Who would have thought?

There are a lot of people today admitting they were wrong.

“Cedric did a stupendous job of turnout, which I would not have expected,” political analyst Elliott Stonecipher said in today’s Times.

“Probably every election observer outside of the Glover campaign did not think these changes in dynamics were possible. Glover proved all of us wrong,” LSUS associate professor of political science Jeffrey Sadow wrote in his blog.

“I can’t think of another race for mayor that had that high of a turnout,” said Caddo Registrar of Voters Ernie Roberson, who originally predicted 40 to 43 percent of registered voters would cast ballots Tuesday.

Historical voting patterns and internal polling couldn’t predict the dramatic shift that took place last night to give Glover a win.

Now the question is, ‘Can he continue to build on the momentum to effect real change?’
