Wisconsin Recall Election - #3950 - Michael Barone's Re-Weighted Wisconsin Results: Obama 48, Romney 48 - Hot Air (2) Wisconsin County-by-County Election Map Shows How Dominating Walker's Victory Was - The Blaze (3) 88% of Obama's 2008 Over $200.00 Donors AWOL in 2012 - Redstate

O’s showing against Romney in the exits was the one tiny bit of hope that MSNBC clung to late last night, to the point where Lawrence O’Donnell said, with a straight face, that the big winner in Wisconsin had been … Obama. Here’s Michael Barone stealing the last little bit of their candy: The Wisconsin exit poll evidently reported the race for governor in the recall ballot as 50%-50%. With 92% of the vote in, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s excellent website reports the score as 54%-46% Walker. Let’s say that’s the final results: only 13% of precincts from Milwaukee County and 3% of precincts from Madison’s Dane County — the Democrats’ two reservoirs of big majorities — remain uncounted. It has been emblazoned on mainstream media that the exit poll also showed Barack Obama leading Mitt Romney in the state 51%-45%. But if you think the exit poll was 4% too Democratic — and that’s in line with exit poll discrepancies with actual vote results over the last decade, as documented by the exit poll pioneer, the late Warren Mitofsky* — that result looks more like 49%-47% Romney. Or assume the remaining Milwaukee County precincts whittle Republican Governor Scott Walker’s margin over Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett to 53%-47%, which looks likely, the Obama-Romney numbers would look like 48%-48%.  Read more.......



Wisconsin County-by-County Election Map Shows How Dominating Walker's Victory Was - The Blaze - Tuesday night, Gov. Scott Walker won Wisconsin (again), and by a wider margin than he did in 2010. Seven points was the final spread against challenger Tom Barrtett. But this county-by-county map shows exactly how crushing a victory it truly was:Progressives in WI may indeed have something to cry about.  To see larger image.......


88% of Obama's 2008 Over $200.00 Donors AWOL in 2012 - Redstate - This is one of the more amusing factoids that you’re going to read this morning: “According to a BuzzFeed analysis of campaign finance data, 88% of the people who gave $200 or more in 2008 — 537,806 people — have not yet given that sum this year. And this drop-off isn’t simply an artifact of timing. A full 87% of the people who gave $200 — the sum that triggers an itemized report to the Federal Elections Commission — through April of 2008, 182,078 people, had not contributed by the end of last month. It’s a factoid that is subject to some interpretation, of course. Certainly the Obama for America campaign is in full-fledged meltdown/spin mode on the subject; they’re pointing out that those people could be contributing less than $200*. Which could very well be true.  Read more........
