Burgess is not running for re-election btw.

He's a great moderating voice on the council and is a reliable pro-density vote, which makes up for some of his less than great stances on lets say the tunnel and panhandling.

I don't really know any of the other candidates other than Jon Grant, who I dislike greatly.

I wonder what the swing was in Medina, Yarrow Point, Hunts Point, Clyde Hill, Woodway, and Union/Novelty Hill, WA.

I've always thought DelBene would follow Cantwell, except that she's 55, to Cantwell's 58.
Which is probably too old, considering Murray will likely run again in 2022, and I imagine so will Cantwell in 2024.

Bold Prediction: Bob Ferguson will be Washington's next governor.

Still think Dow is likelier, IMO. Ferguson would clear the field if, say, Cantwell or Murray ever hung it up

I agree. But I also really want to see Dow elected, so I may be biased.

There's also Derek Kilmer who I think will end up in the Senate eventually.

Honestly, what he does is just for power. By becoming that decisive vote, he's been able to have way more influence since, what 2010, than if he was some D-caucusing member.

Though that's going to end in 2018, I think. With both better than 50% odds of picking up Hill's vacant seat and Miloscia's. Does Sheldon switch parties?

That would be an incredibly short amount of time in Congress for Jayapal. Tongue If that were to happen, maybe Walkinshaw would give it another go.

100% both McDermott and Walkinshaw would battle it out. Maybe Sawant too?

So, does Denise Juneau run again? Apparently she's being considered for UM's top executive job.
8  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Washington '15: The Calm Before the Drizzle on: December 12, 2016, 07:51:46 pm
Rebecca Saldaņa chosen to replace Jayapal in the LD37. I believe she works for the Puget Sound Sage and comes from a similar background as Jayapal, social activism (environmental/equity vs. immigration).

She'll face fierce competition come the special/election time.

Ugh, I hope not. I'm no big fan of McMorris-Rodgers, but she was always competent. I don't like Baumgartner. If he doesn't run, does Parker?

Pakootas again for the Ds?
10  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: In which major city did Hillary receive the highest % of white voters? on: December 07, 2016, 11:54:07 am
Probably San Francisco

Definitely not, Seattle is more white and gave Clinton a larger margin (a first!).

I think it's between Seattle (~88-8.44) and DC.

Dino Rossi has been appointed to serve out the rest of Hill's term. However he is explicitly not running for reelection in 2018.

I believe the special is in 2017, though I may be wrong.

Either way, I rate it Lean D pending the candidates

You are right- it is in 2017. The Ds should gain control of the Senate then. It'll be (23+1) - 25?

RI, amazing maps!

I had been working for a long time on a mega-gerrymander with tons of snake-like states, and, just when I had Hillary down to the mid-40s (confined entirely to parts of the SF Bay Area, LA County, and NYC), I accidentally hit the "see how arbitrary our system is link instead of the move button!  Now, it's all gone!

Something like this?:

I am a monster. 493-45

Now that the count is final, my Seattle precincts:

Clinton: 341 (87.2%)
Trump: 37 (9.5%)
Johnson: 10 (2.6%)
Stein: 3 (.7%)

Voter turnout was very good, returned ballots: 402/425.

and my other one:

Clinton: 349 (91.4%)  LOL 95.9-4.1, in the two-way
Stein: 15 (3.9%)
Trump: 8 (2.1%)
Johnson: 7 (1.8%)
Castle: 2 (.5%)
La Riva: 1 (.3%)

Turnout is typical of a university area with a high turnover of addresses. 399/548.

It looks like that CD precinct that initially cast no votes for Trump now has him with 1 vote. That's his worst in the city.
15  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Washington '15: The Calm Before the Drizzle on: December 01, 2016, 02:50:11 pm
Bruce Dammeier won 52-48 or so. I was rooting for Talbert. :/

That's too bad. I bet he'll be GOP nominee in '20. It's his potential appointments to the ST Board that should be the concern (and why I supported Tolbert)

Agreed. Also, what's with the color change?

Alcon, RI, or anyone else, can you make a swing map of Skagit? I think it would look interesting.

Also RI, awesome map. Did Clinton even win Longview?

18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Single Most shocking county result? on: November 22, 2016, 10:11:26 pm
I'm still shocked that Elliott County swung as hard as it did. 70-26 R from 49-47 D.

Also Trumbull County, OH. Went from 60.5-37.5 D to 51-44 R. Or for that matter, Mahoning and Lackawanna counties. I expected swings to Trump, but it's still shocking to see how huge they were.
19  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Washington '15: The Calm Before the Drizzle on: November 21, 2016, 11:41:25 pm
Also, for the first time since the 1920s (?) Pacific and Grays Harbor counties voted R for governor. It's actually pretty amazing how Trump was able to drag generic R up in Southwest WA, particularly in Wahkiakum and Cowlitz.

With just 22k votes left to count in the state, I think it's safe to say that there's no change in the house (+2 Ds in LD30, +1 R in LD31, +1 R in LD19) and +1 D in the senate (LD41).

21  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How did your precinct vote? on: November 18, 2016, 02:44:18 am
My registered address is in very white, increasingly very wealthy part of northeast Seattle:

Clinton: 236 (88.7%)
Trump: 24 (9.0%)
Johnson: 5 (1.9%)
Stein: 1 (.4%)
Write-in: 2
Blank: 2

total ballots returned so far: 270, though President would be out of 266. This precinct was 81.5-17.5 for Obama in 2008. Murray "only" got 84% and Inslee 81%. Walkinshaw got 52.8%.

Ha, I used to live right down the street from you on the other side of 65th.  Nice area, super boring.

Mine was 80-14, a big swing from 77-22 in 2012.

Edit: Also, just FYI for people looking at King County numbers, the ones posted are just from Election Night.  Turnout was fine!

Yeah, boring is right, although a nice place to grow up. Surprised we voted to the left of Crumpet's Ballard precinct though.

Where I live in the University District, Trump tied in 3rd lol:

Clinton: 158 (91.9%)
Johnson: 5 (2.9%)
Trump: 4 / Stein: 4 (2.3 % / 2.3%)
La Riva: 1 (.6%)
Write-in: 2
Blank: 4

Total: 178 counted so far, vote out of 172.

Where did you find this data?

You need to know your precinct number/code, but you enter it in here: https://electionsdata.kingcounty.gov/Government/Nov-2016-Election-night-abstract-by-precinct/kk5t-cjez and scroll all the way down as Pres/Senate are at the bottom.

If you don't know your precinct, you can here: http://www.kingcounty.gov/depts/elections/elections/maps/find-my-districts.aspx

I agree, but that's their only bench. Though I guess Hill was non-political before he ran.

Are there any precincts in Seattle with 0 votes for Trump? Probably not, but I wonder...

I think the only person the Rs could run and win with is King County Council member Kathy Lambert. I have no idea if she would want to, considering she left the state house for her current position.
