“They are all going to Racine to vote. That’s where the close Senate race is.”

Good to know. I hear the race is too close to call. Turn out is high.

Intrade is a place that trades stock in predicted outcomes...a sort of gambling. The price of a “share’ of Walker winning costs much more than one of him losing at this point...because those gambling on this market perceive that he is much more likely to win.

Hey CD how is it going Bud?I was listening to Glen Beck this morning and one of the callers was talking about a bunch of people who were voting and when asked what city they were from they couldn’t even pronounce the name of the city they were supposedly from. This is what worries me.The demonrats know they can’t win without heavy cheating.Massive voting fraud.

What’d they do, poll the UAW members getting off the charter buses?

BTW, when will that Wisconsin Journal interactive recall election map start working? Anyone know?

On races like this....you cannot trust “Exit polls”

We just got to wait for the results to come in.

Unconfirmed but I just head that the voter turn out in Madison is around 119%. Anyone have any info on this?

Intrade is reacting to the “too-close-to-call” announcements by the networks. People holding Walker shares are panic selling.

Just got back from my little, in the middle of nowhere polling station. A worker told me the turnout was strong for that place,(over 1000 voters). That’s a good indication the conservative farm vote was out in force.

Intrade is uncannily accurate because people "in the know" tend to put money on certain events happening in the future.

Intrade simply reflects conventional wisdom. It's a lagging indicator.

The Democrat Left have thrown every resource they have into this battle. If they are still soundly defeated, in spite all all the cheating and manipulation, this will be a conservative victory of historic proportions and it will prove that the mid-terms of 2010 was no fluke and that a Tea Party tsunami is on tap for November.

Absolutely right!

If anything upsets the apple cart of our social contract, I predict it will be vote fraud.

It’s been allowed to happen incrementally, and one day it will go too far to be tolerated. What happens then?

When the Justice Department is suing states to make vote fraud easier, where can citizens turn? If nonviolent civil disobedience doesn’t work, then what?

If you can’t trust the election process, then all bets are off. A representative republic lives or dies on honest elections. If massive, obvious fraud is allowed to stand, then the government has relinquished the right to govern.

Whats happening on Intrade is that we’re now seeing more serious volume. Prior trades were in units of 1 to 5 shares, now we’re seeing volumes of 10 to 100 shares. Still small enough that it can be gamed.

“one Repub loses and the Rats have control from what I believe I read a few days back.
That won’t matter; the Senate is out of session until the Fall, and the GOP will retake control after redistricting by then.”

It will maintain their intimidation of politicians across the country if the unions show they have the power to come in and knock some one out though.

Conversely, if they can’t, it will free many politicians to vote for what they believe is best for their voters instead of what’s best for the unions.

Early exit polls seem over weighted to union members and libs.

No doubt. You have a dozen union goons standing outside the polling place, and the pollster asks you who you voted for? Gee, what do you say?

New Mexico, at least for the primary, has done away with precinct voting - All precincts can vote at any county location. All computerized - they check your registration and you sign an electronic keypad and they print a ballot for your precinct/district. Lady behind me offered a driver’s license for an ID and poll worker says “we aren’t allowed to ask for photo ID but we’ll take it if you have it.” GRRRR.

But in and out in five minutes - only a couple of contested races. And many of the state house/senate and local positions have no Democratic challenger in the general election so who ever wins tonight is elected.

Listening to WISN 1130am and they are saying the afterwork crowds are piling into polling places because they have been listening all day to reports of Dems just grabbing people off the streets and getting them in to vote.

Yes, Cavuto on Fox Business News just had with 4,000 votes in, it is 57% for Walker to 42% for Barrett.

Less than 1% of the vote counted.

Don’t forget right now, at this instant is where the RATS don’t know how many trunks to open for ‘found’ ballots or other votes to stuff.

I expect phone lines and cell fones are burning up in WI as we type.

AP desperately trying to help the RATS out with incomplete data.

To be fair, the actual words are "turnout is on pace to hit 119% in Madison." This is far different from already having reached an almost certainly fraudulent level of voting. I have no doubt that there is massive, organized fraud in Madison, but the report should be read correctly. 14 posted on Tuesday, June 05, 2012 7:15:38 PM by Pollster1 (A boy becomes a man when a man is needed - John Steinbeck)

Thanks for asking. My Dad is 76 and although he made me the conservative daughter I am today,,,he also had not voted since the days of JFK.

The Thanksgiving after Hussein was elected, we in the family were asking him why he didn’t vote in that election. We were at the dinner table. He told us kids that the last person he voted for was JFK. (Let’s all remember that the dems of JFK’s time were like the average republican politician of today and that JFK lowered taxes to increase tax revenue, etc.).

What he meant was the last time he voted, his candidate was eliminated, and it soured him on voting. For many years we kids prodded him to vote, begged him. Mom always votes, but not Dad.

Well today I called to make sure Mom voted and she said not only did she vote but my dad did too. I let out a whoop and holler and a “Praise The Lord!”. I told my husband that a miracle occurred in my family today, and he guessed what it was based on the fact that today is election day.

I sent a quick email to Mark Belling (subs for Rush) around 3:50pm during the first hour of his radio show out of Milwaukee describing this miracle, and at 4pm, the start of hour 2 of The Mark Belling Late Afternoon Show, Mark read my email as an example of the passion of the WI conservative vote in this election, and how people are getting out the vote, and new voters have been inspired to register and vote by what has gone on in WI for the last 2 years.

Back at a previous post, I gave the link to Mark’s show. If you look at “hour 2, part 1” my email is read in the first few minutes of that section of the show.

Cheers!
