The Vote Swings: Prosser now leading Kloppenberg


It was announced at 2:18 p.m. by the Journal Sentinel that Prosser now leads Kloppenberg by a total of 40 votes.

The folks over at Hot Air mentioned an interesting idea.  I’ll let you read it for yourselves….

See for yourself by comparing the official county results with the AP’s election night page. Combined, the two candidates picked up more than a thousand votes, which makes me wonder how often this race might seesaw as other officials re-canvass and update their numbers. I wish I had time to start poring through the clerk pages ofWisconsin’s counties to compare their results to the AP’s, but I’ll leave it to the Hot Air faithful to crowdsource that and report back.

Oh, the joys of the internet!  Hey, I’d like to get in this piece of activity.  I have an hour or two this afternoon that I can invest it in.  If I find anything I’ll just attach it to this thread.

Anyone else interested?

Quite a few conservatives are a little “peeved” that the WI Republicans haven’t already tackled voting reform here in WI.
Also, some are questioning why conservative counties are reported their canvas totals while some lib strongholds are waiting. Hope there isn’t a replay of Franken in MN!
If here is I hope that Walker and Van Hollen (State Attorney General) take some action if this occurs.

I pulled this from a Madison tv station website (
All 72 Wisconsin counties are canvassing results to make them official. They have until April 15 to submit those totals to the state for certification. The candidates then have three business days to ask for a recount. I don’t know if Dane County or Milwaukee County reported yet. These two counties combined gave Kloppenberg almost 115,000 more votes than Prosser. This might give you some ideas about original results:

GREAT pic beaglescout!
Dems in WI are still talking (back with the 204) that this was a clear repudiation of Walker’s policy and that the Republicans should change their views to fall in line with the “people.”,0,5331733.story
