Voting machines and miracle wins
Chuck Hagel was an unknown millionaire when he decided to run for one of Nebraska’s U.S. Senate seats in 1996. Initially Hagel trailed the popular Democratic governor, Ben Nelson, who had been elected in a landslide two years earlier. Three days before the election, however, a poll conducted by the Omaha World-Herald showed a dead heat, with 47 percent of respondents favoring each candidate. Managing editor of the Gallup Poll stated that "We can’t predict the outcome."
Hagel’s victory in the general election, invariably referred to as an "upset," handed the seat to the Republicans for the first time in eighteen years. Hagel trounced Nelson by fifteen points. Harper's Magazine wrote that "even for those who had factored in the governor’s deteriorating numbers and a last-minute barrage of negative ads, this divergence from pre-election polling was enough to raise eyebrows across the nation."
Until shortly before the election, Hagel had been chairman of the company whose computerized voting machines would soon count his own votes: Election Systems & Software (then called American Information Systems). Hagel stepped down from his post just two weeks before announcing his candidacy. Yet he retained millions of dollars in stock in the McCarthy Group, which owned ES&S. And Michael McCarthy, the parent company’s founder, was Hagel’s campaign treasurer.
In the 2002 election, Hagel won an astonishing 83 percent of the vote—among the largest margins of victory in any statewide race in Nebraska’s history. And with nearly 400,000 registered Democrats on the rolls, his opponent David Matulka managed to scrape up only 70,290 votes.
