CNN reporting 50-50 exits...

Of course...they don't want whatever viewers they still have running off to sports programming or some such...

Precincts reporting = 1%.

Pay no attention to such a small sample size! It’s going to be a long night. Buck up, FRiends!

CNN lies. You know that, right?

Does one call the author of a work of fiction a liar? Outlets like CNN "advance stories" that are dumbed down and slanted left...and everyday the stories diverge from reality just a little further than the day before. At some point, we have to simply treat it as closer to pure fiction than pure reporting.

CNN reporting 50-50 exits but all their guests are prepping a Walker victory.

All of the talking heads appear to be assuming Walker wins, but many cling to the exit polls to give hope. As I recall, President Kerry won the exit polls, too.

Here we go again. They start reporting the GOP precincts and some of the small democrap precincts first and then at the end of the night the bastards in Madison and Milwaukee know how many votes they need and start turning in all the fraud votes.

Is anyone ever going to change the way democraps steal elections. Is so pathetic.

Big, liberal precincts are always slow to come in. They need to wait and see how many votes they need to steal.

This is why there should be simultaneous blind reporting of precincts. All the precincts do their counts, and hold off reporting until all report at the same time. Precincts should only be identified after the SOS certifies the results.

Fiction/lies - they don’t tell the truth.

On a related note - Juan Williams is the amazing pretzel man. He turns himself into a pretzel to justify his liberal mindset. Good gosh.

He may not get a blowout win due to rampant voter fraud.

The Left never learns. Exit polls are so much noise.Here is what usually happens. Leftist clown rushes to find a pollster to tell them how they voted. Normal person simply votes and gets on with their lives. Exit polls always run Left of reality

Keep an eye on DANE County - that went for Barrett 150,000 to 68,000 in 2010 (68% - 31%)...Walker can hopefully stay closer then that this time.

Exit polls show a tie, but Walker's numbers look pretty decent so far in rural Wisconsin. Dems will need huge Milwaukee/Madison turnout.

I also note that Hannity keeps hinting about making a call during his show, but maybe he always does that. :)

Green Lake County:

Walker 72.3% with 37.5% reporting.

In 2010 Walker won it with 64.3%

Don’t know if the county has more Dem vote in it, but I’ll take what I can get.

Juan Williams is a dick.

Walker shoved what down our throats!?!? Walker did only exactly what he promised when he ran for Gov. Yet, Juan never had any problem with ObamaCare getting shoved down our throats. Very selective outrage.

Some of the results sites are already crashing due to volume...

192 of 3424 precincts reporting - 6% of total

Walker - 58% (71,895)
Barrett - 41% (51,244)

Intrade at 94%

17 point spread - looking good, though the big union cities have yet to report.

Good point if the big cites like Madison go against Wal;ker it could get real close. One thing that really aggravates me is that we never really got the central message out and once again its our fault. We have no one to blame.

I bet half the voters up there had no clue that other than losing the right to bargain which is huge for the union,but should not have been since they are "public" unions--a huge difference between "private" unions,this fight is about the unions having to contribute a little over 10% to their own healthcare, instead of nothing!! Unreal when you think about it.

Dodge: 66% in. Walker 67.1%, versus 66% last time.
Lake: 37.5% in. Walker 72% vs 64% last time.
Door: 58% in. Walker 58.3% vs 50% last time
Fnd Du Lac: 44% in. Walker 67% vs 64% last time

Those are all the counties with over 20% in.
