She's up by just over 5,000 votes with 95% of the vote in.

There's a single county (Oliver County) that has not reported any precincts.  Total population: 1,100 souls.  Everything else is 60% to 90% in, and those counties should cancel each other out (one "big" D county is at 60%, the others are heavy R)

Just thought I'd point this out, since it may have been lost in the shuffle...

EDIT 1: Oliver County is in, in its entirety: 555 (R) to 446 (D).  

What's left?  40% of Barnes County (pop. 11,000) which currently is 55%-45% D
8% of Mercer County (pop. 8500) which is 61% R
20% of Dunn County (pop. 3500) which is 60% R
40% of Williams County (pop. 22,000) which is 66% R
17% of McKenzie County (pop. 6000) which is 70% R

EDIT 2:  Just back-of-the-envelope here, but no more than 80% of the population of each of these states is over the age of 18, and only 60% of so of voting age population is both registered AND an actual voter.  I don't see, at these margins, how Berg makes up the deficit with what's left...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
