    Because far fewer people vote in special elections, they're always at least partly about turnout. Although without exit polls we cannot say precisely who voted or for whom, the Republicans took advantage of a strong environment for them while an early look suggests plenty of Democrats' regular voters seem to have stayed home, as Weprin failed to take advantage of a substantial numerical registration edge.

    I know there are no exit polls. That's why Conservative refuses to respond to my query, because he knows it too. Now I'm just shining a spotlight on his pathological lying.

    This was a special election which always have low turnouts and presidential elections always have the largest.

    You're comparing voter turnout between a presidential election and an off year special election?

    Seriously???



    Still, no Democrat has ever held that seat. What a shocker it was won by a Republican.

    Here, speaking of special elections ... check this out ... from November, 2009 ...


    Democrat wins hard-fought N.Y. House special election

    Democrat Bill Owens took a surprising victory in a special election Tuesday in Upstate New York, winning a House seat that Republicans had controlled since 1872 and, in the process, potentially deepening a split that emerged within the GOP during the campaign.
    A Democrat takes a House seat held by Republicans for 139 years in 2009 ... what happened to Democrats in the House the following year?

    You righties are making the same mistake the left made when they tried reading into Bill Owens' unexpected win in 2009.

    I don't think so, but we will see won't we...My guess is that once Obama looses in 12 you, and so many other antagonists will disappear into the night like you were never here, either that or the whining, excuse making, fraud charging true self will appear....It oughta be a real hoot.

    We will see, however I must caution that you shouldn't count your chickens before they're hatched as the old saying goes. Despite the economy, President Obama has a lot going for him. Millions of voters out there know they lost their jobs in the shadow of the Great Bush Recession of 2008.

    Notice that you never mention the Obama record, wonder why that is? Everything is blamed on Bush and we are 2 1/2 years later and of course Obama wasn't in the Congress that helped create that recession, right? Are you telling us that Bush had such control over the economy that he created the recession without the help of Obama and the Democrat controlled Congress? Seems the people of NY 9 disagree with you as do the majority in the country now that give Obama such low JAR.

    So you are making the bold prediction that if Obama loses, liberals here will completely disappear ..........

    ..... or they will not.

    I think you covered all the possibilities.

    Liberals won't disappear but instead will do what they always do when losing elections, protest and get violent. Obama is building a dependent class that isn't going to like the outcome of the next election and people like you will be right there to cheer them on.
