Sandy is going to throw everything in the twilight zone. I will consider us very, very lucky if we even have nationwide elections as scheduled.
If WWII couldn’t stop them, this better not.
Most of the country is NOT under this storm.
According to the actual projections (http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/storm_graphics/AT18/refresh/AL1812W5_NL+gif/204249W5_NL_sm.gif), Sandy will be exhausted by Saturday, with the remnants drifting back out into the Atlantic from Canada.
By Sunday, it will be sunny.
By Tuesday, there will be absolutely no reason to cancel voting.
There could be some major flooding inland with power out for a week.
There could be some serious coastal damage from the tidal surge tonight down in New Jersey that could wipe out some moderately large areas.
But it’s looking like the eye is missing NYC, the storm is moving west a little faster than anticipated, and the NYC/Connecticut/Boston coast will be mostly spared. As long as Manhattan subways and utilities aren’t flooded, the worst of the damage will have been avoided.
Actually it looks like the peak of everything regarding NYC is right about now?!?
The rain may still take another day to play out.
“By Tuesday, there will be absolutely no reason to cancel voting.”
Except the obvious one that any delay and chaos will give wider scope for the normal and expected efforts at Democrat election fraud; especially if the delays and “adjustments” can be expanded to Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Ohio.
Maintaining this regime’s hold on power is a reason sufficient for the administration to justify any action by the Federal government. Watch the efforts to restore the inevitable power outages. If they are prolonged, it could be because power companies were directed [to use a current phrase from the White House] “stand down”.
They have used up any tolerance or “slack” being cut.
Too bad, so sad. Acts of God are part of the game, and if they cost you the election, you just have to deal with it. We’re having the elections, electricity or no electricity.
They cannot delay the elections without an act of congress, the constitution is very clear on that, and since the house republicans and senate democrats will never agree with eachother on anything, especially on such short notice, the election will be held regardless of how many are actually able to vote. Obama could try some executive order shenaniganry, but would risk sparking armed conflict over what would be seen as blatantly ignoring the constitution to retain power. At the very least this storm will cause the losing side to question the legitimacy of the election (with no legal recourse) and given how polarizing this election is that is definitely not a good thing. Suppose O loses and some major urban centers in swing states had lower turnout as a result of the storm? Expect riots. They likely would’ve happened anyway if the liberal messiah loses, but this will make it a near certainty.
