Hoffman Now a 10:1 Dog

It may be that it is not to be for the tea-party movement in NY-23. The betting odds are crashing on Conservative Hoffman (aka anyone other than Owens.) There are votes to be counted before we call this one, but it is clear that the late polling did not fully reflect Scozzofava's endorsement of Owens in the race. Congressional races are notoriously tough to poll and call, this race was particularly turbulent and the news broke late -- all recipes for potential surprises.

In the official count, Owens still leads by 3% with 64% of the vote in, meaning that Hoffman would need to win by approximately 8 to 9% in the rest of the votes to win.

Interesting stuff.

By the way, does ANYBODY actually believe that President Obama is not glued to a TV watching election returns? Puh-leeze.
