New Math?

screen shot

This a screen shot from CNN’s results page.

For some reason whoever is writing the blurbs isn’t reading the results, or doesn’t understand that larger numbers are better than smaller numbers.

When I checked a little later, 21% of the precincts reporting and the percentages were: Hoffman 43%, Owens 52%, and Scozzafava 5%.

It makes a lot of difference where the results are from, as the more rural districts tend to be more conservative than the towns.

Update: It looks like Obama lost in New Jersey and Virginia, but the special election in NY was a matter of local issues. It must be that way, because all of the pundits are saying it. 😈

And the fact that Corzine’s popularity rating was at around 30% because he was more corrupt than Tony Soprano, and the Democratic candidate in Virginia was a hillbilly from rural western Virginia with no (zero) appeal to urban Democratic voters, had *nothing* to do with it… it was all about Obama, yessir! 😉

They were a couple of losers, party hacks who offered nothing to make people want to get off the sofa and bother to vote.

Owens had no chance in NY until the teabaggers made people mad.

The Dems just can’t remember how to get out the vote, if they aren’t in a city.
