Hillary's Nearly 64%
With a bit written on the Board of Elections' chipping away at Eliot Spitzer's mandate by (reasonably) including blank ballots in its final vote count, it's worth noting that Hillary slipped too from the 67% reported election night.
Her final tally: 63.96% of the vote to John Spencer's 29.6%. Actually, this may spin better for Hillary: fewer than 30% of New Yorkers voted for her Republican opponent. Worth a try?
In any case, time to revisit that prediction contest I did over at The Daily Politics, in which I said I'd wait for final results to give a prize. Now that I'm no longer in any position to hand out Daily News swag, it's kind of a relief to see that not one contestant guessed 64%.
(And yes, i too got sick of seeing my photo next to every entry here.)
