First whole states close in 12 minutes.
Indiana was a state with lots of fraudulent registrations. Any victory dependent on these fraud states is going to be challenged in court.
Right, we knew Gary would make it closer due to the black vote.
Expect many red states with large black cities to make McCain’s win closer than Bush, like Atlanta will surely make McCain’s win more norrow than with Bush.
Do not be surprised if IN goes Blue this year. There are an awful lot of white, upper middle and middle-class, suburban professional, moderate Republicans(especially women) who are splitting and voting OBama this year. I am surrounded by them and they all are pro-choice and voting against Sarah. Add in the fraud in Center Township/Indianapolis and “The Region” area around Gary and it may not be a good night here for McCain.
Florida does indeed close at 7:00 PM but remember that Florida sits in two time zones. So, technically, Florida closes at 7:00 PM Central time which is 8:00 PM Eastern.
In essence, Florida closes at 8:00PM East Coast Elitist Time.
Indiana and Kentucky with their early returns both show how things will go for McCain. Bush won both with 60% in 2004. McCain is running 10% points back in IN and 5% back in KY what Bush did. These are real returns, no polls. Unless these numbers change in these early states, it is out go the lights for McCain.
Amen! (from an old lurker/newbie poster)
Hey, Texas here - we close at 7 central 8 eastern
Placemark for Missouri..
Lookit all. Bush won Indiana by 400K+ votes in 2004 (20%). If Obummer gets a swing of 200K votes in Indiana for a win, it’s going to be an early night...
Any early leads in FL is good news because the conservative bedrock of FL is in the panhandle. We in the Florida Panhandle will deliver all 27 electoral votes for Sarah if the rest of the state can stay nose to nose with the RATS.
According to CNN....Gary,IN has not come in....neither has Bloomington...and only a small portion of Indianapolis.
You know, there may be one vote to keep the dems from a filibuster-proof senate, so I’m glad he won. You should be too, unless you just want to burn the whole place down.
wow. FL just jumped toward obama...dang
We have to get McConnell across the finish line in KY
Mac needs to start pulling ahead in IN
[Whats going on in INDIANA??]
MAJOR vote fraud coming in from bordering ILLINOIS!
Um...you wanna wait for ALL of the state to come in first?
VA 7 to the Republicans. This is a gain.
