Commie Democrat holds TINY LEAD in meaningless Pennsylvania special election!! [Updated]

10:55 PM EST: OH C’MON JUST CALL IT FOR SOMEONE GEEZ MAN!!

UGH. LAME.

10:03 PM EST: Wow they still haven’t called it yet.

Original post below:

With early results in, the commie Democrat Conor Lamb is leading, much as most people thought he might.

Now why do I say it’s meaningless? Well the district is going to vanish soon. So this vote is mostly pointless. The media will make a big deal out of it because they want to be a bellwether for Trump’s impending defeat in the midterms – and maybe it is. But the election itself, is mostly meaningless.



From NPR:

This special election was triggered by the resignation of former Rep. Tim Murphy, who stepped down after it was revealed that he — an anti-abortion-rights congressman — had had an extramarital affair and pressured his mistress to terminate a possible pregnancy.

Because of court-ordered redistricting, the district as it is drawn now will cease to exist come Election Day 2018, and neither Saccone nor Lamb will even live in the rejiggered seat. So the fact that Republicans are spending so heavily to save what’s essentially a phantom district underscores what is on the line: They don’t want a loss in such a GOP stronghold to spur even more panic among their ranks that Trump is dragging them down.

Meanwhile, Democrats are salivating for an upset that will further galvanize their energetic base hoping for a blue wave in November. To this point, since Trump has been president, Republicans have underperformed in GOP-held House special elections but still won all five of them.

Here are some earlier results:

At 36%:

At 30%:

At 17%:

Yeah that dude is losin’.

Update:

Yeah, kinda.
