S.Dakota Secretary of State ^ | Nov 2, 2010 | S.Dakota

Posted on 11/02/2010 8:34:16 PM PDT by Future Useless Eater

Kristie Noem (R) was loosing ground consistently in the first 250 precincts counted, but then turned around and has been (mostly) gaining in remaining precincts.

I REALLY hope Noem holds on. This would be a nice trophy seat for the GOP. Herseth-Sandlin is considered one of the Dems rising stars, and she has no business representing an R+20 district.

No results from Todd and Shannon counties in South Dakota. This is Indian Country and favors dems heavily. Keeping my fingers crossed that the gains in Pennington can outweigh the losses from the reservation!

For those Freepers not familiar with South Dakota; the state is somewhat philosophically divided between the east and the west with Liberals more concentrated in the East and Conservatives more concentrated in the West. This is roughly matched by the Missouri River physical divide in the middle of the state and a similar time zone divide. So the eastern Liberal vote comes in earlier than the western Conservative vote.

This is not exact. And Democrat vote fraud comes at the end from late reporting Democrat counties throughout the state once they know how many votes to fake. That's how Tom Dashle and Tim Johnson were elected.

So as the western SD vote comes in Kristi should do well. It's just a matter of whether she does well enough to exceed the margin of fraud.

Great news. I saw her early numbers and my heart sank. Glad to see things turn around. Keep an eye out here in Washington. Rossi needs has some catching up to do.

I’d have to disagree a little. When Noem was up by about a thousand votes with half the precincts reporting it was over. Even with reservation fraud a dem has to be at least even and usually a few thousand ahead coming out of east river country. I told my wife to expect Noem’s lead to slowly widen for the rest of the night, just like I told nervous GOP friends to relax when Thune was down a bit coming out of East River 6 yrs ago.

Remember how Daschle needlessly kept us up late? He knew dang well he was toast before a single west river vote was counted, and so did miss perky tonight. It had to be painful for perky to pretend she could win this race for all those hours tonight, just as it was for old Tom. I popped champagne early that night and tonight as well. I’m one ecstatic west river ex-pat right now.

Two down, one to go...

Problem with SHS is that she represents Washington and not the people of SD. She’s another Tom Daschle and will be selling the house in Brookings and setting permanent residence in DC.

Understand your rationale and cannot disagree with it.

My points for non-South Dakotans were;

1. Because of SD’s geographic/philosophical/time difference, early voting returns will normally be Democrat heavy. Republican votes weigh in later.

2. Because of the historic late returns of certain Democrat counties, close elections in SD cannot be “called” until vote fraud has been eliminated from the equation.

Our views do not oppose each other. Rather, yours are more refined than mine. And though your SD voting observations may be too detailed for non-South Dakotans, I will certainly use them in watching future elections.

Very glad that Kristi won. Will be good to have a South Dakotan representing us for a change. And when Miss Perky has to leave the gravy train, I'm sure it won't be to live in South Dakota. She'll be unpacking he designer carpet bags elsewhere.

As you say; “Two down, one to go...”

Yes, my post was meant to complement and tweak your own observations, not disagree with them. And they are indeed probably mainly of interest to keen (obsessed?) observers of SD politics.

Your basic principles — East vs West, potential for fraud in certain precincts, are spot-on and essential for understanding South Dakota. What is unique to South Dakota, (or at least I haven’t seen it in other states) is that the voting tendencies aren’t just separated by regions of the state (that’s pretty common,) but very neatly by time-zone.

So, as we both said, all of the most Dem friendly vote comes in first, scaring people who don’t realize that the best stuff won’t start coming in until an hour later. This is just one more close election that shows that if a Pubbie is behind by only a few thousand in East River, he/she is going to win.

Noem won the same way that Thune did — running just a bit closer than expected in just about every precinct out east, and then blowing it wide open out west.

Now if we can just find someone willing to take on Tim Johnson and do the same.
