18. it's actually increased slightly to 3.6 or so in the last round of updates
it hasn't trended down like people have been thinking. it's been quite steady and slightly increasing.

90. Are you new to this place?
They do this all the time. Any time that there is an important news story, the moderators start "official" threads.

It doesn't mean that others can't be posted. They certainly won't be moved or locked - do you have any idea how much work that would be?

22. Does anyone know what the percentage turnout is?
Primaries usually have really low turnout, but I assume this is an exception, since it's gotten national media attention.

Any CTers know what the % turnout is?

39. I can't speak for the whole state, But in my town there didn't seem
to be a big turnout. For instance, there was less of a turnout there than if we were voting on our town budget. But I do live in a small town.

28. Time for Site to go down and count how many votes Joe needs to win
.... just like the Paul Hackett race in Ohio.

But then again, the Repubs want Joe and Lamont to both be in the general election so they can split the Dem vote and put a Repub in office.

31. Again, CTBob Reports Hartford going for Ned.
Here's what he says:


Reports coming in to the blog room are that Lamont won almost every precinct in Hartford -- if this is true, that's the ball game. Hard to get anything for attribution, but these are folks we have been working with all day.

32. Come on Ned .... Home stretch
Get that margin up ..... 9,000 votes + now .....
Come on let's get it to 15,000 votes

DU math somebody said that each point is 2,800 votes
so there is 13 % left or 36,400 votes not counted .....

Joe will need better then 65% of those to win.
