Nikki Haley? [Vanity]

Posted on 11/02/2010 5:21:43 PM PDT by Feline_AIDS

What is going on with Nikki Haley?

I can't watch local TV, but I heard from someone on the phone it was too close to call, which sounds insane considering that she was ahead by 10+ a week ago.

Thanks FA

Democrats always run ahead early. Richland county is solid blue, as is Charleston county, and both are early counts. But when Lexington county is added—which is always late in the evening—she’ll be ahead. I am very comfortable with that race.

I was worried too. I heard from WVOC Radio that it is too close to call. I can’t believe it is so close. Let’s hope that the counting started from heavily Dem precincts.

Take it easy! FoxNews just reported she’s up slightly — but only about 3% are reporting — and most of them AREN’T from the heavily Republican areas!

Don’t be silly. That’s not a real issue in South Carolina.

Right now, only FIVE of 46 counties have finished reporting: Marion, Dillon, Darlington & Chesterfield are in the Pee Dee and are LARGELY Democrat. Abbeville is in the Upstate along the Georgia border and is the least Conservative or Republican of any in that region of SC.

Five other counties have partially reported: Beaufort and Dorchester in the Low Country (VERY Democrat — with the possible exception of Hilton Head Island), Richland and Fairfield in the Midlands (VERY Democrat), and York County, which is in transition, but in urban areas remains largely Democrat).

Don’t read too much into the numbers yet. NO major Republican counties have come in yet.

Lots of these democrat districts have to be heavily black, and I just wonder what could happen if we could ever make our true message known, that there is no difference between black and white, and that God really did create all men (people) equal, and that the mistakes of the past have no bearing on the future. That the openness of conservatism invites blacks and all other minorities to rise as far as their individual level of commitment would allow; that conservatism is about the man and that includes every man, including the forgotten man; that you truly may be whatever you resolve to be...

I’m listening to the talk radio station in the Upstate, where conservatives are the majority. The radio guy is reporting that the lines in this area were so long that the polling places remained open until 8pm.

Thus, reports from the conservative areas are coming in about an hour late.

Indeed, looking at the reports on the State Elections website, it appears that NONE of the heavy Republican counties have reported, and that’s why Nikki remains about 20,000 votes down at this point. That is well within the reach of those counties to make up — IF indeed the turnout is as heavy as is being reported in the upstate Republican strongholds...

Fox news projects Haley the winner, getting 53% of the vote.

Jack Spratt loses.
