I hope MT and VA will be called any time soon, then I would have nailed it in my prediction :-)prediction Map

Well, Mark you won't be the only one.

I predict that we will have a final outcome in Montana before one in Virginia (Montana seems to be quicker with it's recount than Virginia is). I predict it will still be a squeeker, but as the recount continues Tester, D. keeps increasing his lead. I think sometime this afternoon Burns, R. will reluctantly concede and then go off an take a nap. -:) Hopefully someone will give Burns some milk and cookies before hand. (And hopefully he will get treatment for his snoring. -:))

As far as Virginia the original count is actually not done, yet. The last I checked there are two areas still outstanding on the counting of the votes (latest according to the Virginia state Elections Board):

ISLE OF WIGHT county (92.3% of the precincts counted) where Allen is ahead by 1937 votes.

And FAIRFAX city (85.71 of the precinct counted) where Webb is ahead by 1005 votes.

I would think that ISLE OF WIGHT will go for Allen when all votes are counted, and probably between 1000 to 3000 votes. Which probably won't help him as much, as well as Webb winning in,

FAIRFAX city, by between 1000 to 2000 votes.

And then Allen will probably ask for an automatic recount, and then probably for another recount, and finally both sides calling in an attorney.

And so for this election year, welcome to this country's new Ohio, Florida and Washington state:

Allen won´t find additional 4000 votes in the recount. He may try it, but this will even make him look like a loser more than ever before.prediction Map

I am unaware specifically with Virginia law but usually if the outcome of a vote is within 1%, the challenger can request a recount. At this point, I think Allen deserves a recount but I doubt there will be enough votes to change the outcome. prediction Map

Virginia law provides for a recount at the state's expense when the margin is below 1%. If greater than 1%, it is at the candidate's expense. In any case it will only occur if Allen requests it.

Last year we had an Attorney General race decided by 323 votes. I was an observer at the recount in my county. In Virginia the recount is really more like a repeat of the original state canvass. There is no recounting of ballots unless evidence is presented to the court of problems with the original count. There were only ten precincts in which a full recount was ordered in last year's AG recount. And the original count changed less than 30 votes.

If Webb's margin remains aroung 8000 after the full canvass, there is little likelyhood a recount would change things anywhere near that. I would expect that at that point Allen will concede without asking for a recount.

In any event, this one ain't gonna change. Webb has won and we have 51 Democrats in the Senate.

I believe I called this back in April. Pardon me while I go polish my crystal ball.

Does not look like Allen will contest the race. As long as Lieberman doesn't jump ship, I think the Dems have this one. Personally, I cannot wait until 2008 when Rick Santorum will run for County dog catcher and lose that race as well. He got quite the butt kicking last night. I think I am actually gonna miss that guy. He was always good for a joke or two. prediction Map

Yeah Mark Warner 08. You were the only person on Earth to predict the Macaca incident, Mrs. Allen revealing she was Jewish, and that George Allen used the word ni**er, which were the only events that made this race BARELY go for Webb! I'm stiking to my bet that John MCCain will call Hillary Clinton a "heshe", giving her the election by 73 points.prediction Map

Also, having a Democratic governor for two terms also helps your campaign and if Allen had a republican governor it would of helped him. VA is a moderate to conservative state but with Democratic governors it helps the Democrats a great deal.
