Okay, I'm super confused as to what they're guessing at and what they're actually announcing as "projected winner."

Did a bunch of polls just close and they already know the results? I'm baffled here.

So who's 'winning' at the moment?? I live in Australia, have no idea if the votes are being counted as we speak, I assume it's televised? How long to you all know who's gonna be president?

according to CNN, so how can you say SC goes to McCain?
Because it's 1%, so overall percentages mean nothing. they are using exit polls, pre election polls, and common sense to call safe states. it isn't news. swing states are kept aside until more hard data comes in.

A bunch of polls just closed at 8, yes. Most of them are states that weren't going to be close. Only surprise is MSNBC has called Pennsylvania for Obama.

They have it at 103-34 in electoral votes.

ABC had that, too! CNN had some new states, but with 0% for both candidates, and a check mark next to Obama. WTF is going on here?

Vermont was called for Obama with 0% of the precincts in.
