Fight night: Here’s what to watch for in Tuesday’s election

Georgia is one of  the state’s being watched closely on Election Day. With a hotly contested governor’s race and two congressional races, the outcome will help determine the extent of an expected Republican rout.

For those of you trying to make sense of what’s at stake nationally, here’s watch for in Tuesday’s election.

Wait until Wednesday for close to final House tallies, and that Deal avoids a runoff. There will be very little confirmation of contested races before midnight.

The AJC will be like the weatherman who incorrectly predicts rain/sleet/snow. When Deal wins without a runoff, the AJC will just pretend they never predicted one.

Where do you silly people get this stuff? That’s right, you make it up and repeat it hoping sheeple will fall for it and many do.

We finished 8 years of the Worst President Ever, a Republican and now you think people are stupid enough to fall for this? Correct you are for this area that voted Bush it twice. The very people in this country that get burned by the GOP time after time vote GOP time after time. It makes no sense. It makes no more sense than flying the Rebel flag. You keep getting your butt kicked by the same mess that you support.

NO Ralph. I only wish i could agree with you. But, the AJC will turn the facts around and make it sound like they were predicting a DEAL VICTORY all along for the past several months. The AJC will never admit they’ve done everything within thier legal powers to keep Nathan Deal from being governor of Georgia. It would make me very happy if another copy of the AJC was never sold in the peach state.

Worst Prez ever? That would be The Great and Powerful Community Organizer! And he’s done it in only 2 years. Great job!

Has one single person in the history of modern elections ever had his or her mind changed by a taped robo-call message? If they have, they shouldn’t be allowed to drive or operate any other machinery.

” Has one single person in the history of modern elections ever had his or her mind changed by a taped robo-call message?” Ye I changed my mind last election after the straw that broke the camels back robo-call (The tenth one in the same number of hours for the same candidate came at 11:30 PM and woke me up from a sound sleep). I decided that any candidate that inconsiderate would not get my vote. So he didn’t. And he did not win either. Must have upset a lot of voters with the endless robo-calls.

“one of the state’s” ???

one of the state’s what?

The person who can’t differentiate between states (plural) and state’s (possessive) shouldn’t being writing for a supposedly major newspaper.

The AJC is not a major newspaper. It was “Covered Dixie Like the Dew”, but has drastically lost readership and credibility shrinking to only be a Democratic party organ that “Smears Metro Atlanta like the Smog”.

Ralph, why do you bother with the AJC at all?

Real Vince – for local news and sports.

And to point out and correct the leftist political bias. Sort of a hobby the last couple of weeks.

How am I doing?

Oh, Real Vince – recall our debate about how slow and crooked Fulton County has been with ballots?

You might want to read where even this leftist AJC outlet has noticed: http://www.ajc.com/news/georgia-politics-elections/fulton-elections-chief-guarantees-711286.html

Maybe the dead in Fulton County voted early this year.
