The Results Are In

In the next post, I took Blake Fontenay to task for seeming to argue both ends of an argument, saying that election turnout would be low or record-low in one article, while writing another that predicted unusually high turnout.

In a post-election write-up today, Blake says:
Only 103,226 of the city's 441,156 registered voters participated, including those who voted early, for a total turnout of 23.4 percent.
Only? Before, there was talk of turnout to match the former low record of 15% and yesterday he was writing of turnout approaching 35%.

Schizophrenia isn't a pretty thing to see. He really should pick one page and get on it.

I was thinking turnout might be close to 15%, so the actual turnout was surprise for me. Good to see, but still disheartening.
