To keep this post topical, I'll start with a link to this week's Real Estate Weekly. The news has been slow lately, but my colleague Chip Cutter still managed to dig up some good nuggets. The real news today, of course, is the election. So let's see who Property Lines readers support and test out a few polls. (Updates: You have to vote to see the results since the "show results" button isn't working.)



See the results mapped by location here.

  • Where's the None of the above choice for Governor?

    First time I've not voted straight ticket, it was this governor's race. Did a pointless write-in instead.
  • I believe Andy Horning was running on the none of the above ticket. :-)
  • I just honestly don't understand how anyone could seriously vote for Jill Long Thompson. Anyone who does is either ignorant of facts/issues, a total Democrat shill or got beat up by little Mitchie in the 3rd grade and still carrying a grudge.
  • Vote blue baby!

    Obama/Biden for REAL change :-)
  • I must be from Florida. I actually clicked on the wrong party. Whoops! What's your margin of error Cory?
  • Why are there only two choices for president?
  • what happened to Bob Barr?
  • I voted for Bob Barr.
  • I am ready for this election to be over with, for the past several months I have been bashed, ridiculed (sp?), and fround upon for my views (even though they are not radical, but mainstream-middle of the road). Reupblicians see me as a hard core democrat, Democrats have seen me as a hard-core republician. Those assumptions are way off. I have been middle of the road this whole time and deciding canididates one by one who would be better for the job.

    I just hope that who ever gets ellected, He/She/They realize that partisian Politics will never work (even if their whole party gets enough to have “run away politics”). A divided Nation can not stand on its own. We all must come together and realize that we are not different from one-another. We all want the same thing, the difference is on HOW are we going to go about doing things. Lets give and take a little here and share ideas and keep an open mind.
  • I voted for Obama! And, if I were still living as a resident in Indiana, I would have voted for Daniels for Governor. Currently a resident of Los Angeles, CA, I also voted today AGAINST Prop 8 which would amend this states constitution to define marriage as only between a man and a woman (this, after well over 16,000 committed gay and lesbian couples in California have been LEGALLY wed since July of THIS year). If you know anyone living in California who has yet to vote, remind them to vote AGAINST hate and discrimination and to vote NO on 8.
  • I voted for Bob Barr!
  • LOL. I voted for all the winners.

    BO wins Marion County HUGE. I'm guessing 35k to 40k votes easy.

    I can also guarantee you that the Rs are causing huge problems with Challenges on early/absentee ballots. You will be up late to get full results.


    Ill tell you folks something about this governor's race. From the D/T and NSide view, Mitch is walking away with this election, but you step outside his safety zone, and there is alot of hostility @ Mitch. What I predict to be the surprise of the night is JLT with 5 points easy of Mitch, and quite possibly upsetting him.

    The other 2 races to watch are Mary Ann Sullivan/Elroy Elrod and John Barnes vs. What's his name. Both parties put alot of money into both of those races.

    And what is probably going to be THE closest race will be Zoeller vs. linda Pence. Little knbow fact is that Linda got nearly 400k from the Natl Assn of Demo AGs in the last 5 weeks. I predict she wins.

    The Dems win big in Marion county, Campo is embarrassed beyond the pale, and Joven goes back to whever he came from.

    I'll check in in the morning to see how close i came, but I'll be with the winners tonight @ The Marriot. :lol:


    overall, it is fantastic to see so many so passionate about this year's election. I've been to over 100 precincts today, and it was beautiful. :D
  • Money ain't votes: Pence loses.

    Money wouldn't matter: JLT loses. Mitch's safety zone is way bigger than DT and NSide. Reagan Democrats vote for Mitch. BO ticket splitters vote for Mitch. Jill's appeal doesn't get much beyond Ft. Wayne.

    Money wouldn't matter, part deux: Carson wins. No matter what. Forever. R's have conceded this seat since Jacobs retired and Julia won the first time.

    Change is good...first time in 32 years we don't have to look at Bush or Clinton on a ballot. About time. If we're lucky, we'll never see either name again except in the photo captions from overseas funerals for former presidents of Brzrkistan and Slobovia.
  • Care to place a cyber beer bet on JLT within 5 points?

    And I'll take Pence even steven.
  • I enjoy when people who are against gay marriage are labeled as hateful. That's so tolerant.
  • Damn. good thing those bets didn;t take. :lol:
  • I won't gloat much. I'd say Mitch has a mandate for government change, and perhaps our experience with him made Hoosiers comfortable enough with Obama's message of change to split our tickets. That was part of it for me...that, and losing my health insurance.

    Now that we've gotten rid of the township assessors, it's time to get rid of the township trustees and the boards.

    While we're at it, we need to replace the county commissioners and the lesser county row offices with a single elected county executive, with a clerk and an auditor for checks and balances. No more elected sheriffs, treasurers, coroners, surveyors; all those positions need trained professionals and not elected hacks. We don't elect fire chiefs or sewer-plant managers...
  • Marriage is God's business - he set it up - don't mess with it. Find an alternative like civil unions. Leave marriage alone. And having this opinion is NOT hateful. It is honoring God's tradition.
  • Well, I suspect you are correct Mr. TMutt, but I can tell you that the Ds and unions will fight it all the way. I think it will be THE topic for 09.
  • Idyllic, I didn't label any PERSON, I labeled a message....
  • Da Hooey, at least we'll have the conversation...and it will be very hard for Indiana Democrats to argue against a change agenda since the people of Indiana voted for both a R and a D carrying that message.

    However, I have no doubt Speaker Bauer is already limbering up for the necessary contortions.
  • Saw Bauer on TV tonight and he sure has packed on the LBS. :lol: Ds will fight for the right to vote for as many people as possible, and I somewhat see the point too. Tooo much power in one persons hand is dangerous. like the Assessors offices dealy. You really think there will be any savings in this? Uh no. You just consolidated all the power into one office instead of 9.


    We like Twnshp schools why not other offices located at the twnshp level?

    I like knowing my local elected officials (except Mayor Dullard).

  1. With Pence running the ship good luck with a new government building on the site. He does everything on the cheap except unnecessary roads line a new beltway( like we need that). Things like state of the art office buildings and light rail will never be seen as an asset to these types. They don't get that these are the things that help a city prosper.

  2. Does the $100,000,000,000 include salaries for members of Congress?

  3. "But that doesn't change how the piece plays to most of the people who will see it." If it stands out so little during the day as you seem to suggest maybe most of the people who actually see it will be those present when it is dark enough to experience its full effects.

  4. That's the mentality of most retail marketers. In this case Leo was asked to build the brand. HHG then had a bad sales quarter and rather than stay the course, now want to go back to the schlock that Zimmerman provides (at a considerable cut in price.) And while HHG salesmen are, by far, the pushiest salesmen I have ever experienced, I believe they are NOT paid on commission. But that doesn't mean they aren't trained to be aggressive.

  5. The reason HHG's sales team hits you from the moment you walk through the door is the same reason car salesmen do the same thing: Commission. HHG's folks are paid by commission they and need to hit sales targets or get cut, while BB does not. The sales figures are aggressive, so turnover rate is high. Electronics are the largest commission earners along with non-needed warranties, service plans etc, known in the industry as 'cheese'. The wholesale base price is listed on the cryptic price tag in the string of numbers near the bar code. Know how to decipher it and you get things at cost, with little to no commission to the sales persons. Whether or not this is fair, is more of a moral question than a financial one.
