I was surprised by that one. Walker was winning around midnight (I think polls closed at 9pm) by a few hundred, maybe a thousand votes and 99% of jurisdictions reported. By morning he had lost by 30,000. Glancing online, it looks like of the 47000 mailed in ballots, Evers (Walker’s opponent) took 40,000 of them.
As long as I’m looking, I also see that Brad Schimel was nudged out by 22,000 votes, of which 30,000 were mailed in.
For those that don’t know, Brad Schimel (Wisconsin Attorney General) was featured heavily in the second season of Making a Murderer as the one of the driving forces keeping Steven Avery in jail.
I know at least one person that I was talking to said they never really gave the AG a second thought, but after watching this had no problem voting against him. It kinda made me wonder if they timed the release of the series to come out right before the elections. Especially since the production of this season wasn’t nearly as good, imo.
