  •  OK, but King has 300,000 uncounted (1+ / 0-)

    (and more still to reach the KCE offices.)

    A tad more than 4000.

    •  Yeah.. not trying to say it's not all good.. (0+ / 0-)

      But at the same time I was just pointing out that this little state of ours is really unpredictable and give an eastern WA update.  And it really is King/Thurston County against most of the rest of the state at this point, since the rest of the counties are, at best about 50/50 and most of eastern wa is .  That makes eastern WA more than 4000 votes here - and will explain what's going on if Rossi doesn't go away as fast as expected.  There are 300,000 plus votes in over on the east side over here, where only about 50% are currently counted and it's 60-40 Rossi.  look at the maps and you'll see what I'm talking about..  Eastern washington isn't done yet.

      •  yes, I get it (0+ / 0-)

        Believe me, I get it.  My memory of 2004 is crystal-clear.

        I just wish San Juan County was bigger.  They're usually even bluer than King.

          I've been kinda hanging around here (DKOS) since 2004 and have seen your work.

          My guess is that San Juan County is that liberal because of all the Seattle-area people who retire there. Otherwise, it seems like it would be more like Whatcom in its political profile--Democratic leaning but hardly a bastion of liberalism.

          And people retire out there (or relocate as artists or whatever) because it's low-key and small-scale. If it was bigger, it wouldn't be San Juan County.

          Either that, or it has something to do with being close to Canada. Were it not for the German Kaiser way back then they would BE Canadian.

          Larsen's remote hope could hinge upon slower returns from more urban precincts in Snohomish County that are more Democratic than the county as a whole. But that's really grasping at straws. He's almost certainly toast.
