I’m getting ready to watch Game 6 of the World Series. That’s where my main attention will be for as long as the game is competitive. Judging by past games, that might be four hours.
As for the Virginia race, I’ll be checking in on it from time to time, of course.
Early indications are that it will be close but that Youngkin has a small edge (which is what lots of people have been saying lately). This view is based on the fact that, in the early returns, Youngkin is running a little bit ahead of where he is in a model that has the race 50-50. In other words, he is doing a little better so far than what he needs to do to win. And this is said to be the case in a range of counties that have reported results.
However, it’s way to early to draw any firm conclusions about who will win. That’s how it looks to me, at any rate.
UPDATE: Here’s some good, seemingly important news from Henry Olsen:
Loudoun [County] has now clearly included its early vote in its total, as I thought, and the news is fabulous for Youngkin! He’s trailing by only 5.6% in a county Northam won by 20%, and with 15 precincts left that margin should shrink more. Ground Zero for CRT producing for Glenn.
