Election Wrap-Up (Update: Smith Wins in Oregon)

John on November 5, 2008 at 9:25 am

Several of those Senate races are tight, but as of now with 100% of precincts reporting Al Franken lost by just over 500 votes. Minnesota has an automatic recount law which means Al has about a month to try and steal this thing. I’m predicting he’ll fail.

Saxby Chambliss beat his challenger in Georgia, but because he dropped below 50% by a few thousand votes he’ll have to face a runoff election in December.

Looks like Gordon Smith is going to lose by a few thousand votes. [Correction: Gordon Smith wins by 907 votes!]

And the really strange one…convicted Senator Ted Stevens is ahead in Alaska with 99% reporting.

So if I had to guess, I’d say 58 is the Dems final number in the Senate, but watch Minnesota.

In California, prop 8 passed which is good to see.

I think the most astounding result has to be the comparison of prop 2 and prop 4. Prop 2 protects chickens from being confined in too small a space. Prop 4 required parental notification before a minor could have an abortion. Californians voted to protect the chickens, but not the unborn babies (or the rights of parents to know their children are undergoing a dangerous medical procedure).

If only teenage girls gave birth to chickens, perhaps the idiots in the voting population would get it.
