  •  Again, false equivalency (7+ / 0-)

    We are talking about more than a half a million uncounted ballots that we can already see are heavily leaning Democratic in a race separated by less than 80,000. Of the provisional ballots that have been counted, Carmona is getting them nearly 2-1. There are also other closer races, such as Barber/McSally where McSally, the tea party candidate, is leading by 81 votes.

    •  And 2/3 of just provisional ballots (3+ / 0-)

      would close the gap tremendously. A 2-1 edge in the 172k provisionals would pick up roughly 57,000 votes for Carmona, less whatever portion are denied. That would bring him within 22k of Flake. To win the race Carmona would need to get just 52.4% of the remaining 460,000 uncounted votes. It's not at all inconceivable that voter suppression targeting Dems or sluggish processing of votes in urban areas could result in the pool of uncounted votes skewing democratic at such a modest level.
