10 pm: Iowa, Nevada, & the West

posted at 9:31 pm on November 6, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

If you’ve gotten this far without either popping champagne corks or cerebral arteries, the toughest of the two major swing states are next up for us.  Iowa has been too close to call through a number of polls, but Nevada’s been leaning toward Obama — even though the population contains a significant Mormon vote that should swing to Romney.  With any luck, Romney ends up not needing either state; if he does, this might be a tough night.

For Iowa, you can get updates on voting results from Twitter by following the Secretary of State’s account.  Otherwise, you can brave slow load times by going directly to the results page on their website.  In Nevada, they don’t have a Secretary of State — they have the Cashier’s Window.  Just kidding! Nevada’s SoS has a very nice web page set up to display the data as well as map the results as they come in.

Update, 9:56 ET: Nothing much to report on my section of the country, but Iowa closes in a few minutes.  The paths for a Romney win have all been eliminated except FL-NC-VA-OH and either Colorado or Iowa.  This thread may not make too much difference overall, but Iowa might still be important.

Update: An interesting point:

With so much voter dissatisfaction, it’s interesting that we’re on the cusp of keeping the status quo in the House, Senate, and White House.

Update: Not sure what this means:

Doesn’t sound as though CBS wants to make a call, but Iowa only has 11% of precincts reporting.

Update: Minnesota isn’t on my beat, ironically, but it’s worth mentioning that the early returns show both the voter-ID and traditional marriage constitutional amendments trailing, with about 41% Yes for each.

Update: The New York Post has a cheerier take:

Arizona has a key Senate race, but I expect Jeff Flake to win that pretty easily, too.

Update: Colorado is also not my beat, but this isn’t good news:

Harsanyi’s there on the ground.

Update, 11:04 ET: Pacific & Mountain Time calls for Romney: ID, MT, WY, UT, AZ.  For Obama: WA, CA.  Still not called: NV, OR.

Update: Jim Geraghty works out the numbers and discovers that elections aren’t exactly efficient:

Imagine what it would cost to flip California!

Update: CBS calls Iowa for Obama:

That’s been trending all hour, so it’s no surprise — but with Fox calling Ohio for Obama, it’s not very important.

Note to future Senate candidates…completely avoid any and all statments on rape. That’s two Senate seats lost to clumsy rape comments.

AngusMc on November 6, 2012 at 10:11 PM

Give me a break. Paul Ryan used almost the same language in a bill he and Akin co-sponsored. Fact is legitimate rape as opposed to consensual statutory rape is very very stressful making conception much more difficult but not impossible as Akin even said.

Steveangell on November 6, 2012 at 10:24 PM

So you can your ultra conservative in Akin. Not working out all that well, is it?

Unfortunately for you, no more than one percent of Amercians share your scientific ignorance on rape and pregnancy. By demonstrating his primitive level of scientific knowledge, Akin demonstrated to Independent voters that he was unfit for office. Thus he lost.

If you look at voter registration. Republicans never get over 40%. If you run cavemen, they won’t attract independents and they will lose. It is more possible to win without the 1% of Americans that are so backward they believe it is more difficult to get pregnant from rape than it is to win without the double digits of independents.

Why don’t you go out and form the “You Can’t Get Pregnant From Rape Party.” You can run really really conservative candidates. Have them run on the slogan “No abortions even in the case of rape or incest.” Have that be their main platform. You will never get a single candidate elected.

World-Herald: Romney takes 2nd District
Share

Republican Mitt Romney will get all five of Nebraska’s electoral votes. Obama will not duplicate his 2008 prize of taking one electoral vote from Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District. Obama is underperforming both Democratic Senate candidate Bob Kerrey and House candidate John Ewing in Douglas County and losing badly in heavily Republican western Sarpy Count. Obama will have to reach 270 without the 2nd District.

steebo77 on November 6, 2012 at 10:41 PM

That’s not to say they should have nominated someone else from the clown car. Santorum would have gotten…well, look what happened to Akin and Mourdoch. And the rest of them were on a book tour.

The point is, they needed a deeper bench. Mitt Romney is running a replay of Bob Dole, Bush Sr, Ford, and Dukakis and Kerry for good measure. He played defense well because he had no other choice, but that’s no substitute for a good offense.

HitNRun on November 6, 2012 at 10:36 PM

You are wrong about Santorum.

Mitt jumped all over Akin and Mourdock perhaps he would have done the same but it would have then been sour grapes.

We have immigrated ourselves out of capitalism and into a mixed economy. I do not begrudge blacks voting for a black man. I don’t begrudege hispanics voting for the candidate that is for amnesty. But the reality is they are NOT voting for race. They are voting for Obama because they want free stuff. We have reached critical mass of low lifes. They are disporportionately racial minorities and low info welfare single mothers. This is not Romney’s fault, who was a great candidate. We are demographically screwed.

Ted Torgerson on November 6, 2012 at 10:28 PM

This is the reality that Republicans are too terrified of to even talk about. “B-b-but I’m not racist!”

Karl Rove was the “genius” who wanted to mass import a new population from Latin America because “they’re religious, family people who will vote Republican.” You can’t get more destructively, idiotically wrong than that.

Django on November 6, 2012 at 10:44 PM

ON THE BRIGHT SIDE…

Joe Biden has to be the favorite for the democrat nomination in 2016.

And more good news….he might just win.

And hey Paul Ryan…..I guess college kids want to keep looking up at those fading Obama posters. Because now they’ll NEED to stay home because they won’t be able to find jobs.

Rio Linda Refugee on November 6, 2012 at 10:44 PM

This post will probably get lost amid all the “noise”, but here goes:

I know it’s not over yet and we should all remember 2000 & 2004.

However, like others here, I am almost literally in shock because I really did believe that this would be a Romney landslide.

It is beyond depressing that after 4 years of a worsening economy, increased unemployment, increased national debt and decreased respect on the world stage…

…that after 4 brutal years ANYONE would vote for Obama.

IF Obama goes on to victory, we should not tear each other apart or rip on Romney. With everything that has happened in the last 4 years we should have been able to run a deaf, dumb pinball wizard and won easily.

I was not a Romney supporter at first but he grew on me and most certainly looked and acted presidential (especially during and after the debates). While he didn’t run a perfect campaign, I thought he ran a very good one (especially after the debacle that was McCain).

IF Obama goes on to victory, I suppose we need to come to grips that for the majority of Americans the country simply hasn’t failed enough to warrant them to wake up and vote appropriately.

I just wonder (and worry…a lot!) about our country during the next 4 years.

My thoughts toward my country are similar to the famous tagline of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre: who will survive and what will be left of them?

But there’s still hope, waning as it is. And hopefully I’ll wake up to a very pleasant surprise.

Until then, let’s stop entertaining the trolls and stop ripping at each other.

Religious_Zealot on November 6, 2012 at 10:44 PM

The state of the race right now is the Senate is still under control of the Dems. The House is still under control of the GOP. And Romney’s on life support in his pursuit of the White House. He can still pull it off, but he’s neck-and-neck in FL, VA, NC, OH, and CO and has to win all of them.

We may wake up tomorrow with the federal government’s makeup virtually unchanged aside from the names.

Well, on the plus side, the GOP only has to wait 4 years to get another chance to run an actual (not-severe) conservative for the Presidency, instead of 8, so there is that. Given that the GOP will almost certainly nominate Jeb Bush in 2016, it isn’t much of a silver lining, but whatever.

Hopefully the GOP will finally come to its collective senses and beg Palin or Jindal to run. Or at least bother finding a governor who can run on their own record, instead of running from it.

But the rinos will probably just spend the next few weeks making excuses for Mittens, and blaming Akin and the social cons for his loss. I’ve yet to see a rino blame his loss on his record of liberalism, but maybe this time will be different.

PatriotGal2257 on November 6, 2012 at 10:44 PM

That’s the one I’ve been looking at. It still shows Wisconsin up in the air. Romney is ahead in electoral as well as popular votes. It will be interesting to see how it compares to Fox’s map.

I’m betting every voting machine was calibrated in swing states w/10,000 votes pre-programmed. I’m not kidding. If 0 wins it’s fraud. Period.

This entire race is going to come down to some guy named Dave.

John the Libertarian on November 6, 2012 at 10:50 PM

Well, it can still be done.

the_nile on November 6, 2012 at 10:48 PM

Indeed.

So, anyone jumping on the Christie ’16 bandwagon yet? ;)

Then suffer.

I will, though it’ll be with some Spice-Coated Rack of Lamb for Two with Arugula, Avocado, and Blood Orange Salad.

Todd Akin’s selfishness again sinks an easy Senate pick-up. In my opinion his selfishness is as morally reprehensible to the unborn as any Planned Parenthood abortion mill. People across the GOP ideological spectrum begged him to depart the race.

matthew8787 on November 6, 2012 at 10:50 PM

Mitt jumped all over Akin and Mourdock perhaps he would have done the same but it would have then been sour grapes.

Scott Walker won Wisconssin as would have Santorum.

I don’t know what Scott Walker’s position is on abortion, rape, or gay marriage, and the fact that I don’t know his position demonstrates that he’s nothing at all like Santorum.

Akin and Mourdoch weren’t on the radar as divisive SoCons until they shot off their mouths. Santorum would make those two look like heroin-shooting bisexual hedonists. They certainly wouldn’t have won if Romney helped them. You’re right that they might have won with Santorum on the ticket, though: his total inability to turn away a question about sex issues would have completely overshadowed their remarks.

IA and/or CO does it!

Neither Iowa or Colorado’s polling were very close for Romney. That’s not going to happen,

The problem is that Mitt is not going to be beyond the margin of fraud and he won’t fight for it.

People are acting like it’s over, quit it. It’s not. 175 R 163 the big zero

Shut the hell up, you have now reached troll status.

JPeterman on November 6, 2012 at 10:51 PM

well…Warren met the customers needs (i.e. her customers are fruitcakes in MA)..same with DE and the south side of Chicago.

and, let’s be honest..the left has a well oiled, ruthless machine which the right can only dream of.

for example, Miami Dade is being held back (my guess) waiting for the panhandle results

ruthless…disciplined

it is a business to them…one that have worked years at

r keller on November 6, 2012 at 10:48 PM

Thought about that… maybe it’d be best if the Republicans advertised themselves as the giving party and played the game but that’s what Bush did in 2000… When Bush gives out $300 to all taxpayers as a rebate, the left mocks him and Futurama made an entire episode out of mocking him… When Obama did the SAME EXACT THING he was a hero…

And besides, what’s the point of lying to the electorate just to get our way? Do the ends really justify the means? (Sure I’d be alot happier… but what’s that say about the state of the electorate of our country?)

Fox: Minnesota to Obama

portlandon on November 6, 2012 at 10:52 PM

This isn’t a Romney problem, it’s a GOP problem. We are making no gains whatsoever tonight. In fact we are down a senator.
