December 12, 2017

2 people watching the election results — on 2 different channels, at different locations — just told me they can tell the newspeople already know Roy Moore will win.

I wasn't watching the election results yet. I was finishing that last post.

Meade was watching Fox News, and he just started talking about how he could tell by the way they were talking that they are seeing some sort of information — which they're not revealing — that shows them Roy Moore will win.

A minute later, I got a text from my son Chris, saying "The tone of the punditry on CNN makes me think they know he'll win."

UPDATE: NYT declares Jones the winner!

Hmmmmmmm.

Dont pull a "Hillary" and begin to presume too much prior to actual votes are counted.

Hillary and LLR Chuck did that and look at them now.

Sebastian said...

I'm sure Moore's election will damage the GOP a bit, but if this pans out we'll at least get another evening of MSM long faces and dejection. Worth it if only for that. Just as we'll always have November 2016.

donald said...

If the CNN hacks aren’t dancing on the ceiling you know Jones just may have won.

I’m firmly convinced that the commies want him to win. They need the issue.

They literally have nothing else.

I wonder: For all the "Yay Democrats are the party of morality now!" people: Exactly how do you explain Bob Menendez and the worshipping of the Kennedy family; plus Bill Clinton?

Anyone accusing Moore and Republicans is easily shut up by asking them why Bob Menendez, who literally raped girls younger than Moore is accused of merely dating, still has a Senate seat? And why hasn't the Kennedy family been burned to the ground yet?

And Roman Polanski, newly revealed to have raped a 10 year old... to the thundering standing ovation from the left. And who can forget Matt Laurer, who literally locked women into his rape room office, and the massive, massive support from our "betters" on the left?

Correct. Those folks in Alabama should just vote for whichever Senator whacks his young squueze, like Massachusetts.

You guys keep setting that expectation. Will make waking up to 58-62 Republican seats in November and the liberal tears that much sweeter.

And that's the pessimistic range.

We’ll see. It ain’t over until the last Democrat election judge mysteriously discovers a box of uncounted ballots, all marked for Jones, in her trunk.

wwww said...

If the Republican doesn't win in Alabama it would be shocking. Normally races are 20 points apart.

It would be beyond shocking. Barely 17% of the Alabama white vote went for the Democrat in 2012.

Rick said...

It ain’t over until the last Democrat election judge mysteriously discovers a box of uncounted ballots, all marked for Jones, in her trunk.

Al Franken has been in the news lately.

Mike Sylwester said...

Franken was compelled to resign because the Democratic Party's polling predicted that Moore was sure to win.

That's the same reason why Beverly Young Nelson was compelled to admit that she forged Moore's annotation on her yearbook.

wwww said...

Alabama is a politically diverse state.

Depending on which counties come in first, could pull someone out in front who isn't going to win. You need to know the benchmarks to look for to make a good guess.

eric said...

I don't think they know who will win. So whatever face they are pulling will change as they start to get an idea.

Given that fox had Jones at +10 and someone else had Moore at +9, I'm pretty sure that means no one knows anything.

The only thing we do know is if Jones wins, their will be a lot of celebrating in the news rooms across America and among life long Republicans and #nevertrump.

cronus titan said...

Bear in mind that not one of those people have any idea what they are talking about but that does not prevent them from expressing strong opinions. John Kerry was a landslide winner when the polls closed. Hillary had over a 90% chance of victory when the polls closed. If we learned nothing else from recent history, believe nothing the press says or the way they act. Nothing.

In the case of a Jones win it will be fun to watch LLR Chuck act upset about a democrat pickup. It will be an Oscar-worthy performance!

Mark said...

No thanks to the Republicans. If that happens, it will only be for the same reason as Moore winning this one -- because they are not Dems, who are even worse and more dangerous to the country. It will be because the Republicans are hated just a little bit less than the Dems.

john said...

In the media this is going to go like Georgia-6, which went from a total referendum on Trump, to, well it doesn't really matter it's only Georgia.

Unfortunately for Trump, a Moore win will set him back on that Democrat senate majority he's been working on.

Luke Lea said...

I live in a southern red state and am a lifelong Democrat (though I voted for Trump). One reason Jones might beat Moore tonight is that it is a rare chance for a Democrat's vote to actually make a difference in the final outcome. That should boost Democratic turnout.

Early returns tend to be city and absentee. Trend D

The black vote will be D.

eric said...

Hugh Hewitt's hot take 15 minutes ago on Twitter:

Looks like a Doug Jones win. Social desirability bias triumphs again. (Unless you have been tutored by @SeanTrende, many in MSM will be gobsmacked. Yes, I called this two weeks ago.).

Now I hope Moore wins just so I can laugh at Hugh.

Angel-Dyne said...

Jones, Moore, it's all good. Or bad. The upsides or downsides for either kinda cancel each other out, as far as I can see. I suspect certain Dems will be even be a wee bit disappointed by a Moore loss.

Rick said...

Late returns tend to be rural

Early / late tends to be driven by the size of the precinct. Large precincts have have people in line at closing more often causing the counting to start later, and the higher numbers mean the validation process takes longer.

So late returns tend to be urban. This is not as pronounced in AL as it is in some states.

Big Mike said...

I’ll give Bannon credit — his lack of vetting w. r. t. Moore turned what should have been a boring special election into a nail-biter.

FullMoon said...

Just looked at Maddow. She is explaining why Moore is going to win: white people.

Kinda funny, as only other time I have seen Maddow is the youtube vids of her transition from euphoria to depression last November. She is very animated.

@Sebastian, I’ve been thinking about what you wrote, and IMAO the damage was 99% done when Moore won the nomination. Not much to be lost by electing him at this point.

The NYT model has Jones with a 66% chance of winning.

They are both hitting or exceeding their benchmarks in "their" counties. So, they are both where they need to be. That's why we don't know yet.

Isn't this also true if Jones wins?

I am pretty sure Alabama has a large majority of white people.

eric said...

Some 538 benchmarks stolen from Pajamas Media

Benchmarks:

FiveThirtyEight's Dave Wasserman:

Houston County is now completely in. Moore won by 23.5 points, my estimate was that he needed to win by 16. But that’s also his base.

And Harry Enten:

Randolph is now completely in. Moore won by 30. His benchmark was to win by 25 points.

Don't forget, though — this is far from over.

donald said...

There’s gonna be another election for this state in November.

The current governer was an imbecile for scheduling this, seeing as how she had a choice if I recall correctly.

wwww said...

no, like 100% of the African American population needs to vote for Jones in order for Jones to win. The African American population is about a quarter of the population.

Alabama is racially very split -- MUCH more so then a lot of other states. Something like 17% of white people voted for Obama.

The southern states were often 1 party states. The primary is the "real" race. Or, it usually is -- that's why this is strange that we don't know yet.

eric said...

Jones beat his benchmark too:

A bit of good news for Jones: Russell is now all reporting. He needed to win by about 26% there, and he won it by 30%. #ALSEN

Great NYT projection now has Jones at 76% chance of winning. Amazing.

Kansas City said...

Shows media still has power in some circumstances. Washington Post essentially took down Moore.

Rob said...

It's too early to say for sure, but it appears that the problem is that the Eastern elites didn't condescend enough to Alabama voters. They made the same mistake in 2016 in the battleground states. In 2018 and 2020, they need to really emphasize how stupid anybody who supports Trump or the Republicans is. That'll do the trick.

Big Mike said...

@Howard, I read that too.

eric said...

Lot's of dueling opinions on twitter. RCP is saying the New York Times is off it's rocker. 538 is saying turnout is down and Jones looks good to win this thing.

People now seem to be getting bullish on a Jones win.

New York Times now has it at 90% for Jones.

Rick said...

Moore wins by at least 5, maybe more.

Rick said...

The NYT has a graphic for the precincts not reporting and they're overwhelmingly Birmingham and Montgomery.

Huh?

How does it jump back and forth like that? I mean, once you get up to 90%, if you jump back to the 60's, you're just making stuff up.

538 saying the early B-ham results from Black sections. May still turn in Roy's favor.

True, but 538 is saying (Or maybe it's Decision Desk) that the rest of the votes are in heavily Democrat areas.

Daniel Jackson said...

CNN is reporting 52.1 percent for Moore, 46.5 percent for Jones, and 14 percent write-ins with about 57 percent precinct reporting.

Interesting horse race, as it were.

Rick said...

538 has an interesting graphic up, but it's by county instead of precinct so ultimately it's useless. I can't believe they haven't built a model precinct by precinct yet.

Richard Dolan said...

Yes, indeed, the yellow dog will win.

Daniel Jackson said...

Sorry. that's 1.4 percent write-ins. link here: http://edition.cnn.com/election/2017/results/alabama-senate?q=2017embed

Drago said...

Madison, Jefferson and Mobile counties have lots of votes out still. Heavily democrat.

Howard said...

eric: yes, however, democrat precincts in BHam reporting first, so the prediction % tanked

Qwinn said...

Lotsa ballots remain to be stuffed, apparently

Big Mike said...

Turnout seems to be the difference. Based on what 538 is reporting, percentage-wise Moore is doing very well in rural areas, but the turnout is low so he’s netting fewer votes than he needs to offset the urban areas of the state. Percentage-wise Jones is doing poorer than expected in black areas, but turnout is high so he nets more votes. If the Times is right about where votes are still to come in — Huntsville (heavy federal government employment so tends Democrat), Tuscaloosa (college town), Montgomery, and Birmingham — then Alabama 2017 replicates Indiana 2012, where an idiot extremist candidate blew the race to the Democrat in a very red state.

Rick said...

Jones now within 20k votes, was down 50k.

Mac McConnell said...

Moore will lose this.

Every prediction I'm seeing is showing Jones winning this thing.

Not all early returns are urban, and therefore "D"

In The D (Detroit,) it takes them all night to count the votes. (And they still can't get it right.) I'm convinced that they wait to see how many votes are needed for the right candidate to win.

You need to look at the benchmarks in specific counties.

The problem with those benchmarks is that they are based on percentages, rather than actual numbers. And lower turn out for Moore makes his meeting those benchmarks no good for Moore.

Moore didn't stay close enough in Dem urban countries he was expected to lose. Moore loses, as of 9:04 it's 49 % to 49% with over 75% of the vote tabulated.

Why would you say this? Have you been living in a cave for the last 5 weeks? Moore has been bashed from pillar to post by all parties and most media. Trump came on board late. Maybe you're just trolling here.

Judging by the numbers and exit polls (assuming they're accurate) it was mostly that a massive chunk of the Reps. just sat it out. The votes for Jones are pretty much matching up with the votes for Hillary.

With 82% of the precincts reporting Jones has a slight lead. Most of the roughly 400 precincts still to report lean Democrat. I think this election is over. Bannon needs to be educated with a baseball bat applied to his skull.

Hey, you asked me why I was surprised. That's why.

I thought Moore would win by 4-5 points, which would still be very unusual for Alabama. This seat should go for the R by 700,00 votes. I'm stunned it's still a race this late.

Okay. Mitch better bring home the legislation if he is so finicky. I want to see some wins! Good luck with that, Mitch.

The big question to this is 'How fast is Gloria (Wicked Witch of the East) Allred getting out of town now that the election is over' and 'How quickly is this woman going to drop her law suit now that she is able to join the 'Lois Lerner Employment Track'.

Steve Bannon supported Mo Brooks in the primary, not Roy Moore.

FIDO said...

A deep red state like Alabama, unbelievable!! I’m actually blown away, I thought for sure Moore would win. Thank you Republican women who stayed home or voted for Jones.

Because in Inga-land, only women can have principles.

Inga said...

“See, I knew that if Moore lost, our resident lefties woukd stop labeling all Republicans as pedophile supporters.”

Oh no I don’t think so. No one will forget what a bunch of assholes you were regarding the victims of Roy Moore. It’s women who pulled off this Jones win, suburban Republican women. And black Democratic voters, thank you!

Hagar said...

Mitch McConnell and the GOPe are going to regret this.

FIDO said...

Wait wait. There is only a discrepancy of 10,000 votes. What Moore should do is a Gore and call for manual recounts ONLY in heavily Republican districts and a Franken, where he randomly opens car trunks until he magically finds boxes of votes to push him over the top.

Granted, voting fraud in Alabama is slightly harder since they require voter ID and citizenship to vote. Plus you are only allowed to vote once.

So perhaps Moore is out of luck.

Howard said...

DickinBimbosintheRain: I voted for Perot, twice, yet get blamed for electing Bubba Tubba the Serial Rapist. In politics, outcomes matter. By backing the non-GOPe guy, Moore was able to slip in through the back door. Nice.

Qwinn said...

As of this morning, more Alabamians thought Moore "probably" did what he was accused of than thought he was innocent.

The single and only piece of evidence supporting the allegations was a doctored yearbook signature. Not "allegedly" doctored. Actually altered and presented as Moore's writing by her accuser.

"Believe all women, even ones that admit to forging evidence" is apparently the rule now.

And Menendez is still a Senator.

FIDO: If Moore contests, that would be a Democrat Whet Cream Dream

"It's a great, great night for anybody who hates Bannon."

How so? I'm certainly no Bannon fan, but it looks like the Republicans lost a critical seat. I can't see how revenge on Bannon equates to a win for the Republican party.

No Chuck, it's an embarrassing night showing that Republicans will overwhelmingly vote for a dipshit child molester because "R"

Sorry. I've done it. I voted for Trump because "R." I would not have voted for Moore. I won't support another Bannon candidate. Including Trump.

Anyway, so much for Bannon's primary challenge to every incumbent Republican in the Senate, save for Ted Cruz. He couldn't win Alabama! He couldn't hold Alabama!

Moore needs to sue Allred.

Ted Stevens never found out that the charges against him were trumped up literally by a prosecutor and investigator having an affair who hated him, because he died.

Now that the election is over, there is no reason for Allred to be coy.

I don't know if this was the best, worst or meh-est outcome, but it appears that yes. You can just lie to the press and let them run with it.

Dr Weevil said...

And no one will forget what an asshole Inga is, insisting that Moore is a pedophile, refusing to follow the links to the evidence that the accusations against him are based on obvious forgeries, and even accusing a fellow commenter of "diddling 14 year olds" because he had shown her to be a fool by his arguments. She herself demonstrates that women sometimes lie through their teeth when accusing others of pedophilia, and now she gloats that her fellow Democrats lies helped them steal an election. What a disgusting (barely) human being she is. I suppose being Inga is its own punishment.

walter said...

Ah..so Chuck has decided his next prez vote already.
Noted.

Big Mike said...

Big Mike this is at the feet of Mitch McConnell and the RNC.

@Mac McConnell, the Hell it is! As much as I hate the sort of limousine liberals I used live among -- the sort who praised the diversity of the local high school but were careful to send their daughter to Holton Arms -- I despise the Mac McConnell and Steve Bannon sort of Republicans even more. You don't take what you can get and come back for more, you gotta put up dingbats like Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock and now Roy Moore to try to get everything all at once with a very weak candidate who's sure to blow it. So to get anything done Mitch McConnell now has to negotiate with grandstanders like John McCain and Susan Collins to preserve his 51-49 edge instead of having a 54-46 margin to work with. Yeah, gonna have lots of wins with that breakdown. Get it through that thing you jokingly call a brain that politics is not a 100% win sort of thing. You take what you can get. I remember Connie Morella in Montgomery County, Maryland, back in the day. Very liberal, but I supported her and was glad to do so because she was as far right as ever could be elected in Montgomery County. That's called maturity; try it sometime.

Good Gawd! You've got me agreeing the Chuck. Now I REALLY despise you.

steve uhr said...

Quinn -- look up the word "evidence". Eye witness testimony by the victim of a crime is evidence. Pretty strong evidence at that.

Howard said...

Jones victory speech...Never saw Jones before. He looks like Elmer Fudd with a bad combover

FullMoon said...

The big question to this is 'How fast is Gloria (Wicked Witch of the East) Allred getting out of town now that the election is over' and 'How quickly is this woman going to drop her law suit now that she is able to join the 'Lois Lerner Employment Track'.

Funny to see if this principle survives the election.


She will be back, with new underage accusations for the next election. Dems will consider this a winning tactic, because it worked.

Inga said...

“What a disgusting (barely) human being she is.”

Poor loser, the insect.

Mac McConnell said...

All Republicans lost big tonight, everything on their agenda is now in jeopardy.
