Franken keeps gaining: Norm margin now 204

The Monday morning pre-recount numbers are moving, and the first adjustment is toward Al Franken. His 221-vote weekend deficit closed by 17 votes (to 204) as of 9:30 a.m.

Today is the last day for county canvass boards to meet, so the figure may shift quite a bit today

You can check any Braublog page for an up-to-the-minute margin report. It does the math for you based on the Secretary of State’s web figures.

As always, hat tip to Jeff Rosenberg for the fine margin-calculating widget.

[Update: Of course, five minutes after I wrote this, the widget is showing an error message. Hopefully, it will be fixed soon.]

    thanks for the widget, seems to be one of the quickest ways to find out the current “score”….

    above link is to state’s total from hennepin county.

    this has been changing throughout today already, as hennepin certifies.

    this morning’s totals from hennepin’s unofficial tally on their web site was 329,423 for franken and 237,684 for coleman.

    as of this comment, franken had picked up 15 votes in hennepin county. i’m hoping that the county is just getting started and that this will shift at least a few hundred more towards Al.

    ciao,
