If there were enough ballots misspelled then Joe should continue with his lawsuit.

This one really gets me. How can anyone do what she did and call herself a winner? She is a disgrace and the epitome of what we all hate in politics. I sure am hoping for a miracle....I couldnt stand to see her accept this stolen race and act like a winner. Shows what money and the need for power does to people.

Updated results here. Not looking good at all. Apparently the military/overseas ballots will not put Miller over, barring a miracle. They don’t expect those ballots to amount to as many as 1000 total. And if they did and they were all for Miller, it wouldn’t be enough. And if they were enough, Democrats know how to steal or invalidate military ballots. It’s their specialty.

Ahead by 1,700 but 7,000 ballots are in dispute and Military ballots have not been counted. Looks like a close one.

Lisa Murkowski won’t survive for long... She may have her win here (and be despised by most Americans) but she seems to be able to gain another 6 years due to her local corrupt Republican party. This is a short term win for her, but a long term loss for Alaska.

I really hope that she is shunned and despised in Congress - after all, she is just another example of those that claim exemptions to the process.

If anyone needs some ruthless wakening up, it is she...

These numbers and comments don’t make sense to me, and whoever wrote the articles in Alaska knows how to be about as clear as mud.

Comparing the numbers from the close of the day Sunday to the close of day Monday, Murkowski gained 6,408 votes and Miller gained 2,941 votes.

IOW 9,341 votes counted on Monday.

Now what ballots are those? Are those absentee ballots, and over twice as many people voted for Murkowski before she had even said she was running a write-in campaign? That doesn’t make sense to me.

How many absentee ballots were sent out? How many were received? How many may still come in? How many have been counted?

Those are the facts that a good report should include, but neither of the articles I read gave any of those details. If somebody knows the facts and could fill me in, that would be great.

If they are done with the write-ins, this is about as good a news as could be expected.

The remaining votes should include more Miller votes than Murkowski votes, so he should make up a few hundred.

In the end, the question is how many of the challenged votes are validly challenge.

We know that there are some that are silly challenges, like if the name was cursively spelled, or the voter included “republican” at the end, or put a comma between the first and last name.

There are others that are serious challenges, where the name is scribble and they are assuming it was murkowski.

In the middle are lots of intermediate errors, bad spellings, etc.

If the court went by the strict rules of the law, my guess is Miller would come out ahead.

However, officials still have to count about 40,000 absentee ballots this week, according to the Alaska Division of Elections Director Gail Fenumiai. That figure includes several thousand absentee ballots with write-in votes that have not been counted yet.

If there are 40,000 absentee ballots left to count...it looks like Miller has a decent chance of pulling this out. That is if the absentee ballots haven’t been tampered with in some way. Is it true that Murkowski is not on the absentee ballots?

I wonder what happened here..Miller beat her fair and square. Did some of those conservatives who voted for him now switch their vote for her rather than vote for Miller? This does not make a lot of sense to me...Something is fishy.

Well, if she has pulled ahead then I guess it’s time to stop counting.....

Is anyone going to check if any of the write in ballots bear the same handwriting?

Joe Miller has 90,458 votes with none (zero) disputed and
Lisa Mircowskee has 92,164 votes which includes 7,601 votes contested or challenged.

Thus, Merekawchi has currently a 1,706 vote advantage over Joe Miller including the 7,601 contested write-in votes.

If 4,706 of Myrkowpsychi's votes are invalidated as not meeting the standard, then Joe Miller would be 3,000 votes ahead.

Of course all of this may be moot if the article got it wrong and Lisa Mirshecow leads without the contested 7,601 votes. Then Joe Miller would require a very big push from the remaining absentee and military ballots.

MSM reporting; Miller = 90,458
L.M. = 92,169 this number includes 7,601 votes Miller challenged. This said to me if Joe Miller wins just 1/2 of his challenged votes, HE WINS. not counting the Military vote. (but it's late I could be wrong.)
