Watching the election results.

Results reported here.

On the TV station we're watching, News 3, with 6% in, Prosser and Kloppenburg are tied at 50%.

UPDATE, 8:50: 51% Prosser, 49% Kloppenburg, with 9% reporting.

UPDATE, 8:55: According to the Milwaukee State Journal, with 11% reporting, it's 51% Prosser, 49% Kloppenburg.

UPDATE, 9:30: On TV, they seem to be pre-spinning a Kloppenburg loss, saying what an amazing thing it is that she has come close to beating an incumbent.

UPDATE, 9:36: 34% reporting, David Prosser 265,662 (50%), Joanne Kloppenburg 263,356 (50%).

UPDATE, 9:54: With 49% in, News 3 has Prosser at 51% and Kloppenburg at 49%.

UPDATE, 11:08: Paul Soglin has won the mayoral race. He's speaking now, looking extremely tired.

UPDATE, 11:14: Kloppenburg had gone up, but now they're back even at 50%.

UPDATE, 11:35: Concentrating on the AP numbers, looking at which counties still need to report, I'm irritated by the way Waukesha (strong for Prosser) and Dane (strong for Kloppenburg) seem to be holding out, like it's a game of chicken. Right now the candidates are 50-50%, with Prosser up 6,000+. It's been seesawing back and forth, with Kloppenburg up some of the time. To my eye, it looks as though there are more votes left to report in the places that are pro-Prosser, so I think in the end Prosser will squeak by.

UPDATE, 11:43: Dane (Madison's county) is nearly all in. I don't see how Kloppenburg can net more than about 3,000 with what's left of Dane. Waukesha is now shown as completely in, but the numbers didn't change, so I think something may have been misreported. I took the trouble to do a calculation and was going to predict that Prosser would net 40,000 more votes in Waukesha. What happened?

UPDATE, 11:55: There will be a recount, I assume. All those absentee ballots. The possibility of some fraud. It's nearly midnight here. Maybe we won't know the answer for days.

Hopefully Prosser can win by more than the margin of fraud.

With some elections, "nail biter" doesn't begin to cover it. Do municipalities typically report earlier or later than average in WI?

bagoh20 said...

This is more exciting than American Idol! I think Kloppenburg was kind of pitchy.

Matthew said...

What is the margin of fraud in this case? Do you think that they'd actually contest this election if it was close -- OK, if I were in either camp I would, just because too much money has been thrown at it not to.

Anyone know the rules on recounts for this kind of election?

They show 51-49 for Prosser with 12% reporting.

ALH said...

It will be very close.
And then at about 11:45 pm, some uncounted ballots will be "found" in downtown Madison or Milwaukee...propelling the Dem to victory.

thanks for the link, James. Very helpful.

Windbag said...

I love election nights, especially the local offices, where you know everyone, and it gets very, very personal.

Patrick said...

ALH, I fear you're right. Exactly what Franken did. In Robert Caro's biography of LBJ, he notes LBJ's rookie mistake in his first congressional election was to not tell "his" precincts to report late. When they reported, his oppnonent was able to tell "his" precincts how many votes were needed for victory. And so it goes...

Beta Rube said...

All tied with 17% reporting.

Still no returns on the Madison mayor race, so that makes me think there's no Madison report yet.

The fact that Prosser has over 30% makes me think there are no Madison votes counted...

Beta Rube said...

We are also following the race to replace Gov. Walker as Milwaukee County Executive. Right now the Dem, Abele, has a big lead.

He's a trust fund baby who has never held a real job, so he's certainly qualified to hold office as a Democrat.

Hell, he could be President someday.

Well, all we can do is wait patiently, and hope for the best

Beta Rube, you might want to wait until the closer finishes up. Here's hoping

What's sad is the outside-Madison is so divided. IT should be 70/30 for Prosser.

When Dane county comes in it will be 8:1 Kloppenburg, so - this razor thin margin is not inspiring confidence in Prosser.

Don't forget all the Kloppenburg ballots, stuck in somebody's trunk somewhere, that just miraculously appear at the last minute.

Saw that Prosser is underperforming by 3.2% vs the primary according to Swing state project. He got 55.2% in the primary so he is projected to get around 52%. A nail biter.

Ashland, Bayfield, Clark, Crawford, Dodge, Fond du Lac, Grant, Green Lake, Iron, Lafayette, Langlade, Manitowoc..

"On TV, they seem to be pre-spinning a Kloppenburg loss..."

Well, of course. It's going to be a win for our new sense of "democracy" in either case. However, an actual win by this bizarrely self-righteous crowd—you know, like at the ballot box—would be close to insufferable.

Matthew said...

I doubt it will be fraud; it'll just be democracy deferred till exactly how much democracy is needed is known.

"The idea that there will be fraud in this election is preposterous."

Gambling? In this casino?? I'm shocked!

I am not saying that there WILL be fraud- but given that some of the city/county government buildings in Madison have PRO UNION signs in the windows for the last month makes some of us hillbillies outside of Madison a bit nervous that fraud COULD occur if it is close.

Guessing that Kloppy will pull away in the end though.

A year ago I'd have said that the chances for significant fraud in an election in Wisconsin were pretty low. But that was before the events of the last two months. Now, I'd say that the chances that the election results give the same outcome as the votes themselves is not great.

There's a judge in Dane County who would be happy to hold up the election if that's necessary.

No fraud? Well, it's possible there will be no fraud discovered. But that's a long way from there being no fraud. Who is counting the votes? Is it any more likely that they will be honest than the teachers who used fake doctors' excuses? The idea that there will be fraud is a far cry from preposterous, with all due respect to the Professor.

WV: Under. They just found 3 boxes of Klopp votes under a stack of fake doctors' excuses.

I've witnessed fraud with my own eyes here in Racine County. Folks bussed in from Illinois.

A boatload of votes just came in, Prosser's up, but Dane and Milwaukee are not reporting anything in the last hour or so.

I suspect that's correct.

Don't know that I'm necessarily a reliable source, but my family has a long history in Wisconsin and had been somewhat politically active (by that I mean off-and-on). I don't recall that voter fraud was ever a real issue or concern.

madawaskan said...

Milwaukee has discovered some more voter fraud with 10 more voter registration workers are being investigated by Wisconsin authorities. Fittingly, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel covered the story in its paper on August 29. Unfittingly, the Journal Sentinel forgot one, tiny aspect of the story... that the voter fraud was perpetrated by Democrats. In fact, one of the organizations, ACORN, is intimately linked with Barack Obama.

Milwaukee’s top election official said Thursday she plans to seek criminal investigations of 10 more voter registration workers, including two accused of offering gifts to sign up voters.
So, what we have here is an Old Media story about voter fraud where the salient fact that the fraud is being committed by Democrats and Democrat organizations is somehow absent from the story. What a surprise, eh?

Voter bribery, voter fraud, workers misrepresenting themselves with false driver's license numbers, fake Social Security numbers, there's lots of details in the story. Yet, the word Democrat never appears once in the story.

So, who was responsible for all this fraudulent registration?

All the workers were paid by two organizations running voter registration drives, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now and the Community Voters Project. Overall, 37 of the suspect workers were on the ACORN payroll, 11 were paid by the voters project and it’s not clear who employed the other one.
For those of you unaware, ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) is a far left group that is intimately linked with Barack Obama since his early days in the corrupt Chicago, Daley Democrat political machine. ACORN has given Obama much financial support over the last two decades. ACORN is also big on furthering the unAmerican thuggery of unions all across the nation. And that means they are strictly a Democrat organization... not that the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel wants anyone to know that.

So, what are the charges here?

Among the latest group, two ACORN workers are accused of offering pre-paid gasoline cards or restaurant gift cards to people in exchange for signing up to vote.
Edman said she wants Landgraf to look into whether the workers violated a state law that forbids offering cash or gifts to sway voters.
Eight voter project workers are suspected of making up information on voter applications, Edman said.
Among the workers previously referred to Landgraf, two are accused of submitting cards for dead voters.
Others appear to have submitted cards for people who said they never filled out an application or who were already registered, signed cards themselves, or falsified driver’s license numbers.
That's quite a laundry list. And, realize, this sort of Democrat fraud is happening all across the country in every major city. And it's all perpetrated by Democrats. Someone should pass this info on to the Journal Sentinel.

James said...

Back to a virtual tie now...the numbers are swinging wildly.

Badger Down Under said...

LaFollette has zero authority - everything is run by the local election officials, coordinated and (often) counted by count election officials. There are so many checks in place that it would be just about impossible to pull off any systematic fraud.

The previous reports of alleged fraud were almost entirely due to poor record keeping, people trying to vote in the wrong precinct, etc. Nothing like manufactured votes or plain old ballot stuffing. Just doesn't happen here.

If I', wrong (but I',m not), beers on the terrace are on me.

Carol_Herman said...

With 46% reporting, I saw Prosser leads by 52% to 48%. For Kloppenberg to win she has to nail Madison. And, it looks like the kids at the university weren't enthused enough to vote.

Once a "spread" of 4-points takes place, you'd need a whole lot of fraud to twist this one into Kloppenberg's column.

And, here we go. Kloppenburg is now only 2K behind on the AP results.

Inquiry finds evidence of fraud in election

Cast ballots outnumber voters by 4,609

By GREG J. BOROWSKI
gborowski@journalsentinel.com

Investigators said Tuesday they found clear evidence of fraud in the Nov. 2 election in Milwaukee, including more than 200 cases of felons voting illegally and more than 100 people who voted twice, used fake names or false addresses or voted in the name of a dead person.

Wow.

That's good news.

I don't think it's a good idea to accuse election fraud without a specific reason. I realize democrats have been convicted of election fraud an awful lot, and even when they haven't, several close elections have been settled in suspicious ways, but it's extremely corrosive to our republic to assume election fraud occurred. I think it's a good idea to wait until you actually have a very good reason to think it happened before that kind of thing is assumed.

KLDAVIS, it's not a good idea to extrapolate from precinct totals. Precincts can vary widely in size, so it's which precincts much more so than the total number of them.

KLDAVIS said...

N, with more than half of Milwaukee county's votes counted, Klopp only has 20k more votes than Prosser. There's also fewer than 100k more votes to report in Dane. Even if the rates in both stay the same, Klopp picks up +70k and what's left to count in Waukesha crushes that. Everyone can head to bed.

wv: bless. Indeed, bless the wise voters of the State of Wisconsin.

Yep, Lem my guy just took a second look at it.

Need the info... on that county Wisonsiners!

sane_voter said...

Prosser is now underperforming the primary by 2.3%. Projects to 52.9% of the vote.

ALH said...

Anyone know how conservative Fond Du Lac county is? Zero precincts reporting and it is a decent sized county...about 100K people I believe.

madawaskan said...

OK he wants to tranq dart me...

Now he's saying wait till 75% check.

Then wait till 80%...

Aaaaaaarrrrgh!

Titus said...

Prosser looks like a big bottom to me, not a top.

Maybe a bossy bottom though.

She's definitely held a hog, other than her own in her hand before.

Steven said...

Waukesha County votes conservative. Votes from there can bring it home for Prosser.

Patrick said...

WTF? Prosser up by 19,000?

J. Kloppenburg 486,752 49%

Beta Rube said...

Milwaukee is 90% reporting, and Waukesha and Fon Du Lac both skew quite conservative.

Lem said...

Prosser is ahead!!

2312/3630

James said...

Waukesha had approx 265K registered voters in 2008 and votes reliably Republican.

EnigmatiCore said...

Kloppenburg is back ahead.

The Grand Inquisitor said...

Hopefully the lesson of this election is that volatile, Rules of Radicals style, in your face electioneering is a two way street. Sure, the folks of Madison were pumped up, but the way they got there pumped up the rest of the state.

Had Kloppenburg condemned that ad with the molestation issue, I wonder what could have been. But so many people just don't think that kind of person would be a reliable judge. All those 'she's going to stop Walker' promises were not a good argument, even if they are all she had going for her.

I still don't know if Prosser will win, but I think the left in WI is ineffective.

Lem said...

Klopp slightly ahead again

2378/3630
514,475 50%
515,891 50%

TosaGuy said...

40 precints of Dane were counted to two of Waukesha during Klopps recent push into the lead--widened the Dane percentage. Still LOTS of Waukesha county out there

Titus said...

I still have not seen one hot guy in Madison since I have been here. So depressing.

Lem said...

2437/3630
526,708 50%
525,723 50%

Prosser ahead again..

n said...

KLDAVIS

I am not from WI, so I will bow to your insight....but 70K looks like a big margin to overcome to me.

Trust me...I hope you are right

Dewave said...

Has the dead vote been counted yet?

Should be a big boost for Kloppenberg when that comes in.

D.D. Driver said...

Still only about 25% of Waukesha reporting versus 75% of Dane. Prosser is doing surprisingly well in Milwaukee. Waukesha will bring it home.

ALH said...

Living in a relatively liberal area of Wisconsin (moderate compared to Madison), I'm thrilled to see Prosser's got a chance.

Developing. Crush . On . Waukesha.

sane_voter said...

Dane is 75% in and Prosser leads by 900 votes.

madawaskan said...

Is Prosser related to the famous tort law professor-Prosser?

EnigmatiCore said...

Kloppenburg ahead again.

Titus said...

Why hasn't Milwaukee ever been a fab. city? It's a notch above Detroit and a big notch below Minneapolis.

Gedaliya said...

I don't think there are enough votes left in Dane County to overcome the uncounted votes in Waukesha County.

KLDAVIS said...

More of MKE just reported too, and Klopp's % actually is down to 56% in the urban liberal stronghold. Current vote totals extrapolate to a total net of 24k votes for Klopp in MKE county. That's got to be disappointing for the Dems.

Lem said...

Kloppenburg ahead again.

no shes not..

2458/3630
528,480 50% P
527,535 50% k

The Grand Inquisitor said...

It's funny watching this Titus loser mumble nonsense in the corner, hoping to get some attention. Yes, I realize I just gave him what he needed, but who cares?

AJ Lynch said...

The air will be out of the govt worker union balloon if Prosser wins.

Cindy Martin said...

No report on Fond du lac yet. They ran out of ballots and extended the voting time. FDL is conservative.

Alex said...

Wow the ward results are coming fast and furious! Doesn't matter much to me if Kloppy wins as that only screws Wisconsin and not me.

Dewave said...

I don't think there are enough votes left in Dane County to overcome the uncounted votes in Waukesha County.

You make the rookie mistake of assuming the number of votes in a democratic stronghold is bound by the number of registered voters.

Titus said...

Kloppenberg has really bad hair.

James said...

Kloppenburg has her largest lead yet currently:

Supreme Court REPORTING 71%
Joanne Kloppenburg

552,053
50%
David Prosser (inc)

546,662
50%

Beta Rube said...

Titus is great fun and beyond reproach in these parts.

Milwaukee may seem lefty politically but the folks are otherwise boring and conservative.

I know, I'm one and I will never be close to fab.

AJ Lynch said...

Fond du lac- what a great name!

Reminds me of the name [which I forget] of that French town where Reagan gave his famous D-day commemoration speech?

Lem said...

It's funny watching this Titus loser mumble nonsense in the corner..

Titus is a longtime poster here.. his our beavis and buthead.

And one of the original thread crappers. Pun intended. He's just jealous of me because I have better bowels than he does.

Titus said...

Waukesha County is representing by James Sensenbrenner and he is amazing. I absolutely love him.

Drew said...

I'm absolutely certain some votes for Kloppenburg will be found in a car trunk tomorrow morning.
