So King is busy digging up ballots as we speak?

If Rossi said something about his supporters needing second amendment remedies, I'd be inclined to be sympathetic, given his history . . .

You people are insanely paranoid. Not only does Washington seem to be slow at counting it's ballots normally, but people also vote by mail there, meaning they are still receiving some ballots in today and maybe even for the next couple days or more. Your ability to assume any close election that Republicans lose, not even elections where this is a even far out-there suspicion let alone a real possibility, is a stolen one, is blowing my mind.

I honestly don't even believe you mean it at this point.

Excuse my rant, but I'm only 17 and I've really never cared about losing a race until now.

It's ok, man. Trust me one gets used to it. Wink

300,000 dug up ballots, to be exact!

Sour grapes is a terrible thing.  Perhaps Rossi might have done better if he spent more time studying the issues.  Then he would not have flubbed his answer about Boeing's tanker contract in front of the Tacoma News Tribune editorial board, a basic WA Politics 101 question any fool should be able to answer.  Or shown his ignorance about Net Neutrality in front of the Seattle Times editorial board.  Murray knew what Net Neutrality was.   Click on the link and watch the 2:17 minute clip entitled "Net Neutrality."

http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/flatpages/local/politics/editorialinterviewssenate2010.html

Quote
Seattle Times:  Do you understand what Net Neutrality is?

Rossi:  I've read about it.

Seattle Times:  Is it fair to say you don't?  

Rossi:  "I haven't fully examined it all.  But the idea that people would control would make me nervous, especially if the federal government were involved."


lol.  From the Seattle Times endorsement of Patty Murray:

Quote
On almost every topic, Murray is studied and has an answer. On the issue of net neutrality, which involves unfettered access to the Internet, Rossi did not have a clue, even though this issue is pressing within the tech industry.
http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/editorials/2013112273_edit10murray.html

Fortunately, voters in King County understood who the superior candidate was in this race.

I just got an email today saying the Republicans took control of both the NC House and Senate for the first time since Reconstruction. Not bad.

You're not allowed to suggest that Republicans lost a race because they knew nothing about issues and the Democrat was smarter and more informed than them even if it's true, Ogre Mage. Apparently it makes you a hack.

Yes, also keep in mind that Murray is one of the dumbest Senators (some blue avatars on here said it so it must be true), so there's no way she could be so studied on the issues. If Rossi doesn't win this race by more than 2%, it was stolen.

Too early for a rough estimate of national popular vote? I rather doubt it's the R+15 crap that gallup was shovelling.

Nate Silver said it was about R+6.7 when he wrote that blog post Wednesday morning. It's probably shrunk a little as California has continued to come in (Dem's national margin always goes up a bit as California and provisional ballots in states around the country are counted). Obviously Rasmussen and Gallup were huge outliers.

Colorado has now been called for Bennett.

Yeah, and Murray is increasing her lead in Washington with 71% reporting.

Don't worry, if you're a Crist supporter your opinion will swing wildly in the opposite direction pretty soon. Wink

But what I basically am saying is I don't think Crist is done politically, nationally most likely, but I could really see him running for Congress (FL-10) if Bill Young retires or for St.Pete Mayor (next election is in 2013).

That's probably the best he could do for a while. His name is badly tainted at this point.

cnn exit poll FL : Rubio wins 55 % of latinos (12 % of the voters).

Meek wins 76 % of the blacks voters (11 % of the voters).

And of course the actual numbers proved Crist had a chance.  Great job Meek.Tongue

 . . . assuming the same turnout and that at least 98 percent of the combined Crist + Meek voters would have still voted for Crist.

Rubio probably would have won bigger. He really massacred the opposition on the county map, way better then Martinez did.

Arizona GOP should really make Grijalva safer in future by plucking away more of Tucson from Arizona 8th and making that seat more Republican.

    I am ever so slightly amused by the Democrats pulling out every close race & retaining a majority of U.S. House seats in North Carolina of all places.

NC is the craziest Democrat-drawn gerrymander in the country. The state legislature is GOP now, so that advantage quite possibly wont last long.

Eastern North Carolina is f-ed up because they divide the whites and blacks each into their own district and the squiggly line out west is likewise a black-majority district. Those aren't going away because of the federal government has to approve our districts that create two majority-minority districts.

I looked at Centre County, and percent turnout was down. 

http://www.centredaily.com/2010/11/04/2316455/county-shifts-toward-gop.html

The county, which is the home of Penn State, became Democratic in registration in 2008.  Toomey carried it by 51.6 to Sestak's 48.2.

http://www.co.centre.pa.us/elections/results/results.asp?FolderName=2010_general_election&FileName=2010_general_accumulated_results

This might be a collapse in Democratic turnout across the rest of the state, possibly coupled by an increase in Republican turnout.  Democratic turnout, especially black Democratic turnout, was up in Philadelphia.

Ah, yeah I forgot about that. There's still an argument to be made for giving more of Tucson to Grijalva based on the population explosion north of the city, which falls in AZ-08. Of course, the new district will have to be created somewhere too. It's a state to keep an eye on.

Bennet won this election by about 1% against an awful opponent....and even if that weren't the case, you can NEVER say a person has a seat for as long as he wants in Colorado.

There is reasonably strong evidence after 2006-10 that Colorado has become a left-leaning state in general.  It's very different from VA or FL or OH, which all voted for Obama then had a pronounced swing back to the GOP.  There was no swing back in CO, indicating that the state as a whole has shifted left over the past 4 years. I think that is what this guy is getting at.  It's very premature to say that Bennet has the seat for life, but it's pretty logical to say that the Dems here have a better than 50% chance in any major CO race for the forseeable future.  I mean Hickenlooper broke 50% against two opponents for goodness sake!

Given Colorado's history of swinging among parties and the fact that Bennet is not a personal institution, it's not a statement one can support.
