Heads Up



SO's Political rules, as set out here

Preemptive ATS Strategies For A Smooth Election Day(s)

and here

A Call To Action: Ending The Political Game on ATS

Political trolling, name calling and bickering will not be tolerated.

It is possible to have an election and be civil with each other.

Play nice please

uh, I don't have anything to cite this, but I remember correctly since I was watching CNN TV on my computer. *BTW great tool*

Preliminary results from Kentucky and Indiana:

Kentucky: McCain leading 64 to 35, expected for McCain
*Update* McCain is projected to take it--10% reporting

Indiana: McCain just took back Indiana with 4% reporting, 51-48--this means that McCain still has a chance on Indiana

edit to add indiana

Remember though!

These are preliminary, these are far no way the final result, only a small percentage of the polls are these, only between 40,000 people reported by CNN in Indiana.

At least we have some definite numbers at this point.

By the way, CNN TV, Great Tool--edition.cnn.com...

And so the numbers game begins!

This is going to be a gripping night, if I were McCain / Obama this would be killing me!

Preliminary numbers only yes, but lets see what happen in Indiana.

Kentucky just called for McCain by MSNBC.

I think I just heard Vermont called for Obama - I could be wrong... was typing

Yes, interesting, CNN projected Obama win Vermont with nothing reporting--but yes, he is expected to take

MSNBC officially called Vermont for Obama.

This was expected though, McCain was first out of the gate with Kentucky.

Can't wait for the big ones!!

Okay, 7:21 ET update for McCain:

Kentucky has been called for McCain
Vermont is been called for Obama

Indiana is very very very close at this moment-McCain 50 Obama 49 with 9% reporting

Florida- 0% reporting , but is showing a McCain leading 47,000 yo 41,000

Virignia is showing a 10% lead for McCain 1% reporting

Way it is looking, McCain has a strong early start---it might be able to pull through.

BTW neither McCain or Obama supporter-
update in about 8 minutes

I don't trust that Florida result. Some guy named Thomas Stevens apparently has 50,000 votes right now, according to Fox News' interactive map. In Pasco County, Obama has 52%, Other has 47%, and McCain has 0%.

EDIT: Now they've cleared that problem up. Looks like Miami-Dade numbers are coming in. Obama is up 60-39 in that particular county, not surprisingly.

Okay, update

McCain:
Kentucky

Obama:
Vermont

Toss up
Virgina--leading McCain 10% with 8% reporting
Flordia---leading McCain 8% with 0% reporting
Indiana---leading McCain 3% with 22% reporting
Georgia---leading McCain 50% with 1% reporting
Flordia--- leading Obama 10% with 9% reporting


West Virgina just closed

North Carolina is showing extremely early support for Obama with less than 1%

But with 2 million reporting so far

Obama- 1,093,018 51%
McCain-1,029,510 48%

Looking good for McCain but we have a long night ahead.

Indiana and Virgia are looking like battlegrounds

Okay, update

McCain:
Kentucky
***South Carolina

Obama:
Vermont

Obama is coming out strong now, but McCain still leading in electorl, partly because only 0 or 1% of precincts voting yet for high Obama states. McCain is also ahead in Virginia right now, and losing heavily in Florida and North Carolina.


*LARGE UPDATE*

Obama
77
52%
2,650,425

McCain34
47%
2,369,677


McCain is starting to win crucial states except for Flordia and North Carolina.

Many Obama states are being called very early... so don't worry.

On the news, Karl Rove predicted a Obama landslide

2 Counties I know McCain will win have yet to be counted. Including my home county of Hillsborough where McCain led by 3 points. Hopefully I am right, but yeah I need some aspirin.
