Suspense to the end, Obama, Romney yield to voters

Citizens turn out to cast their votes at the Palmyra Road United Methodist Church location in Albany.

While Georgia has not received much attention this year, the outcome of Tuesday’s presidential election could show how much Southern Republicans rally around Mitt Romney or whether President Barack Obama matches the enthusiasm he garnered four years ago.

Obama did not win Georgia in 2008 but still took 47 percent of the vote, which was a better-than-normal showing for a Democrat during an election that saw heavy voter turnout. Two years later, the Democrat running for governor captured 43 percent of the vote as Republicans swept statewide elected offices.

Neither candidate has viewed Georgia as a swing state, although both have made stops in the state for fundraisers.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.

No matter which one is elected, we will be complaining within a year because we didn't get exactly what we expected. Whether we voted for them or not.

Both wanted our money and our votes, but neither has given Georgia much, if any attention. They both more or less came, grabbed our money, said vote for me, c-ya bye.

I've given no money towards campaigns this year. Prove yourself to me, then next time I may donate.

Same here, I gave no money to nobody? Hey Shinedownfan, what happened to Sister Ruby? Did they ban her from the site? Hope she hasn't taken ill. We haven't heard from her the past couple of days.

I dunno, on squawk of the day yesterday I asked about her. I miss her, going thru withdrawals as I type this! It takes an hour or two to get my comment printed. I don't think she is banned... I think she is lying low till after today... I hope.

I pray the USA is smart enough to vote Republican in a landslide for President.
