    Joke doesn't even come close. This is news but not news. They had already admitted to attempted vote suppression (I have a link somewhere, I'll see if I can go dig it up).

    He probably projected it out based on how the counties voted.

    They broke for Obama 59-40 and 62-37.

    ... long lines on Election Day

    I voted early in Florida and waited about an hour - nice outcome.

    drove by the voting station on election day and there were no lines or anyone waiting - next time I'll just vote on election day.

    it really is a disgrace when a citizen is discourage from voting because of delays on the day of the election - it is almost a form of gerrymandering when it occurs primarily in similarly political locations and no doubt encouraged by the state Republican administration.

    Rick Scott will pay a big price for his voter repression tactics. Scott forgot that many republicans got caught in those long miserable lines along with independents...
    I live in florida and I know one couple that got in line to vote for romny and were so pissed by the time they actually got in to vote they voted for obama.
    Many older republicans that didnt vote early abandoned the lines also id bet...Rick Scott is a fail and I cant wait till I can vote against him...Unfortunately I voted for him last time.
