Wild Life Of A Little Monster

Others are scared of me because of all the fun I have. Considered a vigilante by my Eponine.

Election Guide

Found a super cool election guide on The New York Times site. Check it out if you have a moment.

Here's a link to overall results. Select a state for more details about its results. This is a link directly to Missouri's. Scroll down to view an interactive map. You can mouse over individual counties to see results.

I find it fascinating to see the local results. Hillary Clinton won the entire state except for five counties. The most populous ones, for the most part. Jackson (Kansas City proper), St. Louis County, Boone and Cole (center of the state around University of Missouri), and Nodaway (northwest corner, where Northwest Missouri State is located). At the bottom of the page is a link to an article about Missouri's "bellwether" status. The state has selected the presdidential winner 25 out of the last 26 elections.

William's mom commented in a prior post how excited she was in New Mexico. According to this handy-dandy election guide, Barack is leading Hillary there by four-tenths of a percent.

If you hop around The Times site a bunch you will be prompted to register.

With the late-night snow and election-results watching, instead of working I sure could "nod away" with a little nap during this snowy and cold winter day.

I found it really interesting last night to see that Hillary was winning all but 5 counties in Missouri. Any way you look at it, history will be made at the Democratic convention this year. And it's a GOOD kind of history for once. What an exciting time we live in! - Mary

I don't think Barack was ever ahead of Hillary here...the margin is slim but the NYT was incorrect. We gave up at about 10 p.m. when only 3% of the precincts were reporting, but at 98% today she's still got a lead. That might change--there's 16,800 provisional ballots to count still. (We had a whole lot more voters than expected!)

I'm sure The Times was wrong, but that is what I saw about midnight or so Tuesday night! He was ahead like by 71 votes!
