They wanted Strange but ended up with stranger....
At any rate, IIRC Jones will have to run for reelection in 2020. With any luck the state Republican Party will find a reasonable sane candidate and get rid of Jones.
This write in business sounds very similar to the "But Hillary won the popular vote" caveat the Democrats were whining about last year. True, but irrelevant. So to all butthurt Moore supporters, I can only say GET OVER IT YOU LOST KEK LOL
The backtracking dribble is funny but what is astounding is that he (your man) never fails to make it all about him...... "I was right" and then qualify's it with some get out..... "the cards were stacked against him"
Really, whats his ego problem? Small cock? picked on at school by girls?
Needs a swift kick in the balls to be honest.
Good editorial from three of Alabama's four largest papers (Mobile, Birmingham and Huntsville):
The write-in was large enough to cover the spread between Moore and Jones.
If even half of those write-ins vote for Moore than Moore is Senator.
So yes the write-ins did have an affect on the election.
Sure. Like I said: true, but irrelevant. Jones won, Moore lost.
Don't beat yourself up, I am sure you could fly a space ship much better than that.
As they always do. In this case, they even had an effect. And @ohdeve is right: Both are now irrelevant.
Of course it's irrelevant now but it doesn't change my initial opinion. Doug Jones should be thanking all those people who did a write-in vote. Without them he's not a Senator.
All the people who didn't want Moore as a Senator.
And your mama.
Okay. So can we all agree that if half of the people that voted against Moore had voted for Moore, he would have won?
The above is incorrect.
Write In 1.7%
This isn't really my week.
Okay if almost all the write-ins went to Moore he'd be Senator.
I've reported you all for math in the Red Room.
And that scenario requires over 20,000 people to have been so befuddled by this ballot --
-- that they wrote in a guy whose name was already on the ballot, and immediately above the write-in line, no less.
Even for Alabama, that seems like a stretch.
I think he means if they had voted for Moore instead of writing in a candidate.
Got it -- misunderstood the post.
If the write-in people had instead voted for Moore he'd be Senator.
A write in vote against Moore was still a vote against Moore.
I think you're overstating the importance of the write in votes to the outcome. The real takeaway is that a lot of voters stayed home.
No see the Governor is a...*shudder*....WOMAN.
A lucky Lt. Gov who move up when the Luv Guv got booted.
Roy will be happy to tell them it's sinful to have a woman in office.
Your maths, they are flawed.
how do you know that if forced into a binary choice all of them would have voted for Moore? (as opposed to staying home for one obvious alternative)
You mean an editorial from the New Yorkers that own those papers.
Well, naturally. Alabamans aren't that erudite.
