Comments   

We are concerned about a recent drift towards vitriol in the RSN Reader comments section. There is a fine line between moderation and censorship. No one likes a harsh or confrontational forum atmosphere. At the same time everyone wants to be able to express themselves freely. We'll start by encouraging good judgment. If that doesn't work we'll have to ramp up the moderation.

General guidelines: Avoid personal attacks on other forum members; Avoid remarks that are ethnically derogatory; Do not advocate violence, or any illegal activity.

Remember that making the world better begins with responsible action.

- The RSN Team

Scott and all ~

Just saw on MSNBC a video of someone trying to vote for President Obama on a voting machine and the machine electronically changing her/his vote, over-and-over-a gain to Mitt Romney!

The voter complained, they examined the machine, saw that the voter was correct, as they could replicate the problem, and the machine was removed.

This is quite scary and leads me to my greatest fear of the election being rigged in favor of the Republicans, especially Mitt Romney, via these voting machines and many other things.

Hope! And whatever it takes, VOTE for President Obama...make your vote count.

A quick explanation of the Senate totals...67 seats are not being contested today. 37 are held by Republicans and 30 by Democrats.

33 seats are up for grabs this election. 21 were held by Democrats, 10 were held by Republicans, and 2 by independents. Both Independents voted in the Democratic Caucus.

6 of the seats that were held by Democrats are open due to retiring senators. 3 Republicans are retiring and one independent (Joe Lieberman). One Republican, Richard Lugar lost his primary.

This leaves 11 races with no incumbent. 15 races with a Democratic incumbent, 6 with a Republican incumbent, and 1 independent (Bernie Sanders)

Next time do it right. You asked me for poll feedback. When I wrote it, you asked for more info before it went anywhere.

It's fine to build followers, but be upfront about your intent.

@RSN_Godot Philadelphia 19104 No problem - line 5 minutes (usually zero) at 3:30pm, no vote-suppressio n jerks.

This is weird. I was in Target today when a friend told me he had overheard an older woman #1 talking to her helper, another older woman #2. The 'helper" #2 kept pressing that the older woman #1 needed to vote 'straight Republican' even when the older woman #1 kept insisting that she didn't want to vote for King (Iowa) and didn't want to vote for Romney. My friend offered to let the nearby election board rep know that #1 woman wanted another ballot so she could fill it according to #1 woman's wishes. My friend was ignored as woman #2 whisked away the other woman #1. What to do, eh? If that is just ONE instance of obvious illegal activity, what to do?

We may stand corrected but we did not see anyone reach 1% of the popular vote.

I was wrong wrong...Gary Johnson did get 1% the rest did not reach 1%

"VOTER I.D. REQUIRED for future elections" was the first thing that PA. voters encountered in Scott Township today. I was reaching for my wallet when I realized that this was meant to intimidate, for the new 'law' had been suspended ~ and this warning had no business being there ~ since it only assumes that the decision will be reversed. Meanwhile, the dominant headline, "VOTER I.D. REQUIRED" may have turned away eligible citizens.
