With 80.6 percent of the vote recounted, the known difference between Coleman and Franken has for the first time grown greater than the audited and adjusted original count differenct of 215. The difference is now, by my rekoning, a whopping 238. This, by Norm Coleman’s standards, is a virtual landslide!!!

But that number is fairly small in comparison to the 3594 votes that are currently contested by both camps, and the thousand or so potentially contested absentee ballots.

It is still the case that anything could happen.

    I don’t think it’s happening for Franken. I would ask what’s wrong with Minnesota for voting for Coleman but normally you’re sane.
