What happens if Romney/Ryan win despite pre-Election polling showing them losing

and there are widespread reports of voter suppression/disenfranchisement? Will it be contested? If so, how? FWIW I'm not convinced that it will be close (though IMHO it will be closer than in 2008) and the polls are trending for President Obama but there's still time on the clock for a "game changer" (though I don't know what that might be).

3. I actually think we are getting into blowout/wave election territory.

Usually one candidate does not open big leads in so many battleground states this early.

4. We can just thank the Diebold descendent voting machines.

 

I've STILL never gotten an answer to a simple question: If every fucking point of sale machine in the country can produce a paper receipt, why can't voting machines do it? On on a continuous roll inside, one the voter gets - with matching serial numbers.
