BINTUMANI FORUM

After all, if every economic issue is framed as a struggle between a hard-working white middle class and undeserving minorities, then workers of all shades will be left fighting for scraps while the wealthy withdraw further into their private enclaves - Barack Obama

That’s the case according to several unofficial sources which include diaspora Liberians on the ground who support other candidates.

Who is running third? Brumskine or Cummings(aka ABC)?

A runoff between Weah and Sleepy Joe will favor Weah.  There is a wind of change blowing across West Africa - Nigeria, Gambia, Ghana and now Liberia.  Will Salone be next?

Seems like Jewel delivered the Kpelle vote big time. They are the largest bloc.

Masiola,

The selection of Jewel appears to have paid off for Weah

Check

http://elbcradio.com and http://www.necliberia.org

and cus on the four most populous counties. That will determine if this is going to a runoff

From reliable sources Weah has won Montserrado and Bong counties and Sleepy Joe has won Lofa. Sleepy Joe needs Nimba or it may be curtains. If anyone has info on Nimba please share.

At this rate a runoff may not be likely.

Masoila,

You can do a conservative extrapolation based on percentage of polling places reporting for all 15 counties (see link at end) to get an idea of whether or not there will be a runoff or not. I would have done so but I am driving and had to pull over to post this.

All reports I have read so far suggest a runoff.

One thing is clear, Weah will easily win this round. He has performed much better than he did when he first ran against Sirleaf in round 1 of the 2005 election.
