Do I contradict myself…?
Anyway, one thing that is knowable is turnout, and how this year’s turnout compares to turnout in 2001.
The Miller campaign has been tracking this number, and their figures seem to have good news for whoever is getting votes out of Manhattan.
At 5:00 p.m., according to a Miller aide:
Manhattan was at 52% of 2001 turnout;
Brooklyn was at 35% of 2001 turnout;
The Bronx was at 30% of 2001 turnout;
Queens was at 22% of 2001 turnout.
If those numbers are solid, and hold up, it would be good news for Gifford. Or Virginia. Or Anthony.
Indeed, if we knew who people were voting for…we’d know who they were voting for.
