How the recount favors Franken

Scott Rafferty does a nice job explaining why the hand count in Minnesota favors Al Franken.

It's the same reason a Missouri recount would favor Barack Obama. In short, voter intent in a hand recount of paper ballots can be discerned with the intended candidate getting the vote that was missed by the scanner. Add to this the fact that the vast majority of undervotes are in Obama territory, and you have Senator Al Franken.
