It is going to be close. The Democrat strongholds won't report their results until they know how many votes they need

But not *that* close - Barrett is woefully underperforming in areas of Dane County that he would need to close the margin.

I have tuned to MSNBC for the first time in years just to watch. It’s a train wreck. The Queen of England’s Bonnaroo is on half the time.

Peter Barca (Wi House Minority leader) is saying that there’s still a lot of votes out there - especially in racine. He says that the night may end in a Truman-Dewey fashion.

Yep, Sarah definitely needs a new hair style. She’s still smart as a whip and I wish she was running against Obama instead of Romney.

I’m seeing some reports on Twitter that some people are still voting?? Is that true? Also I’m seeing Barrett is not conceding the race..

If it’s a large lead now, our chances of beating the MKM in Nov are even better, with voter ID in place. I bet Romney beats the MKM!

Awesome,you are probably right.SCYTL counting the votes in Spain still bothers me.

I agree with you. Her long bangs cast shadows over her eyes. I saw her a couple of days ago and her bangs were swept to the side and her hair was sleeker and I thought she looked great.

Is there a suicide watch on over at DU yet?

They must be on lockdown over there. I can't find a results thread over there. The latest about the Recall Election I can find there is that Holder and his people will be monitoring the election.

I hate to crap on everyone’s party, but this won’t be over if Barrett is within 5 percent at the final.

Walker's lead is currently 169,451 votes and the lead is growing while the percentage lead remains very stable. They might need to find 200,000 + votes to steal it. That is a tall order under this kind of national scrutiny.

Palin would have CRUSHED Obama. Romney may eke out a victory

The big difference is down-ticket. Palin would have created much more energy and would have been amazing!

1835 of 3424 precincts now reporting - 54% of total!

Walker - 58%
Barrett - 41%

Barrett only leading in six of 72 counties. By all measures, it is a GOP blowout!

Color Wisconsin RED for your November electoral map!

I don't usually do this but I wandered over to DU for a little schadenfreude...there are actually threads there screaming that people are still waiting in line to vote in the urban areas! Hilarious stuff. Only now, I have to scrub my browsing history for having been there.

Interesting results out of NJ tonite - two left-wing Dem congressmen, Pascrell and Rothman, had been redistricted into one district. The primary was extremely nasty - Paterson in Pascrell’s district has a high Muslim population and some radical elements in that community had posted extreme antisemitic bills for Pascrell and against Rothman over his support for Israel. Pascrell is winning big, about 70-30, but the Republican nominee for this district is Shmuely Boteach, a rabbi who does a lot of commentary on TV. A heavily Dem district, but Boteach is a character and may make a run for it, especially given the nastiness of the Dem primary.

1. It's over

2. The margin will exceed 5%, at any rate, probably more like 7 or 8 points.

From Hot Air-

Update: Only 38 percent of Dane County is in as I write this so the statewide margin will narrow, but incredibly, Walker’s sitting on a 17-point lead with 55 percent of the total votes counted. Wow.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the Jewish Press endorses Pascrell because he’s a Democrat

She's looked amazing EVERY single time I've seen her, except tonight. Must be under the weather. Never said she looked ugly tonight, just awful, as in not looking well.

She's a national treasure, a future POTUS. If I think she looks ill, it's from a place of concern for her.

Hooray for GB.

Hooray for everyone.

Now, let’s stop this and start winning. Together. Enough fighting.

Romney pick a winner. Then we’ll pick a team. Either way, the GOP will win this one.

Maybe we’ll have Palin in 2016. Either on the team. Or on the other side. :D

Either way, it’s good.
