It All Comes Down To This

All the campaigning, money, and time comes down to these final 12 or so hours when polls close at 7 p.m. tonight. We’ll be here with an election night live-blog starting around 6:30, but we’ll report on election happenings such as turnout, shenanigans or anything else that comes up. And check us out on Twitter for even more news as it happens.

One question we need to look at is what kind of role will weather play in turnout. For obvious reasons, the worse the weather, the lower the turnout. It is supposed to rain pretty much all day in Jackson and in the Delta. Same with Southaven. Tupelo is expecting rain later in the day. Rain is also expected to start shortly in Hattiesburg and a little after that on the Coast. Conclusion: wherever you are in the state expect some bad weather.

If you’re looking for the most recent polling information from MS-01 and MS-04, here you go:

Steven Palazzo internals show him leading Gene Taylor 43-41 (10/20/2010)

The Hill sponsored poll puts Alan Nunnelee on top of Travis Childers 44-39 (10/19/2010)

Predictions if you have them…

    Nunnelee, Thompson, Harper and Taylor (I think).

    R’s easily win the House, and Gene Taylor changes parties (that’s my way out there prediction).

    R’s come up short in the Senate. I’m thinking it will be either 51 or 52 D’s vs 48 or 49 R’s.

    We, the people of the GOP, DO NOT WANT TAYLOR IN OUR PARTY. HE IS SERIOUSLY FLAWED IN MORE WAYS THAN WE HAVE TIME FOR HERE.
    But, my prediction is that even if he manges to squeak by this election he is still a goner…this is his last gasp….fine’. He has no power, will have even less after his declaration that he voted AGAINST HIS OWN PARTY IN VOTING FOR MCCAIN FOR PRESIDENT. Neither fish or fowl, he needs to go to roost somewhere other than on the tax payers back.

    Nunnelee by at least 5.

    Some other races I’m concerned with-

    I’m thinking Angle is gonna knock off Reid, Bill Marcy is gonna hold Thompson to about 55%, Marco Rubio wins more than 50% and officially becomes the GOP’s new rock star and the Republicans have a huge day with the governors races and Haley comes out smelling like a rose.

    Taylor may change parties all right, but I don’t think it will be from his Congressional seat. I think (and really hope) Palazzo will squeak by with this one.

    I figure Nunnelee will win, definitely Harper, and the weather may give Marcy a boost, but he’s still a longshot (we can always pray for a miracle up there, though – we all know stranger things have happened).

    By the way, all those voting for Republicans vote today from 7 am to 7 pm, and all those voting for Democrats are to vote tomorrow, same hours ;)

    A couple more fun predictions-

    MSNBC will cut out of live coverage around 9 and cut to infomercials.

    The over/ under on the number of times TV folks tell us this is not a referndum on Obama is 1,000. Cries of racism will start around 8:30.

    Democrats will declare victory because they won in Delaware.

    I believe that Nunnelee will win by at least 4 tonight, Taylor(I hope that I am wrong about Taylor!!) will win in a close election that will not be conceded tonight. Thompson wins his smallest victory yet, and Harper wins by a landslide.

    Any word on turnout so far?

      Turnout is big in Lee County (my county) and I hear turnout is big on the Coast (where I am from). In Lee County they ran out of electronic ballots at several polling placed. Voters had to vote by hand on copies.

    Party hacks make interesting and cooperative bedfellows. Mama used to say I should think about baseball during those tense moments. When I look at Haley all I can say is back field in motion.-Richard Tisei
