Does the PVT Work for Elections????

Specializes in Peds, Med-Surg, Disaster Nsg, Parish Nsg.

I will be so glad when this election is over, and I know I am not alone. There is no perfect candidate...never was and probably never will be. But this one has been especially interesting.....not interesting in a good way.

I voted. I did my American duty. I even have a sticker to prove it..should anyone ask.

Even though the election is over.....well all the mud-slinging......now we are all glued to the TV to see how this movie will end. I mean....really...with all the high-powered drama, this does seem like a soap opera....or a horror movie.....or maybe even sci-fi. Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse.....it did...time and time again.

Many people tried to justify why to vote for one candidate over the other. Or was it....who is the lesser of the two evils?

So here I sit listening to all the talking heads with their projections and analysis of what is happening and who voted for who and why. It is amazing that some many people turned out to vote. That is good...but it means a lot of people will be disappointed, whoever wins. I hope and pray that the country can come together and wise decisions will be made.

It feels like we've been in a marathon with this long and dirty race. And it looks like it will be a very long night before the winner is announced.

I don't know if I can stay up to wait. Does the PVT work for elections????

Okay, I laughed way too hard at your title. And then I wanted to share it with my husband, but realized he wouldn't get it.

I tried it, but did I get the good or bad pop up?

I thought we needed some comic relief.....since all we can do now is wait. No PVT......

:arghh: It took my $200!!!! I think that was the bad pop up!

Did we get the Good or the Bad pop-up? Only time will tell where this leads. We will have to wait 4 years for a re-take....so we need to make the best of what we have.

Like I said....there were no perfect candidates on this ballot.

Hillary won the popular vote, but lost the electoral college.

Using the PVT would have been just as accurate as the polls.

Most of the polls were waaayy off target..

Yes, I'm currently nursing a deep burning hatred for Nate Silver, who wooed me into complacency.

Wasn't just him. At least he predicted only a 71.4% possibility of a Hillary win. I wasn't feeling that confident about that.

Huffington post predicted a 98% probability of a HRC win. They ran a computer simulation with 10 million possible outcomes, and they got it totally wrong.

Computers aren't so smart. :bag:

I'm going with bad. I'm in shock.

I don't think there will be a re-take in 4 years. All the things conspiracy theorists accused Obama of wanting to do, such as implementing martial law and cancelling the election in 2012 and this year, will be carried out by their man.

I am afraid many people will end up fleeing north of the border with nothing but the clothes on their backs, if they're not placed in FEMA camps. Dear God, I wish I had applied for a work permit in 2011, when my mother encouraged me to do so. Canada will not want to take in an influx of Americans. They'll treat us like we treat Mexicans and Central Americans who cross the border.

But...in a HuffPost article written by the famed filmmaker Michael Moore back in July 2016, he accurately predicted that Donald Trump would win this presidential election. His article is interesting. The link is below.

At least he's still in touch with people in the heartland, like the people in his home town of Flint. The Democratic party was sorely out of touch, and all of us, including the people who voted for him, will pay for it. Might as well stick a fork in America, he can't reverse the damage done starting in the 1980s with offshoring.

Took my 88yo father to vote yesterday " for the girl" as he couldn't believe Trump was running. He asked what were all the signs for along the road and entrance to voting location. Poll workers and town councilman all recognized him and thanked him for voting. Upon getting back in the car, he asked me what was that all about. Ravages of vascular dementia, will be the last time he voted.

DH went to bed at 2AM, I staid up watching race as on vacation. When I got up for dental appointment, DH asked if he had a bad dream or did Trump really win the electoral college? 2017 will be a rocky year for healthcare.
