Yes I am a registered Democrat, I just finished voting. Just because I'm registered Democrat doesn't mean I always vote that way. I think I like Ron Paul.

If NOA (none of the above) was running I'd predict landslide victory in November.

Well I may have been much closer with my prediction overall than the results show, reading a few articles over the last few days I came across some interesting facts. Besides Philly and the burbs Clinton had a 70% advantage througout much of the state which was what I predicted. Another interesting report i came across was the mention that many Republicans and independents switched their party affiliation so they could vote in the Democratic Primary. An exit poll showed that 1 in 5 of the people voting for Obama were from this group.

Read another interesting fact in the paper this morning, no presidential candidate elected to office has lost Pennsylvania since Harry Truman .

The Dems better make their minds up if they expect to win the presidential election.

Being from a small town in Pa. (Linesville) & actually thats the closest post office, I really didn`t take offense to Obama`s comments. I just took it as most people around here use the churches & gun clubs and such for much more. They are the social networks you go to for information and help. We know the federal gov. won`t do much but tax. People here tend to help one another through the churches. For home protection we count on our gun`s, if I need back-up I can depend on my neighbors. Even the local widows have and know how to use guns, I can`t even guess as to how long it would take a cop to get here. So I guess you could say I am a bit bitter about Washington. Something has to change. I don`t know if Obamas the one that can do it but I think he holds the best shot. I guess time will tell.
