    Results from precincts in 9 counties still out in court race

    By Don Walker of the Journal Sentinel
    Updated: April 6, 2011 7:36 a.m. | Unofficial statewide election returns compiled by The Associated Press in the hotly contested Wisconsin Supreme Court race indicate some precincts in at least nine counties have yet to be tallied.
    In counties as small as Ashland and Taylor and as large as Milwaukee and Dane, the AP does not have total election returns. Once tallied, that could prove to be a difference in the race between Justice David Prosser and Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg in the race.
    Prosser was leading by 585 votes statewide, according to the AP.
    Even with 99% of the vote counted, fewer than 600 votes - or about 0.04% of ballots - separated the two candidates. That would suggest a recount will be held with so few votes between the two.
    According to the AP tally, there are 486 total precincts in populous Milwaukee County, but only 474 have reported vote totals. ğRead Full

    OH, good lord. The margin doesn't even cover the amount of illegal democratic voters.
    You gotta know that at least 5000 votes were cast for the dums by people that were not eligable to vote.

    From NBC's Chuck Todd, Mark Murray, Domenico Montanaro, and Ali Weinberg
    *** The importance of quitting while you’re ahead… : If congressional Republicans should have learned any lesson from the budget showdown in Wisconsin, it was this: quit while you’re ahead. Despite being offered concession after concession on the budget -- as long as he didn’t touch collective-bargaining rights for public employees -- Gov. Scott Walker (R) went big for everything, including the collective bargaining rights. And he’s since paid a steep political price, even though the legislation ultimately passed. Walker’s poll numbers have plummeted. The legislation is now locked up in the courts. The Democratic opposition remains fired up (see last night’s elections in the state; more on them below). And the state appears headed for a slew of recall elections this spring and summer. The political lesson from Wisconsin: If you’re offered 70%-80% of what you want and will look like a hero in accepting the deal, take it. But if you go for everything, be prepared for the backlash.

    *** The Walker referendums: In the two Wisconsin races that were viewed by some as referendums on Gov. Walker, Democrats won one of them, and the other is too close to call (which actually is already a "victory" for Dems). In the contest to replace Walker as Milwaukee County executive, nonpartisan (but Dem-leaning) Chris Abele trounced Republican Jeff Stone. Abele aired a TV ad comparing Stone to Walker (Stone was quoted as saying that he and Walker share “similar aspirations,” while Walker had praised Stone). And in the higher-profile race for state Supreme Court, conservative incumbent David Prosser and liberal challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg remained essentially deadlocked. With 99% of the state's precincts reporting, per NBC’s John Yang, Prosser had a 585-vote lead out of more than 1.4 million ballots cast. A recount is likely.
    *** Wisconsin’s high turnout: Yet no matter the eventual outcome of the Prosser-Kloppenburg race, Democrats appear to have overperformed in these two contests. Indeed, Yang notes that Kloppenburg seems to have benefited from a very high turnout. In the liberal bastion of Madison, officials said turnout was about 70%, with Kloppenburg winning 73% of the vote there. In Eau Claire County -- where turnout was so heavy that polling places ran out of machine-readable ballots and had to use hand-counted ballots -- she won 58%. And in left-leaning Milwaukee County, where turnout was also driven by the county executive's race, Kloppenburg won 57% of the vote. Bottom line: Walker has polarized the state and could be a potential problem with swing voters.

    Looks like Eau Claire County will be awhile in turning in their vote totals because they are hand counting ballots.

    Kloppenburg just took over the lead 738,883 to 738,514

    NOthing like the DUMS cheating again.
    The sad thing is that both should be upholding the constitution.
    We all know the dum doesn't care and only acts on her personal communist beliefs.
    If she likes that so much she belongs in CUBA and should be charged with treason.

    Well, it doesn't look good for Justice Prosser, a 12 year veteran Supreme court Judge has lost the lead to a prosecuting attorney for the WI DNR, with no judicial experience.
    She IS the sportsmans worst nightmare.

    Team Obama threw everything they had at this.
    Over $3 million from out of state support.

    Ironically, she won't be able to vote on the union issue,.

    Legal challenges to the new law - which would eliminate most collective bargaining for most public employees - are expected to reach the high court, but it's not clear if the justices would take up the case before this race's winner is scheduled to be sworn in Aug. 1.

    I guess that would depend on when the Wisconsin Supreme Court takes up the union issue wouldn't it. If it was after August 1st why wouldn't she be able to vote on it assuming she wins which is still too close to call.

    They should just repass the law with 24 hours notice to the DUMS and shut them up.
    Not sure why they did not do this weeks ago.

    Because Walker doesn't have the votes to get it passed a second time.

    The 800 pound gorilla in the room is the Union. They've done an effective job of intimidating some of Walker's support.

    As the old saying goes, "People get the government they deserve". In this case, it is becoming obvious that the Union and not the voters run Wisconsin.

    Walker has done his part in trying to prevent Wisconsin from being the next Michigan or California. Leave it to the union to squeeze the lifeblood from the state's tax payers. This is what you get when workers are not free. Free to choose between being union or not.
    Collecting more taxes than is absolutely necessary is legalized robbery. Calvin Coolidge
