It's a bad omen when even tax cuts can't lift your candidate in a heavily Republican district that went for Trump by 20 points in 2016:

Republicans abandon tax cut message in Pa. special election
Itís a sign they think the issue isnít resonating ó potentially a big problem in the midterms.

Its over. Calling it now: snow has destroyed Lamb in Allegheny County, in this competitive house race.  Saccone wins by 2-3 points, and a very slight or none at all net gain for Democrats in the house in november.

Funny.

The weather looks to be the worst in Washington county today if weather.com is to be believed.

I seriously doubt a half-inch of snow will prevent anyone from voting.

Rick Saccone (again) claiming that Democrats hate God. Is he doing this because he knows he's gonna lose?

@fluffypanther19
In politics worldwide, red is usually associated with the left and blue with the right.

Edit: The USA is the opposite for some reason.

This site existed before the two parties formalized their colors post-Florida, when the media was referring to blue/red counties.

I don't think that's right @Oryx. The red-republicans, blue-democrats color scheme was in use during 90s election coverage.

The shift in the US happened during the ordeal that was 2000 I believe, due to the New York Times publishing election maps using the present colors. Before that there was not any consensus among media outlets.

My understanding is that the norm was to use blue for the incumbent party. So Democrats were blue in 1996 and 2000, GOP was blue in the 80s.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/11/08/red-vs-blue-a-brief-history-of-how-we-use-political-colors/ has a nice history of this.  I remember NBC's coverage with Red-D and Blue-R in elections from '76 or so.

Saw a picture on Instagram of somebody voting in Forward Township in Allegheny. Nobody was in line. Trump won here with 66% of the vote.

Heard from a friend that lines are already long in Allegheny. Plus the weather is very nice.

Still ten hours to go.

You know where at in Allegheny?

This lady seems credible. She's followed by some election nerds.




Looks like there is exit polling, at least for the Lamb campaign.

She's a Political Science professor at the University of Pittsburgh. So very legit.

Ok, so we're at the elation point of the pre-election anecdotal reports.
