Others are saying higher turnout in the Republican regions around Baltimore, while the liberal parts of the city itself aren't seeing such.

Who knows who is right at this point.

Yeah, those were hardly "the good old days" :-)

I also remember voting for Don Devine - one of the true Reagan Revolution "Sons of Liberty" - against Steny Hoyer. Don Devine was the OPM Director who urged President Reagan early in his presidency to stand up to big labor and fire the air traffic controllers. Truly a defining moment.

I sure hope both Gov. Erlich and Lt. Gov Steele can pull it off.

It has already been ruled that intent matters more, and that is what the courts will say.

I see what you mean about Keyes as a carpetbagger, but I disagree on them being different.

The key for me is that they are both very values-oriented. Steele is far more skilled on bringing that vision to bear in a low key manner. Keyes is more of a rant-and-rave type.

Now if you said Ehrlich and Keyes were different, I'd be with you 100%.

No matter, we're all on the same (and hopefully winning) team.

Dear Loyolas Mattman,

You note a significant point of similiarity between the two men.

However, I don't think that's the critical element.

I think that the fact that Mr. Steele can talk about the ICC and the Purple Line is the meat, not the gravy. Mr. Steele's knowledge of local issues is the critical element, and that's a real difference between him and Mr. Steele.

That's what tells folks that Mr. Steele is the real deal. That's where he really showed up Mr. Cardin, and really drove home that he's one of us, a Marylander, like others.

"No matter, we're all on the same (and hopefully winning) team."

You got it!

Steele winning will make my night, even if we lose 50 seats (yeah right) in the House.

A Steele victory serves a reminder that the GOP is the Party of Lincoln and Martin Luther King's dream lives on.

The other key issue in this race is the rise of the DC suburbs.

Cardin knew nothing about the issues down here, particuarly transportation.

One of the great mysteries is how Doug Duncan would have done against Ehrlich. Ehrlich would have had to run more to the right - Montgomery County is not as easy a target as Baltimore City. It would have been a completely different campaign, and who's to say how that would have affected the Steele race.

Dear Loyolas Mattmanm,

"It would have been a completely different campaign, and who's to say how that would have affected the Steele race."

How do you know it's not the other way around? I figure if anyone's got coattails today, it's Mr. Steele, not Mr. Ehrlich.

Just imagine if...we hold the House and Senate.

If this is true and Steele wins in MD, we are going to do very well tonight.

It's more than that. I believe he is a future President of the United States, and this will secure the future of the Republican Party. I am most anxious, for the sake of the future of conservatism, that Steele wins.

"Because it looks like Allen may lose."

Based on what? No votes have been counted yet. Anyone can lose, but it is a lot harder to do before the votes are counted.

I also voted for Allen early this morning, and have lived and voted in Virginia most of my adult life.

Based on RCP aggregation of polls--which I have found to be the most accurate of any method for predictions.

Based on RCP, Allen, Talent, DeWine, Chaffee and Santorum will be net losses. It's up to Maryland.

Oddly enough, one Dem who isn't really saddened by Steele's win is Nancy Pelosi..becuase it was her arch-enemy Steny Hoyer who hand-picked Cardin and forced him on the Md Dem party..

Which is why I am not comfortable with our being the "deciding" election for the Senate. I'd rather it be over early and avoid the nasty stuff that is inevitable if the other side is boxed in with nowhere to go.

I'd much rather have the reaction be, "it came down to who?"

There is only one poll that counts. Everyone should know that. Didn't anybody learn anything from the 2004 election?

A poll can't count votes, or cast them. It takes people going to the polls.

My polling place this morning:

I was rushed upon my arrival by a Webb worker, but before she could get to me I announced in a louder than usual voice to the Allen worker that I wanted one of the Allen signs to put in my front yard where neighbors on each side had placed Webb signs. (One of my neighbors works for the Washington Post, so no surprise there.)

Once inside there was a special event taking place that I want to share with all freepers, and particularly anyone who is thinking of sitting this one out. There was a man who appeared to be in his late thirties with both arms off at the shoulders. Our voting machines are touch screen models. He removed his right shoe by holding his left one against it. He then raised his right leg and made his selection with his toes, then placed his foot back on the floor while he read each item on the issues list to be voted on, and after each item was read, he raised his right leg and voted with his toes again and again. He was a model of efficiency.

What excuse do you think would have prevented this American from voting?

RCP is accurate in the bigger dance and this one will be full of surprises.
Big Mo came in late and it's running HARD.

It's not on any scoredcard except for today. That's going to show the drift has continued to the right!

And the rain isn't going to hurt either.

If Steele wins Maryland -- it would be a miracle. No shot. Zero.

Great candidate -- great guy -- great campaign -- and he once did a campaign stop for me -- so I wish it was true.

he will be lucky to close to within 4 points.

If he wins -- which again I think is a zero possibility -- the republicans will hold the house and senate -- and this hype will be exposed. Unfortunately -- I see no indication of that -- none.

sorry.

He's only 70-75% conservative, but he's rock-solid, having endured heavy intimidation and ridicule from many quarters and never waverwed (it only gets his back up). I like this guy, 2008 is too early, but If he sticks to his principles and sticks by his woman, he'll be big-time in 2012.
