LANDSLIDE...!!!

831 of 3423 precincts are in...24% of total

Walker - 61% (297,626)
Barrett - 38% (185,706)

23 POINT LEAD!!!

Intrade has Walker win at 99.7%

Intrade has Obama's re-election chances DROPPING - from 52.2% earlier tonight to 50.9% as of this moment.

I am now going to go open a bottle of champagne.

I’ve been convinced that for the past 6-9 months, conservatives have shunned polling groups and just letting their vote speak for them.

“That's exactly what I do”

I suspect many WI Dems said one thing but pulled a different lever come today, a very good sign for Nov.
