Rain Favours Republicans

That's what ABC News is saying about election day. Bad news in South Florida, then: it's predicted to be very sunny on November 4.

Whether in the form of rain or snow, precipitation was the major weather issue that kept voters away — the authors found that "cold temperatures do not significantly decrease voter turnout."

According to their research, three presidential Election Days from 1948 to 2000 had well above-average precipitation across the USA: 1972, 1992, and 2000, when rain or snow caused hundreds of thousands of voters to stay home.

You know what? Good. I want the most amount of people to come out to vote. On the contrary, due to what I saw in 2004 at my polling station, this favours the Republicans.

We don't want to win on the cheap.
