If you want to know how conservative candidates are doing, I'd recommend:

nationalreview.com -- the "Corner" and "Campaign Spot" blogs are pretty good

hotair.com

My guess is that Huffington Post and DailyKos are going to have the tracking numbers for liberal candidates

Thanks Roy.

Finally, props to everyone that votes and take a second to think about how awesome our peaceful transfer of power process is in the US.

I voted.  Waited an hour in the freezing cold, but I did it.

Now I can go back to ignoring politics for the next 3.9 years.

Hmmm. I've already had a student say she can't come to class this morning (I'm a college professor) because of voting. Thing is, she lives in NJ and transport to and from manhattan is still very tough in the storm's aftermath ... I'll let it slide. :)

Voted a couple weeks back. 

However annoying the political season can be, and whether "your guy/gal" wins or not, the ability to choose their government is a power people mostly lacked for thousands of years, and most people still don't have today.  This is a day worth being proud of regardless of outcome.

Shut up! No way!

But there aren't any mobs of rich white people pointing and laughing at poor people (ie, people who live in households who make less thank 250k annually) out in the streets. Are you sure Romney won?

Honestly Im not sure which has the greater pull for me, the desire for romney to win because i think he would be better than obama, or the desire for romney to win to see my facebook explode and probably shut down entirely

Partly canceled you out:

Cthulhu
Warren

1) Yes
2) Yes
3) Yes

Never had to do so much reading on a ballot in my life. That was a lot of paper.

I was really torn on question number 2.  I honestly didn't know which way i felt so i decided to vote no to keep it the status quo.
