My Hillary-loving friend just admitted that she voted McCain.

"2 minutes and 4 seconds"

NYT has NH for obama, which isn't a big surprise.

I'm Canadian. Yet this is probably the most excited and nervous I've been for an election in a long time (probably since the Québec referendum in 95).

The whole world will be affected by this choice, to some extent. Can't wait to see how it unfolds!

Alderaan has gone for Obama.

Tatooine is too close to call.

South Carolina »
7:56 p.m. EST, Nov 4 '08
County Results | Map
McCain 11,912 44%
Obama 14,830 55%
1% of precincts reporting

according to CNN, so how can you say SC goes to McCain?

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?

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?
