That Even The Blind Shall See

After the ballots counted today, Harry Mitchell has a larger lead than he did on election night. His margin has increased by 544 votes, to over 6,000 votes--6,499 to be precise. There are probably 20,000 ballots left to count in CD 5, but they are (as were today's count) apparently ballots cast closer to election day, after independents and marginal R's had started breaking for Mitchell. He's doing better than Hayworth did among those voters than Hayworth did with the earlier uncounted early ballots that couldn't be processed before counting stopped election night.

This result was pretty obvious to people who understand this stuff last week, but with these new numbers, maybe even the willfully obstinate will have to wake up and smell the coffee.
