a. It all comes down to a thousand people in Wisconsin who won't think about the election till the morning of.

Is this sentence grammatical?
Is it acceptable in formal English or is it colloquial?

My problem is with the last bit: 'till the morning of'. To me the sentence sounds incomplete. I want to ask 'of what?'. But the meaning is quite understandable in the context.

This is from the show Saturday Night Live. I didn't find a written version, but it can be heard here:


From about 5:05 to 5:15 or so.

Many thanks

    Thank you Grassy.

    That's what I thought the correct version would be, but that's not what she says. So I guess the other version must be acceptable in spoken English.

    Many thanks
