I don’t know; I kind of feel sorry for the DUmmies.

Hell no! Those a-holes will destroy the Republic if given the chance (and they've gone a long way toward it in the current regime).

I’ve been here since ‘97. I’m not a “noob”, and I agree with NE Cons. It’s our opinion. What’s the big deal? FR is not a reeducation camp where we all have to think exactly alike. Sheesh.

36% on union households voted for Walker! (probably higher than that for fear or backlash from union thugs)

CNN is actually doing a great job, showing the breakdowns of D and R results from 2010 and tonight and how the Dems are under performing in their own districts. Quote from Cooper “This is how elections are won.”

CNN has Walker up by 207,000 votes with 60% reporting. That’s a lot of votes to make up by late voters!!

So far Walker only needed one county to balance Dane. His lead in Waukesha is larger than his deficit in Dane and that’s with only 48% of Waukesha in compared to 62% of Dane. Leaving the rest of the state to balance Milwaukee. But wait, Walker is still leading in Milwaukee county 53-37, although only 14% is in there.

“I don’t trust any of them until all of Dane is in.”

I was looking at Politico’s website. Milwaukee County is only reporting about 12% counted. That’s worrisome too.

However, I’m pretty sure that the statisticians have figured in those votes already before calling the race for Walker.

This wouldn’t be possible without FR so let’s make the next Freepathon as painless for JR as possible! Consider becoming a monthly donor no matter how small amount. Every little bit helps!

I’m hoping the unions are listening because I so want this BS to be over. We shouldn’t have even had this recall election. Wisconsin needs jobs, not a recall of the Gov.

Can you guess which one is the GOP and the Conservatives - and which one is the DEMS, the Unions, and the MSM ???

Don't sweat Dane County...even if Barrett won 100% of the vote in the remaining precincts in Dane, he would barely dent Walker's statewide lead.

2126 of 3424 precincts are now in...62% of total

Walker 57%
Walker 42%

Only 10% of returns reported in the one Senate race,State Senate - District 21, the unions had their best chance at.
http://www.jsonline.com/news/statepolitics/june-5-recall-election-results-155977565.html

All the others have over 60% returns reported...

Looks fishy to me.

This might be the reason.

The Associated Press reports:

A Barrett spokesman said the campaign was not conceding, citing ongoing voting in Milwaukee, Madison and Racine.

“We feel very confident when those come in, Tom Barrett is going to win,” Phil Walzak said

It’s over Walker won by a decent margin.

The networks are all calling the election based on exit polls, which always seriously under-count the dead people vote. Those Democrat cemetery precincts always get counted last.
