Bellwether Vigo County, Ind., narrowly goes for Obama

Could a less-than-1-percent win by President Obama in bellwether Vigo County, Ind., spell defeat for Mitt Romney? It’s early yet, but the news is having a dampening effect. Vigo County’s election results have predicted the election results for more than 50 years.

Well, don’t give up yet. It was close. Really close.

    I’ve hear this about a dozen different places today…”How blah blah goes, so does the nation…” I’ll wait for all the votes, thanks.

      Amen.

      I know nothing about Vigo County, but it’s interesting that Obama’s victory percentage is 15.5 points less than in 2008. That’s got to tell us something.

    I live in Evansville, IN. Vigo includes Terre Haute. It is a very small area with a lot of union jobs. Evansville has a population of 200,000, and it is going Romney. I would not worry about Terre Haute.

    Really, they are going to take a podunk county in Indiana as truth? I live south of Vigo County, there’s little to nothing there. I will also wait for the votes.

    Since we’re loosening up the rules of inference here, could we bring in some astrology tables?

    When the moon is in the seventh house, and jupiter aligns with mars…

    This means nothing. Stop this craziness.
