School Time Rock - The Electoral College

From Tom the Dancing Bug

November 30, 2016

The real reason we lost. (No punches pulled!)

We lost because we didn't do all the things I claimed were important or believed. Our candidates should have focused on the areas and issues I thought were critical. Also people did things that I said they shouldn't have. Those other people who didn't win the primary or ran as 3rd party candidates should have done things differently too. This comprehensive evidence shows that my opinions were correct all along and I scold everyone who disagrees.

There! I have now summed up the previous 2 weeks and the next 2 months of DU's 2016 Postmortem.

Vote Report: Northern VA

Arrived 6:45, approx 50 people in line, line moved very quickly. Entire process took 10 minutes. My precinct had 3 optical scanners that our written vote is fed into. I was voter 209 (which means approximately 600 people voted before me.)

The crowd was in a good mood and was made up of about 70% women and minorities. Only 2 obvious Trump supporters (a man and wife wearing camo, clutching the Republican sample ballot, and scowling at everyone). The Democrats usually win 55-65% in my area.

There were 2 official poll watchers (one from each party, sitting quieting behind the check in station).

Outside the girl scouts sold baked goods. There were 3 tables, one staffed with Democrats giving out sample ballots. The second was a Trump table with the Republican sample ballot and no volunteers. The 3rd table was "Republicans for Clinton" It was also un-staffed with copies of the Democratic sample ballot.

My commute took me past 1 other Fairfax County voting area and 2 Fairfax City voting areas. Lots of signs, cars, and people at all stations.

Overall, I observed no problems.

Driving to work today, I passed an intersection outside of GMU w/ 4 Trump supporters* waving signs

asking supporters to honk. Sitting thru 2 cycles of the red light of the busy intersection**, there were zero honks.

* All elderly white women wearing red coats. 3 seemed angry and 1 seemed like she was undergoing rapture.
** Braddock Rd and Rt 123
