Alabama Apocalypse: The Jones-Moore Open Thread

Politics • Views: 38,371

If you’re really going to drag me kicking and screaming into acknowledging reality, Roy Moore is probably going to beat Doug Jones for the US Senate tonight in Alabama.

Because, hey. It’s Alabama. It’s not like there isn’t some history behind this.

And as I write, Moore is leading 54-44 with 26% of the vote counted. So be prepared to acknowledge reality. But another aspect of that reality is that is Moore wins, the Republican Party will be forever associated with a child molester.

In the meantime, here’s an open thread to keep up with the Alabama Apocalypse, while hoping for an upset that probably won’t come.

UPDATE at 12/12/17 8:01:12 pm by Charles Johnson

The upset came after all!

All folks that voted for Jones are winners because they didn’t vote to elect a pedophile.

The reddest counties are coming in fast. Birmingham/Jefferson County still has only a quarter of its precincts in. Even less from Montgomery and Huntsville. Those will be good for Jones.

It’s not over yet - but neither is it over yet. There are clearly sane people to be found in Alabama. We’ll see if there are enough of them.

NYTime Needle O’ Fate is at Jones +8.3% and 90% chance of winning the last time I looked. The key seems to be BIG turnout in black precincts and low turnout in white, Trump-base precincts.

Fingers crossed.

One of the things I hate about cable news - even Rachel tonight, and especially Steve Kornacki doing his map-savant bit over in the corner with her - is that they are NEVER good at the kind of “which precincts aren’t in yet, how many votes will they deliver, and for whom” analysis that the NYT stats geeks excel at.

And the numbers Rachel is using are lagging way behind the NYT numbers, too.

Shiplord Kirel, live from behind wingnut lines  Dec 12, 2017 • 6:32:30pm

In the last thread it was pointed out that the Repervs will scream “FRAUD!” if the late reporting urban areas push Jones over the top. This is even though their own shills and barkers readily acknowledge that urban areas (usually dog whistled as “inner cities”) usually do vote more heavily Democratic.

Nope. I refuse to be disappointed.

Jones is doing better than Hillary did in many of the white Alabama counties and Jones is closer to Moore in many of the same areas that Moore dominated bigly in the past.

I’d be disappointed if Jones got stomped by the usual numbers you see in Alabama. That doesn’t appear to be the case.

Little victories.

And as I said earlier…the Republican now have a different issue. Do they keep him and look bad nationally or do they boot him and piss of those that hate McConnell and the other “established” GOP members.

Television is based on the horserace … reporting minute-by-minute results with no context would show Mr. Jones gaining on Mr. Moore, and a watch for the photo-finish.

re: #103 Anymouse 🌹

Poll aggregators such as FiveThirtyEight focus on what they believe will be the likely outcome as best as they can model it.

Television is based on the horserace … reporting minute-by-minute results with no context would show Mr. Jones gaining on Mr. Moore, and a watch for the photo-finish.

Since precincts report randomly, it’s all kind of pointless until the last significant one calls in

We’re going to hear it first on Prison Planet, then on Breitbart, and eventually it will trickle down to Fox News, but the theory will spread that the Democrats held back their precinct returns to find out how much Moore “won” by, and therefore manufactured fraudulent ballots in order to make up the difference.

Black turnout is absolutely vital to Democratic wins. Which augurs strongly against the Bernie wing of the - well, they’re not even really IN the party, but you get the point.

Trying to catch up, but you guys are going too fast for me!

Finger, eyes and toes crossed—don’t want to jinx it.

A Jones win would be a spectacular end to a pretty rewarding day. Went to the Christmas party for clients at our women’s shelter/family justice center. It was phenomenal. A room with gifts for the kids to shop for their moms. A room where they could make crafts/gift bags and decorate them. A room with games and prizes for the kids. A gigantic room with a potluck buffet of main courses and desserts and candy and sweets. A gathering room, where Santa and Mrs. Claus made an appearance. Every room decorated to the max.

The sweetest kids (and the moms as well) and a group of volunteers who give you back faith in humanity. It was so heartwarming to see these families getting to kick back and actually have fun in a safe, protected environment.

I brought food, bought gifts, wrapping paper, gift bags etc. etc. and also put 4 Target gift cards into the mix for them to give to clients. I love this organization. Every single person I’ve met there is outstanding.

Now if Alabama does right by Jones, it will be the best day I’ve had since election day last year. (Oh, and thanks to the peeps who have been touting Bakari Sellers—he’s the real deal and the future.)

re: #456 BeachDem

And it brings new hope to other Southern states (ya know, the ones Bernie said we should ignore). My state chair is ON IT already with this email:

Senator-elect Doug Jones proved tonight that we can win in the South.

We have to focus on kitchen table issues. We have to speak to the decency of the people of South Carolina. We have to believe that we can win.

That last bit is the most important. If we believe we can win, we’ll put a candidate up in every Republican-held seat in the State House. If we believe we can win, we will elect Democrats to statewide offices in South Carolina again.

And this ought to scare the shit out of Republicans. Here in Texas, we have a Democrat running for every House seat, every state senate seat, and 80% of the state House seats.

I wish Democrats had thought to do this earlier, but sometimes you gotta get punched in the gut to get the message.

Adult beverages are great for a celebration. But I suggest the nature of tonight’s win calls for a proper smoke, or a bite of a nice edible cannabis treat. If only the internet would let me share the flower in front of me…

We couldn’t find any before the session tonight, so my bass player and I had to settle for beer and bourbon. Could have done worse.

Please don’t let it get lost that Jones will make a fine senator.

Agree with the sentiment, but unfortunately the immediate focus is likely to obsess on the losers (Moore, Trump, the GOP in general, religious nuts, etc.) - Senator Jones (D-AL) is probably going to be an afterthought for a while. But it’s OK, he has at least four years to show his stuff…..

re: #575 Cheechako

Also remember trump picked Sessions out of the Senate for AG so the whole frickin’ GOP mess is trumps fault.

Well, your conclusion is quite correct, IMO, but a year ago, the choice of a sitting Senator from a ( nominally ) ruby-red state for AG probably didn’t seem like too risky a move. I’m sure the WH and GOP leadership thought that the seat would stay in “safe” Republican hands, It being Alabama and all. TBH, I would have agreed with that assessment - up until quite recently. But I’m not too proud to admit being wrong! 😅

It is a wonderful evening, but until all votes are counted, I won’t feel really secure. We have to remember Doug Jones did not win just because he was a terrific candidate; that isn’t sufficient for a Democrat in a deep red state; it’s because Moore was an outstandingly terrible candidate and despite all his outrageous flaws, he would likely have won if there weren’t the allegations of his stalking teenage girls.

Thank you Deb. And especial thanks to the African American community for coming out in full force. There were still people who couldn’t vote because of Alabama voter suppression. We need to make sure that everyone who is American can vote and stop the tide of voter suppression throughout the country.

And maybe the Franken sacrifice actually helped by providing a significant distinction between Democrats who do not support “predators” and a party that voted for a pedophile for the Senate and a predator for President.

This is pretty serious. These were additional restrictions put in two months AFTER Hastert got out of prison and is on probation. He can’t be in the same room with minors unless he’s got an adult minder there who has been informed of Hastert’s conviction (which was for structuring, a variety of money laundering) AND has been approved by the federal probation office AND the person treating Hastert for his sex offender treatment. I have to wonder what was in the sealed report handed over to the judge that caused the judge to put that kind of restriction into place.
