Walker Continues to Lead

Refresh often for updates.

With 19% of the vote now counted in the Wisconsin recall:

Walker 258,140 (60.5%)
Barrett 165,720 (39.1%)

Walker is getting more support than last election in his precincts, while Barrett is getting less.  My early take is that voters, no matter what party they are, believe that a candidate needs to break the law to be recalled.  So even though at least half of Wisconsin voters disapprove of Walker's performance, they might let him win this and then get him next time.

Also, it could signal that voters are fine with the last good jobs being shipped overseas and that no American worker should have a great job anymore.  Would be an extremely disheartening result and prospects for our kids and grandkids.
