P-tooey. Percentage at 56% to 43%. I really don’t want this to happen.

Probably sucks more for the liberals than us to be given such false hope and then get such a shock.

Turnout looks like it will be maybe 100,000 higher than the Presidential election year of 2010. So much for high turnout automatically favoring commies. LOL.

I look forward to admitting that I’m being overly pessimistic.

These tweets will make you feel better:

Charles Sykes ‏@SykesCharlie
Suck on this Madison. Waukesha County. 78% reporting.., Walker 72%. Epic.

Charles Sykes ‏@SykesCharlie
Washington County 75% in ; Walker 76-23. Huge...

Walker's margins will more than offset anyhing Barrett can come up with. I think he'll win by 7 or 8 points.

The communists have been on the march in the United States since 1932. Unwinding 80 years of their work will take a lifetime commitment. This election is only the start.

I can only vouch for the last 70 years, but I hear you!

Hmm. I guess I should check on the California primary results to see if any of my selections won. There's a buzz kill for you.

Same over on the PMSNBC ED Commie Show “still voting” in Milwaukee . From the Ed Show moonbat talking head - “This will be in fact a close election!”

What Moonbat, you got hundreds of thousands of rat votes stashed in the DNC basement?

He’s keeping the lead at 200,000. That’s a TON.

So while the % may change, the lead has been around 200k and is staying about there.

I don’t know how many votes are yet to be counted. But supposing it’s 500,000... then for the lead to evaporate, Barrett would have to win 400,000 of them [ie 80%] and I don’t see that happening.

Of course if fewer votes remain, the % req’d for barrett goes above 80%.

I’m sufficiently satisfied and happy. Good night.

As others have said, “I can see November from Wisconsin”

They just might. This is one of the most important elections in the last 50 years, if not ever... and the commies know it. I wouldn’t put it past them to have been forging ballots for weeks.

The big blue counties are holding their counts.
He may win, but he needs to win big enough to shut down a recount.

Well, they just now got to 22% of the Van Wnggard vote reported while all the other races have been about 70% reported.

The unions are demanding that this race somehow be given to them and everyone up to the DOJ is cooperating IMHO.
