The November election in the 23rd congressional district of New York was close, as expected, and the Democrat won, which always is the case, even though pre-election polling had favored the independent candidate. (The 2000 Presidential election in Florida was an exception, but only because the Supreme Court thwarted the Democrat's plan to steal the election. Naturally the Democrats are still mad about this since they have a God-given right to steal all close elections.) In New York there were all sorts of problems with the voting machine, so no one knows who actually got the most votes. Then, as usual, the Democrat election judges had great difficulty in recording votes for the other candidates.(When I was young I used to be a Democrat and was a poll watcher. I noticed that the Democrat Judges had a strange problem with numbers: they transposed them a lot. And the result was always more votes for the Democrat and fewer for the Republican. It was soon suggested that I should find something better to do than be a poll watcher. What was really interesting was that at that time in Texas the Democrat always won, so they were just having fun. It worked out in 1960 when they stuffed the box for John Kennedy. In that case the Angelina County Judge was quoted in the newspaper saying, "I did it, and there's not a damn thing you can do about it.") Here is more discussion about the New York congressional race.
