that provides a mandate and in turn SCARES anyone on the other side to death.

“Its a lock for Obama, thanks to New York City!”

But what may help Romney there is that many New Yorkers are probably very upset with the federal government due to lackluster assistance with Hurricane Sandy.

A lot of traditional areas that normally go Dem will be much closer then Obama would like. The enthusiasm is notably absent and they have had to campaign in traditionally safe states late in the game.

i live in liberalsville, NY (new castle....home of the clintons) and i agree- NY is not in play but it may be an indicator of what’s going to happen in those “light blue” and “light red” states....here’s why...

four years ago my polling station was packed- you could not get into the parking lot and the lines were long- super long for this polling station as everyone was there to vote for obozo....

i voted the same time this morning (about 11AM)- it was empty...the parking lot at the entrance of the poll was half full...in and out in three minutes...

again- don’t think NY goes Romney yet if obama enthusiasm is down in an area where four years ago 8 of every ten cars had obama stickers, what’s it going to be like in a toss-up area??

the only thing that concerns me is how does the thread starter know Astoria, which is full of greeks, hispanics and latinos. is lining up to vote for Romney???

I think this is all over the country.

Just got off the phone with my father in South Bend, Ind. He said he’s never had to wait before but a 30 minute wait today.

His precinct generally runs 60/40 Republican.

Yep. She was on the Florida ballot as well.

With Cindy Sheehan as her running mate.

“Greeks and Italians HATE HATE HATE Obama. I live in NYC area and know a lot of greeks, hard working people - hate obama.”

You’re absolutely right.

However, my Communist (greek) uncle in Chicago loves Obama, and so do my mother/sister.

Listening to them talk politics is like watching episodes of the Twilight Zone that were scrapped and never aired b/c they were “too far fetched.”

New York to Romney? Not much chance of that. But it might be closer than expected, assuming Governor Cuomo’s last minute attempt to help the Obama campaign doesn’t achieve the wanted results.

Anyhow, if Romney wins I’ll buy the state a drink!

I live on the UES of Manhattan and I’m not kidding myself NYC or NYS will go for Romney. However, I was delighted to go the polls this morning and spot three NUNS on line to vote. And these were not plainclothed, lefty Nuns-on-the-Bus type of nuns: these were nuns in full regalia: old-fashioned habits and long robes. They were from the Sisters of Life convent in the East 60s. That order’s mission is to persuade pregnant women in distress from having abortions. So, I know that there were at least four people — those three nuns and moi — on the UES who voted for Romney this morning!

New York has the same chance of being in play as Rosie O’donnell has of being skinny and voting Republican.

I think the key here is... who is actually willing to wait in a line for 2 hours out in the cold to vote? That has got to cut back on certain demographics. Are they Romney voters or Obama voters? I do think that Romney voters probably on average have more persistence this year.
