Wisconsin Recall Results Thread
Damn: Both Dems Hold

Polls close at 9, or, as they call it in Wisconsin, "8."

Then they will have results.

The Holperin race is the more winnable one, as Bush carried that district 53-47 over Kerry. The other one is always a Democratic district.

High turnout.

More workers are being sent out to address long lines at some polls in the city of Kenosha, where one of two Senate recall elections is being held Tuesday.

Meanwhile, strong turnouts were being reported in northern Wisconsin, site of the other election.

Hello! Via Nice Deb, Steve Eggleston says internal Republican polls have Simac (the Republican challenger) up four points over Holperin (the Democrat incumbent).

It's rare that they upset the incumbent applecart in pro-gun states (see endorsement of Reid, Harry), so hopefully they got the deer hunters to go vote.

28 The Wirch race is much like the Harsdorf race last week: the incumbent is going to win (unfortunately, this time), and the only question is how wide the margin is.

As for the SD-12 (Holperin/Simac), that should be a much closer race. Every poll I've seen so far has Holperin ahead by either a little, or if you believe the most recent PPP poll, a lot. I would generally be disinclined to believe PPP if it weren't for the fact that their recall polling for last week's races was actually quite good. I still think that if Holperin wins it won't be by nearly the margin that PPP has it, though (they had him getting 56%).

Reports of high turnout in northern WI (Holperin's district) seem like a good thing generally speaking, but it's worth remembering that two of our districts had INSANELY high turnout last week (Harsdorf and Darling), higher than the 2010 general election, and both were big wins for the good guys. So the typical nostrum that "high turnout favors the challenger" isn't something we should blindly assume. There may be a general "anti-recall" sentiment among voters that applies to both sides here.

Posted by: Jeff B. at August 16, 2011 08:55 PM (hIWe1)

29 Yeah, that's why I noted it.
I'm getting sick of the NRA's endorsing the incumbent democrats. We all know democrats vote in lock step on every important issue and we all know that democrats will be the party to try and outlaw guns, or nominate anti gun judges to the supreme court.
I stopped sending in my yearly membership due about 4 years ago. When they realize that one party supports guns rights, then maybe I'll come back into the fold.

Their pro-incumbent even if D strategy from 2010 pissed me of, but they were a single-issue org at the time. From the more recent editorials written by the prez, director, et al., they're hinting at a broader pro-freedom agenda going forward (while trying to maintain non-profit status). After the hell they caught from the rank and file after the '10 endorsements, I'd say they have no choice.

There's no outside money anymore and they may not have even organized a GOTV effort, I don't know.

I thought the polls didn't actually close until the Dems were finished stuffing the ballot boxes and driving off with a few dozen boxes of votes in their trunks, to be "discovered" after they know how many votes are needed to win. Like last time. And the time before that.

Look, I said that I expected Holperin to win in the end, but he won't win by that much. Remember Alberta Darling was down like 20% for most of the night because all the liberal precincts in Milwaukee reported first? Same idea here. In fact, Simac's best districts (in Lincoln County) probably won't be in for awhile because they're being hand-counted. It's a HUGE (geographically), rural district.

There were three, but the geniuses in the WI GOP couldn't get the needed number of signatures for the best candidate vs Dave Hansen, even though they had no problem getting 10,000 valid signatures for the recall to begin with.

No, it's looking like we will pick up 0 out of 2. But I can live with that, too! Because we're still in the pilot seat, and frankly it's the result I expected anyway.

Are you retarded? The GOP won four out of the six last week. If they lose both tonight, that makes them 4/9. And the Dems won 5/9, which only nominally looks good. In reality they blew $35 million of the union's last remaining money to fail to regain control of any lever of government.

It's a huge clusterfuck for the Democrats, not a victory. Try harder, Greg.

yourself out. Both Hansen and Holperin are goners if there is any kind
of decent WI GOP leadership. With Preibus gone, there is none.

Dude, I'm just questioning your transparently wrong numbers. How did the Dems win 7 out of 9 when, in fact, they will have only won 5 out of 9 if they take both tonight?

I understand the idea of trolling us for your own enjoyment. But you make yourself look dumb when you simply state incorrect facts in order to make your trollish statements.

And at the end of the day, as PPP's (the same PPP you praise) polling of WI Dems indicated today, they are hugely disillusioned and disappointed about the recall elections. Their measure of victory was the same as ours: retaking the State Senate. They failed. So nothing you write here tonight is really going to sting us. I had actually FORGOTTEN there was an election tonight until I read a reminder somewhere else.

Mock the troll but do not engage it directly. Talk about the troll as if
it weren't in the room. Takes all the fun out of trolling.

Not really. Greg is a graffiti-ist. He just wants to have his posts littering the thread.

Did someone think it would be amusing to let it back in here?

Please re-ban!

308 OT yes. I
know,but just can't help myself-Rove is an EPIC douche-just epic and his raising doubts about Perry just cemented my vote for him. I confess a little teeny bit of worry about being a Bush Medicare part D shill like the others,but the Rove semi jab pretty much put the kabosh on that one-anything Rove is against I feel compelled to be for-I am thin king of tea party candidates whose teams he jumped on and then they suddenly tanked- a real Trojan horse is that one

Yeah, we all were. Very disappointing.The bigger issue here is this has taught the Dems that this recall thing is available and easy to do. They'll be recalling their hearts out for years to come. I feel sorry for the people of Wisconsin because their whole lives will be endless politics.

Yes, indeed. Good observation. Just sickens me that Dems never seem to pay for their political misdeeds (fleebaggers), while Repubs ALWAYS seem to. We lost two seats now because of this recall fever and two Repubs who couldn't stop being jackasses in their personal lives.
