Primary Night Election Thread

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

Our Howard County Republican Central Committee is having a meeting tonight, so I will not be able to be around at least at the start of the vote counting.

In Indiana, the polls close at 6pm in part of the state and 7pm part of the state. The big statewide race to watch here is the primary on the Republican side to see who will be the US Senate nominee to take on presumed Democratic nominee Brad Ellsworth.

The polls in North Carolina and Ohio close at 7:30pm in both states. On the statewide level, the real action is on the Democratic side where Democrats in both states are choosing their respective US Senate nominees. The polls so far seem to suggest Lee Fisher has a decided edge in Ohio over Jennifer Brunner. In North Carolina, the polls have shown Elaine Marshall in the lead, but the real question is whether she can get to 40% to avoid a runoff election against the likely second place finisher Cal Cunningham.

The official results in Indiana can be found here.
The official results in North Carolina can be found here.
The official Results in Ohio can be found here.

Like I said above, I will be out for the start of the vote counting. I did see Public Policy Polling will be having a Live Blog at their website for the results in North Carolina, which should be interesting.

Ayotte Dominating In NH, Dems Lead In OH

As I sit here watching the Orioles home opener with the score already 3-3 in the first inning of their home opener, we did get that poll from Scott Rasmussen for the US Senate race in New Hampshire.

US SENATE – NEW HAMPSHIRE (Rasmussen)

This poll was done April 7th among 500 likely voters. For more polls from New Hampshire, click here. We also got a poll from the leftists at Daily Kos and Research 2000 that, to no one’s surprise, lean towards the Democratic candidates in Ohio.

US SENATE – OHIO (Research 2000/DK)
Lee Fisher (D) 43%
Rob Portman (R) 39%

Jennifer Brunner (D) 41%

Ted Strickland (D-inc) 45%
John Kasich (R) 40%

This poll was done April 5-7 among 600 likely voters. It continues to be amazing how differently Rasmussen and PPP see the Ohio electorate than do Research 2000 and Quinnipiac. There are 10% swings in their numbers. For more polls from Ohio, click here.

I’m missing the Orioles home opener, but I’ll be at the Opening Night game tomorrow night….
