Election Day: 2013apalooza
Keep Calm and Carry On
Public Advocate Bill de Blasio is unsurprisingly on track to have a very nice night, according to exit polls conducted by Edison Research for media outlets including The New York Times and Wall Street Journal.
The survey even shows Mr. de Blasio possibly crossing the necessary 40 percent threshold to avoid a Democratic primary runoff altogether, an accomplishment once thought to be impossible just a few weeks ago in the turbulent mayoral race.
In a conference call this afternoon, President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign had one central message for their supporters when Election Day arrives tomorrow: They should “keep calm,” even if they hear snippets of information favoring Republican Mitt Romney.
“My warning, we need to stay calm for much of the day,” Stephanie Cutter, Mr. Obama’s deputy campaign manager, said, touting thousands of early ballots already submitted by voters. “We’ve already banked a pretty big portion of our vote.”
