Mathematical analysis the odds of a TIE in the presidential election

http://what-if.xkcd.com

In most states, a popular vote tie is broken by a coin toss or drawing names from a hat. The odds of a many-state tie are slimmer than the odds of the hat being hit by a bale of cocaine dumped from a drug-smuggling airplane. But since it’s Election Day, let’s apply his question to the current contest. What will happen if there's a tie? Math geeks, enjoy.

Sandy's aftermath demonstrates (again) how the use of force helps no one. If the storm demonstrates anything, it's how government force is not the correct response to any situation; especially natural disasters.

Judge strikes down Nevada's 'none' voting option

http://news.yahoo.com

U.S. District Judge Robert Jones said the state's decades-old ballot alternative of "none of the above" was unconstitutional because votes for "none" don't count in the final tallies that determine winners. A federal lawsuit filed in June and bankrolled by the Republican National Committee argued Nevada's unique voter option, which has appeared on every election ballot for statewide races since 1976, disenfranchises voters because it's a perpetual loser. Under state law, even if "none" receives the most votes, it doesn't win.

http://ralphlopez.hubpages.com

As analysis emerges and lawsuits on behalf of the Paul campaign are filed, it is becoming evident that Ron Paul was deprived of many strong showings and likely victories during the primary season, including in New Hampshire, Iowa, and South Carolina. Videos taken by Paulers at state conventions have captured anecdotal evidence of dirty dealing by GOP Romney operatives, such as in Maine. Now mathematicians have shown the existence of systematic and carefully targeted vote counting fraud.
