News School Levies Measure Pulls Ahead…

Given what I wrote yesterday, I don’t have much of a right to cheer the news, but I still think it’s pretty cool.
Update: While King County’s drop certainly helped (60% yes), it’s the counties where the measure is losing overall but where batches of late returns are going 4204’s way that’s helping tip the scales.
Island County, for example, where the measure is still losing 51-48, scored 56 percent yes today.
Speaking of what I wrote yesterday—which in part, was this:
Additionally, while the measure remains behind in other counties, the deficit is generally shrinking with each successive return. In Pierce County, for example, 4204 was losing with 44.9 percent after the first returns. However, with successive batches in isolation coming in at 45.3, 46.6, 48.7, 49.9, and the latest batch actually ahead 50.3, the measure has ticked up to 46.7 percent overall. Counts like that can’t hurt…I should report that today’s batch from Pierce County hit 51.7%.
There are about 73,000 votes left to count statewide, and 32,000 of those are in King County.
