I am stunned that my guy could be so wrong on this one! He had Obama up by more than 10% yesterday. He called FL. too close in the 2000 Election saying the networks were wrong wrong wrong.

Kudos to the Clinton machine for making this a contest.

Tears may have won this one.

Hillary was up by 5% fifteen minutes ago, now it's back down to 3%. 39%-36%.

She gives up one more percent and it's the one percent race it was at the start an hour and a half ago.

Amazing reversal of what everyone thought would happen. This afternoon all the news was talking about was not if Obama would win, but how much of a blowout it would be. This is incredible.

It's a 2% race and 60% of the votes have yet to be counted. Don't count Obama out.

I'm not at all. I wouldn't be surprised if he wins. I am surprised that it's a race, and Hillary has even a prayer of winning.

He's not saying that at all. He's just saying that what looked to be a possible blowout (and I thought that as well, and I live here) has turned into a race so close that we won't know for a while longer. Even if Clinton ultimately loses, it will be far closer than anyone would have thought.

Really? I was bored to tears...

I don't understand why he doesn't even try with younger voters, I mean of course he'll get votes from you and those that are diehard Republicans but I just don't see him getting any independent or middle ground young people. He actually comes off older than he really is.

CNN keeps mentioning that the college towns (like Hanover (Dartmouth), Durham (UNH) and others) have not had their results reported, so this will really tighten up soon.

Of course, both of those places have a lot of students that aren't residents of NH, so I wonder how much of a difference it will really be.

I'm listening to the updates via NPR (CNN.com updates slowly on my very old PC ).

This basically leaves Romney NEEDING to win Michigan, or else he's done (if he isn't aleady).

It was predicted that nearly all of the independent vote in New Hampshire would go for Obama. Instead, McCain picked up almost half of them. If Obama loses in New Hampshire, it may be partly a result of McCains success among independents which was not supposed to happen. McCain is roughly the same age as Ronald Reagan, one of the most popular presidents in US history with all age groups. So age is not necessarily a turnoff for the young people.
