RUSH: Here's Sandra in Long Island. Great to have you on the EIB Network. Hi.
CALLER: Hey, Rush. Mega dittos from deep in enemy territory.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: Thanks for getting us through some dark times, although I do believe soon things will be brighter. Hey, I was thinking, here in Long Island we're out of power. It probably won't be on Tuesday for voting, but wouldn't it be funny if it stays off and we could keep the liberals away, they won't be able to vote.
RUSH: Well, people have run some calculations on this. As you know, they're gonna be using, what's it, military trucks as mobile polling places in some parts of the region. But I saw the story this morning that it's not gonna affect the Electoral College, but it's something like Obama could lose three or four hundred thousand votes from the national total because of people who won't be able to vote on Tuesday because of this mess.
CALLER: I was hoping my namesake hurricane would turn this state red, but, you know, you never know.
RUSH: Were you actually hoping for that?
CALLER: (laughing) Hey, why not?
RUSH: I would. I'll take it. Don't misunderstand. I wish I could remember where I saw the estimate, but there are three or four hundred thousand votes that Obama won't get, which is not gonna affect the electoral votes out of New York at all, but it will affect the national total and the percentage, to a certain extent, depending on what the overall popular vote is.
