Walker is crushing his 2010 margins everywhere - I’m beginning to think the race will be called in the next 30 minutes or so.

I went to this site:

http://www.jsonline.com/news/statepolitics/152346265.html

And started comparing the percentages to the Supreme Court race last year (Prosser), as that was close to a 50-50 race. In every county I’ve looked at so far, Walker is exceeding Prosser’s percentage significantly. The only way he loses is if turnout is much higher this time in the Dem areas relative to the GOP areas. Except the turnout was intense a year ago, so I don’t see that being different on the Dem side this time.

On a news source I saw that the ONE party out spent the other party to a margin of 8 to 1... Does anyone have a link to this?

Too close to call? 19% reporting and it’s Walker 60-39?

With only 16.5% of precincts reporting:

Walker 60.5 234k
Barrett 38.9 150k

Still early days though, expect it to tighten a lot this is not over.

The fact that Wisconsin voters strongly oppose recall elections unless for malfeasance in office indicates the Democrats are going to get their head handed to them on a plate tonight.

I don’t think that 61% will hold, but if it does or even comes close to it, Obama is (milk) toast in November. I know he’s a milk toast now, but it’ll have a different connotation then.
