Hmm, that's a wonderful idea!

Bob McDonnell has been declared WINNAR, as expected.
I agree completely, though I also think it's important to at least see the general direction of seat gains.I care more for the ballot measures than who wins which seats. The way I see it, seats are always going to be changing hands and each party will do what they can to support their values while in office. It'll all just go back and forth until the end of time.
The ballot measures, however, help me better gauge where the voter's own values are. In particular I'm watching 71 in WA and the Maine same-sex marriage measures because equality is extremely important to me. I also like to know what's going on with my local ballot measures to see what is affecting the state I live in and how it might affect me.
Me either. Best I saw was an update to the Maine article I posted in The Gays thread that shows:I haven't seen much data on the issues however.
I can hardly get excited over it with only 11% reporting in... :-/Early returns showed a close contest, as had been forecast. With 70 of 608 precincts reporting, the gay-marriage side had 53 percent to 47 percent for the other side.
Well, this goes without saying, but I hope that the gay-marriage side comes out with a win on this one. This one could be the first one to have a popular vote side with gay marriage (But I'm sure you knew that already).Me either.
