Dept. of Temporarily Inspiring Poll Results

Well, this looks heartening:

That box appeared in the Round Rock Leader of Round Rock, Texas. Sadly, Jim Romenesko reports that the results as pictured are a mistake. "Usually we just have a yes or not question and we forgot to plug in the names," the editor explained to him. In fact, Romney came out ahead.

    Looks like poll had all 37 HnR commenters vote in it.

    Or this guy voted 37 times.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    That just means everyone would be caught off guard because no one expected the election today. Where the hell is my polling place?

  • Pro Libertate||

    What we need is an accident like this to happen across the country. Think the major parties would allow a Green or LP candidate win to stand?

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    It would be just like the Paul campaign to set up some kind of a guerilla election.

    No one expects the premature election! Their chief weapon is surprise, surprise and fear. Their TWO chief weapons are surprise, fear, and ruthless inefficiency. Their THREE chief weapons are surprise, fear, ruthless inefficiency, and a fanatical devotion to statism. Amongst their four weapons are...I'll hold the election again.

  • The Renegade||

    And nice Red/Blue uniforms.

  • Pro Libertate||

    No, Blue/Red!

    "Now a question of etiquette. As I exit my seat do I give you the ass or the crotch?"

  • Ska||

    That might be my favorite part of that entire movie.
