Union County, Indiana

posted by on May 6 at 21:59 PM

Uh… we’re all losing our shit here about the mayor of Gary, Indiana, and all those late returns from Lake County and Democratic machines and blah blah blah. And meanwhile there are still NO RESULTS in from Union County, Indiana. It’s the last little dot of white on the NYT map.


What the fuck is going on? There are 7,226 people living in Union County. Did no one in Union County vote? Can no one in Union County count?

I can't believe that more people don't find these maps frightening. Because running a nominee that does well among urban liberals and not rural areas has worked so well in the past two elections.

No one in union county had a valid ID.

And Josh - have you ever been to a rural area? They're rural because no one lives there.

Marion County still has 2% not reporting. at the percentages Obama is getttin there this is a net gain of over 12,000 votes. No small prize at this point

Dems win cities—and when they win them by large enough margins, which they do by energizing voters, they win whole states.

msnbc just called IN for clinton but that doesn't mean much at this point.

For goodness' sake, this is Indiana. Yes, some areas are slow to report. You should see the little old ladies running the polling stations. They've probably got record turnouts and totally swamped systems. It's not exactly surprising.

Before you get too excited, realize that WASHINGTON STATE hasn't finished counting yet (we're still at 96% in) -- and might never do so.
