Super weird report over at Seattle Weekly.
After 4204 pulled ahead yesterday, this is what they wrote:
Simple Majority Losing Ground
Posted yesterday at 4:54 pm by Laura Onstot
After coming within 2,000 votes in the morning tally, the Simple Majority for Schools folks are down this afternoon by 6,532. There are still votes coming in, but when a measure passes in five of 39 counties, outstanding ballots isn’t necessarily a good thing. Measure 4204 picked up 58.5 percent of the vote in King County, where 402,801 people cast a ballot. 156,994 people in Pierce County turned out on the measure and it there by more than 52 percent. Throw in a couple more high population county losses and you’ve got a problem on your hands.
We’ll check in tomorrow.

A commenter—they actually had one about 5 hours later—set them straight:
Can you do Simple Arithmetic?
Every other news outlet has been able to figure out that Simple Majority is LEADING in the polls, and the trend is positive. There aren’t any more “high population county losses” left uncounted.
No wonder nobody reads this blog.
