As I write this with 37% of the vote reporting it is 50%-50% with Prosser leading by a mere 1884 votes so we have no idea how this is going to turn out.
So I don’t know which of my two questions apply but here they are:
If Prosser wins: Considering the level of death threats and intimidation that has been used by the left in Wisconsin will a Prosser election result in overt violence by the left? My guess is yes.
If Kloppenburg wins: Will the right make an attempt to have her disallowed from ruling on the Walker case on the grounds that is has been pre-judged? (Yes it will fail) and the will that be the basis of an appeal all the way to the supreme court (maybe, but I don’t know if it would be taken as it is a purely state matter).
I think it is all going to come down to this election, either way the people Wisconsin will get the government and the court they deserve.
NOTE: In the time it has taken me to type this update has come in 38% reporting David Prosser (inc) 319,941 52% Kloppenburg 301,187 48% a lead of over 18k.
Update: As Prosser maintains his (slim 52% reporting David Prosser (inc) 412,848 50% Joanne Kloppenburg 409,965 50%) lead one more question. The left has been claiming that the Republicans have been acting against the will of the people of Wisconsin. Since this election has been painted as a referendum on Walker if Prosser wins does that claim now ring hollow?
Update 2: It’s after 1 a.m. EST and the election keeps going back and forth Prosser is up about 1500 with under 100 precincts left but 60 of them are pro Kloppenburg ones. What a race!
