    You'd never see a room full of people cheering like that for David Cameron. Or the ticker tape for that matter.

    Not necessarily a bad thing though. American elections and presidents do have something of a cult of personality around them.

    Disappointing. No zombie apocalypse. :(

    Because we're not naive enough to believe it makes much difference which wanker is the figurehead.

    Are these polls by the same people who said it would be neck and neck?

    Exit polls are generally more accurate though aren't they?

    Also - 39% of white voters, not white Americans in general.

    Interesting article from a conservative explaining why Fox News and right wing pollsters got their election predictions so wrong.

    So, as it looks like Mitt won the 'popular vote', does this mean AV supporters think Mitt should be US president considering more voters voted for him rather than Obama?

    By no means over yet, and he may well indeed end up winning ahead of Romney, but if Romney wins the popular vote, do AV supporters feel that he should be president?

    It seems like as George W lost the popular vote as well it won't affect Obama too much if he does lose it. Of course it will go down very well with the likes of Fox news but they are just preaching to the converted anyway.

    @Feanor That makes sense. You can see with a lot of tea party types they find it difficult to conceive that not everyone agrees with them. They would seem very susceptible to confirmation bias.

    AV still uses districts, doesn't it? I think you're thinking of PR there.

    Not even LetsGo himself knows what he's thinking when it comes to political threads.

    I'd just stick to obituaries.

    CNN still have him ahead by 2.4 million though...Not a small number...

    In any case if the popular vote decided who would be president there's no way they would have battled it out so much in the swing states so the numbers would be different...

    Though in principle I agree that the popular vote should trump all...

    What's AV stand for?

    CNN were saying that in order to get a ticket for that event you had to be a Chicago Obama campaign worker who had voluntarily done two canvassing trips off your own back in one of the swing states.

    It was hardly the spontaneous celebration some of the news outlets have been making it out to be.

    Alternative Vote: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Instant-runoff_voting

    Basically the same system we use for EMPs.

    Edit: In the UK anyway.

    It's easy to target me and ignore the question of alternative voting systems, it was a genuine question. I assumed replies would be like that, as a lot of people only want voting reforms 'when it suits their views'.

    @AcidSnake I tend to stay clear my American sites as they all have their own motives, let's see what the final result shows, hopefully a Obama win!
