Crap Waukesha now reporting (20% in) - Dane still sitting at 16% (Rats saving that county til late) - Waukesha went 72-28 Walker 2010; Running 75-25 now (little ahead of 2010 pace!) As the late great Chick Hearn used to say when the Lakers had wrapped up another win, "This one's in the refrigerator. The eggs are getting cold and the jello's jigglin'."

“I suspect Milwaukee/Dane County are lying in the wings, waiting to see how many votes they need”

Highly likely scenario, 61/39 lead all depends were the counts are from. Hannity is teasing that they may have a call in the next few minutes “really”

I don’t know how accurate these things are but fox news is reporting that the race is too close to call. OTOH, I just checked the Drudge Report and he has Walker at 61% and Barret at 39% with 11% of the results in.

The rural/urban divide in this election is even more pronounced than usual. Madison and MIlwaukeewe come in for Barrett. I do believe that Walker received more votes than the margin of fraud. We will have to stay up late on this one to be sure.

I think he might even win by 10 points. Here’s a for instance, a small county, Crawford County. Prosser got about 40% of the vote. Walker is getting 56% with about half the vote in.

% looks great...but what about VOLUME? We need #'s to overcome the Madison and Milwaukee.

RE: Exit polling.

I’ve been convinced that for the past 6-9 months, conservatives have shunned polling groups and just letting their vote speak for them.
