Early K-4 Results Promising…

Filed in National by on April 11, 2017

I mean, real promising.  At least in early voting and absentee voting, the D is not only outperforming the registration figures by huge margins, he is doing well enough to win the district if the day of election vote totals do only about 2/3rds as well.

I know it’s early, but the early results are stunning. He’s up 58%-41%.  The same day votes, though, are considered more likely to skew R.

  1. To give you a sense of the scope, Harvey County’s early/absentee vote went to the D Thompson by a 19% margin…despite the fact that the early turnout in the deep red county was plus-15% R.

  2. Still, only 11% of the vote in. Thompson up 54-44.

  3. Even noted vote suppressor and SOS of Kansas Kobach is concerned:

    “Kobach: “Regardless of what the result is, I don’t think you take it either way as a ringing endorsement or an indictment (of Trump) .”

  4. Getting closer, 51-48. A big vote dump came in from the largest R county in the district. However, virtually none of the election day vote is in from the Wichita area, which is where Thompson is expected to win, if he’s going to win.

    Word is this race was more about Governor Sam Brownback , who is VERY unpopular, than Trump.

  6. 50-48 Thompson as a small red county reported all its votes.

    The margin in Wichita will determine the winner.

  7. Another red county reports all its votes. 50-49 Thompson. Still no updates from Wichita for awhile.

  8. Down 600 votes now. But only 66 of over 250 precincts from Sedgwick County, which is the D stronghold, have reported.

    I’m cautiously optimistic. Unless Kobach is working his magic…

  9. R up by almost 2000, 50-48. Still a lot of Wichita unreported.

  10. Not looking good. Thompson’s margin is down to 8% in Sedgwick. He needs to carry the county by at least that margin to win. Looks like the election day turnout could be decisive.

    Estes up by over 6K votes with not a lot outstanding. Republicans will hold this one. Georgia special may be more interesting.

    Estes now up by 9500 votes. Its over.
