RE: Early Ballot Counts in Washington State
This evenings returns indicate this election is as close as many predicted, in that it is too close to call. A few points to remember as you examine returns:
· Historically in Washington, the Republican candidates improve their percentages in each county in votes counted after Election Day, usually improving their margins by 2 to 3 percentage points.
King County, which is providing most of Sen. Murrays margin, accounts for 30.7% of all registered voters in the state. According to County Election reports, King County only has 26.7% of the remaining ballots left to count. The rest of the state, where Rossi has a comfortable lead, will count proportionately more ballots post-Election Day.
· Spokane County, where Rossi is currently in the lead by more than 50%, still has at least 21.6% of the remaining ballots left to process, with more coming in.

Yabba dabba ... and maybe tomorrow morning, a doo.
It sounds encouraging, but if I was Dino Rossi (is that a great name or what, btw?), I’d have my lawyers ready to challenge every single ballot.
Rossi might just be the surprise of the night.
they’ll find enough ballots in car trunks and prison mailbags to get the dem over the top, again.
4 priorities now.1. Repeal Obamacare..2. Cut Taxes...3...Defund the Rat Moocher states and let them collapse...4 Impeach Obama.
WA state didn’t send out the ballots in accordance with the MOVE act, so I believe a fairly large number of overseas military weren’t not afforded their right to vote...and a large percentage of military votes tend to go republican. It may turn out that the democrat violation of the law in regard to the military will turn out to be the deciding lack of votes.
at least get a roll of barbed wire on the border and do it now....
King County may be 100% in, but that means that another 50% of the votes still need to be counted there, just as soon as they find out how many votes their Dingbat needs.
You can add Harry Reid to that list. This is from Real Clear Politics, and their data is very convincing.
Hard Data Supporting Fraudulent Activity in Nevada Election - ACTION NEEDED
They did it before, when Rossi first ran against Gregorie (sp?). King County is as bad as Chicago, a lot of New England, in that they will find enough dead people to vote until they get the results that they want, or so it seems.
Dino Rossi is that kind of candidate who would have easily won the seat in Nevada or WV...
Fingers, toes, and eyes crossed.
All intentional - believe it.
I find it absolutely disgusting that Rossi can win 80% of the counties and as of right now, does not have a lead.
Of the 8 counties that he lost he still managed to get at least 47% of the vote in four of them.
We need a law that says a person must win at least 25% of the counties in order to win a statewide election.
Failing to do so and the election would go to the next candidate with the most votes who has won at least 25% of the counties.
Rossi lost some ground today...darn.
Still 591,000 ballots to be processed according to the wa.gov site at your link. 171,000 or so for King county, 85000 for Spokane county. It’s going to be close. Last update 11/4 at 2:53PM.
