Hurricane Sandy Could Alter Presidential Election Outcome

Yes, Hurricane Sandy could affect the Philadelphia Eagles’ game plan on Sunday, but it might have one other effect: It could swing the presidential election. ABC News reports, “ reports Hurricane Sandy could prevent some voters who depend on pre-election day openings from casting their ballots in the weeks leading up to November 6. Early voting is allowed in six of the eight swing states.” Politico adds: “Even in states like Pennsylvania, which doesn’t have early voting, what happens if the damage is severe enough to disrupt Election Day itself — or at least dissuade a sizable number of voters from going to the polls? Pennsylvania may not be on the Coast but it harbors some grim tropical memories: Its interior suffered widespread flooding from Hurricane Agnes in 1972, leaving more than 200,000 people homeless.” Maybe God really is trying to determine who wins the presidential election.  [ABC News]
