(CBS News) HOBOKEN, N.J. - New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg Tuesday urged residents in areas ravaged by Sandy to get out: A Nor'easter is headed up the coast and low-lying areas may flood again. That will hamper efforts to restore power to more than 900,000 homes and businesses in the northeast. The death toll rose Tuesday at 121 in nine states. But Sandy could not wipe out Election Day. Nothing would stop Nelly Moreno from voting. Four feet of water swept through her neighborhood last week. Did she ever felt that this was not the year for her to vote? "No. On the contrary, it motivated me to come out," she said. Voters largely undeterred in Sandy-affected areas Voting problems reported in some states Sandy victims' concerns: Voting, housing, power Volunteers scrubbed all weekend to get the polls ready.

  • Aggregate Sentiment is meant to be an indicator of an individual's overall sentiment.
  • The Mean is meant to be an indicator of an individual's average comment sentiment.
  • The Standard Deviation, when there are enough quotes, will indicate an individual's consistency of sentiment (i.e. a Standard Deviation of 0 would mean they were very consistent in their sentiment and 1 would mean they were very inconsistent).

Note that quote stats are likely to be meaningless beyond the aggregate score due to the tiny sample size. However, they are always provided just in case you find something useful there.
