If we lose Allen...
11/7/06 | Me

Posted on 11/07/2006 9:04:33 PM PST by paudio

We need to win both TN and MO to hold the senate... right? Hopefully Allen can still pull it off... Both TN and MO look good, although unfortunately MT doesn't...

I think Allen will sqeak through. Talent and Corker will both win.

Webb just pulled 2000 votes ahead, which isnt all that big a margin

We will still hold the Senate. Remember even when it is 50/50 the Vice President casts the breaking vote. Thus majority.

We are likely to lose MO.

Only votes left to count are inner-city St. Louis and KC.

Republican insiders think it is lost.

No, the WaPO is what did him in. They have tried to bury him from the beginning. His missteps were nothing compared to the outrageous attacks perpetrated by that rag of a paper.

You still have absentee and provisional ballots to count in VA, I believe. Webb would have to be far more than 2000 votes ahead to truly call that race.

The real winners tonight are the left wing Main Stream Media. They will see this election as proof that they can manipulate voters and polls to their advantage. Look for 2008 to be even worse when it comes to their bias.

Forget Talent. The Corner has him well below the #s he needs before St. Louis comes in. Ditto Burns, who doesn't have enough from the favorable counties. Steele now falling behind.

Looks like the senate's gone, too, and with it, any judges. Too bad I don't drink. This is really the night for it.

Does not look good for Talent! Very heavy Demacrat areas of Clay, Jackson and St. Louis county have not reported any numbers yet tonight. The Dems are strong there.

EVERY GOPer gets raked over the mud by the MSM. That's a given. THus, GOPers must run near flawless campaigns or have balls made of steel (Bush). Allen did not and has not.

In past races, they have said those ballots can take up to a week to tally.

Uh oh... That's not good because Burns' numbers are even worse... He has 42% vs 56% now...

Hell, it sure took them long enough to manufacture those votes in St Louis and K.C. I can't help but feel that my white, middle-class vote just doesn't count for much anymore...

I don't believe that the absentee ballots get counted until after everything else is counted...and only then if the number of absentees exceeds the winning margin. In this case I'm sure they'll be counted...hell they may determine the race.

I think I agree with you about the Senate. We just couldn't pull it out in the last few minutes.

Any ideas as to what did us in, given what appeared to be pretty good turn out? Of course...we'll be spending weeks discussing that, but what is your gut instinct right off the race?

Not mine, but before he showed himself the fool, he looked good on paper. I think he still might pull this out though, hopefully

The areas in VA that are reporting heavily Webb have a reputation for corruption. I don't trust the data, esp. given the fact that these precincts are reporting last. If you have only 2000 votes in your precinct, why would it take you 4 hours to count??? Oh, wait, this is the result of their educational system.

My prediction is that white votes will never again count. The "comprehensive" border control is in our future. We are just about to become the minority. But not to worry, the whole world is going brown.

I agree, this will prove to the MSM that they can swing an election anytime they want. The hit pieces by the post and the NY slimes will just get worse for 2008, and of course CNN will continue to show video clips of terrorist propaganda and specials like "broken government" everyday.

Unfortunately, Webb has won it. Very unlikely Allen can prevail. Hopefully Talent can hold his seat.

JOe Lieberman, this morning, contrary to what even dems who worked on his campaign say, said that he ran as an Independent and "I am going to be VERY Independent" - wouldn't it be a hoot if, in the near future, he flipped to pubbie?

The dems say "Joe doesn't hold a grudge. He's still very democrat." Well, he doens't have to hold a grudge to realize he was betrayed, kicked aside, etc. He also no longer owes them a dang thing. He doesn't have to kow tow to anyone.

In Missouri, not a single precinct in Kansas City has reported. Outrageous!!!

In St. Louis City, the Sec'y of State website has a javascript error on the City precincts!!!.

In St. Louis County only 10% of precincts have reported.

Statewide Precincts Reporting 2278 of 3746. Talent leads by 72,xxx, but the late precincts range from 53% Dem to 80% Dem - all urban, liberal and ethnic.

We don't know ANYTHING yet.

Allen is still winning on this site:

http://sbe.virginiainteractive.org/index.htm

" G F Allen Republican 1,141,753 49.44%
J H Webb Jr Democratic 1,139,885 49.36% "

I pray that you guys do not lose the senate too.

I feel really bad for Steele, I really wanted him to win. I wonder if the absentees are counted there yet? The remaining counties all look strongly democratic though.

Chris.

I was never impressed with Allen, figuring he would peak as a Senator for life. Hope he hangs on.

My friends.....

I am totally BUMMED OUT right now and I think we need a collective Republican-Conservative-Patriotic American group hug.

Both houses may well go over to the dark side tonight.. the forces of appeasement, mediocrity and socialism have won a temporary victory tonight. And we need some major conservative mojo to get us thru the next two years and on to a reversal of fortune in '08.
