This year the networks say they are guarding their exit poll results as if they were crown jewels. The results will be delivered to a "quarantine room," access to which will be granted to only two staffers from each network...
Given that the longer election night might not suit everyone's bedtime, I've prepared an hour-by-hour guide to tonight's results...
All times are Eastern. In a bow to tradition, we've listed states that went for George W. Bush two years ago in red and those that went for John Kerry in blue. The letters after state names indicate governor and senate races, with the incumbent party in the appropriate color (independents in black).
Polls close in these two states at 6 p.m. local time, which means the eastern portions will end voting at 6 EST. The key races in both states will be a bevy of close House races featuring GOP incumbents.
In Indiana, three GOP House incumbents have been trailing their Democratic challengers in October polls, albeit with survey samples so small the margin of error is large. Watch Rep. Mike Sodrel in the Ninth District. If he wins, it will mean it's unlikely Republicans will face a huge Democratic wave and lose 30 seats or more. If Rep. Chris Chocola in the Second District should survive, the GOP may wind up losing 20 seats or fewer. If Rep. John Hostettler also comes home to victory in the Eighth District, there is a good chance the GOP will retain its House majority. Indiana's Senate race isn't competitive; Republican Dick Lugar will easily win a sixth term.
Kentucky has two barn burners. Republican Rep. Anne Northup has held Louisville's Third District for five terms...

How are things going on the East Coast?
I don't know about the other states, but in WV the first requirement to be the Republican nominee (sacrificial lamb) is you MUST be a self financing multi-millionaire because the Republican party isn't going to give you the time of day or act like they know you, let alone spend one red cent on your campaign.
Lousy up here (per usual)
Please FReepmail me if you want on or off my miscellaneous ping list.
Your link does not paint a pretty picture for the Republican party.
bump this thread to get rid of the rest
Evil walks among us and she be it.
Look at Assachussets...They just re-elected Drunko Kennedy for the ten billionth time. Gee what a suprise. I swear this whole east coast must have thorazine in the water, I don`t even have to guess that putz Patches will be re-elected as well. "Oh so what if he drives completely blotto like his father! He must be re-elected over and over and over as well!"
Two words: TERM LIMITS
Crist (R) with about 55% of the vote over Davis and Nelson running away from Harris (R)
No surprises here.
Is it looking as bad there as it does Down here?
Speaker Pelosi. I feel ill!!!!
